I was super lucky enough to live really close to the beautiful town of Stamford many years ago and as I still have some connections there. A few years ago I shot Katy’s wedding in Toft. This time though, it was an absolute pleasure to be her sister Kelly’s Stamford Wedding Photographer. The wedding was held at the William Cecil. A hidden gem of a wedding venue that is just a stone throw away from the magnificent Burghley House.


Stamford Bridal Preparations

One of the great things about The William Cecil is that if your having both your bridal preparations and your ceremony here the rooms are great for getting ready in. The light in the rooms is perfect for creative elegant and beautiful wedding photos. One of my favourite moments from the bridal preparations at Kellys wedding though was when I was outside taking some shots of her dress and her two sisters and her daughter Grace came out to see what was going on.

An Outdoor Wedding Ceremony

In the UK you can never be sure if you will be able to pull of an outdoor wedding ceremony. I know Steve and Kelly had thier hearts set on having this and I’m super happy that the weather was just perfect for them. Later in the day just as the outdoor buffet started we had some crazy bad weather come in too so we were super lucky. Another amazing part of my job, especially as I know the couple too. Was having a front row seat to watch them get married in front of all their awesome family and friends.

A Bride And Her Bridesmaids

Weddings are all about people. Its the wedding guests made up of relatives, friends and one or two you may not even know! Your wedding party is made up of fathers and mothers of brides and grooms. Its the ushers and bridesmaids too. Kelly was super close to all her bridesmaids. Either really close friends or two of them being her sisters. I know how important these people are to her so it was important for me to be sure to capture this all for her.

As Kellys Stamford Wedding Photographer I had an amazing day photographing this wedding and its a shame all of the “Tuck” girls are married now but its great to now call them all friends. One of the other great thing about my job is making new friends all over the world.
