I’d love to share with you the unforgettable story of the Stockbridge wedding of Zoe and Darren at the Grosvenor Hotel.
This was my first opportunity to do some Stockbridge wedding photography at the Grosvenor Hotel so, as ever, I made sure to make a recce trip beforehand. It was great to meet up with Zoe so we could go through some specific shots that Zoe wanted. The recce trip was also a good opportunity to check out the Grosvenor Hotel in general and introduce myself to the lovely people there.
I was with Zoe and Darren from early in the day until the start of their wedding breakfast – getting lots of details while Zoe got ready in her room, taking some informal family portraits around the hotel with Darren, and then shooting the ceremony with some more formal group portraits afterwards while the guests enjoyed champagne and canapés.
Afterwards we sneaked away for some portraits of just Zoe and Darren. We started in the grounds of the Grosvenor Hotel and then went for a stroll through Stockbridge until we reached a spot we’d agreed beforehand would be lovely for some portraits. I do love wandering through town with a couple – it’s so lovely when passers-by stop to congratulate the couple.
Once we’d had our fun with the portrait shoot I let Zoe and Darren go back and prepare for their wedding breakfast, and I quickly shot some of the details of their table layouts and the cake, before finishing up with a staged cake cutting and I was on my way.
I delivered Zoe and Darren both colour and black-and-white photos from their Grosvenor Hotel wedding on a USB stick in a customised case. I love some of the black-and-whites. Colour’s important to your wedding, and I’ll always tell the story of the colours of your wedding, but when it comes to documenting the emotions of the day, nothing does it like black-and-white. It strips away all the distractions and just lets you concentrate on faces and expressions. So I’ve included a whole lot of black-and-white in the little slideshow of Zoe and Darren’s Stockbridge wedding.
Thanks so much to Zoe and Darren for choosing to share their Stockbridge wedding day with me! I hope you love their photos.
