Stanway House Wedding Photography | Sarah & Chris


I was so happy Sarah and Chris asked me to be their Stanway House wedding photographer! It was the most gorgeous June day at this absolutely beautiful venue in the Cotswolds.

Chris and Sarah found us on the ISPWP, so I knew immediately that they placed a lot of importance on their wedding photography, and I was excited to chat more with them. The ISPWP is one of my favourite organisations and I’m honoured I’ve been placed on their Top 100 Wedding Photographers list, which as an international society is a real achievement for me!


After a fun pre-wedding getting-to-know-you shoot and seeing their chemistry, I was really looking forward to the day, and working at this stunning venue, a Jacobean manor house and water gardens. With jaw-dropping beauty at every turn, and features for any photographer to get excited about, it was a real treat to work as a Stanway House wedding photographer with such a gorgeous couple.

As a creative herself (check out her beautiful work here) Sarah put a lot of thought into the details of her wedding, and everything looked stunning, with handmade details and personal touches throughout the day, from the church ceremony to the evening entertainment, no detail was missed.

I was more than delighted to have my good friend James Rouse along as a second photographer for Sarah and Chris’s wedding, he was absolutely great to work with and everyone enjoyed having him along – thanks James! We were both bouncing around with excitement at all the possibilities and golden light we were blessed with, so another big thanks obviously must go to Sarah and Chris for being equally as excited and enjoying some time out with us!


Stanway House is the perfect location for your wedding in the Cotswolds, and if you’re thinking of getting married at Stanway and looking for a Stanway House wedding photographer, we would love to work there again so would love to chat with you! In deepest Cotswold Country, Stanway Tithe Barn is a stunning, stone, medieval building. Surrounded by acres of lawn, a duck pond, yellow stone cottages and unspoilt parkland, this is a beautiful venue for your wedding day, and a dream for photographers!

Stanway House and its Gatehouse provide a stunning backdrop for photos, and for your guests to relax and enjoy the surroundings.

Add the magnificent record breaking fountain and you have made your day unique, it was quite a display – I very nearly got absolutely soaked when I got too close and the wind changed!

Thank you, Sarah and Chris, for having us along and sharing your Stanway House wedding photography with James and I. We had a brilliant day and I loved reliving it whilst choosing images for this blog post!
