As a wedding photographer with over 17 years experience this venue is another of my favourites for offering a setting that enables me to produce stunning images that you'll cherish and make friends jealous of. The staff are superb and the memories you'll make there will last for years.

Having your wedding ceremony at Stubton Hall is a truly enchanting and memorable experience. The historic charm and picturesque beauty of this mansion create the perfect backdrop for wedding.

What about Confetti?

This always makes for fun dramatic images on a wedding and I always recommend to brides to purchase some for their guests before the day to ensure everyone can join in the fun.

It is always best to follow the advice of the venue on this too as they may have restrictions in place.

Group Photographs

Group photos are always a must on the wedding day and there are lots of options available for where you can take them. When I capture photographs for couples I usually see to have the sun behind them and this is no different for group shots. This helps avoid you and your guest squinting into the sun and can make for fab pictures.

As the sun sets at the back of the Hall during a wedding day this makes it ideal for group photos in front of the Hall or set against the gardens.

Couples Portraits

I always find that when the group photographs are finished this is the ideal time to spend taking some couples photographs. It allows you a little time away from your guests, just for the two of you, to reflect on the day and enjoy your time together without distraction.

Stubton Hall really is the perfect backdrop for creating timeless and breathtaking imagery. From the lush gardens to the grand halls and charming courtyards, every corner of this exquisite venue presents an opportunity to craft stunning portraits that reflect the unique essence of each couple.

With a keen eye for detail, artistic vision, and passion for storytelling, I just love to document the most cherished moments and emotions, ensuring that clients' wedding portraits at Stubton Hall become cherished heirlooms for generations to come.

Cutting The Wedding Cake

There are so many fab cake makers in and around Lincoln offering a whole host of options to meet your theme. Having the cake cutting captured by your photographer at the Hall is a great way to remember it before it all gets eaten.

The Evening Reception

Another one of my absolute favourite times of the day is the evening celebrations. As the sun draws down on the horizon the sunsets at the back of the estate are to die for. A great way to finish off the evening is with some EPIC wedding images.

Having a little time out to have your wedding photographs taken can be a really relaxed and fun time for couples.
