All of your married friends will say the same thing: your wedding day will come and go in the blink of an eye, and those all-important photographs are the perfect keepsake for looking back on the memories. Whoever you decide to choose for your photographer will most likely have an idea of what they’d like to shoot on the day, but it doesn’t hurt to give them a little guideline too, particularly if you have specific shots in mind to include certain family members, or capture certain moments.

Last year, we were honoured for Stancliffe Hall and its stunning gardens to be the beautiful backdrop behind a styled photoshoot with The Sugared Rose. Working with a hugely talented team of individuals, Matt from Field Photographic was able to capture some incredible images that were used in the June 2018 issue of Wedding Ideas magazine.

We wanted to take this opportunity to share some of those images with those of you who manage to see the feature in the magazine, because, well, they’re just to beautiful not to be shared!

Theme weddings are like Marmite; some people love them, some people hate them. It is such a broad topic that a wedding can range from being ‘vintage’ themed, with classy and glamorous decor, or ‘pastel’ themed, like you saw in Tom & Andrea’s wedding last week, to Disney themed; which is right at the other end of the ‘theme wedding’ scale.

This included growing the flowers in their garden, to the gorgeous letter lights, and even the table linen.
