Stanley House Hotel Wedding Photography

It was Matts first time photographing a wedding at the lovely Stanley House Hotel. Alice & Danny’s day was a beautiful day filled with great little details and in a stunning setting including a dreamy sunset for some romantic Bride & groom portraits.

Alice Says;

Our wedding date was 4 August 2018, we really wanted a summer wedding and was praying for nice weather and we were really lucky on the day as it couldn’t have been more perfect

We got married at Stanley House Hotel in Mellor. It’s a beautiful venue both inside and out and just a short drive from where we live so not too far for our guests to travel.

We went for was Alice in Wonderland theme –  for the obvious reason that it matches my name but the more I looked into it the more I absolutely loved all the quirky things you could do with it. I was really kee for it not to be Disney but I loved all the little trinkets, tea pots, cups and saucers and little keys which all made it really magical.

The Wedding colour scheme was a baby blue which I thought looked beautiful and really summery and also went really well with the Alice in Wonderland theme.

I wore a W by Watters dress from Foxglove brides. It was the first shop I went in and the first dress I tried on. As soon as I put it on I knew it was the one, I tried on quite a few more after that but nothing matched up!

Danny and his groomsmen wore a Ted Baker suit from Moss Bros. It was a navy blue colour which looked lovely next to the pale blue bridesmaids dresses. Danny’s suit was a bit different as he had an ivory waistcoat and tie as apposed to the blue of the groomsmen.

The bridesmaids dresses were from Foxglove Brides too. I just had two bridesmaids and they both wore matching sleeveless dresses that pulled in at the waist and came up to the neck. 

Matt was my photographer from Bethany Lloyd-Clarke photography, he was amazing on the day really blended into the background catching all the natural moments that mean the most! I can’t thank him enough for the beautiful photos he captured and would certainly recommend him!

I carried a bouquet of white roses which were styled as though they’d been picked from a garden. They were stunning and really natural looking. Flowers by Morgan in Garstang provided them and did a fabulous job!

My bridesmaids both had a smaller version and a mini version for my flower girl. The men had white roses as their flower too with little trinkets such as a mushroom or a key to tie into the Alice theme. In the wedding reception I had a huge flower moon circle which was stunning. It really made the room and looked spectacular. Again my idea was that this fit into the Alice theme as it acted as the rabbit hole. I had managed to get hold of lots of little trinkets and tea cups and my florist was able to make these into my table centres adding some fresh gypsophila. Each table was a little bit different and looked beautiful. 

 I had little ‘drink me’ favours with a small shot of cinnamon schnapps inside. My cake was made by Iced in Garstang and was decorated in an Alice in Wonderland design with a little door and a pocketwatch.  After the ceremony, the moon circle was moved to frame the cake which again made it look extra special.

I had a videographer, Charlotte White who was fantastic, she was a joy on the day and made us two absolutely amazing videos that will really help us cherise the day forever.

Creative cover hire supplied my drapes, chavari chairs and LED dancefloor all of which added to make the room look stunning as soon as we walked in. We also used add a little sparkle who brought us some giant Mr and Mrs Finch lights which were really special as they were personalised. They looked amazing! 

Certainly we would recommend the venue  – the team were fantastic at looking after us from start to finish, we can’t thank them enough.

The whole wedding day was just magical, I really couldn’t pick one moment. When you grow up people say it’s the best day of your life and it really was. The day was everything I’ve ever dreamt of.
