Elmore Court Wedding Photography

Elmore court is probably one of my fave places to shoot. Not only is it one of the loveliest settings for a Cotswold wedding. The story behind how Anselm and Sarah have made it what it is is truly inspiring. 


Kirsty and Nathan’ had one of the most intimate weddings I’ve shot this year. Obviously covid was a contributor to there decision to scale back. However it didn’t change the sentiment behind the day. 


The day started off onsite with bridal preparation in the cottage, once makeup was sorted Kirsty and her bridal party moved over to the main house for the finishing touches in the master suite, including getting in to her wedding dressing on. 


While this was happening Nathan arrived to add the finishing touches to their decor. 


The day was windy, I mean really windy. I kept thinking to myself. Are guest going to come out if family shots?


The ceremony began, The Hall always looks good at Elmore Court… to be fair you can’t make it look horrible. It litterally as everything from a mahogany floors to drapes and a piano that just make it a perfect and timeless setting for nuptials. 


I cracked up during the ceremony as Kirsty and Nathan loved up the camera while they were signing the register. Making funny faces and laughing. 


The day moved forward to drinks and nibbles, while guests were reminiscing about the couple and checking out kirsty amazing wedding ring. 


The rain started to pour so for family shots I decided rather than taking everyone out in the rain to get soaked through. We would shoot them indoors. Vanity Fair style shots that worked an absolute treat. 


It’s alway a priority I ask my couples to come outside at some point so when the rain dried up… I asked Kirsty if she would like to come outside. As I said it was windy and spent probably the best part of 5 minutes chasing my umbrella around. But for the moments we were out in the cold the images that I shot of this beautiful pair were absolutely great. We headed inside for some shots and film footage of them as a couple before moving across to the Gillyflower where the speeches began.


Nathan’s speech was super emotional and the guest cheered as he cracked jokes jokes and awed at his beautiful words about Kirsty and the accident he has that she so selfishly help him through. I love the Gillyflower at Elmore Court - it literally is the best place to have a wedding breakfast. Feasting tables were the order of seating and this made it perfect for the speeches to be filmed. 


The cake cutting weren’t with out a hitch, a little wobble on the cake it seemed, but to be honest I thought it was meant to be like that… It added character to what was a tasty piece of wedding cake baking.


Nathan and Kirsty dance was lovely… no special moves, no break out to a fox trot… just the two of them in the moment. You can see from their film how beautiful it was.


Then it was outside for sparklers. I stuck around to get some party footage after as I always try to do. 


These two absolutely smashed their wedding. I loved it. It was classy, fun and lighthearted - a perfect balance. 


Below are some images from their day and of course their wedding film. 

Review


"Wow! We had both our wedding photos and video from Stu and we cannot sing his praises enough. He was really easy to get along with and didn’t feel at all like an intrusion on our day at all. You can tell he’s passionate about what he does and just manages to see the perfect shot whether that’s posed or just capturing everyone throughout day. We had quite a bit of rain on our day and Stu found the perfect place indoors to have our family photos which have turned out amazing. He also wasn’t afraid of getting us out in the wind and rain (with our go ahead!) to get some amazing couple shots too. We are so happy with all of our photos and video and feel that our day was captured perfectly. Thank you so much Stu - we would 100% recommend!"
