Ben & Stacey | Stubton Hall Winter Wedding Photos | Newark Wedding Photographer | Ben Chapman Photos

Ben & Stacey are a case of meant to be; they met when they began their basic training at RAF Halton.

They were both following in their parents footsteps; both Ben's and Stacey's parents met in the military too.


Meant to be!


Ben popped the question on the side of Mount Snowdon after completing the National Three Peaks Challenge with Stacey. What a way to do it!

Now he's got to live up to this kind of effort for everything!


I remember when Ben 1st contacted me about wedding photos. Stubton Hall, Newark was mentioned and I was excited to photograph at such a grande looking venue.


And what a place it is!

Even in the cold, wind and rain of winter, Stubton Hall is a beautiful place to be.


Covid put a stop to their original plans in 2020 but good things come to those who wait and I'm sure you'll agree that this day really was a good thing.


It was the morning of the wedding and I just had to use the large window in the centre of the bedroom for a dress photo.

Black & white all the way.


Stacey's dress was from The Wedding Room, Nottingham.

Whilst make up was by Kokoshka Makeup by Estera Sutton.

Just look at the happiness on Stacey's face reading a card from Ben.

Sometimes I just see a shot and take the opportunity for something different.

And one of my favourite parts of the day if there's time; a window lit portrait.


Beautiful!

Flowers were by Jacaranda Flowers, Lincoln.


Stacey's parents; Mick & Debbie waited outside the bedroom for a 1st look.

What a great moment to witness and document.

The ceremony room was bright and airy even in winter.

Lovely!

I do like a military wedding; I'm always impressed by the uniforms.

Now it was windy and wet outside so after 15 minutes of photos we headed back inside to warm up.

The speeches were full of all the emotions just like they should be.

Everyone then braved the elements so we could do a sparkler exit.
