Patrick & Naomi ~ Leicester Countryside Wedding


Berkshire wedding Photographer Benjamin Stuart Photography

I’m always honoured to be chosen by friends to photograph their wedding. It’s affirming in a way, that they understand my work, appreciate it and trust me to take care of their wedding just like I would with any other couple. This is especially the case with Patrick and Naomi because Patrick has worked at the National Wedding Show for a number of years, has a keen eye for detail and knows what he likes.

The wedding was in the Rearsby area, north east of Leicester, and not far from Melton Mowbray (for all you foodie fans, that’s the home of the pork pie). I love that now, as a wedding photographer, I get to explore more of the UK than I ever have before and who knew, it’s beautiful! The scenery was full of rolling hills and valleys, farmland and stunning yellow fields of rapeseed – very quintessentially English. The church service was held in the gorgeous local village church of St John’s in South Croxton and what a beauty it was. Half of our wedding ceremonies are held in old churches and they can be very dark and difficult to photograph. But St John’s was the complete opposite, there seemed to be light streaming in from all angles. Definitely one of our favourites; beautiful, stunning architecture and so much light!

You’ve probably heard it before but just because you’re getting married, doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. Your wedding day should reflect you as a couple and not Pinterest. Weddings are such a fantastic opportunity to put to good use the talents, skills and creativity of your family and friends. A big shout out has to go to Aunt Anna who made one of the most beautiful wedding cakes – such skill and talent! Honestly, if you’re planning a wedding in Leicestershire and you want her to make you the most stunning cake ever, get in contact as I have her number! Family and friends were also responsible for making the wedding favours and decorations, for setting up the reception the night before/morning of the wedding, providing the drinks for the bar, making the wedding video… and much, much more. So much creativity and love in one place – it helped make my job so much easier.
