Stanbrook Abbey Wedding Photography | Chloe + Steve


I’d been itching to shoot at this beaut of a venue nestled in Worcestershire so was thrilled when Chloe and Steve booked me as their Stanbrook Abbey wedding photographer for their autumnal wedding last year. After being together for nearly 7 years, Steve pulled out all the stops with his Coronation Street proposal. It’s a guilty pleasure of the couple and after contacting producers, Steve made up a false story that he’d won a private tour of the set in a competition. Unbeknown to Chloe that it was all a setup, Steve got down on one knee outside the Rover’s Return – the answer was yes of course!

Over to Chloe….

“We were blown away when we visited Stanbrook Abbey when we were looking at posible venues. We thought that it was a stunning venue with quirky features. The Callow Hall where the ceremony took place just blew us away and I could just envisage walking down the aisle – we knew pretty much from there on that we wanted to get married there.

We decided on neutral colours as I’m not a huge fan of bright and bold. I always knew that my bridesmaids and most of the decor would be ivory. The overall vision for the day was classic, romantic and pretty with a timeless dress from  The Bridal Room.

Our wedding was one of the best days of our lives. I had the best morning with my bridesmaids, mum, hairdresser and makeup artist – I was truely made to feel a million dollars by Victoria & Helena. Obviously, marrying Steve was a special moment – although, I have no recollection of parts of the ceremony as I was so nervous and was trying not to mess the vows up! I’d say one of our favourite highlights of the day though was having all our friends and family in one place and they got to share our special day – we all lead such busy lives, live all over the UK (and Hong Kong and Australia) and don’t see as much of each other as we would like so it was brilliant that they came to share it with us. My biggest surprise of the day was that my Mum didn’t cry!

Everyone probably gives this advice and it’s hard to do as you have so much going on in your head but. . . .enjoy as much as you can on the day. It passes so quickly and you can’t do a re-run the following day”
