The Stables Wedding

Amanda & Colin’s day

I first met Amanda and Colin at the I Do wedding fayre at Doncaster Racecourse. I spoke to them for a while about their wedding plans, their venue and colour scheme. We established I was free on their date, they took some information from me and continued to look around the fayre.

Around ten minutes later I looked down the aisle and there was Amanda, fighting her way through the crowd and heading straight for me, closely followed by Colin. I have never seen anyone move with as much determination at a wedding fayre before! They told me they didn't need to think any longer, and booked me as their wedding photographer.

On the morning of the wedding Amanda went back to her parents’ house to get ready. She had her two girls helping with her makeup, dress, and keeping the pink champagne flowing! The bridesmaids and bridal party all left in the Campervan they'd hired, leaving me with Amanda and her Dad. Although she'd already left home, walking out of her parent's house for the last time as an unmarried woman was an emotional moment.

The rest of the day was held at The Stables, High Melton in Doncaster. The wedding ceremony took place in a private section of the building, with the staff directing everyone to their seats as they arrived. They made sure everyone was seated before the Bridal party even got out of the cars so nobody saw Amanda early!

After the ceremony we moved onto the group photographs and drinks. Then I whisked Amanda and Colin away for their couples shoot. We’d already gone through most of the poses in the pre wedding shoot, so they knew exactly what they wanted from their couple shots. The weather was so lovely it was a pleasure to walk through the grounds and use every bit of them for photographs.

The Stables was a perfect venue for their wedding. They had invited a few children, and The Stables suited them wonderfully. There’s a beautiful courtyard area where a lot of the children played, and it was completely enclosed. The adults could enjoy themselves without worrying about little feet finding their way to the main road, there was no way out!

My favourite part of the day was the cake. It was a wedding gift, handmade by one of the guests and had travelled the length of the country to be there. The 5 pearls on the side represented the 5 people that were coming together as part of this marriage, which was a lovely touch.
