a fairground engagement shoot in Stamford, Lincolnshire | uk wedding blog

facebook-profile-picture By Phoebe

A very much needed visit to Stamford on the blog today. Natalie and Steve are such a gorgeous couple and I had a huge smile on my face whilst I was narrowing down the images (which I have done a poor job of as they were all lovely). There are details of their upcoming wedding below, obviously some details will remain a secret but Natalie is having the legendary Miss Pickering as her florist so we know it is going to be beautiful and that Natalie has impeccable taste.

Venue – 

The ceremony will take place at the gorgeous Normanton Church on Rutland Water. It is no longer an actual Church, but a museum. In the 1970s, a village was flooded to make way for the manmade lake. However, the church was saved following public outcry – and now sits on a peninsular on the lake edge. Almost as though floating on the water.

For the reception, we will then be moving to a farm over in Hambleton – again by the water – in which we will erect Kata’s from Elite Tents (http://www.elitetents.co.uk/) for a very relaxed reception filled with personal touches, music, good food and dancing.

Wedding photographer

The wonderful Binky Nixon!

Kissing Gate Video are also our videographers.


Miss Pickering – who else!

Bride’s dress /shoes

That would be telling! However, I did find the beauties at The Stamford Bridal Rooms. The ladies there are fantastic – especially Aimee – who made me feel very much at ease. Searching for a wedding dress is actually quite a stressful experience!

Bride’s hair accessories/veil

Gillian Million – a find at a National Wedding show. Gorgeously hand crafted!

Bride’s hair /makeup

Still working on these – watch this space!


These are being made by one of the girls mothers, who is ridiculously talented.

Groom’s outfit/accessories/shoes

No idea – he is keeping this one a secret i’m afraid!


Wonderful Holly at Mimosa bakery. (who has featured many a time on the blog!)


A very talented and creative friend is designing these for us.

Décor/wedding details

I don’t want to say too much on this one – but it is very much a DIY affair. Steve is a carpenter, so we are making many lovely creations from wood. We are both really passionate about the personal touches and are working really hard to bring this together. We want a very relaxed, bohemian, rustic vibe.


Jeeves Caterers – based in Maxey are providing the food.

Honeymoon Destination

Hong Kong – followed by Bali.
