Stanbrook Abbey
Wedding Photography

by Rob & Sarah

We first photographed our first wedding at Stanbrook in 2017 and found it to be an inspiring and beautiful wedding venue.  We have returned several times and are now one of Stanbrook Abbey’s recommended wedding photographers.

Stanbrook Abbey Wedding Photographers

We’re Rob  & Sarah,  husband-and-wife photographers based in Worcestershire.   Our wedding photography is a blend of  natural, unstaged moments and gorgeous couple portraits, all captured with beautiful light, colour and life.

We don’t stage-manage your day, keep you away from your guests for too long or do endless numbers of group photos.  We’re all about capturing the real essence of your wedding with passion , style and empathy.

We offer the choice of one photographer or two and have been photographing weddings big, small and in-between since 2007.

The venue features the stunning Callow Great Hall, St Anne’s Hall, The Thompson Dining Room, the large Garden Pavilion all or which are available to host wedding parties and all have their own character. Stanbrook Abbey also features the Brides Manor – a renovated manor house connected to the main building and also the Groom’s Room.
