For this styled shoot, I got together with some wonderful fellow wedding suppliers to create some dark and moody Standon Hall wedding photography. The theme of the day was Queen of Hearts and we went with bold makeup and dark details on our two brides.
Queen of Hearts Styled Shoot
We wanted to demonstrate a bit of a different theme for this gorgeous venue. We went with black and red dresses to start with as well as more traditional ivory later on. The dark red florals and the black cake looked amazing with the huge fireplace at Standon Hall. Our brides had bold red makeup and gothic bronze jewelry to match the theme. The embroidered leather jackets were a lovely feature as was the teapot centerpiece for the table.
Standon Hall Wedding Venue
Standon Hall is an enchanting Grade II listed, early 20th-century mansion situated in the heart of the Staffordshire countryside. This was my first visit to this spectacular new venue. They are still putting the finishing touches on some of the renovations but you can already see how amazing weddings will be here. The gardens are coming together really nicely and I can imagine how gorgeous it will all be with full flower beds in the summer.
The hall has a number of large reception rooms and as an exclusive use venue, you and your guests will be immersed in the luxury of a stately home. Standon Hall has original period features blended with a modern interior. The bar area totally takes your breath away with its jungle mural and living wall. The staircase with huge leaded windows offers a classic elegant space. With all the options it would suit a vintage-styled wedding as well as something more sleek and modern. Well worth a look if you’re venue shopping.
