Stanley hall wedding

Syrie & Dave

Stanley Hall wedding photographer

Where do I begin with this wedding…I had the pleasure off meeting Syrie and Dave back in April 2021 to capture their legal ceremony at the Garden Room Southwark Registry Office. Due to you know who (covid), the couple were left with no choice but to split their wedding day into 2 parts, they were keen to still get married on the original day, and I was so pleased they decided to go ahead. We all needed some cheering up during the pandemic, and witnessing their marriage lifted everyone’s spirits during the pandemic, and I really enjoyed capturing the memories for them. 

Fast forward to September and let’s pretend there was never a break between the events….Syrie and Dave have married and are now arriving at The Stanley Hall wedding venue in Norwood to find all their guests dressed up, and ready to party! I don’t know if you remember, but this was the month the UK was hit with the fuel shortage disaster, and of course it was hit on the day of the reception! But of course no fuel shortage will stop this wedding, and guests flooded into the venue from Wales and the North, great effort from everyone! Party is on!! 

Stanley Hall: The venue was a new one to me…I can’t say I have heard of it before the wedding! Walking into the venue that morning I was surprised how big and spacious the hall was, covered in quirky Art decor features, and a stunning mezzanine overlooking the dining area. Syrie and Dave wanted this day to be all about catching up and spending time with their family and friends, they haven’t seen some of their favourite humans in over a year, and it was the perfect opportunity to bring people together for one evening and forget about the world crisis for a few hours. There was so much love and emotion in the air that evening, and I hope you manage to see/feel it in their wedding photos below. 

If you are planning your own Wedding at the Stanley Hall, or perhaps somewhere else, then I would love to hear from you!
