Crazy Bear Wedding Photography | Eleanor and Anthony

Today was the turn of the lovely Eleanor and Anthony to get married at the Crazy Bear in Stadhampton. E & A are a terrific couple – so happy and relaxed and helpful it was a genuine pleasure to be there at the wedding and to photograph the story of their day. The wedding venue was The Crazy Bear in Stadhampton, a great choice for a cosy winter wedding. The whole place, inside and out, is a mish mash of styles and design influences which all seem to work together. It’s an interesting and unique venue and it was great fun to photograph there.

Here are some images that caught my eye, if you were at the wedding and would like to know when Eleanor and Anthony’s complete gallery is uploaded, CLICK HERE and I will send you an email.

Some scene-setting detail shots at the Crazy Bear.



Eleanor and Anthony opted for one big long single table in the Moroccan Glasshouse for the wedding meal – looks fantastic, eh?


An unusual wedding bouquet for the bride and some beautiful shoes.



A few favourite photographs from the bride and bridesmaids preparations.

Often when I talk to brides, they remember being a bridesmaid when they were small – it’s always nice to see the little ones enjoying the pampering and the experience of the wedding day.


Meanwhile over in the Jet Black suite Anthony and the boys get ready.

The preparations are an interesting time of day – it goes really quickly of course which is one of the reasons I enjoy being around and photographing what’s happening. In years to come it’s going to be great to look back on and remember how you felt on the morning of the wedding.

I love this image – a quiet few minutes before the wedding ceremony.

The Oak Room was beautifully decorated for the wedding ceremony.

The gardens at the Crazy Bear are great – as night falls the colours and the lights begin to show.

The wedding speeches are great to photograph, here’s a few from the evening that caught my eye.


Thanks again Anthony and Eleanor!

    Simon I must say that I truly enjoyed myself looking at your work. The images you posted are great. My favorite is the groom getting ready and the tv image. Good stuff!

    Eleanor and Anthony dropped me this kind note after the wedding

    “I just wanted to say thank you so much for the amazing service we have received from you. After photographing my sisters wedding we knew exactly where to go when we got engaged. We didnt even consider any other photographers. We are extremely impressed with your non intrusive style of photography and love all of the pictures. We have had so many compliments from family and friends, my mother would have been distraught if we had used anybody else!!! Thanks also for all the ‘wedding’ advice on he day, you doubled up as a wedding planner!”
