Andrew Gleed Photography
Our Vintage Photo Wall is a fun and alternative photo booth service. As you can see in the image, there are plenty of small vintage inspired photos in old-fashioned frames on the photo wall. You can upgrade to have these photos personalised. The false wooden wall has vintage wallpaper on the top half, complete with dado rail and ‘wood look’ wallpaper underneath. You can have couples in one large frame or a combination of different shots using all three frames - ideal for guest groups, with or without props, sitting in front too.
The creativity of our pro photographer, combined with some imagination from guests, results in great photos e.g. we have had someone wearing a Minnie Mouse head, an expectant Mum showing her bump through our frame (holding a love heart on a stick), a Bride looking through the large frame and holding her bouquet through the small one.
We bring plenty of props (feather boas, hats such as a Henley Boater, Trilby, beaded Beret, Charleston style feathers, silly wigs and glasses), along with moustaches, lips on sticks and signs tohold up. “I’m with Stupid” is a favourite!
Please contact us for package options for your wedding, corporate event, anniversary or private party.

LG Fine Art Wedding Photographers
We are at the forefront of fine art wedding photography. We are preferred photographers at several first class wedding venues including Stoke Park Country House and Cliveden House Hotel. We have been on some amazing journeys with our brides and grooms; every wedding has been unique from ceremonies at St Paul’s Cathedral and The Ritz to intimate quirky venues.
For much of the wedding, we will blend into the background, capturing natural, unposed moments documenting the day as it unfolds. We also love to spend a little time with just the two of you, creating something really special.
For us it isn’t just about being there on the day, we are an all female team that is there throughout the whole journey. Jules is dedicated to looking after you during the planning process and Lisa and Lucy are two of our talented photographers.
“On the big day, the service delivered was amazing ... and the photos – ours were absolutely stunning! Every moment was perfectly captured, they were truly breathtaking.” - Paul and Nick.
“We couldn’t be happier with our photography from LG Fine Art Weddings! We had tears in our eyes when we got the photos and couldn’t believe just how wonderful they were.... possibly the nicest, friendliest and most professional supplier we used for our wedding. We would recommend them to anyone looking for 1st class photography.” - Vicky Mote.
Stoke Park Club is one of my favourite wedding venues - not just because I got married here myself! I know Stoke Park inside out, in all weathers, and all seasons. I have been a recommended photographer here for more than ten years.
Weddings allow me to create beautiful, spirited and uplifting images full of love and laughter. I photograph using natural light wherever possible so there is little or no intrusion from flash, and I do not interrupt your day. It’s a wedding day not a photo shoot, and I believe the most intimate, honest and enjoyable photographs are taken quietly and spontaneously.
I dedicate around ten minutes to family photos and these are done with the minimum of fuss. My portraits of the Bride and Groom are natural and free flowing, with no stilted or uncomfortable posing. My favourite pictures are of you being yourselves, having the time of your lives on your wedding day!
With over twelve years experience and over 450 weddings to my name I am a very safe pair of hands, and at each and every wedding I work tirelessly to ensure that the photographs are a timeless reminder of how much you enjoyed your day at Stoke Park.
