Crazy Bear Stadhampton Wedding Photography – Aimee and James
Crazy Bear Stadhampton Wedding Photography – Aimee and James: I’ve always known James as a larger-than-life character, easily able to control groups of kids at sports camps, after hours school sports clubs and, finally, two of my son’s Birthday parties; and I have to say with complete admiration that he is a truly a top guy.
So being booked to photograph his wedding to the beautiful Aimee at The Crazy Bear in Stadhampton was a complete honour and after a fun pre-wedding shoot (complete with Elton John impressions at a piano that he couldn’t play) the big day finally arrived. I was finally here with Aimee shooting bride prep, whilst Chris (my photography buddy and top-tech wizard, camera and flash guru) was with James. Of course, special mention goes to baby Lexi, who was a superstar all day.
Shooting at a Crazy Bear venue is not like shooting at any other venue. It has quirky rooms with velvet on the walls and ceilings, bathrooms at the end of the beds, it has very controlled lighting, but most of all it has the character of no other venue in the land. To photograph a wedding you have to stop and check all the things that make a ‘standard wedding photography day’ (if ever there was one) and re-think how to bring the best out of that particular venue. To be honest, the weird and wonderful is just my cup of tea – bring it on!
Throughout the day we saw a Liam Gallagher look-a-like, a registrar that was so full of character he should be on the stage in the West End, a memorable speech from James that was filled with both humour and admiration for his new wife, and finally the evening which consisted of a band that had dance routines and lines that just made the final stretch of the day a very fitting end.

I would like to wish the happy couple a massive congratulations and say a huge thank you for allowing us to be a part of your wedding day at The Crazy Bear in Stadhampton.
Aimee and James were kind enough to leave the following words.
‘An excellent photographer with such an eye for detail. As someone who does not enjoy having my photo taken, Marcus was able to make it so much fun that it wasn’t an issue. I would highly recommend Marcus Charter Photography!! Thank you for capturing our special day so beautifully and making it unforgettable x’ – Aimee
‘Top drawer!! Superb!! Photographed our wedding on Saturday and did an excellent job. Lots of fun and a great guy. Thanks again mate. Highly highly highly recommended’ – James
