Whenever a bride and groom tell me they are getting married at Botleys Mansion, I always feel thrilled for them. I’ve been lucky to photograph weddings there a few times now and it is a truly stunning venue. This Palladian mansion has exquisite rooms, beautiful grounds and dates from the mid- to late-1760s.

I was delighted to meet Laura and Ben, the bride and groom, and when they told me they’d chosen Botleys Mansion for the ceremony I knew exactly what to expect. The room the ceremony took place in certainly didn’t disappoint – with pastel-painted walls and ceilings and gloriously-large windows that flooded light into the room, it was the perfect venue for a spot of romance!

Both Laura and Ben got ready at Botleys with the rest of the bridal party. The staff at Botleys are so organised and welcoming – nothing is ever too much trouble for them. Laura looked stunning in her wedding dress, designed by Emma Hunt, and Jenna Kim took care of her make-up for her on the day. Everyone seemed very excited – if there were many nerves present I certainly wasn’t aware of them!

The ceremony had some memorable touches involved too. The guests were entertained by harpist David Williams, while friend Cerian Holland sang during the ceremony itself. I was particularly thrilled to take some wonderfully emotive photographs as, one by one, the bridal party made their way down the aisle to where Ben was waiting. Finally, I captured the look on Laura’s face as she appeared and Ben could finally see here. The moment to get married had arrived!

Afterwards we were able to go outside, where the weather had thankfully been kind. The delightful grounds played the perfect host to the wedding party as everyone congratulated the newly married couple. Afterwards the party moved on to another part of Botleys Mansion, where tables had been laid for the wedding breakfast to take place. The light and airy room was the perfect location for the simple white-laid tables and chairs, completed by the stunning chandelier hanging in the centre of the room.

Finally there was the celebration itself, where everyone could finally let their hair down. The party was ably supported by the band, Grand Central, and no one wasted any time getting onto the dance floor. All in all it had been a memorable and wonderful ceremony, a beautiful wedding breakfast and a superbly enjoyable evening, and the whole day went without a hitch. Laura and Ben enjoyed their first dance together as a married couple, and then everyone got in on the action and joined them.
