Craig & Nicola’s Wedding at Botleys Mansion in Surrey was a beautiful and elegant wedding to photograph. This was my first trip to Botleys Mansion and the place was stunning! It combined the grandeur of the manor house for the ceremony but then the modern glass part for the reception (which was a photographers dream with so much natural light!) I’d enjoyed getting to know Craig and Nicola. Craig works in football and Nicola owns her own wedding decor business so lots of thought had gone into the colour scheme, the candles in the ceremony room and the decor in the reception room. Nicola had designed beautiful glass signs and the seating plan was a work of art! So the venue looked amazing, the decor looked amazing and the couple looked amazing too! It wasn’t just about the aesthetics though, it was also about the moments. There was a really sweet moment after Craig and Nicola were pronounced Husband and Wife where Nicola turned to her Parents who were beaming and giving her the thumbs up! I loved it during the Best Man speech where Craig and Nicola stood at the end and embraced too. I loved being part of this wedding and I hope you love my favourites from the day.
Nicola emailed me to say “We were so excited when the postman delivered our USB, we cracked open a bottle of champagne we had been saving & started off with the slideshow Olly had recommended to start with – which was a great touch with the music! Got us excited to see the rest. We are really pleased with the photos and finding it hard to choose our favourites which seem to change daily! Thanks again. The new Mr & Mrs Smith x”
