Kat and Alex chose one of the most beautiful wedding venues in Surrey: Botleys Mansion. Botleys Mansion is located in the Surrey Hills less than 30min from London. Surrounded by stunning landscape the magnificent building is one to impress your guests.
Kat and Alex hired me to photograph and film their wedding. They went for my ‘big’ package which includes myself plus a second shooter for the whole day. We shoot the day together giving the photos and the film a similar look and feel. Also, this way we avoid standing in each other’s shots.
Wedding Photography and Videography
The day started full of anticipation with the bride and groom getting ready separately with their friends. Botleys Mansion is a wedding venue that offers fantastic rooms upstairs, large enough to accommodate even the largest party. The light is perfect there – much better than in some hotel rooms! The ceremony took place in the Green Room on the ground floor at Botleys Mansion. As the weather was absolutely fantastic we did all of the wedding group photos outside.
The perfect wedding venue
Botleys Mansion is a wedding venue surrounded by generous fields and it was a no-brainer to shoot most of the couple’s photos within this lush environment before moving back inside for the wedding reception. The Atrium at Botleys Mansion is a reception room unlike any other wedding venue in Surrey. A central staircase leads into a bright and airy room ideal for a wedding breakfast and the following speeches.
For the first dance, the events team at Botleys Mansion opened up the sides of the Atrium revealing a sparking dancefloor. Mini Burgers (of course with a vegetarian option available!) offered a well-deserved snack in between dancing. Another highlight of this wedding was the 2nd wedding dress, which was a surprise even to the groom.
As always, I stayed until 11:30 pm as I love nighttime wedding photography. It was pitch black when we went into the fields again late at night.
I personally very much enjoy photographing and filming weddings at wedding venues as stunning as Botleys Mansion – and there are countless beautiful wedding venues in Surrey!.
