Lillibrooke Manor Wedding

The recent wedding at Lillibrooke Manor near Maidenhead was what a great wedding should be. As a Berkshire wedding photographer I couldn’t have asked for much more. Grace and Sam are just such an amazing couple. We met a few months before in Richmond Park in London where we did their engagement shoot. The atmosphere was fun and relaxed and we got some beautiful photos as a result. Because of that I knew that the wedding day will be just as good, if not better!

The weather was quite typical for an Autumn wedding. Overcast and a bit chilly, but we were lucky enough to get a tiny bit of sunshine just before the sunset.
The Lillibrooke Manor itself is just a great wedding venue. It is grade II listed with medieval manor house and 15 acres of historic barns and gardens. One of the main features is the Great Barn, where the reception took place. It is one of the largest of its type in the south of England. With a grand beamed ceiling and wrought iron chandeliers, it is truly an impressive space.

All the gathered family and friends were just a happy bunch of people, which made the atmosphere joyful and relaxed. The ceremony was beautiful and the food delicious. Speeches were moving and funny. Some favourite moments were when the best man and Sam’s brother did his speech, dressing together with the groom as Batman and Robin. At the end, he even gave Sam a present, which was his entire collection of Pokemon card beautifully framed for future generations to admire!
The after dark sparklers were great, with nice warm glow in the photographs against the dark backdrop of the evening. At the end, I finished shooting a bit later than planned. The atmosphere on the dancefloor was so electric (please check below!) that I just had to stay longer!
