couple exciting their wedding ceremony on the way to their botleys mansion wedding

It was a pleasure to be invited again to photograph another Botleys Mansion wedding, as this was the second time I’d been there.

This exclusive-use mansion house in the Surrey countryside, allows you to have a unique wedding ceremony. If you’re looking for a special place for your wedding, put this on your list to check out!!

The fact that it rained for most of the day never mattered, as they have lovely and spacious indoor rooms for guests to mingle freely.

Charles and Tanya live in Gibraltar and had to arrange their wedding from abroad. Fortunately, they gave themselves plenty of time and managed everything beautifully and efficiently. I was also able to offer a few suggestions from my list of recommended suppliers.

A special big thanks to two suppliers in particular, who helped make the day a success: Wedding Entertainer – Paul Martyn and Videographers Tiago and Sandra Caldeira.

From the images below, you’ll be forgiven for thinking this was a winter wedding, as you’ll see Father Christmas makes two appearances. One after the ceremony at the church. Then, again during their Botleys Mansion wedding reception. But this wedding was in in the middle of June!!

So why Father Christmas in June?? Simply put, Tanya loves everything to do with Christmas. So Charles decided to surprise her by booking her favourite person to appear during the day. You’ll clearly see how shocked she was, especially during the evening reception.

Another surprise for everyone was the 3 Waiters. They look like waiters. They act like waiters. Until they start singing and get everyone singing and joining in the fun. Brilliant way to get the fun going during a wedding!

What Is a Documentary Wedding Photographer?

This is an often asked question. In simple terms it means being an observer and recorder of your wedding, with little interference. If you’re familiar with Star Trek, think of it in terms of The Temporal Prime Directive: To visit, to watch, not to interfer and to bring back a record.
