It was a lovely day for capturing Lillibrooke Manor wedding photos for Daniella and Jean-Paul. The day was slightly overcast to start with. The sun came in and out throughout the day. It was nice and warm, a very pleasant day. Dani and JP had organised the whole day at the venue. I arrived to capture the end of the bride and bridesmaids getting ready. The mood was fun and relaxed although I could sense some nerves creeping in as the ceremony time got nearer. I always like the excitement that builds up around a wedding day. One of the good things about getting ready at the venue, is that it removes the worry about traffic and travelling to the ceremony. In this case, it was a short walk from the cottage room to the barn where the ceremony took place. JP was in good spirits, greeting guests and looking smart. There were not too many signs of being nervous. The ceremony was fairly short and sweet and it included some readings. After the ceremony, the newly married couple and their guests were able to enjoy drinks in the courtyard and garden. I enjoy the drinks reception as it is a great time for documentary coverage of the wedding day.
The wedding breakfast followed the drinks reception. The Barn at Lillibrooke Manor is big and spacious and it looked great with all the decorations and lights. We were then able to take a few portraits outside in the late afternoon low light. We kept it short and relaxed. Speeches followed shortly after . They were a good length of time (not too long not too short) funny and emotional at times. A perfect combination in my books! After the speeches there was some downtime for the guests to stretch their legs before the evening dancing and party. In addition to the first dance, the bride and groom had also planned a father and daughter. The guests joined in and it looked like they were having a great time by the time I left, not too long after the first dance.
Here is a short selection from the final images from their wedding day. I really hope that you enjoy them and that it gives you a good flavour for Lillibrooke manor wedding photos.
