Manor By The Lake Summer Wedding

Each time I return to Manor By The Lake in Cheltenham I always find somewhere new to shoot. Nestled in between some very interesting buildings (a supermarket and an industrial estate), Manor By The Lake is a large regal building with huge grounds, a lake and surrounded by trees. It’s like you’ve wondered too far into the woodlands and ended up on some Duchesses country retreat. You would have no idea the venue is slap bang in the heart of Cheltenham.

This year I returned to Manor By The Lake to shoot a friends wedding, someone who I’ve known for as long as I’ve been living in this part of the country for, about 9 years. I’ve watched her grow closer together with Matthew, attending cosy house music shows for a couple of years together with them. When they both asked me to shoot their wedding I was honoured – knowing Selina I knew that the decorations, music and theme would be fantastical. With the longest wedding veil I’ve ever seen, coupled with traditional grey suits for the gents, this was more of a classic wedding than a bohemian one. The night was finished by a live jazz band led by Kim Cypher on saxophone, giving upbeat swing renditions of some of our favourite songs. 

I felt truly at home with this wedding, being around friends from back in my University days made for an easy shoot and post edit. I sat with Selina and Matthew when they opened the wedding pictures for the first time, and I’m so honoured they’ve let me use the images to populate a 2018 wedding album to show other couples in the future.
