Claire and Paul were married at Botleys mansion in Surrey, a beautiful relatively new venue and it was our first time there. So, naturally, we were very excited and the venue offers so many possibilities for photographs inside and out we were spoilt for choice.

We started with Claire and her bridesmaids as they got ready (very calmly) in the fantastic bridal suite and met Paul and his groomsmen just before the ceremony downstairs.

Paul is an accomplished pianist and the grand piano in the entrance hall was just waiting to be played by him. So he played for all the guests on arrival. The make of the piano being a Steiner suited him too as it was his surname and soon to be Claire's!

The rain threatened after the ceremony and for May it was a bit chilly, but we all braved it and did some group photos outside and incorporated the magnificent front stone staircase into a large group shot with confetti.

The wedding breakfast was held in the stunning conservatory and we stayed for some photos of the first dance before slipping away and leaving the party in full swing.
