"My sister gets married in 2 years time and she has already booked RS Brown for her wedding after only seeing our 'preview' images because they were just incredible."
Simply put, we LOVE Lillibrooke Manor and we are fortunate to shoot many weddings there every year! Keri first spotted Lillibrooke Manor on an episode of Don’t tell the Bride (before you had to have a crazy theme to be on the show!) Keri + Tom weren’t even engaged at the time but she knew there and then she wanted her wedding day there.
Lillibrooke Manor is a lovely barn setting packed full of original features with plenty of scope to add your own personal touch. Keri + Tom had done a great job, the barn looked beautiful. We were especially a big fan of the draping fairy lights hanging across the roof!
Keri + Tom had planned a ceremony in the Cloister Garden but the weather had other plans. The heavens may have opened but it certainly didn’t spoil anything at all, it just meant a very quick turnaround of seating 20 minutes before the start of the ceremony! The ceremony was full of love, emotional, laughter and err.. rumbles of thunder! The ceremony in fact had to pause for a brief period as the thunder was that loud - A first for us and not something we have experienced again since. Thats the beauty of weddings, they are all so very different, even if it wasn't quite intended that way!
The drinks reception took place in the Engine Room where canapés and fizz was enjoyed by all the guests. We took the formal shots in the barn and then jumped over to the ceremony room to grab some portraits of Keri + Tom (at this point we were planning/hoping to go outside - more on that shortly..!) before they sat down for their wedding breakfast.
After the speeches had finished the time had come to cut the cake and rock the first dance! We then headed out to dodge some puddles and make some some beautiful images - Keri + Tom were such great fun and armed with a couple of lovely domed clear umbrellas really embraced the rain!
If you are looking for wedding photography at Lillibrooke Manor we would absolutely love to hear from you!
