Lillibrooke Brooke Manor -Winter Wedding

by Dec 16, 2019

VPP-1

Hayleigh and Reggie got married in church ceremony in London. Hayleigh chose the the All Saints church in West Ham where her parents tied the knott, not far from where she grew up. The ring bearer was the couple’s adorable fur-baby, ‘Blue’. His eyes fixed on the couple as they exchanged their vows – so well behaved, but completely stealing the show.

Hayleigh and Reggie met 7 years ago at a Halloween party and got engaged a couple of years ago. The couple agreed on having the reception in a rusting barn and shortlisted two options. They immediately fell in love with the first one they’ve seen – Lillibrooke Manor!

A wedding bus took the guests from the church to Lillibrooke Manor in Berkshire. The couple and I stayed back to to get some photos, making most of the last available daylight. Blue was on his best behaviour and proved to be quite the poser!

The bus was en-route to Lillibrooke Manor, but there was one small issue. The Groom’s keys was on the bus while he was still at the church with his Bride – stranded! It took about half an hour – and a couple of frantic phone calls – but his brother retrieved the keys and rescued them. Everyone made it to the venue in good time and the couple had the reception they both wanted.

The barn with its Christmas tree, gardland lights and candles created a warm and cosy space. It was the perfect choice for a winter wedding.

Here are the highlights from this rustic barn wedding reception.
