Stephanie & Paul’s Traditional English Wedding in Surrey
We absolutely adore being a Surrey wedding photographer because of couples like Stephanie and Paul. These two amazing humans first met in 2007 when they were both traveling in Bangkok. Seven years later, on 26th November 2014, groom Paul took Stephanie for a spontaneous dinner at The Shard. It wasn’t until they were about to leave that Stephanie realized Paul had arranged a romantic overnight stay at the premier London venue. As soon as they stepped into the room, Paul dropped to one knee and proposed.
Stephanie and Paul wanted a traditional English wedding, a grand venue in a secluded setting within its own grounds. So Botleys Mansion, a Palladian country house in Surrey was a perfect choice and large enough to house all 110 guests from their bridal party. It was also an opportunity for us to be their Surrey wedding photographer, which we absolutely adored!
One of Stephanie’s favorite wedding day moments was getting ready in the morning with the girls, including her 9 bridesmaids! The brides elegant white wedding dress was from Allure Bridals and her shoes by designer Jimmy Choo.
The bride has several favorite photographic moments; a portrait of the couple walking over the bridge and down the stairs, a candid moment of Paul fixing his cuff, her and her bridesmaid before the ceremony and a beautiful photo of the bride with her dad.
There’s a great black and white shot of Paul and his seven groomsmen dressed in their Ralph Lauren suits, celebrating just after the wedding ceremony. Below, a sample of some of our Surrey wedding photographer portfolio from Stephanie and Paul’s special day!
