The 25th November dawned a beautiful day, it was Sam & Andy’s wedding and the sun was shining! I set off deep into the Surrey Hills to Betchworth – the location of the stunning Hartsfield Manor which was to be the days venue…
Bride to be Sam was getting ready with her bridal party in one of the beautiful suits overlooking the gorgeous countryside. Calm and smiling Sam was having the finishing touches made to her hair by Rebecca’s Hair Designs and make up by the lovely ‘Make up by Charlotte‘.
Sam had chosen a stunning colour scheme of royal blue for her lovely bridesmaids who all looked breathtaking! Beautiful flowers were provided by Senses Floral Designer.
For the last-minute touches Sam’s Mother, Father, ‘Man of honour’ Gareth and little son Kai joined the bridal party – so touching to see these special family moments. Sam’s dress was ‘Charlize‘ by Viva Bride
Leaving Sam to have a few minutes of peace before the ceremony I caught up with Andy and the guests eagerly awaiting downstairs. Maxine (Sam’s daughter) was Andy’s ‘Best Lady’.
On the stroke of 2pm Sam made her grand entrance down the gorgeous wooden staircase into the ceremony with her father, ‘man of honour’ Gareth, bridesmaids and Page Boy Kai.
The celebrants conducted a beautiful ceremony which included a lovely reading by Sam’s sister and stunning rings presented by Sam’s daughter Maxine.
Sealed with a kiss Andy & Sam officially became Mr & Mrs Butler and the happy couple and their guests braved the very chilly temperatures outside for some lovely group photos.
While the guests headed back in to warm up with some lovely ‘pimped Prosecco’ we had a little ‘Bride and Groom’ shoot…
Back inside guests were warming up ready for the wedding breakfast with some Polaroid camera fun!
Sam’s ‘Glitz and Glamour’ theme was in full effect at the wedding breakfast, beautiful crystal centre pieces and royal blue sparkly touches really making the room twinkle!
The speeches were hilarious and the lovely little shots rounded these off perfectly!
After the speeches guests headed to the dance floor where some impressive shapes were bust!
It was finally time to cut the stunning cake and Mr & Mrs Butler took to the dance floor for their 1st dance as husband and wife.
I’d like to thank Sam, Andy and their guests for allowing me to capture their big day, I had the most amazing time and hope they treasure these memories for years to come!
