One of our favourite venues to photograph weddings at is Lillibrooke Manor, Maidenhead. If you’ve not heard of the venue or haven’t had the opportunity to make an appointment to visit it, then make yourself available and come along to their wedding fair on Sunday 10th February 11-3pm. As one of their preferred suppliers we would be delighted to chat to you and show you lots of galleries of weddings at Lillibrooke Manor.
So what has Lillibrooke Manor got to offer? As a unique Grade 11 listed venue, the estate can be exclusively hired. Set in beautiful grounds with various different buildings/barns, the venue offers couples lots of flexibility when planning their ceremony and reception.
Indoor and outdoor weddings at Lillibrooke manor are always a pleasure to photograph. If you have always fancied an outside wedding, Lillibrooke is able to offer this in their ‘cloister garden’.
But if you would rather ‘tie the knot’ indoors then located in the quadrangle of the pretty cloistered garden is the ‘Small Barn’ accommodating upto 120 guests.
Guests can spill out after the ceremony into the cloister garden and enjoy a drinks reception. If you are planning a bigger wedding however, The Great Barn (holds up to 220 people, 170 seated) offers an amazing space to hold a civil ceremony.
The Great Barn is where guests can gather later in the day to enjoy their wedding breakfast.
With a garden attached to the side of the Great Barn, couples have the flexibility of offering their guests a hog roast or a bbq or simply an area for children to run off their energy! It has been known at some weddings to have a bouncy castle and hay bale seating out there too!
As photographers, Lillibrooke Manor offers endless beautiful photographic opportunities. On arriving at the venue, the long gravel drive lends itself to natural candid shots of the wedding party.
Group shots outside the Manor House provide an alternative back-drop too. This is always a good place to throw confetti!
Or alternatively the ‘New Barn’ is a great back drop for quirky group shots. This is very much our style – a trend we seem to be leading!
And for the ‘Wow’ shots of the couples themselves, the Manor House garden and the surrounding open paddocks and fields either side of the main drive provide us at LG Fine Art Weddings and the newly married couples, a prefect setting for a wedding. http://www.lgfineartweddings.com/packages/
