Steeple Court Manor Wedding

Bride and groom portrait

Dan and Erin had their wedding at Steeple Court Manor which is a lovely privately owned wedding venue in Botley, Hampshire. The weather was perfect and so was the venue.

But the day started with Bridal Prep in Erin's home. It was clear right from the off that the day had been planned in great detail and with love. 

Her dress had a beautiful flower motif...

Dan and Erin's Ceremony and Reception were both held in the permanently erected marquee in the Steeple Court Manor grounds. The marquee itself was decorated beautifully by the venue.

The grounds were gorgeous and the main garden was large enough for a good sized heart-shaped group shot.

It was really nice that the venue allowed confetti to be thrown over their lawn. It made for a great shot.

There were lots of intimate places, perfect for bride and groom portraits and very short distances away too, ideal for a bride in expensive shoes.
