Manor by the Lake on the outskirts of Cheltenham is an amazing venue, with the picturesque setting being coupled with a superb team delivering weddings of a very high standard on every occasion. Little wonder that couples from all over the country choose Manor by the Lake as their wedding venue. Couples from further afield also choose this beautiful Cotswold venue. Recently I have photographed a couple who travelled from Switzerland and later in 2018 a bride is travelling from Australia to tie the knot at Manor by the Lake.
And so it was that Shellie, Jac their friends and families travelled from Leicestershire just after Christmas to get married at Manor by the Lake.
We British do have a minor obsession with the weather and on their big day it really was “snow joke”!! Despite the winter doing its best, all the guests arrived safely and the manor and grounds looked prettier than ever.
Weddings are always a family occasion and Shellie and Jac’s day would not have been complete without Lilly- their loyal and unbelievably well behaved beautiful Border Collie. On such days, it is emotional spending time with those you love, but it also brings into mind the precious memories of those dearly departed. In recognition of those who were surely there in spirit. Shellie and Jac set lanterns floating on the lake. This gave me the opportunity to capture them with their guests beneath the lights hanging from the trees that surround the lake.
A couple of weeks after their wedding all of their pictures were ready and it was without delay that Shellie and Jac returned to Cheltenham to view and collect their images. Needless to say they were delighted.
