Botleys Mansion Wedding Venue

Y&YW behind-the-scenes: Botleys Mansion Photo Shoot

Escape to an enchanting wonderland of glittering metallics and rosy hues for our Golden Moments fashion and receptions shoot by Chanelle Segerius Bruce, filmed by The Dream Catchers and as seen in the July/August 2012 issue.

When it comes to designing your wedding day, the options are endless. There are literally hundreds of colour schemes and combinations, as well as dozens of décor, fashion and entertainment ideas. While having lots to choose from is great, it can feel overwhelming.


Here at Y&YW HQ, we feel pretty lucky; working in the wonderful world of weddings we get to experiment with lots of styles on our shoots. From shoots in country houses to quirky warehouses, we’ve seen it all and tasted the cake too.

The reason we put so much into our shoots is to help inspire you. We check out the latest trends and catch up with industry insiders to make sure we’re giving you the very best bridal inspiration.

We don’t do it alone, though. From wedding dress designers to wedding décor specialists and cake makers, we enlist the help of the very best in the business when it comes to providing the most up-to-date and trend-led wedspiration.

To give you a real insight into how it all works behind the scenes and get you feeling ready and excited for your own big day, we thought we’d share this footage from a Botleys Mansion photo shoot.

There are plenty of fashion and décor inspiration shots, some fun and silliness and, of course, some wise words from our chosen suppliers. With their help and knowledge of what works and what doesn’t, you can pull together the day of your dreams.

So, grab a cuppa, sit back, relax and let us show you how we do weddings here at You & Your Wedding.
