Botleys is rich in history, with the earliest known reference to the house going back as far as 1319. In 1995 a major fire tragically destroyed many of the fabric and features of Botleys Mansion. English Heritage donated money to the restoration work during which a number of specialist companies with experience in Grade II refurbishment were drafted in for the £6.5million project. Companies who were involved in the Windsor Castle restoration were used for restoration of the wood, the ceilings on the Piano Nobile floor and much of the gold leaf decoration. An 18th Century building historian was contracted to advise on aspects of the decor such as the chandeliers and the wall-coverings, which were all hand-painted with period designs unique to the building you see now.
Botleys Mansion Weddings are my favourites. It really is a place that I love to shoot. I adore the frontage and the exquisite decor, it is second to none. The simple, plain but incredibly elegant interior is beautiful and a stunning area for your wedding photographs. I’m fortunate to have shot at Botleys several times and have included a few below of a recent wedding.
