Manor By The Lake Wedding

Manor by the Lake is such a wonderful wedding venue – both from a couple perspective but also for photography and film.

The house is steeped in Victorian history, blending classic elegance with contemporary luxury. The gorgeous interiors provide a sophisticated setting for the reception, with panelled walls, secret passages and a brilliant rock bar. The venue’s dedicated events team is well-versed in accommodating the unique requirements of Indian fusion weddings, ensuring a seamless and culturally sensitive celebration.

We were there in April, photographing and filming Manveer and Stefania’s gorgeous Indian/Italian fusion wedding.

With this being our first Manor by the Lake wedding for photography and videography, we weren’t sure what to expect – but it truly is perfect. There are so many different rooms and grounds – and even though you’re two minutes away from a dual carriageway, you’d never know. You truly feel like you could be anywhere!

Stefania’s Italian heritage meant a civil ceremony during the day – outside under the beautiful pavilion, with the sun shining down – before changing in the evening to Indian dress to celebrate Manveer’s Indian roots. They’re also holding a Catholic ceremony in Italy later in the year.

We love an outfit change at a wedding, especially when the evening outfits are so full of colour like Stefania’s beautiful coral wedding dress that she had tailor made.

We were made to feel so welcome by Manveer, Stefania, and all their guests. The speeches were so heartfelt; Manveer even serenaded us all by singing Ed Sheeran in Italian as a surprise to Stefania! Absolutely amazing.

Why Have A Manor By The Lake Wedding?

One of the key reasons Manor by the Lake works as a wedding venue is its commitment to customisation. The venue’s flexible spaces can be tailored to reflect your individual style and cultural preferences, allowing for the incorporation of vibrant colors, intricate décor, and traditional elements that define Indian weddings. The experienced staff work closely with you to curate a personalised experience, from menu selection to thematic decorations.

The grounds at Manor by the Lake are like something out of a fairy tale. Picture this: seven acres of lush, manicured gardens surrounding a Victorian mansion, complete with a dreamy lake. It’s basically a photographer’s or videographer’s paradise. The variety of backdrops is unreal – from the elegant rose gardens to the charming woodlands, there’s a perfect spot for every kind of wedding photo. The lake itself adds an extra touch of magic, especially when the swans decide to make an appearance.

A Manor by the Lake wedding marries classic charm with all the modern comforts you’d want and ensures your wedding isn’t just an event; it’s the opening chapter to your beautiful love story.

We’re booked to go back in 2023 and 2024 – and we’re so excited for another opportunity to capture more memories at this gorgeous venue.
