Rockley Manor Summer Wedding // Wiltshire Wedding Photographer


Alice & Nick were married on a sun-soaked summer’s day at Rockley Manor House in Marlborough, Wiltshire. We first met when they were guests at Alex & Emily’s wedding back in 2014. It’s always so cool to photograph people who I first noticed as guests at another wedding. Because of the process of looking at these people down the lens and then seeing their faces while editing, I have this already-comfortable feeling of knowing them which helps us ease into things.

Alice & Nick had motion picture along with their photography so from the time of getting ready in the morning, they each had two of us covering them: one photographer and one videographer. Even still, we just blend in with the furniture and covered their day like (butter)flies on the wall.

There was a series of unfortunate events over at Team Groom, one of which being that Nick forgot to pack a razor so the guys pitched in which made for a pretty comical series of photos.

Their ceremony was held at a church in Aldbourne not too far from the venue. The best part of the ceremony for me was all the precious looks Alice gave her dad up until the point where he put her hand in Nick’s and sat down. Those two clearly have a pretty incredible bond and I loved watching them throughout the day.

Rockley Manor is a private home (people literally live there) but wedding parties can hire the whole grounds so team Alice & Nick spent the whole weekend there. It’s just so incredibly impeccable. A truly flawless house & grounds with a barn (or two) and all the comforts of home.
