One all my all time favourite Melbourne wedding venues, Butleigh Wootton was the gorgeous backdrop for the wedding of Lauren and Andrew!
Butleigh Wootton, located on Glenferrie Road in Hawthorn is just one of the most amazing hidden gems. You would never know it’s there, but as soon as you walk into Butleigh Wooton you know you have entered somewhere special. The styling, the decor, the architecture, everything about Butleigh Wooton will just blow you away.
So, first stop was at the boys house in Eltham. We had a ball, laughing, taken photos of the boys getting ready! After a couple of beers the boys got well into it and we’re posing and strutting their stuff like seasoned professionals! After an hour of snapping away it was time to head off to see the girls.
Next stop, Butleigh Wootton! The girls were getting ready in the Butleigh Wooton bridal suite which is absolutely amazing! So much space to shoot, stunning light coming through the super high windows, amazing bed styling and ornate mirror, it was like a photographers dream 🙂
The groom was massively surprised when the bridal music started, but instead of being the song they chose, it was actually the Emperors March (Star Wars Song) and next thing he knew it was Darth Vadar walking down the aisle at Butleigh Wooton instead of his bride!! He loved it and got laughs all round 🙂 The rest of the ceremony went off, it was beautiful and full of emotion, such a gorgeous service!
Then it was time for my favourite part of the day, location photo shoot and with a location like Butleigh Wootton I couldn’t go wrong. There was stunning scenery in every direction of this wedding venue. We started out the front with some photo of their vintage car and then into the garden with the Bridal Party. After that it was time to go inside and utilise that amazing staircase that Butleigh Wootton is famous for. We absolutely smashed it and got some ridiculously awesome shots, I was so happy!
The reception went off and everyone was having a fantastic time. The Butleigh Wootton staff went above and beyond like always and the night was just perfect!
