Harlaxton Manor Wedding Silhouette

A stylish Harlaxton Manor wedding with Lianne & Ric

Situated in the Vale of Belvoir, on the outskirts of Grantham in Lincolnshire, this opulent venue marks my first experience with a Harlaxton Manor wedding, and hopefully not the last! The architectural and interior design, both inside and out, is nothing short of spectacular. With expansive rooms, grand chandeliers and breathtaking ceiling designs, Harlaxton Manor exudes a timeless charm.

Lianne & Ric’s wedding was truly unforgettable, radiating style and beauty throughout. Their celebration felt like a scene lifted from the pages of a magazine, capturing the essence of elegance and creating lasting memories at this remarkable venue.

Congratulations to Mrs & Mrs Whitehead!

Information & advice from the newly-weds


Any stories about the proposal?:

Covid put a bit of a delay in wedding planning but ultimately everything went to plan. Ric proposed on a completely random Saturday in our lounge when I got back from a morning of usual weekend tasks. I had no idea and really didn’t expect it and was completely shocked! I know a lot of brides expect it but I honestly didn’t think it was on his mind. Stunned doesn’t begin to cover it.


Reasons for choosing your venue?

We’ve been to a lot of friend and family weddings and wanted somewhere no one we knew had got married at before. We did a Google search and stumbled upon Harlaxton Manor. If we’re honest, the second we started up the driveway, there was no way we were getting married anywhere else, so a Harlaxton Manor wedding it was!


Blue and gold. No particular reason! We wonder if we’d been subconscious influenced by the decor in the venue. We have two cats who are our babies and we adore so used cat breeds for table names and had a cat bride and groom on the cake that were modelled on our boys!

Any special thoughts/memories from the day?

So many! It was great to see everyone there just for us. I loved our first dance. Seeing everyone having such a good time was amazing. No one tells you beforehand but there is no day or occasion like it.


Any advice for couples planning a wedding?

Everyone told us to make sure we took 10 mins away for just us. We did but we did it in a spot where we could see everyone and just look at our party. Make sure you do it. Be present. Leave your phone in your room for the day. Don’t look at the news the day before, on the day or after.

We picked Matt to photograph our wedding at Harlaxton manor in March 2022 after a google search and a look through his portfolio. From day one, he made everything so easy. From booking, to deposit’s, to the day itself. Matt kept in touch with us and answered any questions we had before the day.

On the day itself, Matt and his colleague Christian were an absolute pleasure to have around! It was like having two extra mates with us on our wedding day! As the bride, please don’t underestimate how important this is (groom too!). The photographers are with you during intimate moments of your day. It’s so important whomever you choose, you’re 100% comfortable with.

It’s a personal thing but we loved Matt’s style of photography. We did minimal posed photo’s, the vast majority we did was candid which meant Matt and Christian captured some amazing natural moments and we didn’t spend hours of day posing and being dragged away from our guests. We were able to just enjoy our wedding. We did a handful of posed photos which maybe took us away for 15 minutes. The photos themselves are incredible. We got the gallery back last week and I’ve been through them so many times. They’re just beautiful.

Please make sure you look through Matt’s portfolio. I’d like to thank Matt and Christian for their invaluable contribution too our day. I can’t wait to see the album!
