Step into the enchanting world of a Highley Manor wedding celebration, where, amid the timeless beauty of Balcombe, West Sussex, a wonderful wedding celebration was captured by me and my team, Joe (our second shooter) and Andy, who offers the wedding videography service. Explore the captivating details of Michaela and Chris’ special day, marked by the elegance of a Highley Manor Wedding and the unique charm of their wedding, despite a hint of drizzle.
A Highley Manor Wedding Indoor Ceremony
Discover the allure of an indoor ceremony at Highley Manor, where Michaela & Chris, with the support of a dutiful best man, and her mum & brother helping her get ready and her brother walking her down the aisle, created lasting memories in an intimate setting.
The getting ready room is where we began, but once we were ready to put the wedding dress on, we went upstairs to the bridal suite for some stunning wedding photographs in an elegant location.

Floral Elegance for Highley Manor Weddings
Highley Manor’s picturesque setting was enhanced by floral arrangements from GoBotanica flowers, echoing the colour palette. This visual symphony of whites, peaches, champagnes, burnt oranges, and subtle burgundy accents graced the wooden arch in the garden and the ceremony table, and the manor’s staircase creating an understated elegance.
Entertainment in Highley Manor’s Outdoor Haven
One element of wedding guest entertainment that I haven’t seen before in my many years of wedding photography was a mini golf course that transformed Highley Manor’s Wedding garden into a lively playground. From a carefully curated Spotify playlist for the reception to a DJ from JPC Events for the dancing later, the celebration echoed with joy throughout the day. The Mini-golf was provided by Bintems Crazy Golf, and there were other outdoor games such as giant Jenga, connect 4, and cornhole to provide endless fun for wedding guests in between the summer showers.
Sweet Indulgences and Delightful Surprises at a Highley Manor Wedding
Highley Manor’s charm extended to sweet indulgences and thoughtful surprises. Wedding Favours included small bottles of alcohol, colouring books for kids and a separate table featuring sweets and paper bags. The reception room was adorned in the floral arrangements and the dessert table, curated by Cielo Bakery, showcased two splendid cakes, one vegan and one traditional, adorned with florals, along with 40 cupcakes in various flavours, ensuring a delightful treat for every guest.
Their dedication and artistry seamlessly integrated into the fabric of this Highley Manor wedding, making it an unforgettable celebration for Michaela & Chris.
A Sparkler Finale
The weather gave us a bit of respite after the speeches, giving us a perfect opportunity to pop outside with all of the guests and blow a lot of bubbles in place of confetti, and the evening kicked off with a first dance and a sparkler sendoff just before we left the wedding venue. Amid the grandeur of Highley Manor, Michaela and Chris crafted a wedding that seamlessly blended elegance, entertainment, and heartfelt moments.
