29/03/10Wedding Photography at Cowdray Park, Midhurst
Lucy and Shilen, St.Margarets, Warnham, and The Walled Garden, Cowdray Park.
As promised, here’s another spectacular venue from last year that was new to me, The Walled Garden at Cowdray Park. Lucy and Shilen’s day involved two ceremonies, a Christian ceremony at St.Margarets in Warnham and a Hindu ceremony in the Walled garden.
All the pictures show the joys of a Spring wedding on a fine day – blue skies and guests happy to be in the sunshine after the gloom of winter. Lucy and Shilen both looked fabulous in their outfits and the light levels meant I could capture pretty much all of the day without flash – although I have to admit to being really proud of the dancing shots.
Cowdray park is a great location – private and yet spacious in the Walled Garden itself but also with the ruins of Cowdray Castle.
A lot of couples debate whether to ask me to stay into the evening, wondering what they’ll gain – these pictures answer that question, they show not only another phase of the day that it would be a shame to miss but also Lucy and Shilen’s sheer enjoyment of the day and all their friends joining in with them. If you like informal and reportage photography the more relaxed feel of the evening provides wonderful opportunities.
Cowdray park is a great location – private and yet spacious in the Walled Garden itself but also with the ruins of Cowdray Castle immediately next door for any set piece pictures or if the bride and groom want to escape for some time on their own – I really loved it and the marquee in the centre was spectacular.
