Wedding at the Walled Garden at Cowdray

couples photography wedding

I met Meg and Matt at a pub, about a year before their wedding at the Walled Garden at Cowdray. We chatted over a pint and they were so easy going. During our meeting we ended up talking and discussing about 100 other things apart from their wedding. Following our initial meetup, a couple months later, I shot their engagement session here in the forest. During their shoot, I asked them how they felt about jumping a fence and venturing into a field to get potentially a great shot, and they didn’t even hesitate.

There is not enough I can say about these two. As with all wedding, you really get to know a couple when you celebrate their wedding day with them and hear the stories told by their friends and family. This is a shining example of an amazing and committed couple, and I feel so fortunate to have photographed their day for them. Meg is outgoing and has the most radiant smile and amazing stye. Matt is quieter, but super funny and personable when you start chatting to him. Together they created this lovely day with so many personal details and a literary vain running through it all. Meg made the button holes for the guys from a music book, because Matt loves music. Matt gifted his groomsmen Avengers cuff links.

The photos

The entire day, from start to finish was beautiful. Meg was getting ready with her girlfriends and bridesman, and was completely relaxed. I don’t think anything could have stressed her out.

For their couple photos we nearly got rained out. But even while it was pouring Meg and Matt were committed to getting some great shots in the ruins. We ventured out with umbrellas that weren’t needed in the end as the clouds broke, and the sun came through. A bit of rain+sunshine made for some awesome shots.

Here’s their gorgeous wedding at the Walled garden at Cowdray.

I'm so excited to share these with someone!  You know how it gets when you look at something for a long time, your feelings change about it.  You go from loving it, to hating it, to coming around and adoring it again.  You essentially get lost in it.  That's what happens while doing a wedding.  There is so much to look at and appreciate, but at some point in the middle of the whole process you start to feel like you can't see it clearly.  You can't decide what you like about it.  And then, it's over, and finished and you lay it out to look at the whole thing.  You take a step back and suddenly the cloud lifts and you can see it again, clear a ...

Starting Again
With a fresh look, and a new life! Well, not so much a new life, but a lot is changing at the moment. Firstly, we are no longer living in China. We found out in February that we are expecting a little babe in late October, so we made some plans to get ourselves a bit more settled. Although we loved our life in China and our Xiamen family that live there, we didn't see ourselves having a baby there. We've always wanted to be closer to family, and after almost 9 years together we decided it's time to make that transition and move to the UK. This also means starting again with my business. It all feels a bit daunting. An unfamiliar place, wit ...

Southampton Engagement Photography :: Karl and Nicole
I always try my best, no matter what, to get a couple in front of my camera before their wedding day. Not everyone is used to having a camera pointing at them, and it's often really hard to not go into "cheese" mode when it is. Getting a couple in front of the camera before their wedding day, helps me to coach them a bit and get used to my style of photography. That way, on their big day, they can focus on each other, and that's when the magic happens. However, these two had no problem in front of my camera. It seemed like they had already done it all before. We got to sneak away from the party for a bit to catch that afternoon light that ...
