Wedding at Cowdray Ruins and The Walled Garden

Feature wedding

The Couple

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.

Cowdray Ruins

I feel so lucky to get couples that really invest in their photos and care about the locations. These Henry VIII ruins were part of the Cowdray Estate and Meg and Matt got permission to have us take their photos there. Architecture, crumbling walls, texture juxtaposed with a beautiful couple on their wedding day.

The Walled Garden

This venue was so well run. The staff were friendly and professional, and the Walled Garden is a gorgeous setting for a wedding day celebration.

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.

Autumn New Forest Engagement Photography
You wouldn't know it by looking at these photos, but this shoot nearly got rained out. The day before is when we'd originally scheduled it, and it poured rain from dawn to dusk. We quickly scheduled it for the following day and managed to capture that sweet autumnal glow.I love setting up for engagement shoots. Scouting unique locations is my specialty, and in this area there is no shortage of magnificent backdrops. A broken wall, or a glimmering tree line can completely transform a photograph from your usual portrait into vibrant scene.Meg and Matt were good sports about trekking through forest and fields as well as hopping over a fe ...

Southampton Wedding Photographer – Lauren and Jim
Trust.From start to finish, Lauren and Jim trusted me, which is completely invaluable. They didn't worry about what I was doing or making sure I got the right shot. They relaxed and let me take care it. There is nothing more I can ask for from couples because given that trust I can create what I'm there to do.A beautiful couple that I'm a bit sad to say goodbye to. When I'm with a couple from the start and I get to know them, photograph their Engagement Session and then the Big Day, it gets hard to finish up their photos and finally blog their wedding. I'm just a bit sentimental that way I guess.I wish them all the best.Se ...
