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.

Austrian Alps Wedding Photography – Zell am See
Winter Adventure Wedding If you need your photographer to snowboard down a mountain with you while you're in all your wedding gear, I'm your girl. This wedding was so much fun. I'm calling it an adventure wedding because a) How many weddings do you get to go to that start in a small Austrian hall (at 10am), then b) transport all the guests to the top of a mountain for lunch and a party, and c) only to all ski/snowboard down for dinner and the after party. It was organised to perfection. It was an adventure wedding. Zell am See Mike and Shula come to this ski resort, Zell am See, a few times a year. The area has plenty of terrain, but doesn ...

I really hate that this much time has passed since I photographed this wedding. It's been hanging over my head, but unfortunately reliable internet is not a luxury afforded to me during my travels.When I met Kim, I felt a sort of kindred connection with her. If only because she was an American girl marrying a British boy, and she was giddy in love. I can sort of relate to that ;-)Their wedding day was filled with love and a huge portion of emotion. The father daughter dance was especially a tear jerker.Cheers to Kim and Christian.Travel Update :: We are currently in France, visiting my inlaws at their home here. We ...

Ocho Rio Jamaica Wedding Photography – Mike & Sara
This wedding was a much welcomed event. After being in China for three months, not photographing any weddings, it was really nice to get back into, and remember why I love doing this. Although it made me miss it in a serious way.Let me just say, it is incredibly humbling when a couple wants me to photograph their wedding so much, that they bring me to the far away place that they're getting married. And yet, a ginormous compliment as well. Travel is in my bones, and if I get the opportunity to be in a new place while photographing what I love, I will always make that a priority, and do anything I can to get there.This lovely affair wa ...
