Loseley Park Wedding Photography
Minutes from my home in Guildford, Loseley Park has long been one of Surrey’s premier wedding venues, and it’s easy to see why. Steeped in a history stretching back over more than 500 years, privately owned Loseley Park is tailor-made to make for a very memorable wedding day indeed.
Loseley Park, A Perfect Wedding Venue In The Surrey Landscape
Whether you choose to make the most of the Elizabethan Manor House, the 17th Century Tithe Barn, or the recent addition of the Bride’s Room, where the bridal party are able to get ready on site, Loseley Park is an adaptable and stunning backdrop to any wedding. And the Walled Garden has a magical quality for portraits and a summer drinks reception.
5 Reasons To Get Married At Loseley Park
If you’ve just begun the process of planning for your wedding then, first of all congratulations, but secondly, do please take a moment to read my five reasons to chose Loseley Park as your venue (and do of course take a peak at some of my favourite photos from the amazing Surrey wedding venue) It’s a wonderful place to photograph.
1 . Beautiful Historic Surroundings
Built in the reign of Elizabeth I, Loseley Park stands in ancient Parkland and is one of Surrey’s best known wedding venues. Still the home of the More-Molyneux family, it is remarkably unchanged since 1562 when Sir William More laid the first stones, and remains, as he intended, a place of calm, grace and subtle beauty.
From the house itself, where the intricate panelling in the Great Hall was once in Henry VIII’s Nonsuch Palace; to the Tithe Barn with its ancient oak beams; to the elegant and restful walled garden, Loseley Park in Guildford is sought after by so many couples, and has even been used as a location for films such as Sense and Sensibility, and more recently has featured in the Netflix series The Crown, and in The Favourite.
2 . A Magical Walled Garden
Your wedding day can be seen as a journey, and your venue can play a big part in setting the mood for those different parts of the day. The walled garden at Loseley Park is an incredible place to get lost in, literally and metaphorically! In summer it acts as the perfect setting for your drinks reception and in early evening the perfect spot for a relaxed portrait session and a bit of quality time together.
The walled garden is somewhere you’ll want to revisit time and time again during your married life. Excuse me for a moment if I get a bit soppy, but you could even see the garden as a metaphor for your own marriage. Strong, protective walls, allowing beauty and life giving plants to grow within it (you get the idea!)
3 . A Barn Just Like The Ones On Pinterest!
The 17th Century Tithe Barn really does have the wow factor. Whether you choose it as the location for your ceremony or wedding breakfast, the warm tones in the wood beams and natural light make it a barn worthy of a thousand likes on Pinterest!
As a venue for your wedding breakfast the barn is conveniently divided into two areas, making the transition to an evening party venue seamless, and without any of the “table shuffling” that is common at other smaller wedding venues. There’s even an attractive chill out area and bar where guests can relax. Ideal for catching up with your evening guests or setting up a photo booth.
4 . Excellent Carering
Catering for one hundred plus people on a wedding day must be quite a challenge, and believe me, some caterers don’t manage it, but Caper & Berry on the other hand, exclusive caterers at Loseley Park, are super human! They manage to deliver restaurant quality food on time and always with a smile.
They will even use their menu as a starting point, should you have any ideas or themes of your own that you’d like to see in the food. Take a look at their own website HERE. I’m sure the team would love to hear from you. Good food is not what brings people to your wedding, but it is often what brings people together, and with ten year experience Caper & Berry are the experts.
5 . A Fabulous Photographer Minutes Away!
Yes, you guessed it! Reason 5 is me! I grew up in Surrey and moved to Guildford in 2006. I’m just a few minutes from Loseley Park and honestly couldn’t be luckier to be so close to this amazing venue. I’e enjoyed many walks past the house and craft fairs in the grounds. I even have a vague memory of visiting Loseley on school trip and sampling the ice cream!
Whilst it locality shouldn’t be the overriding consideration when choosing your photographer, I believe that one of the most important signs is a willingness on the part of the photographer to meet with you, get to know you, and understand the choices you’ve made about your wedding day. This is easiest to do at your venue, and I’d be delighted to meet you at Loseley.
I’m an award winning wedding photographer based in Guildford, with over ten years experience of shooting weddings. I shoot in a mostly documentary style, which means a little time for portraits and group photos, and lots of time for natural, candid storytelling “moment-driven” photos of you and your loved ones together.
