Background Information and Highlights:

Our featured bride and groom chose Loseley Park Guildford Surrey for their wedding, or to be 100% accurate the blessing of their wedding as they had a separate civil marriage ceremony some time ago. And being the gluten for punishment our bride also scheduled a third ceremony to take place in her native Malaysia shortly afterwards!

Our couple selected all day coverage from Peter, starting with the latter stages of the girls getting ready and finishing a little while after the first dance. Video of the entire ceremony and speeches was included in addition to the normal stills coverage.

Loseley Park is a hugely impressive and ancient stately home in its own extensive grounds, yet it is very easy to reach being just a few miles south of Guildford Surrey and a short distance from the M3 and M25 motorways. It is very well maintained both inside and outside, and is particularly famous for its gardens. There is plenty of onsite parking.

One major issue that professional photographers and videographers should be aware of is that access to the Great Hall and the Drawing Room (which normally host ceremonies) is not permitted until one hour before the ceremony is scheduled. Again, the nearest parking to the main building is some distance away (except for quick dropoffs) and so this needs to be factored into the timeline if anything more than the bare necessities of equipment are to be put in place. The main building is locked shortly after the ceremony and so equipment should be removed in good time. Early on our couples day Peter did bump into someone from the previous days wedding who had returned to retrieve some "lost" equipment!

The Tithe Barn is also licensed for marriage and civil partnership ceremonies and in addition it is normally the location for receptions, and there are no access considerations for the Barn.

Peter arrived early to shoot some scene setting photos around the lovely grounds at Loseley Park. As with all weddings days - or so it seemed of late - the weather was unpredictable. Just as well for the early start as blue skies were on show in parts before the inevitable rain later in the day. You can get a feel for the scale of Loseley Park from the first photo below:

The Tithe Barn is about 300 yards from the main building and is itself an impressive venue for both ceremonies and receptions. Plenty of guest parking is available adjacent to the Tithe Barn just right of the camera position:

The Great Hall at Loseley Park must be just about as grand as its possible to get. The ambient light in the room though not plentiful is surprisingly good for such an old building:

Our groom waits anxiously for his soon to be better half:

Our celebrant somewhat surprisingly sought to restrict photography during the ceremony even though our couples' event was actually a blessing of their earlier marriage. Oh well - there really is no knowing what the clergy will do! Peter was able to shoot a good selection of photos during the ceremony and to record it in full on video from several unintrusive compact video camera viewpoints. A string quartet played during the ceremony and the reception and Peter recorded this separately to add to the video. Here we see the familiar exchange of rings:

Loseley Park has a rather nice Drawing Room next to the Great Hall which is available for a limited number of setpiece group photos after the ceremony. The Drawing Room can also host smaller wedding ceremonies:

Confetti is not allowed at Loseley Park but bubbles are fine:

No sooner had the ceremony ended than heavy rain started. Fortunately it was showery rather than prolonged and we did manage to shoot a good selection of posed photos inbetween the wetness:

We still had to watch out for those treacherous puddles though!

Little people were not vanquished from our bride and grooms' day so some lovely moments were begging to be shot:

The father of the bride did of course have to perform his ceremonial duties! Peter was able to video the speeches in full:

The speeches are always a great opportunity for atmospheric and character photographs:

The cake cutting also looked great in the gorgeous surroundings of the Tithe Barn:

Its always nice to finish with a suitable after dark photo to end the wedding album:
