Francesca and Alex’s Beautiful Vintage Wedding at the Walled Garden Cowdray

Francesca and Alex first met us at a vintage wedding fair in London as I remember. When Francesca mentioned her venue, the Walled Garden at Cowdray it sounded glorious. As a photographer and keen garden and flower addict I was very keen to shoot their wedding. We arrived at the venue which was being adorned by beautiful natural flowers including peonies, stocks and roses and looked gorgeous. We then went through into to the walled garden, and it took my breath away. It looked absolutely stunning! The roses were all out as were masses and masses of other summer flowers. Paths were lined with lavender and the pools reflected back the hot sun. This was going to be an amazing venue for the couple and the guests.
We headed over to the cottages on the estate and met up with Francesca and her bridesmaids and her best man. Frankie already looked stunning with her beautifully styled 50’s inspired hair and bright red lipstick. When she came out in her amazing tea dress and fab shoes, well I think there was a slight tear in everyone’s eye, she looked so beautiful. We then made the short journey back to the Walled Garden met up with Alex who looked very dapper in his vintage inspired suit.
The ceremony was conducted under a floral arch and afterwards we headed out to get some photos in the grounds and also in the gardens.
There was an interesting ruin which we used as a backdrop, and when we saw a cricket game off to the side, naturally we had to get that in too as we felt it would provide extra interest. It is a sporty area, as Cowdray is the venue for International Polo matches. Having been a horse owner I was keen to get a peek over the wall, and Tim managed to get a shot of some of the Polo ponies thundering past for posterity.
The food was really good too. We all ate pork that was spit roasted that day within the grounds and was delicious!
As the evening wore on, the light became softer and we headed off to the bridge over the stream nearby for some very dreamy and rustic looking shots.
What an amazing wedding, we send our warmest congratulations to Francesca and Alex for a happy life together

    These look unbelievable! Everyone commented on how creative and hard-working you both were on the day. Not only did you take the standard group photos that we asked for, you also took the shots we would never have thought of. It was also lovely just to have you around!
