The Walled Garden, Cowdray wedding of Priya and Richard
The Walled Garden at the Cowdray Park Estate West Sussex is an extremely beautiful place for an outdoor wedding, which is exactly what Priya and Richard wanted and received . Its been a while since we photographed Frankie and Alex’s wedding at the Walled garden (as seen in “Love My Dress”), we have been itching to go back there, it’s quite simply one of the best wedding venues in the country.
Priya looked stunning in her Sari and she was picked up by a bright red vintage Royal Enfield motorbike and arrived side saddle at the wedding, how cool is that!
Richard and Priya were so much fun to be around, their adoring looks and the delight they had in each other’s company was evident. They got married underneath a rose arch, safe to say this was so romantic and many a tears was shed, by the bride and groom, many of the guests and us!
After the ceremony it was drinks and fun on the lawn whilst we snook off for some photographs. We really love the shot at the back of the garden with Richard and Priya seated on a wooden seat with the lines of a natural path leading your eye into the photo and framed by one of the fruit trees along this avenue.
Tech alert– for those who have been following our Facebook Page
you will have seen our new lens being tested, it’s a 500mm mirror lens, it contains no glass just mirrors. This was our first wedding we were able to use this due to the open space and light quality at the Walled Garden. See if you can spot the images that we used this lens on, it gives a great bokeh (out of focus area) with lots of little doughnut shapes. The cake shot I’m guessing is a worlds first with a mirror lens.
There were many beautiful backdrops for photographs of the newlyweds and the guests. The children had fun running along the lawns between the flowers and water features and the whole day had a relaxed and summery vibe. Hope you love the photos a special mention too for the lovingly created cake depicting some of the countries the couple have worked in as aid workers. We wish them all the luck for a fantastic life together, you make a perfect couple.
