Loseley Park is one of those venues that you know will be outstanding. It ticks all the boxes for a heavenly wedding. Loseley Park is set in acres of stunning Surrey countryside. Built in the reign of Elizabeth I, Loseley Park stands in ancient Surrey Parkland close to the North Downs yet within reach of London.
Still the home of the More-Molyneux family, it is remarkably unchanged since 1562. There is intricate panelling in the Great Hall was once in Henry VIII’s Nonsuch Palace. The Tithe Barn with its ancient oak beams leading to the elegant and restful walled garden. Loseley Park is one of England’s friendliest historic homes.
I met Kerri and Oli one cold wet night in Richmond Upon Thames to discuss their wedding photography. Kerri has a huge personality and knew exactly what she wanted. Thrilled to have been chosen to photograph their special day, which was to be my first at Loseley Park.
Kerri & Oli booked a pre wedding photo shoot with me. This is a great for getting to know my couples, and gives them an opportunity to feel comfortable in front of the camera. Our pre wedding photo shoot was at Fulham Palace. Full of cheeky moments, we captured some lovely moments of them both.
It always surprises me how quickly weddings come round. One minute you are sitting with a couple planning their big day – then woosh – a year later the day is here!
Kerri was getting ready at the fabulous Hurtwood Inn in Peaslake. A teeny tiny village smack bang in the Surrey Hills and just perfect for bridal preparation.
It poured. It rained constantly. Nothing would dampen anyones spirits, in fact in hardly came up in conversation. Kerri looked absolutely stunning in one of the most gorgeous gowns I have seen.
The ceremony in the Great Hall was something out of a movie. With all its textures, colours and wall panelling, it really is a photographers dream.
The entire day was incredible. The speeches were hilarious and the ceilidh dancing was amazing. Here are a few lovely words from Mr and Mrs Miller….
“Thank you so much for your hard work and being so amazing! Everyone commented on how great you were. You could not have captured the day better if you tried, we have been laughing and smiling at the photos all morning”
Kerri admits that she can pull a funny face, and there are a few images that I love with Kerri’s great expressions. Mr & Mrs Miller I wish you all the very best for your future together – you totally rock! xx
