“You’ve done an incredible job and you were brilliant on the day. You made us feel totally at ease which is really saying something as I can be quite awkward with posed photos (as Briony has experienced several times already on our honeymoon so far)…We love all the pictures; we will spend the next month or so agonising over which ones to print. Thank you so much for all your hard work; you’ve been professional, thoughtful, and helpful throughout. We will be sure to recommend you to everyone we know who is getting married.”
Summer Loseley Park Wedding
Oh I do love a Loseley Park wedding!
Every time I get an enquiry for this stunning countryside venue I say a little prayer in the hope the couple choose me. I’m incredibly fortunate to have worked here several times a year since I started over 10 years ago, and it hasn’t lost its magic. It also seems to attract the loveliest couples so that’s always a bonus. Briony & Ciaran were no exception and when I met them to chat through their day I knew it was going to be fab!
They had a beautiful Church wedding…
They chose a church ceremony at the stunning St Nicholas Church in Peper Harrow. This has got to be THE cutest most exquisite church I have photographed. It wasn’t the first time and it was a joy to be back, albeit on the hottest day of the Summer. Usually churches are cooler buildings but thanks to Ciaran and Briony’s popularity it was rather packed with guests! Briony wore an absolutely incredible dress from Madi Lane Bridal, it honestly took my breath away when her mother helped her into it. The stunning Victoria Harper headpiece just finished off the look beautifully and made gorgeous Briony shine even moreso.
Once the ceremony was over, and after a long and brilliant confetti run, we all made our way to Loseley to continue the celebrations. Despite the intense heat, the guests enjoyed being in the White garden for their reception, the flowers by Edge of the Florist complimented Loseley’s stunning grounds perfectly.
I would like to say the speeches were great fun, but I don’t think I’ve witnessed quite such a roasting as poor Ciaran by his hilarious (and of course loving) brother John – I am shooting his wedding to his lovely fiancee Sarah next year so I shall look forward to hearing Ciaran get his own ! :) We lucked out with the incredibly August golden hour and had a few quiet moments where the couple practised what was to be a spectacular first dance! Dirty Dancing eat your heart out.
The night for me ended after a brilliant Ceilidh band had made sure the guests were warmed up and even more sweaty, and some photos that will be favourites of mine for life. Here are some previews from their day, if you’re planning a Summer Loseley Park wedding, do get in touch!
