Loseley Park Wedding Photography
I thoroughly enjoyed being Georgina and Jorge’s Loseley Park wedding photographer. It was a day packed full of laughter, and they were blessed with perfect weather for their summer wedding day.
I started with the girls who got ready at the charming Great Tangley Manor where there was a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Georgina looked incredible in her wedding dress by Mirror Mirror complimented perfectly by her The Gorgeous Flower Company bouquet.
Jorge and boys looked smart in their Moss suits although poor Jorge was made to sweat a little as the bridal party was a mere 25 minutes late for the ceremony at Compton Church! It didn’t matter, the wedding was soon underway and two of the happiest newlyweds emerged as husband and wife ready to celebrate at Loseley Park.
The drinks reception in the Walled Garden was a stunning setting. I really enjoyed capturing friends and family enjoying themselves, lots were cooling themselves with fans as it was so hot! Taking the Bride and Groom off for some photographs around the colourful gardens was a nice chance for them to take a little break and reflect on the day so far. I love capturing the real connection between couples and it’s important to me that this is genuine, unposed and natural.
After drinks, we all headed over the 17th Century Tithe Barn for the speeches, wedding breakfast and party! There were also garden games, a tasty evening food truck, and sparklers which all kept guests entertained. Top band Havana Beat belted out the tunes all night long. Check out the day below and if you are looking for a Loseley Park wedding photographer drop me a message as I’d love to hear your plans!

Loseley Park History
Loseley Park is a beautiful Grade I listed Tudor manor house located near Guildford, Surrey. Set in 1400 acres of rolling parkland the House has changed little in over 500 years. It is a fitting example of Elizabethan architecture and features various exemplary works of art. The reclaimed honey-coloured monastic stone from the ruins of the Cistercian Abbey of Waverley was used in construction between 1562 and 1568.
As you make your way along the mile-long driveway up to the main House at Loseley the wonderful countryside it resides in becomes apparent. The original estate has remained in the lineage of the More-Molyneux family since the beginning of the 16th century. Loseley Park is still a family home of the More-Molyneux family and they welcome the public to enjoy the house and gardens of this magnificent Elizabethan estate.
Elizabeth I on a visit to Loseley House declared it was not ‘adequate’ for her to visit and asked for something bigger to be built hence the new house replaced and upgraded the former house. As you enter The Great Hall you will see panelling from Henry VIII’s Nonsuch Palace, fine wood carvings by Grinling Gibbons, George IV’s coronation chair, and a collection of royal paintings.
The drawing room with its gilded ceiling commissioned for a visit by James I’s is breathtaking. The enormous fireplace designed from one huge slab of chalk by Hans Holbein sits amongst carvings dating back to 1570 commemorating Elizabeth I’s visit. The house also contains a rare painting of Anne Boleyn. With the original, untouched furniture and finishings you really do feel transported back in time.
A stroll through the delightful gardens is a must at Loseley. Gertrude Jekyll made the principle design for the 2.5 acre Walled Garden which follows a series of themes running through them, each with unique planting and feel to them.
An extensive upgrade of the gardens occurred in 1993 with the Rose Garden which now boasts over one thousand bushes. Further work saw improvements to the Flower Garden with its maze-like quality. The Herb Garden is an experience for the senses and the Organic Vegetable Garden provides tasty local produce.
Encasing the gardens is a wall as old as the house itself. Be amazed as you wander the vine walk with its wonderful wisteria. When you reach the moat check out the old mulberry tree for at this sacred site there is supposedly a family prophecy!
