Cowdray House wedding by documentary and journalistic wedding photographer

This absolutely wonderful Cowdray House wedding in Midhurst was my first time as Cowdray House wedding photographer West Sussex. As a documentary and journalistic wedding photographer Surrey I have often had the pleasure to work in gorgeous country house venues, but Cowdray House, a historic country house wedding venue in West Sussex is something special all together… Scroll down to the bottom of this post for a listing of more country house wedding venues in Surrey & beyond.

As with most weddings, I captured Megan & Simon’s special day together with a second photographer. This time it was my good friend Eneka who accompanied me and took care of the groom preps while I started the day with Megan & her bridesmaids’s bridal preps in the Cowdray House Diamond Room. It was so nice to capture the loving interactions between the bride, her mum and the bridesmaids in my usual authentic style as a documentary and journalistic wedding photographer West Sussex. Especially the moment where the father-of-the-bride saw his daughter for the first time was one of those moments I managed to capture in a very natural and unposed way and I hope they will be able to treasure this moment for a very long time to come.
