Photographing Tammy and Josh at Wotton House
When Tammy and Josh asked me to capture their big day here, I was very excited to return to this country house in Wotton. The lovely couple tied the knot during the ceremony at a nearby church before heading to Wotton House for their reception to celebrate. When we arrived at the mansion, I allowed them plenty of time to mingle and kick back before I lead them on a romantic stroll around the gardens to take in the scenic views as husband and wife. They were very natural in front of the camera, and with the sun shining all day long, this made for some beautiful images of the bride and groom.
I love Wotton House because of the variety of different locations available for wedding photos. The temples, the neat topiary gardens, the caves and the magnificent Old Library are just some of the areas that make fantastic compositions in photographs. On the day, I love to explore the opulent areas and how the light depicts and shapes the scene. I create artistic compositions as I go, both in the house and the beautiful landscapes outside.
Reception in the Evelyn Suite
The Evelyn Suite is on the opposite side of Wotton House to the Old Library. It’s the perfect setting for a wedding breakfast and evening reception with its pretty drapes and elegant interior. There were some moving moments during the speeches and lots of laughs too as all the wedding guests raised a glass of champagne to toast the married couple!
There was just enough time to squeeze in a golden hour sunset shoot before the party and dancing began inside the house. The dance floor at Wotton is always buzzing, and later, as the twilight hour emerged, I lead Tammy and Josh outside to capture some epic wedding images of the newlyweds framed under the deep blue night sky. When it’s dark, I love to set up my flashguns to light the scene, creating dramatic portraits within an epic landscape.
Their reportage wedding photos!
I really enjoyed capturing such a fun and relaxed bride and groom, and here are my favourite snapshots from this Surrey wedding at Wotton House. Tammy and Josh loved their artistic images and gave me some kind feedback as their photographer……
“Thank you so much Murray – we absolutely love the photos and can’t stop looking at them over and over!” – Tammy & Josh
