Wedding at De Vere Wotton House in Dorking, Surrey

De Vere Wotton House – wedding photographer

As a photographer covering the Surrey area, I put my heart, mind and soul into every wedding I photograph. And in the case of Lina and Jesse, this was very important.

A photographer is not unlike a magician. We play with light to create magical moments and try so hard not to intrude on intimate moments, we practically disappear. Yet these well tuned skills were obsolete at this recent wedding.

For when a bride is so stunning or a venue is so beautiful, there is no need for illusion. I found myself no longer challenged by conjuring up beautiful memories but concerned with capturing what was already there. Additionally, the friendly guests, including the ever so helpful Dave, welcomed me as one of the wedding party and I no longer felt like an outsider looking in.

The scene was set before the guests arrived. De Vere Wotton House is a 17th century estate, with majestic architecture at every turn. The ceremony took place in an atmospheric room with vaulted ceiling, lit by delicate fairy lights.

The brides dressed equalled the dramatic setting, with a corset laced back and eye catching fish tail skirt. The groom wore a dark suit, highlighted with delicate pink tie. And the couple both wore smiles, all day long…..

After a sumptuous meal showcasing the best produce Surrey has to offer, the guests were treated  to a live performance of Adele’s song, made even special as this was a friend of the couple.

I am frequently questioned about favourite photographs and I frequently decline to comment . However for this occasion I am going to indulge myself. The venue boasts exquisite Italian gardens,  which I took advantage of for a group photograph . Surrounded by manicured greenery, the wedding party formed a heart around the couple. I took the photograph from an elevated position and adore the stunning result. Perhaps a contender for a 2017 favourite.
