Goodwood House Wedding Photography:
It was Karena’s mum who first contacted me about her Goodwood House wedding photography, which is not as unusual as it sounds – I receive a lot of calls from close family members enquiring about photography. As I listened to the plans for the day two things were clear. Firstly, how much effort and thought had been put into this wedding and secondly how infectious weddings are in family circles.
The morning was full of laughs and champagne as Karena got ready with her girlfriends in a rented house nearby Chichester, apparently unaffected by nerves. The details were plentiful with so many personal touches to make this wedding truly unique, including Karena’s favourite champers, candles and personalised scents. Karena’s dress was a stunning Vera Wang design, matched with some very sparkly Christian Louboutin shoes.
While I captured the ladies in the morning my second photographer was with Adam, in what was an equally lovely morning with the boys sharing a few glasses of champagne, laughs and gifts.
As time ticked on Karena’s father arrived and it was immediately obvious the bond between father and daughter, with an emotional exchanging of hugs and gifts. Karena’s dad is a car enthusiast and the ladies all made their way to Chichester Cathedral in style courtesy of some very handsome Rolls Royce’s.
Chichester Cathedral is a stunning place to get married, it’s a central focal point of the city and part of the community for over 1000 years. The light and impact of the cathedral made Karena and Adam’s wedding ceremony simply stunning.
The wedding reception was held at the amazing Goodwood House. It’s only when you arrive at Goodwood House that you get a feel for the size of this venue, with it’s adjoining airfield, hotel, racetrack and golf course. The reception room is stunning with artwork spreading across the vast walls making a breathtaking entrance for guests before dinner…..and if this did not take the wind from them then Karena and Adam’s incognito opera singers surely would.
Special thanks go to Deji Johnson for shooting along side me and keeping me on my toes (again).
