Loseley Park is a stunning Surrey wedding venue three miles from Guildford and set in 1400 acres of beautiful countryside. Accessed by a mile long winding drive Losely Park is a wonderful place for a classic wedding photographer.

 

A brief history of Loseley Park

Built from 1562 to 1568 during the reign of Elizabeth l Loseley Park has been the ancestral home of the More-Molyneux family for over 500 years. Interestingly the house was built from stone brought from the ruins of the ancient Waverley Abbey near Farnham replacing an existing smaller house which was deemed inadequate for Queen Elizabeth l to visit, hence the decision to rebuild it and create the magnificent Elizabethan Mansion that it still is today. Loseley Hall became a popular venue for Kings and Queens with regular visits from Queen Elizabeth l and James l whose visits inspired many of the ornate features in the Drawing Room as well as appearances from Queen Anne of Denmark and Queen Mary.

The heart of the house and the principal room is the stunning and lavish Great Hall which is used for all larger wedding ceremonies seating up to 100 guests. With it's rich dark wooden panelling complete with elaborate carvings taken from Henry Vlll's famous Nonsuch Palace along with further panels from Henry Vlll's banqueting tents, the walls are covered with striking portraits of royalty and the Molyneux family all providing a wedding photographer with a wonderful rich background for photography throughout the wedding ceremony.

There is natural light from the large bay window at the front of the house and an atmospheric bird's eye view of the proceedings is possible from the Minstrel's Gallery at the back of the hall. It does help to have two photographers to cover the ceremony from front to back so avoiding having to try and slip past everyone unobserved.

For smaller more intimate ceremonies there is also the exquisitely decorated Drawing Room with its gilded ceiling full of pendants and strapwork and the stunning fireplace which was carved from a single piece of chalk and comes complete with beautiful scrollwork detail.

Across the front lawn to the west of the house is the atmospheric ancient oak beamed 17th Tithe Barn which is used for the after ceremony celebrations seating up to 140 guests for the wedding breakfast, one half of which is converted into the dance hall area. Once again a great place for wedding photographs capturing those fun and memorable moments as everyone gets a bit sillier throughout the night. For smaller celebrations there is also the walled garden and Chestnut Lodge.

Back across the lawn to the east of the house is the walled garden, a beautiful oasis of green and colour and a great place for further wedding pictures. This area of peace and beauty is made up of distinct garden rooms each with different themes running through them: there is the rose garden, the herb garden, the flower garden, the white garden (at one end with a small fountain and canal) and finally the organic vegetable and cut flower garden. Surrounded by an ancient wall there is also a vine walk and moat walk along with spreading wisteria and a celebrated mulberry tree. This is a wonderful place, time allowing, for some beautiful romantic wedding photography of the newly-weds away from the noise and commotion of the celebrating guests. As you walk around the grounds you may also notice the Loseley dairy herd famous for its dairy products and in particular its Loseley ice cream.

As well as being a delightful venue for any Surrey wedding it is also of interest to film and TV buffs with Midsomer Murders (1997), Agatha Christie's Miss Marple (2004), Sense and Sensibility (2008), Emma (2009) and The Special Relationship (2010) to name but a few that have been filmed here.
