The Lost Orangery had been on my radar for some time. Wedding photographers, like me, who have plenty of years shooting under our belts tend to have captured weddings at most venues throughout the UK but will always have a secret wish list of those we haven’t yet worked at. And as much as I am happy shooting weddings in pubs and back gardens (and regularly do) the chance to have a quirky, eccentric and slightly bonkers country pad as a backdrop always gets my creative juices flowing.
When Pat + Imogen initially booked me The Last Orangery was a private hire attached to Euridge manor, a hidden gem that only couples with the foresight and creativity of P+I would think of for a wedding. But it didn’t take long for this hidden gem to realise it had all the potential to be a perfect Wedding Venue and by the time of P+I’s big day it offered the chance to get “officially” married in the Orangery AND the quite simply stunning Boat House overlooking the bonkers blue boating lake.
Pat + Imogen both have a photography background and met whilst studying photography. Pat now works with one of the UK’s leading portrait photographers and like so many of my other couples from creative fields this makes them the perfect clients, as like me they have a passion and interest in photography and to be trusted to capture their wedding is always a great privilege.
The Wedding Day
Having a free run of the venue meant Imogen , Pat and all their squad could get ready onsite allowing me freedom to flit between everybody whilst really settling in to all that Euridge has to offer: The amazing ceremony location, the surrounding farm buildings, the crumbling castle ruins and stunning outdoor chandelier, the bonkers indoor shell and stalactite covered grotto and even an abandoned Airstream caravan. Needless to say I felt like a kid in a sweetshop.
After the beautiful ceremony the sun shone for a drinks reception on the terrace before everybody gathered in the ballroom/ancient grotto. It really is as magical and bonkers a place as it sounds and when you add Pat, Imogen and all their wonderful friends and family it really does make for the perfect day!!
Thanks Pat + Imogen for trusting me to be your Euridge House and Orangery Wedding Photographer. I had an absolute blast…..here are fifty-ish of my favourites from your wonderful wedding day.
