Coworth Park Wedding
A couple of weeks ago it was time for Remy and Cesar to tie the knot, you may remember them both from their Regents Park pre wedding shoot. I was really looking forward to their Coworth Park wedding, at the property they have only had a handful of weddings as it was only opened late last year, so there won’t be to many Coworth Park Wedding pics floating around yet & I felt very privileged to shoot there.
The Bridal part got ready at Palm Hills Hotel, which is a lovely boutique property in Ascot, I think they only have 10 or so rooms.
After the ceremony it was on to the Coworth Park Wedding reception
Its a beautiful venue set in its own 200 ache grounds, right next to the Polo centre, which most weeks has a game on, usually open to the public so you can just stroll up and watch a match. The actual property has only been open for a few months, but it is very very old………. or 3 walls are very very old – it was a complete ruin when the Dorchester got hold of it, but as it was a listed building they’ve rebuilt it including the 3 old walls to the exact plan when it was 1st built all that time ago.
A wild flower garden at the Coworth Park Wedding is always a win
I guess it will depend on the time of year you have your Coworth Park Wedding to the type of wild flowers in the meadow, Remy and Cesar were lucky, loads and loads of colours for them
Here’s a little bit of history about the property from the Coworth Park website
“Coworth Park House is a handsome Georgian building dating back to 1776. Throughout the 1800’s the estate has passed through the hands of a number of owners. It is perhaps best known as the home of the 17th Earl of Lord Derby who bought it in 1899 and lived there for almost 50 years until his death in 1948. His love of racing led to three winners of the Derby, named after the 12th Earl, and six of the St Leger. However an association with equestrianism began even before he bought the estate; the Prince and Princess of Wales, the future King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra stayed there in 1879 and 1883 to enjoy the racing at nearby Ascot.
After Lady Derby’s death in 1957, the house was converted first into a convent school and later into offices. In the mid 1980’s Selfridges and Fortnum & Mason founder, Galen Weston took over ownership and developed its first polo field. In 2001 it was taken over by Dorchester Collection who have painstakingly recreated the Georgian Manor House and picturesque grounds to create a truly stunning Country House Hotel and Spa.”
I’ve been lucky the last couple of weeks and done quite a few county house weddings, yea yea, i know this is now a hotel, but i was someone’s house once, and in the country too
