Goodwood House Wedding Photographers
This was our first time as Goodwood House wedding photographers and we completely get why Haran & Maryam chose this venue!
The Goodwood Estate is nestled at the foot of the South Downs just outside Chichester in West Sussex and is also famous for its horse racing meetings and the Goodwood motoring festival. When Meyer and I arrived in the morning, one of the staff showed us around the house and shared some amazing stories of history and art. We absolutely love this place and feel so lucky to have been Goodwood House wedding photographers for Haran & Maryam’s special day.
Goodwood House is stunning and offers a truly magical experience for any wedding. There is just so much character and history, especially with each room having its own unique decor. And it also provides a dramatic setting for one of the most significant private art collections in the country!
Another reason why Haran & Maryam chose Goodwood House was because of its connections to motorsport and aviation. As soon as they stepped in, they immediately knew that this was where they wanted to get married! Haran & Maryam have known about Goodwood for many years as they’ve attended the Goodwood Festival of Speed and other events which take place on the grounds each year. ‘It’s one of our favourite places to be’, says Maryam.
So, where do we begin with Maryam & Haran? They have have such a genuine friendship and deep love for each other and our story with them started a long time ago when we were the photographers for a few of Haran’s cousins over the last couple of years. In a way, every family wedding that we do feels like a little reunion, rather than work!
Every person has their favourite moment at a wedding and when we asked Haran & Maryam about their favourite parts of the day, this is what they had to say.
Haran: “Being given my wedding presents from Maryam on the morning of the wedding, which was a watch and my favourite whisky. And spending time with all of our family and close friends.”
Maryam: “Walking up the aisle and seeing Haran, and the ceremony.”
What we love about every wedding is just how unique they all are. And what we love even more, is when people just have the wedding that THEY want to have. Haran & Maryam’s day was perfect – just as they are perfect for each other and we could not be happier that they asked us to document this for them. Thank you guys and we know you’ll continue to be best friends as husband and wife for many, more years to come!
