Knepp Castle Estate Wedding Photographer – Jess & Dan’s Outdoors Lakeside Wedding

Knepp Castle Estate Wedding Photographer – Annamarie Stepney Photography.  I was over the moon when Jess and Dan asked me to capture their stunning outdoors lakeside wedding here.  With it being just a few miles from my home in Horsham, I was aware of the wonderful rewilding project the family who own it had started back in 2001.  The whole ethos behind how they run the estate, is to be applauded. Freedom and real conservation are at the heart of what they do, and this very much trickles down into the weddings they hold there.  With the most beautiful parkland and stunning lakeside location, it makes for the most wonderful backdrop to hold your wedding and celebrations.

Jess and Dan told me that being lovers of the outdoors and nature, it was the perfect place for their ‘I do’s’.  Their actual wedding day stands out in my mind for many reasons – not least for it’s stunning location, the much laughter shared with their lovely families and friends, Jess’ gorgeous boho vibe, the heart felt humanist ceremony led by the wonderful Claire, a surprise motorbike exit and scrumptious food by the wonderful human and talented Chef that is Marianne from Jam & Tea, but also for being one of the hottest wedding days I’ve ever worked and the day England beat Sweden in the 2018 World Cup Quarter Finals (I’m no football fan.  Just letting you know why there’s images of guests crammed around their phones and drinking Stella! ha).  Go see for yourself, and enjoy!






I'm a Sussex based wedding photographer, but I love to shoot all over the south east of England and if you're planning a destination wedding, I'm all ears.
