Wedding at Coombe Lodge

Owing to the theme of unique wedding at Coombe Lodge, I've decided to bring you the wedding of Carly and John.

Carly contacted me after finding me as a recommended supplier by Coombe Lodge, and I'm so thrilled she did. It's always a privilege to be a part of something so special, and with the individuality that came with this wedding - including the wedding dress by Cocoa Couture in Cheltenham and pictures by Bristol's Suspension Bridge - came a day full of treasured memories. They married in Clifton, before moving on to Coombe Lodge for the reception.

The cars came courtesy of De Gournay Wedding Cars, and the cake from Pretty Amazing Cakes. Both helped to create a one-of-a-kind feel for the day. To match Carly's beautiful dress, her hair was done by Clair Swinscoe Hair. The wedding rings were designed by Dagons Workshop in Clifton Village, and the music came by way of The Wedding Players. The flowers were provided by Lucy Anna Flowers. All these things added to the day to make it memorable, but perhaps the most memorable part of all was this:

A vintage plane made a few circles in the air, much to the surprise and enjoyment of the guests! Carly organised it as a surprise for her new husband, who was overjoyed. Their first dance was something to be remembered too; perfectly choreographed and well prepared.

A beautiful sunset framed the final moments of the day, and what a day it was! I wish Carly and John all the best in their future together.

"Martin photographed our wedding at Coombe Lodge in May 2015 and was absolutely fantastic. He arrived early and stayed with us until really late, we have a fab album, all our photos, iPhone album and he even surprised us with film clips during Church and of our first dance. Martin captured every moment for us, everything we asked for and much more! We took the option to have a photo booth in the evening and I'd highly recommend that as well - our guests thought it was great fun!"

Nathan and Catherine decided to go for Coombe Lodge wedding. They were married recently in a beautiful ceremony at one of my favourite wedding venues.

Nestled at the foot of the Mendip Hills, within the North Somerset & Bristol area, Coombe Lodge has breathtaking views across the Chew Valley. It is in a picturesque rural location yet easily accessible by road  just a few miles from Bristol Airport. As a wedding venue Coombe Lodge promises exclusive use of the house and gardens. It's a tranquil oasis, ideal for wedding receptions and ceremonies.

Coombe Lodge extends wonderful views and backdrops for a classic affair, and Nathan and Catherine's was nothing short of beautiful.

Currently living in New York, both Nathan and Catherine are originally from the UK and chose to honour their roots by coming home to celebrate their union. Luckily for me, their wedding was not the first time I had photographed them; I also captured their "grafitti" engagement session in Bristol.

There were lovely pops of blue and bronze throughout the day, with teal dresses and unique flowers and bracelets. Catherine looked stunning in her dress from Teokath of London and her make up by Cat Parnell. The couple chose Nina Bromham to sing them through the day and into the evening.

It was a wonderful celebration, with guests flying in from all over the world. After incredible hilarious speeches there was a beautiful sunset that afforded gorgeous evening shots of the newlyweds and their guests.

It was a truly lovely wedding day to be a part of, and I wish Nathan and Catherine all the best in their lives together.

Rhi and Jay were married in a civil ceremony, in what was my first of four weddings at Coombe Lodge in 2014.

The bride and groom both come from Leeds, and when deciding on a venue for their big day they fell in love with the grand nature and the beautiful gardens of Coombe Lodge.

The day was freckled with some rain here and there, which meant we had to move indoors for some of the pictures. The weather didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits, however; the atmosphere was joyous from beginning to end. Rhi wore a dress from Lily Oliver Bridal Boutique, with make up by Amy Elizabeth and hair by Becks from Thairapy. The happy couple had two musical acts; Ruth Kenyon, a harpist whose music was stunning, and a band for the after party by the name of Three Scots and a Barman. The flowers were courtesy of Lisa Elliot Floral Design.

There was a photobooth in the evening, accompanied by some creative portraits of the newlyweds that I always do at Coombe Lodge wedding. Rhi and Jay are a wonderful couple with an equally wonderful sense of humour between them. It was a fabulous day, and I’d do it again tomorrow, rain and all!
