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!"

Beenish and Leon's wedding at Coombe Lodge

I was recently able to go back and shoot at one of my favourite locations; Coombe Lodge. After I photographed Katie and Bobby's wedding, they recommended me to the couple whose wedding I am sharing with you today.

Beenish - or Bee for short! - and Leon were married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony in the heat of summer. Their wedding party was rather a large one, but it made it all the more fun. There were so many people to meet and talk to, and I really felt as much a part of their day as any other guest. The evening party had a photo booth, which really set the tone as a fun and light-hearted celebration, and the wedding speech was one of the best I've heard in my time as a photographer.

Bee's flowers were from 1st Choice Florist, a Bristol-based business, and she looked exquisite in her make up by Grace Kingsley. Their choice of music was refined, with Marie-France Riboulet blowing us all away throughout the day. Bee's wedding dress was from Brides At Home and I'm so happy she chose me to capture how lovely she looked on her special day.

Rather ironically, before the ceremony could start, the setting became a magnet for bees and a trained bee-keeper had to be called to take them away! The bride found this extremely amusing!

Coombe Lodge Wedding - Rhi & Jason

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!

"We all found Martin to be cheerful, sensitive and discrete during our day and had lots of comments on how friendly he was. He made us all feel relaxed during the formal shots and we hardly noticed him mingling with his camera - some great informal photos. Our album is wonderful - a work of art! We would thoroughly recommend him as a photographer and not just for weddings." - Rhi & Jason
