Amy and Sean held their wedding at the beautiful St Andrew’s Church, before heading back to Coombe Lodge for a pretty sage green/pale pink-themed country style reception. Amy and her maids held their morning preparations in the bridal suite at Coombe Lodge (home of the iconic rolltop bath that never fails to amuse the bridesmaids!

The rain fell and fell on their big day (it’s okay, it’s expected; we are in England!) but I do love to photograph a bit of rain; it lends itself nicely to all sorts of interesting compostations. This was that Friday in July where, sandwiched between two weeks of sunshine, the clouds gave up and let rip. Fortunately, Coombe Lodge is perfectly equipped for these circumstances (one of the best venues I know, for inclement weather), so all was well in the end. A table magician kept guests entertained in the bar and hall, during the drinks reception. Amy, Sean and I snuck out into the drizzle (it had calmed down somewhat), and they were both very happy to enjoy some alone time and to make the most of the beautiful gardens at Coombe Lodge.

I`ve been regularly photographing weddings at Coombe Lodge for four years now. I`ve always enjoyed capturing the way that the light filters in through the windows; never harsh or distracting, it gives a soft glow which bounces off the polished wood and sparkly chandeliers.

I`ve always been very aware that couples seeking a Coombe Lodge wedding photographer look for the very posed, sometimes quite staid, traditional photography. This is understandable as Coombe Lodge`s archways and manicured gardens tend to beg for this style. As a fine art photographer, I strive to shoot using the light and a colour palette. Features of a building or gardens rarely come first when I`m composing and this means thatin turn, I find it easier to tailor my photography to suit your style and personalities, rather than purely suiting the Lodge`s more obvious `photographic opportunities`.

My photography is aimed at a creative/artistic, discerning couple who are marrying at Coombe Lodge for the beauty, space and service that the venue has to offer, and not simply because it`s features beg for posed traditional photography.


Suzanne & Andy | Coombe Lodge Wedding

Suzanne & Andy’s 28th December Coombe Lodge wedding was a mix of festive fun and new year glamour. The Lodge was wintry and interesting, with none of it’s stately flora in bloom, but plenty of roaring fires and snug sofas. Suzanne had chosen beautiful hand-painted baubles for her guest’s favours and a sumptuous mix of black, burgundy and plum as a colour scheme. I had an absolute ball, and was very grateful to receive a plate of gorgeous Mediterranean antipasti to follow my homemade ‘turkey leftovers’ sandwiches. I don’t ask to be fed at weddings…but who would turn down a free plate of food?!
