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.
