Coombe Lodge Winter Wedding

We photographed this beautiful Coombe Lodge Winter Wedding for Laurie and Tim just after Christmas. They came home from New Zealand to get married amongst their families and friends at the stunning Coombe Lodge. Before we headed to Somerset we called at the family home in Cardiff so that Laurie’s very special Nan could see her in her wedding dress. We worked throughout the day and evening with the brilliant young filmmaker Ben Walton and his brother Sam. It was an absolute pleasure, even if a group of guests assumed that they were our Sons. I have to (reluctantly) admit it was an easy mistake to have made!

Once again during this last year we enjoyed the incredible hospitality of the fantastic staff at Coombe Lodge. It’s truly one of our favourite venues. The Bride’s dress was a very special couture creation carried as hand luggage through three airports, all the way from Auckland! Laurie chose an understated look for the flowers, perfectly wintery white Ranunculus, stylishly created by The Wilde Bunch in Bristol.

The weather doesn’t really matter that much when getting married at Coombe Lodge. This spectacular wedding venue has gorgeous, well lit interiors as well as amazing gardens with views out to the Bristol Channel. The candlelit rooms, amazingly good food and very jolly atmosphere kept the Christmas spirit going for another few days! The champagne flowed endlessly as the party atmosphere picked up and we finally headed outside for sparklers and dancing under the Moon.

Many of our favourite pictures from this beautiful Coombe Lodge Wedding can be enjoyed in this slideshow:
