Dale & Sophie @ Coombe Lodge


On Monday 28th May I captured the #wedding of Dale and Sophie at Coombe Lodge at Blagdon. The weather was beautiful and this was going to be my first out door wedding of 2018. My day started at Hillside accommodation to capture Sophie having her make-up applied and the brides maids getting final touch ups with there hair. Sophie had also received a letter and a bracelet from Dale. We then all went to Coombe Lodge for final preparations, I captured the dress details, a bottle of Prosecco being opened and a big cheers shot. Dale and his grooms men arrived and after putting on the button holes they had a group picture and a walking shot. Guests started to arrive and I popped back to see Sophie getting her wedding dress from A Class Brides getting done up. The bouquets of flowers looked amazing from The Sodbury Florist. Sophie had her lipstick applied and then it was time for dad to see her for the first time. A moment never to forget with a few tears among the bridal party. Down stairs and guests started to take there seats and await for the wedding to start. Joe Pike pianist player the entrance of Sophie and her bridal party. The wedding all when to plan with a couple of readings from family members.



After the wedding guests got a welcome drink and canapes, Joe continued to play his piano and A.E Photography set up the big group picture followed by the small group shots. The wedding party shots were pretty cool ending with a big walk together on the lawn. Sophie and Dale enjoyed a few romantic shots before it was time for the wedding breakfast. I managed to capture shots of the room empty and the cake made by a family member looked lovely. The speeches were before the wedding breakfast and I did enjoy all of them.


On the evening there was a sweet cart by My Sweets And Treats and a photo booth for guests to enjoy. It was still very warm and everybody enjoyed having a drink in the gardens. I must thank one of the bridesmaids for helping gather guests for special messages, she did a fabulous job and I know the bride and groom will appreciate her efforts. It was time for the party to begin, Dizzy Feet Events had set up and the surrounding up lighting made the room look very nice. Neil announced the cake cut and first dance before inviting the guests onto the dance floor and they partied the night away. Congratulations Dale and Sophie x

On Friday 3rd August I captured the #wedding of Craig and Catherine at St Andrew church and Coombe Lodge. It was a lovely day with he sun shining and temperatures were very warm. My day started at Coombe Lodge with Catherine and her bridesmaid's. Catherine was having her hair sorted while the beauty spot sorted out make-up for the bridesmaids. There was a lot of detail in the room to capture with the dresses, shoes, jewelry and a picture of Catherine's mum. Craig also was getting ready at Coombe Lodge and after capturing a few final prep shots I headed to St Andrews church.  A few guests arrived before Craig and his groomsmen arrived, there was only a little time to get a group shot of the groomsmen before more guests arrived. De Gournaywedding cars brought the brides maids and then Catherine and her dad. The bridal walk was lovely and Craig looked relived when the wedding started. During the wedding there were a couple of readings from guests and a lovely address from the mini…
