Nick & Kayley Wedding at Coombe Lodge Blagdon




On Friday 22nd June I captured the #wedding of Nicholas and Kayley at Coombe Lodge. It was a perfect day, blue skies and not a cloud in sight. It was going to be my second outdoor wedding of the week, great British weather on our side. My day started with Kayley who was busy getting her hair styled by Stacey Jade hair. There was a make-up artist touching up the bridesmaids and Kayley had the flower girls each in turn sitting on her lap while she sorted there hair out. I managed to capture dress and detail shots before going to see nick and his final stages of preparations they were all looking dapper in suits provided by the original mobile Menswear. Once all the groomsmen were ready they went down stairs, got their button holes on and had a picture altogether. 
Guest started to arrive and I popped back up to see Kayley getting into her dress and the moment her dad saw her for the first time. Back outside and guests were asked to take there seats ready as the bridal party walked up the ialse. The wedding went very well under the bright sun.
The drinks reception started with a confetti shot and guests then got a welcome drink. Nick and Kayley started to get congratulated by guests before the pictures began. Lee Hatherall photography arranged the group pictures of the wedding party followed by personal shots. 
I managed to capture room detail shots with flowers by purple violets flowers and the wedding cake looked lovely. Afterwards Lee the photographer set up the big group shot followed by the family group shots. 
Just before the wedding breakfast there were the speeches, I enjoyed everybody's words and there was a lot of laughter. Just after the desert a couple of the waiters broke cover and started singing, they were singing waiters. Guests were dancing about and the conga was a memorable moment.


My evening started with getting special guest messages from family and friends, special thanks the the bridesmaids who really were a big help getting everyone on my list ticked of. It wasn't long until it was the cutting of the cake and first dance. There was also a father if the bride and bride dance, then Simon from live events got the dance floor packed playing a number of hits. My evening come to an end in spectacular style capturing a lovely sun set shot of the happy couple. Congratulations Nick and Kayley 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…
