Mitch & Charis Wedding at Coombe Lodge


On Monday 4th February I captured the #wedding of Mitch and Charis at Coombe Lodge. The weather was clearing and it was set tube a lovely day. My day started with Charis and her bridesmaid's. There was a hair and make up station and this was even special as it was Charis's good friends helping her get ready. The dress was from A Class Brides and it looked truly stunning with one of the biggest trails I've seen in recent months. Mitch was also getting ready in another room and it was 
nice seeing him and his groomsmen sort out final preparations all the suits were provided by The Orginal Mobile Menswear. Sam the best man got everybodys button holes on and then all the guys went down stairs for a few pictures outside. Charis was now in her dress with mum helping do up the buttons at the back. Dad then walked in to see her for the first time followed by the bridesmaids. Down stairs and guests had taken there seats ready for the wedding ceremony to begin. ClaireDibble Harpist played the bridal party up the aisle and the wedding started. Everything went to plan and the harpist played during the signing and as the happy couple walked back up the aisle. 
Guest got a welcome drink and went outside into the gardens for a big group picture. Confetti cups were handed out to guests, Mitch and Charis walking down a tunnel and got covered, I'm looking forward to seeing the slow motion shot that I captured. Creating Diamonds Photography took the bride and groom around the grounds for a romantic shoot and I've captured some lovely walking shots.
I went inside the wedding breakfast room to capture the details and then went to see the guests who were relaxing listening to Claire Dibble. Guests got invited to take their seats in the wedding breakfast room and the bride and groom followed to a standing applause. The speeches were before the food and the guys did a good job. There were some extra waiters helping with food service and this was surprise entertainment. The Tip Top singing waiters broke out into song just after desert and had the whole room up singing and dancing. 
My evening started by getting special guest messages from family and friends. Parody Portraits were under the stairs drawing characters of guests, the reactions to the pictures were priceless. Mitch and Charis had their pictures drawn by Ian and then when into the party room to cut the cake and have their first dance. The dance floor soon filled up to the sounds of Paul Monroe, he had dance Hall and hip hop on the playlist. There was a selfie pod provided by Amys photography and a sweet cart. Congratulations Mitch and Charis, Thank you for letting me share your special day with you x
