This was one of my more unusual weddings of the year and one of the most intimate and enjoyable! I was asked to photograph Linda and Ian’s wedding at the lovely Coombe Park Hotel just outside Coventry a couple of weeks ago. The lovely couple had so many guests to invite that in the end they decided to keep the day entirely to themselves! I feel very honoured that they chose me to be with them throughout and to photograph their special day so that they could share their memories with family and friends afterwards.
Coombe Park hotel is a lovely venue on the outskirts of Coventry on the road towards the village of Brinklow. The hotel was once an abbey and the grounds are magnificent. Over the years there have been many stories of ghosts and paranormal activities – so much so that they actually run a ghost tour! ….. And the ghost tour was one of the highlights of Linda and Ian’s wedding day.
I must admit that I was worried that my presence might be a little intrusive, but Linda and Ian were so relaxed and welcoming that it worked out just fine and I’m really pleased with the number and variety of photographs that I managed to get. Here’s a taster ……
Attention to detail …. the shoes were stunning with their intricate detail
Linda and Ian met up before the ceremony to have a stroll in the beautiful grounds and to make the best of the Autumn sunshine for some photographs …..
Time for a quick drink with their witnesses before seeing off on their ghost tour ….

Back inside for the ceremony itself ….
Just married … and time for some more photographs and to explore the grounds and historical building a little more
I thoroughly enjoyed sharing in Linda and Ian’s wedding day and I’m sure that they’ll love the photographs. I stayed for several hours and took loads of images which I have posted on the password protected gallery on my main site. The gallery can be viewed by clicking here and entering the password (which is only available from Linda and Ian). Photo prints are available to purchase on my main website.
If you are getting married at Coombe park hotel and you would like a wedding photographer then please contact me. I’m taking bookings for 2011 and 2012 with some dates proving very popular already. As you can see, I’m happy to photograph small or large weddings at lovely venues throughout Warwickshire and the West midlands. It wasn’t appropriate at Linda and Ian’s wedding, but most of my weddings are covered by two of us: I am always the principal photographer and I almost always have either my husband or another assistant with me to ensure that we get more shots from different angles.
