Alissa & Matt’s Wonderful Welcombe Wedding

Alissa & Matt’s Wonderful Welcombe Wedding

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of photographing Alissa & Matts wonderful Welcombe Wedding.  The sun was shining & the beautiful gardens out if full bloom. After a quick wander around the grounds capturing the hotel which is surrounded by 157 acres of landscaped grounds – so plenty to photography, Leah who was will me to 2nd shoot, & I made our way to the bridal suite.

On our way up the beautiful stair case we passed a lady, rushing the other way.  Not thinking much to it other than there being a resemblance to Alissa we went to find how Alissa & the girls were getting on.  We were introduced to all her bridesmaids except her sister – who Alissa said had had to rush off to tend to the best man.  It turn out Alissa sister lucky was a doctor & the best man had come down with gastric flu and was sick in bed… not the best timing unfortunately on your best friends wedding day but he was determined not to let his friends down & wanted to carry on. I have to say considering I knew how poorly he was feeling he did amazingly well to carry on all day!

We finished the bridal preparations in the fabulous bridal suite before Leah & I met Matt & the guys in the grounds to get some images of Matt and his grooms men.

Alissa & her mom made a fabulous entrance in to the nestfield suite following her lovely niece & nephew & bridesmaids down the Aisle towards the clearly emotional Matt. After a lovely ceremony fully of laughter & tears of happiness the guests made their way outside to enjoy the sun, canapés & pimms.

Before any wedding I always make sure either the bride & groom have popped over for a coffee & catch up or at the very least had a phone call if they just can’t make it over,  to go through what is important to then & what they would like in terms of group photographs & couple images.  This way on an already busy day where the time seems to speed up 3 fold, I can make sure I capture all of those important shots but in the quickest and most organised way. And lets face in no one wants to spend hours fluffing around having a very long (unnecessary) photo-session when they could be drinking pimms & eating the nibble :-D.

We made the most of the time we had to wander around the grounds surrounding the Welcombe as well as inside on the beautiful ornate stair case as Alissa had requested.

Alissa had already asked if after the meal & speeches her & Matt could go back outside & capture some more images during the beautiful golden hour.  Certainly wouldn’t hear me complaining at that request 🙂

A fabulous day turned in to a joyous evening & just shortly after the first dance Id noticed a reflection of the sky in the windows.  I grabbed Matt & Alissa & said I promise this will be worth it before racing to the bottom of the grounds to capture the most amazing sunset that I had seen over the summer.

As my day drew to an end I left the happy couple dancing the night away.  Congratulations Alissa & Matt, I can’t wait to finish your album so you can hold the story of your beautiful wedding day ion your hands xx

Coombe Abbey Wedding photography | Marie & Julian’s Wedding

Coombe Abbey Wedding photography | Marie & Julian’s Wedding

Julian & Marie had chosen to have a Coombe Abbey Wedding, holding their special day in Coombe’s Marque on the beautiful East terrace.

I’m always very grateful when i receive a personal recommendation for my wedding photography 🙂 & after been given my details from his friend, Julian had called to talk about booking me as their wedding photographer.

The first thing I remember about Julian was his infectious laugh & how easy it was to chat with him. I knew this would be a lovely wedding to be part of. After we had gone through what he was looking for he also mentioned that he and Marie had wondered about having a wedding videographer.

As well as being Married, Stuart (kettell video productions) & I have worked together for years. Filming & photographing hundreds of weddings together throughout the whole of the UK including many Coombe Abbey Wedding’s.  To have another wonderful opportunity & to both be chosen to be part of Julian’s & Marie’s wedding was great 🙂

What a lovely day -as Stuart & I arrived at Coombe Abbey the Sun was shining, the weather was great & Julian didn’t stop smiling from the moment I saw him step out of the limousine. Marie & her ladies were equally as smiley. 😀

Julian & Marie has chosen to have their entire day filmed & photographed & afterward had asked me to produce a beautiful wedding album.

Below are just a few pages from the gorgeous wedding album I designed for then… & going by the bottle of champaign & very delicious box of choccies that they brought us as thank you gift… they were delighted by their wedding images, album & video.

New Years Eve Wedding at Coombe Abbey, Coventry – Laura & Steve’s Wedding

After photographing probably one of my longest weddings to date which spanning a whole year ! yes – a whole year !! (well ok technically 9am 31st Dec 2016 – 1am 1st January 2017 😉 ) I Just couldn’t help myself by skipping right to the very last image I photographed & editing it first.  Why? because I knew it would be one of my favourites & I was so excited to have a play with this sparkly night image.

I will be editing the rest of Laura & Steve’s New year’s eve wedding images taken at their recent wedding held at Coombe Abbey, a beautiful & unique country house hotel which I have had the pleasure of photographing at on numerous occasions.

Can’t wait to share some more when Laura & Steve have had chance to view them 🙂

Nicki & Rob’s Wedding at Allesley Church & Brandon Hall

A job doesn’t get much better when you can combine everything you love. My passion for photography, getting to be creating with wonderful wedding dresses, pretty flowers, sparkly jewellery, working with Stuart who was 2nd shooting with me on this wedding, celebrating special occasions with happy people & of course … cake! So how pleased was I that I could combine all of these with Nicki & Rob’s Wedding.

Nicki & Rob popped over a few weeks before their wedding to chat through their day & have a few informal practise shots as they were a little nervous about having their pictures taken.  I know they were nervous but they really had no need to be.  They are a lovely couple with great personalities & who obviously adore each other & this shone through in the images I captured   :).

Stuart & I headed to Nicki’s house to first capture all the pretty details of the dress, shoes, flowers etc as well as Nicki & her bridesmaids’ preparation.  It was clear from the beginning that this was going to be a lovely feel-good wedding.

After spending some time with the girls we headed to Allesley Church in Coventry to photograph Rob with his two best men & usher.  Rob was happy for fun & formal photograph so we made the most of it by getting the lads to star jump & give Rob the bumps!

It was a lovely service conducted by Robin &, once finished, we spent a little time getting some of the group shots Nicki & Rob had asked for, as well as the first of the shots of Nicki & Rob as husband & wife.

After a cheeky glass of Champaign, the happy couple made their way to Brandon Hall in style in a lovely 1933 Rolls Royce convertible, courtesy of Chris from C.G.Wedding cars

We’d had a bad spell with the weather & I knew Nicki had been worried that her wedding would be a wash out.  She’d hired out some lovely pretty white parasol type umbrellas.  Nicki hadn’t needed to have been worried as the weather ended up being glorious.  However, it would have been an awful waste to not have used the parasols & as well as some lovely shots with the couple we had great fun with the youngest bridesmaid and Nicki’s two cheeky twin brothers.

We finished our photographic coverage after the speeches, which went down very well, particularly the double act from the best men which comprised of a slide show, showing various embarrassing photos as well as reminiscing about the antics of a younger Rob.

Nicki & Rob’s wedding was a fantastic & fun wedding to photograph. Below are a few of my favourite images we took from the day.

Camilla & Paddy’s Wedding – St Laurence Church & Stoneleigh Abbey

If it isn’t hard enough planning a wedding … Camilla & Paddy planned their UK wedding whilst living in New Zealand. Camilla’s mother helped with the plans & preparation as she lived much nearer to the venues … Switzerland !

Camilla had chosen to get married to Paddy in St Laurence Parish Church, Bidford-on-Avon followed by the reception at the beautiful Stoneleigh Abbey.  With a week to go the couple had flown in to the UK to finalise all the last minute details and to meet with me to go over their photography ideas (over a very lovely coffee and yummy slice of cake).

Camilla & Paddy were very keen to have some of their photographs taken in the great Library and the grand stair case within Stoneleigh Abbey & even though the weather was superb the indoor decor is stunning to be able to photograph.

Here are just a small selection of the images taken on the day.
