Ceilidh dancing, spreadsheets and yellow shoes! An Autumn wedding photographed at Coombe Lodge

On Saturday I photographed Kelly & Erik's beautiful Autumn wedding at Coombe Lodge in Somerset. These two are just the loveliest couple ever! Their wedding was packed with love, fun, spreadsheets, ceilidh dancing and even a girl in yellow shoes (they're always trouble!). Here are two teaser photos from their wedding day in the Somerset countryside. Two things I love about photographing weddings; the privilege of being chosen to document real moments - like this instance during their ceremony where Erik placed a ring on his wife's hand, and late in the evening with just the two of them, playing with colour and light to capture gorgeous creative portraits. Congratulations Mr & Mrs L xx

Before their wedding, and on the hottest day of the year, we ventured out for their engagement photo shoot in Clifton Bristol.

Tonight's the night for Leonie & Rich's highlights following their beautiful wedding at Coombe Lodge in Blagdon, Somerset. From the sunniest of days with fields of daffodils, to fun with their hilarious 'cheese fondue' starter. Heartfelt speeches brought the cold evening in lit by fairy lights and a first dance which brought a tear to my eye. I just love these two. Here's Leonie at the very beginning of her day getting ready with her bridesmaids in the bridal suite at Coombe Lodge. To view their highlights collection click on the photo.

First dance at Coombe Lodge

Yesterday I photographed Jenny & Pauls amazing wedding at Coombe Lodge. There are lots of lovely memories and photo's to come, but as I'd posted on Saturday about seeing if I could achieve a first dance shot from outside (if the weather allowed), I thought I'd post a quick update. It worked perfectly!

I'm returning to Coombe Lodge in Somerset tomorrow for Jenny & Paul's wedding, and I'm so excited! The sunset tonight was spectacular - blazing reds and pinks... at around 8:10pm (I always make a note of the time). I'm already dreaming about what I can do with that amazing colour if we're fortunate to get it again. So as I prepared my cameras and cleaned my lenses for tomorrow, I got a bit carried away and  enjoyed some time with Leonie & Rich's photographs (which are almost ready *exciting*), and found this one which I'd captured at their wedding at Coombe Lodge a few weeks ago.

First Dance at Coombe Lodge, Blagdon

I'm working on the photographs from Leonie & Rich's gorgeous wedding at Coombe Lodge this evening, and this photo from their first dance jumped out at me. I love the slightly abstract shape made by their bodies which my light froze them in for a moment. When I'm photographing first dances I'm always curious as to how a couple will react; they're once again the centre of attention, possibly in front of hundreds of people, and I'm hunting for the little moments when they connect emotionally and physically. Sometimes it happens, and sometimes it doesn't, but when the stars collide and I capture images like this it's magical. I'm excited to be returning to Coombe Lodge to photograph a wedding this weekend and weather permitting I'm hoping to photograph their first dance from outside! Fingers crossed.
