Alice and Jay - 21st April 2012 - Coombe Lodge, Blagdon

Another fantastic wedding at Coombe Lodge in Blagdon yesterday probably one of my favourites of the year so far. As a wedding photographer it's great when couples choose to do something a little bit different. Alice and Jay chose everything for their big day because they wanted it and not because tradition disctated that they should, they were wonderfully friendly and welcoming and Tara and I loved being part of their celebrations. The couple had a really clear idea of what they wanted from their Big Day and chose beautiful bright colours. They used Chilli's as a running theme (Jay has a tiny addiction to chilli and VERY hot sauce) he wore chilli's on his button hole and the male guests recieved bottles of chilli sauce as favours. Bright red chilli peppers were also used to great effect as table decorations. Alice wore a very flattering virbrant purple dress which she complemented with neutral bridesmaids dresses. Quite extreme weather meant that sadly the couple couldn't marry outside as they wished but we managed to pop out between downpours in glorious sunshine to capture some great images. As I found out on their engagement shoot Alice and Jay really like quirky images with unusual effects. Slightly desaturated and aged looking pictures aswell as overstaurated and vignetted pictures. I'm always happy to do this kind of work on my clients photos and very much looking forward to showing them the final gallery!


  1. Your services were just perfect for our wedding. We had a fun-filled day with lots of laughter and merriment; you slotted in so well and have clearly got some amazing images that we'll fondly look back on with regularity. We can't thank you enough for helping us capture the true, quirky essence of our day.

  2. Absolutely breathtaking, tremendous meaning, and to me really encapsulated the essence of that lovely day.
    Quite beautiful, truely individual, and a unique day to remember captured with those stunning pics!
