Laura and Tom’s wedding is featured on English Wedding Blog!

Towards the end of April, we made a return visit to Coombe Abbey near Coventry. It had been nearly a year since we photographed at this very popular Warwickshire venue and once again we were lucky enough not to have any other weddings taking place on the same day.

Coombe Abbey is well known as a ‘dark’ venue and the interior is certainly challenging in places. However, there are many spots where the blend of strong directional light and deep shadow really works (presuming you know how to capture it properly). This is a venue that is never easy to photograph, but is also one that can yield rewarding results. The room in which Laura prepared for the day for example was one of the hotel’s ‘feature’ rooms and had large windows, lush furnishings and a layout which made the most of them, providing opportunities for some beautiful images.

Although all of Laura and Tom’s day took place at Coombe Abbey, this time we got to see completely different parts of the venue. Because they didn’t need a huge room, the couple had chosen to use two of the cosier suites – Walnut and Stuart, which are situated next to each other and have contrasting looks to each other.

This wedding was so enjoyable to photograph and Laura and Tom were just the nicest people to work with. This was a slightly smaller celebration than some of the other weddings we’ve done recently. Laura had one bridesmaid – her young sister, and Tom had his brother as Best Man, with about 40 guests sharing their day. A lovely, intimate wedding with plenty of time for everything to happen at the right pace.
