Wedding Photography Coombe Abbey, Warwickshire: Eilish and Richard
It was a glorious, hot summer day in July when Eilish and Richard were married at Coombe Abbey. The family and guests arrived in a red double decker bus hired for the occasion. Eilish arrived with her Father and bridesmaids in a stylish vintage Rolls and the wedding was off to a flying start. Sometimes a couple are so happy and relaxed they just laugh and smile all day. Eilish and Richard certainly did and their happiness just shines through all the photographs.
The ceremony room was beautiful and intimate with lovely wood paneling. The guests were welcomed in to music on the violin and cello and afterwards there was a drinks reception on the terrace. Eilish, Richard and I went for a walk in the grounds for some couple shots before the wedding breakfast was served. There are so many lovely places but so little time to capture them all!
Evening reception at Brandon Hall Hotel
After the speeches we left Coombe Abbey and set off for Brandon Hall Hotel for the evening part of the reception. Eilish and Richard started by welcoming everyone and carried out the cutting of the cake, followed by their first dance.
Coombe Abbey: Beautiful wedding venue in Warwickshire
Coombe Abbey is a wonderful venue for a wedding. It is now a hotel and a grade 1 listed building. Once a country house, Coombe Abbey was a monastery in the 12th century and then a royal residence. Elizabeth, daughter of James 1, lived there in the early 17th century. If the Gunpowder Plot had succeeded she was to have been abducted and proclaimed as Queen Elizabeth 11. The house is sumptuous as you can see from the photographs and there are so many wonderful spots for photographs. The extensive parkland is open to the public and provides a glorious backdrop for a wedding.
Congratulations Eilish and Richard!
“We have just viewed our lovely photos, they are absolutely gorgeous and better than we could have imagined. Thank you so much!” Eilish & Richard
