Lucy & Tim: Elegant Autumn Wedding at Combermere Abbey

I am just eternally in love with Lucy & Tim’s elegant wedding at Combermere Abbey - it was just exquisite and so filled with love. Lucy looked incredible in her Ronald Joyce dress and cathedral length veil, carrying a bouquet of freesias.

For their ceremony, Lucy & Tim chose to get married in a tiny white church on the Welsh border, and I think I can safely say I’ve never seen a lovelier, more charming church. It made for the most perfect small, cosy ceremony and was officiated by one of the most wonderful vicars I’ve ever met.

The rain stopped and started all morning, and just as we arrived at Combermere Abbey it suddenly went from a downpour to sunshine.. we couldn’t have asked for better timing! The wind made for some amazing veil photos and their joy was just palpable and shone through in the photographs.

I just love the unique layout of Combermere Abbey’s walled gardens, with their reception room hidden amongst a maze of fruit trees that hosted welcome drinks and a string quartet.

The styling for their reception was traditional with a modern twist: big, beautiful arrangements of ivory roses with dotted greenery with tea lights in baubles hanging down. Their top table was decorated with a wall of candles which gave a stunning atmosphere as the sun went down.

One of my favourite things about their day was that their guests were so ken to dance that they were boogie-ing along as the band did their sound check! Needless to say it was an amazing evening with a full dance floor from the minute their first dance finished to well after we left!

Thank you both for the privilege of photographing your incredible day - it was magical from start to finish.
