Amy + Anthony’s Fabulous Wedding Day At Combermere Abbey, Whitchurch

Amy and Anthony chose me to be their Whitchurch Shropshire Wedding Photographer at Combermere Abbey.When I met Amy last year, I knew that it was going to be a wonderful wedding to photograph. I didn’t meet Anthony until our pre-wedding meeting in the Keeper’s Cottage but from the way Amy talked so fondly of him, they were very much in love!

Bridal Preparations in the Beckett Cottage

Amy and the Girls were getting ready in the spectacular cottages at Combermere Abbey when I met them at midday. The cottages are simply fantastic if you want to make your wedding last a bit longer! They are a really sociable way of catching up with friends and family over the duration of the wedding build up/during/after. The Boys were getting ready in the cottage next door so it was fab watching Amy and the Girls reactions watching everyone out in the Court Yard and no knew that they were!

One of the first things I noticed when I went into the Beckett Cottage (other than the fabulous light coming through the windows!) – Amy’s Maggie Sottero Wedding Dress – beautiful! along with the fabulous flowers and hair and make-up done by Nina Wren.

Glasshouse Civil Ceremony

It does not matter what time of year you get married, the natural light in the Glasshouse is always fantastic! Plenty of light and and also space to discreetly stand during the ceremony. Our bride and groom were full of emotion, excitement and smiles – it truly was a delight to photograph.

Bride and Groom Portraits and The Wedding Breakfast

Bride and Groom portraits around the Combermere Gardens is one of my favourite things to do at a wedding here. The gardens surprise me every time with different colours, flowers and light. These are just the small bits! But its great to put a beautiful bride and groom amongst all this and give them some time together!

We ventured towards the cottages and did some photos of Amy and Anthony at the Cottages – which they love and also make a very grand backdrop. This also gave our couple a chance to have some alone time and go for a spin in the 1927 Crossley Saloon.

During that time guests were enjoying the sunshine and entertainment in the gardens and the Combermere team were transforming the Glasshouse into the Wedding Breakfast room. It’s great to see the Glasshouse all set up for an intimate event for the first time.

As anticipated the speeches were very funny and emotional and were lovely to capture before we departed.

Thank you so much Amy and Anthony for having us along for your incredible day, and I really can not wait to know your favourite photos so we can design and print your wedding album!
