Carl & Louise Combermere Abbey wedding

I recently posted some photos of Carl & Louise's pre-wedding shoot so I knew they took a great photo, I also knew from our past times together that the wedding would be hilarious, I was not disappointed! The whole day was full of laughter, so many good friends, so much colour and love..I loved every moment!! 

Some of these photos were taken by the wonderful Hannah Beatrice who helped me take photos from every angle..she was such a rock and brilliant fun when we had a little down time..thanks Hannah!

Carl & Louise got married at the beautiful Combermere Abbey, in Shropshire, I'd not photographed a wedding here before and was mesmorised by the gorgeous brick buildings and bright bright green foliage..this is a place that is very well taken care of! From the beginning of the day everyone was calm and laughing about the night before...and the boys were up for anything in their kilts (some images are not included to keep viewing clean heehee!!) I do hope you enjoy the images and if you were there, please enjoy reliving the day, it certainly was one full of created fun memories!

Louise's beautiful lace covered dress was from Gypsophila Bridalwear in Rawtenstall.
Her gorgeous shoes are from Roland Cartier.

Beautiful Mummy!

Some lovely images captured by Hannah while I was busy doing formal shots! I love having a second shooter with me to catch those moments I may never see :)

Another beautiful shot by Hannah.

The greenest trees I've seen for a long time!

We had such a wonderful day, and I'm looking forward to hanging out again with you soon!

  1. I absolutely love these set of images Lucy.

    Such a beautiful wedding day captured so well by yourself and H.B.

    From the Shadow play during prep, the details, to the formals and use of second curtain sync during dance. All Excellent.

  2. Ahhh, I love those woodland tree shots! They're just beautiful! Well done on doing such a great job throughout the day, Lucy. (And thanks for the lovely words!)

  3. Lovely images Lucy & Hannah, you really captured the day. Gorgeous venue to :)

  4. What a lovely set of images Lucy, you've done such a fantastic job capturing all the fun and emotion of the day and your portraits are superb - lovin your ocf in the woods :)

  5. Wow, fantastic images Lucy! It's impossible to pick any favourites as they are all great but I particularly like the group shots, it's obvious that you inject lots of fun in to them and the rapport you obviously had with Carl and Louise comes shining through. Great stuff :-)

  6. Hi Lucy, I've only just seen this post (eight months after it went live), but had to comment. A great set of images, rock solid throughout the day from bridal prep all the way to the first dance. Love the portraits by the lake and in between the line of trees especially.
