Combermere Abbey Wedding Photography – Kelly & Rob
Kelly and Rob’s wedding was our first visit to Combermere Abbey, and so we didn’t know what to expect. From the way they described it, it is a beautiful historic Abbey building in it’s own grounds. Very nice, we thought, exactly the kind of place we love exploring.
Combermere Abbey Wedding Photography | We arrived on the wedding morning, and our expectations were truly exceeded. From the moment we started the drive over the 1000 acre estate. No to mention the collection of beautiful cottages to start the morning preparations. So old, unique and important are the buildings we got to spend the day in, we even had to park the car a distance away to prevent damage to the historic cobblestones of the courtyard.
Kelly and Rob, with their grounds of friends and family, had their own cottages to spend the morning. With Bolly flowing and breakfast on the go, we were made to feel like a real part of the family right from the off.
The wedding ceremony was held in an orangery, reached by a maze of trained pear and apple trees. We followed Kelly and Rob through the maze to the reception rooms, another quirky and beautiful setting in the walled gardens, to view the wedding breakfast room before we headed out to shoot some portraits with them.
It was hard to know where to start on this vast and beautiful estate. Luckily, Combermere Abbey has it’s own fleet of vintage cars to transport couples around in. We all climbed into a unique car, designed by a former resident of Combermere Abbey, to head to the lake.
We spent some time around the lake and historic buildings, wonderful old oak trees and sculptured gardens, before heading to the party. Kelly and Rob’s gin-themed table plans were superbly creative, and we were sat on Langton’s – one of our personal favourite gins!
We couldn’t resist taking advantage of the evening light as the sun began to set, and so we headed back to the cottages and cobbled courtyard where the day had begun, and into the fields beyond.
