Coombe Lodge Wedding Photographer
"Florence you are a talented, gorgeous, magical and truly talented woman! OMG a second time, I don't know how the hell you do it but you're amazing and the photos are truly wonderful! Can't believe your turn around on these wonderful photos, you're such a sweetheart! Thank you so much for making the day so enjoyable and filled with memories!"
To say I was excited for this wedding is a total understatement. From the absolute first email I knew Freya & Justin were so lovely and genuine and after they booked we exchanged many, many emails about wedding plans as well as meeting up for their SNAP & CHAT in Bristol. When I arrived on the wedding day Freya gave me the biggest hug and I felt genuinely so excited for the day to come. They had put SO much effort into the day - the flowers going up the stairs at Coombe lodge, the hand stitched names that freya had made to hang behind them, the place names everything to make their guests feel loved and appreciated (I brought back my lovely flower as my wedding favour and planted it in my garden!)
The day started like the prelude to a girlie night out, Freya had the best playlist on ever and me, her, her bridesmaids and the lovely makeup artist Evie just sang and danced around the place all morning. When we finally calmed down enough to actually make it down the aisle they had a gorgeous outdoor ceremony in the sun before sipping bubbly and eating ice-cream with their guests on the lawn outside.
After some delicious food (always SO good at Coombe lodge!) were the speeches and one thing I remember about this day was Justin's whole speech was talking about how he was grateful he was - lucky to be sitting in a room with everyone he loves and a woman he adores, marrying her. And to me that's what it's all about with weddings, bringing together all of your nearest and dearest and appreciating everything that's happened to get up to that point.
The sun even graced us with one of it's epic golden hour sunsets so we raced out the field at the back of Coombe Lodge and took some looking over the hills. Before the call of the dance floor was too much for Freya and we spent the rest of the night boogying away (also, her and her dad had THE most epic father & daughter dance ever - complete with many an air guitar..)
Wish you guys ALL the happiness in the world as it's no more than you both deserve.
"Florence is AMAZING and has mad skills when it comes to photography, she's also a ray of sunshine and a delight to be around. We were nervous about finding a wedding day photographer for our Coombe Lodge wedding day as we hate posey and structured photos and would much rather be behind the lens, than in front, but Florence put us at ease from the first email, through the trial shoot (totally worth doing by the way) right to the end of the wedding day. The memories and moments and way she's captured them are priceless. Her professionalism is top notch (even calling us from Thailand at 2am (for her) for our first catch up) and she breezes around the wedding day so you hardly notice her, let alone the camera. For anyone thinking of booking her, do it, you won't regret it!"
