I was excited to have the opportunity to photograph the wedding of Claudia & John at Combe House in Devon. Claudia is a photographer now based in Australia, it’s always good to work with other photographers, I have a few this year but have to admit it does add a little more pressure! A big thankyou to all of the Pomms & Aussies for making me so welcome and also a massive thanks to Fiona, Mark and the team who were beyond helpful!
The location for the wedding was stunning, I love rural weddings. To do Combe House justice I’ve taken some words from their website, if you get a chance take a look, you won’t be disappointed.
“Imagine a wildly romantic Grade 1 Elizabethan Manor set in 3,500 acres of one of Devon’s finest country estates, close to the sea for long coastal walks, yet just a short drive from the Cathedral city of Exeter. Beautiful Arabian horses and pheasants roam freely as you approach Combe House along a mile of winding drive. This charming luxury country house hotel lies in Gittisham, the film location for a Rosamunde Pilcher novel and described by Prince Charles as the ‘Ideal English Village’ with its pretty Devon cob and thatch cottages, Norman Church, babbling brook and Village Green – a timeless picture of days gone by”.

Combe House was such an amazing place to shoot, one day just wasn’t enough! Here’s a few of my favourites…
