Karyna & Ben | Coombe Lodge | Wedding, Somerset

Ben and Karyna’s wedding at Coombe Lodge in Somerset had it all. Fun, smiles, joy, moustaches, laughter, love, beards a few tears and birds of prey. What an incredible day – I love my job as a wedding photographer. It was SO hard to narrow this post down to a reasonable size so I apologise for the length but there are so many great moments I wanted to share with you. A big thanks to Marie for being my second photographer for the day and if you’re interested then the wedding venue was the beautiful Coombe Lodge in Somerset. Karyna wore the coolest Vivienne Westwood shoes and the flowers were by Clifton Flowers in Bristol.

Last not least Lloyd and Rose Buck for the brids of prey. Be sure to check out a few other Coombe Lodge Weddings.

    Ok Bert, seriously. This is by far your best wedding ever. Also, I adore her Vivienne Westwood shoes. Also love the dress. Also love that you shot so many photos that made me laugh out loud. Yeaaaah, pretty much love it all.

    First of all, amazing work. Seriously.

    My favorite detail of all was the mini mouse ears. Well until I got down to the falcons. Falcons!

    Um. Love love love. The details. The moments. Everything is absoolute perfection. My heart kind of sings looking at these – such real moments and I feel like I just want to become best friends with this couple.

  9. Jessica

    The bathroom shot of the girls getting ready is stunning… the quality of light, the black and white tones, the moment, everything.

  10. ayesha

    omg. so so so much win. too many favorites to name… SO MANY brilliant moments you caught, though i think my fave is the one of the little girl poking the baby in the ear :) but – oh! i mean throughout the reception! the faces, the gestures, the expressions. you captured everything… perfect storytelling.

  11. ayesha

    i’m sorry! i forgot one more thing. THE DANCE PICTURES. i think i’d buy a print of the third one – the perfect twirl of her dress, the perfect back/rim lighting. how the heck did you do that? but they’re all awesome!

  12. Amanda Basteen

    Wow. So I was trying to remember photos to tell you which were my favorites, but it was too many after a while. Let’s see, love the shoes, the welcome mat. LOVE the shot of her putting her necklace on in bw. Just all of it. Stunning work!

  13. James Bailey

    Top work as ever, Bert. I need to get married again so you can do my photos :)

  14. Brian Davis
