8 Romantic Wedding Photo Ideas At Combermere Abbey

Inspiration – 17.10.18


Your wedding is a celebration that you’ll pour your heart (and a whole lot of time!) into, so it only makes sense that you’ll want to treasure those moments long into your marriage. We’ve put together our favourite wedding photo ideas to help you do exactly that. Check out these tips for unforgettable wedding photos that you can capture at Combermere Abbey and add them to your photography list.

1. The Confetti Shot

The Glasshouse forms the perfect backdrop for your confetti photos. With a timelessly romantic aesthetic and courtyard just in front, your guests can gather around, ready to fill the air with fluttering confetti. The insider trick to get the best confetti photos is to ask your guests to throw the confetti up and over you, rather than straight at you. Get this right and you’ll be showered in petals while your photographer captures those fairy-tale wedding photos.

2. The Fruit Maze

You’ll have walked down the aisle past this Cheshire wedding venue’s fabulous Fruit maze, so why not explore it to capture some unforgettable photos? In spring, summer and autumn, the maze will be a haze of lush leaves and blossom, followed by sweet fruits. Come winter, the maze transforms into a twinkling scene of bare branches, glittering in the frost.

3. Your Day From Above

Whatever time of year you choose to marry at this Cheshire wedding venue, include a drone. With the added height, you can capture an incredible aerial image like this one for your wedding photos. It’s one of our favourite wedding photo ideas!

4. The Walled Gardens

Breathe in the heady scents of roses in full bloom inside the Walled Garden. In summer, the red bricks are flushed with the flowers of climbing roses. In the heart of the garden, the beds and borders sway with quintessentially English blooms. Choose this stunning setting for the most romantic of your couple wedding photos – just like Rachael and Tom did.

5. Get The Wedding Party Involved

As you explore the rest of the gardens, it’s time to get your bridesmaids and groomsmen involved. You could capture laid-back wedding photos as you play garden games on the lawn. Or, make the most of quirkier wedding photo ideas with group photos taken in and around the topiary.

6. The Abbey

At the heart of this Cheshire wedding venue is the Abbey, a complex of medieval and 16th century buildings that are rich in history. This magnificent architecture forms a stunning backdrop for any wedding photo.

7. Down By The Lake

Combermere Abbey is home to one of the largest private meres in the UK. You’ll wake up to views of the water from your North Wing honeymoon suite, but don’t wait until then to explore this picturesque idyll.

Sneak away at sunset to take wedding photos that drip with romance in front of the mere. In this quiet, secluded spot, the only risk of a photobomb is from the resident swans!

8. The Ancient Woodland

This Cheshire wedding venue is tucked into a pocket of ancient woodland, creating yet more wedding photo opportunities for couples who wed here. You could choose reportage photos as you wander through dappled glades. And for a fun twist, how about taking group photos in between the trees?
