Frequently Asked Questions

Why should we book you as our photographer at Coombe Lodge?

As regular visitors to this stunning location, we know all of the best spots for your family and couples photographs and where the sun sets for those romantic “Golden hour” images. With such a wealth of photo backdrops and beautiful scenery, we’ll be spoilt for choice as to where to take your photos. It goes without saying that we have professional liability insurance, the latest camera equipment and software as well as providing full contracts upon booking. Check out our reviews and testimonials too – it’s important to hear the views and opinions of real-life clients. 

How early should I book you to be photographer for my Coombe Lodge wedding?

Congratulations, you’re engaged and have chosen your date and venue. It’s time to secure your booking and to book your wedding photographer. We can be booked up to 2 years in advance, with the average time being a year before the big day. Don’t worry, if you are getting married sooner than that, please send us a message and we can check our diary. We take lots of last-minute wedding bookings – such as off-season or weekday weddings, as these generally have more availability. If you’ve booked a Saturday wedding in June, July or August, it’s important to book as soon as possible – which we’d love to be us! Another great incentive to book early is to guarantee your package price and potentially save you money. Even if your wedding is 2 years away, you will only pay the prices at the time of booking. 

How much does it cost to hire you as our photographer for a Coombe Lodge wedding?

When it comes to ensuring your wedding day has a physical reminder of the emotions, love, laughter, romance and fun, a professional photographer is something you can’t afford to scrimp on. After all, you only get to experience the day once, and it often passes in a magical blur. With a full day of photography, you can experience the day all over again, anytime you please.
