Alex & Liv’s Coombe Lodge Wedding

Alex and Liv went all out with their navy and yellow, Disney-themed wedding at Coombe Lodge, and we’re so excited to share it with you today!

If you haven’t heard of Coombe Lodge before, it’s a stunning wedding venue you’ll definitely want to add to your shortlist. It’s a beautiful country house in Bristol, North Somerset, just on the edge of the Mendip Hills with amazing views across Blagdon Lake.

It’s ideal for wedding receptions and ceremonies from 50-160 guests, plus you are guaranteed exclusive use of their house, gardens and 12 luxury bedrooms when you book your big day with them!

The details

Like many people, Alex and Liv’s original date was postponed due to Covid, from August 2020 to August 2021, and we’ve all had to work extra hard to make sure everyone’s events still go off without a hitch. Liv, our beautiful bride, very kindly said: “Kieran was incredible throughout the whole booking process, having to postpone due to Covid and the day itself. Communication was impeccable throughout and I have spoken to Kieran via email and also over the phone. He kept us up to date with everything that was happening.”

Alex and Liv chose an outdoor wedding ceremony under Coombe Lodge’s beautiful stone archway, and their florist Emma Petersson installed a stunning flower arch outside where the ceremony was taking place.

The couple held their reception inside the spacious and airy Music Room, and the venue was certainly dressed to impress! Among the sights were a Disney-themed guest book and sweet table, a three-tier Disney wedding cake, and Disney cookies on the tables as favours. They also hired our LOVE letter light-up signs – Liv said: “The LOVE letter signs we had throughout the day…we absolutely loved them and they finished the venue off perfectly.”

Let the games begin!

Alex and Liv didn’t want to leave their guests to sit twiddling their thumbs after their ceremony, so they truly went all out with the afternoon entertainment!

As you can see in the photos below, they hired our giant inflatable Outdoor Garden Games (including Baseball, Basketball, Coconut Shy, Archery and Shooting!), our Giant Inflatable Twister, and our Inflatable Horse Racing hoppers – and they were all a huge hit! We arrived at Coombe Lodge mid-morning to set up the Garden Games, Horses and Twister, and as you can see the incredible gardens at Coombe Lodge make such an amazing backdrop for the photos!

Liv loved them: “The inflatable games we hired from Kieran were a complete hit with all our guests, originally got due to having a large amount of children coming to our wedding but actually were a massive hit with myself and loads of our older friends and family!”

First dance with LED dance floor and dry ice

The bride and groom danced to their first song, Better Together by Jack Johnson, on our LED starlit dance floor with our dry ice “Dancing on a Cloud” effect – and they loved it! Liv said: “Our first dance also included dry ice which again completely set the scene for us and our photos look incredible! We also hired the white starlit dance floor off of Kieran which we had wanted since before we booked our wedding. We loved it and really complemented our venue.”

Bristol wedding DJ gets the party started at Coombe Lodge!

When Alex and Liv first booked with us it was quite obvious they both wanted an evening to remember… Although knowing that Liv is a massive Disney fan and Alex loves his Ibiza anthems, we had to think creatively on music selection to make the evening flow!

There’s nothing we love more than creating a party atmosphere before the first dance – Alex and Liv hired our Photo Booth which always helps get people in a party mood – and we knew that as soon as the first dance was finished we’d have lots of guests throwing shapes.

Liv had these lovely words to add: “We loved the Photo Booth and I was personally buzzing there were Disney ears! We’ve got some awesome photos to look back on of our guests in the photo book Kieran provided.

“Kieran’s DJ’ing was second to none and he entertained all my guests. We loved the fact we got to request certain songs, the order they were played and the fact he’d taken note of how we were into Disney!!

“Kieran hired in a saxophone player for ourselves, Lizzie [Sambrook] and she truly made the night for us, she was incredible and everything we had wanted for our evening along with Kieran DJ’ing!”

Safe to say that Alex and Liv had an amazing day. Liv said: “Thank you so much Kieran, we couldn’t recommend anymore if we tried and your package deals are worth every single penny. You created an awesome day and evening for ourselves and all our guests.”

So what are you waiting for? Hire us as your wedding DJ and see how we can make sure your big day goes off with a bang!
