Jessica and Elliots Wedding Day

I am going to take everyone back to the glorious days we had in September for today’s preview.

Jessica and Elliot held their wedding ceremony at St George’s United Reform Church in the beautiful village of Thornton Hough and then we went on to Inglewood Manor. The hotel and grounds never fail to impress no matter what the weather is doing, and lends itself to some awesome photography opportunities.

We must thank everyone attending the wedding for treating us almost like family members, we had a fantastic time and where made to feel really welcome.

Paula and James Wedding

We had an amazing day with these two nut cases. Paula and James tied the knot at the amazing Lanercost Priory and then on to the fantastically quirky Kirklinton Hall for the reception and evening festivities. Even the weather did not dampen their spirits as it is quite normal here in Cumbria it decided to chuck it down with rain. Thankfully it was short lived and cleared up in time for some awesome photo’s around the building and surrounding gardens.

For the evening reception they provided a BBQ and a series of fire pits outside in the grounds.

Vicky and Matthews Wedding Day

Wow… It had to be one of the hottest days of the year for Vicky and Matt’s big day.. Blencowe Hall near Penrith never looked nicer in the sunshine..

The wedding was really relaxed and intimate, they even had their dog wearing a fancy flower necklace. 

The ceremony was held in the large sitting room, and felt really homely, so much so it felt like they where getting married in someones house.

After the ceremony everyone was treated to an alfresco barbecue. 

Amy and Toms Wedding Day

It was great to be back at Crabwall Manor Hotel and Spa as it has been a while since our last visit, and always great to be back.

Today we were here for Amy and Toms wedding. The day started at the Village hotel in Bromborough for bridal preps, I will really liked the striped wallpaper in the room, before moving on to Crabwall for the ceremony and reception. Tom had the biggest smile on his face when he opened his wedding gift from Amy, an awesome Tag Heuer watch.

Jamie-Lee and Adams Wedding Day

Going back to the fabulous summer we had this year and it was another scorcher of a day for Jamie-Lee and Adams wedding, this time we were at the Inn on the Lake Glenridding. We consider it a privilege to be able to work here, the lake and mountains provide such an amazing backdrop.

We had a fantastic day with Jamie-Lee and Adam, and the children certainly kept us on our toes and provided some entertaining photo opportunities. Thank you for making us feel so welcome.. :-) x

Laura and Jono's Wedding

Laura and Jono’s wedding had a nautical theme owing to the fact that the Groom is in the merchant navy some of his colleagues were on hand to provide a guard of honour with swords as the happy couple came out of church. They were basically locked in until they had a kiss..

Following the ceremony the day continued at the amazing Askham Hall for the wedding breakfast and evening reception. It is always so nice to have everyone outside to enjoy the sunshine and beautiful gardens.

Paula and James' Wedding Preview

Paula and James decided to hold their wedding ceremony at the amazing Lanercost Priory near Brampton Cumbria. Even the pouring rain did not dampen their spirits as they had the biggest smiles all day. Following the ceremony everyone headed off to the amazing Kirklinton Hall for the reception and evening celebrations. Thankfully the rain held off just in time to go out and explore the hall and surrounds. They even arranged to have bonfires set up outside during the evening.

Catherine and Michael's Wedding Preview

Here is a little preview from Catherine and Michaels wedding.

Another scorcher of a summers day.. We headed down the M6 to Cheshire again for today’s wedding. Following a ceremony at church we all made our way to the amazing Mottram Hall for the reception.

Catherines choice of flowers was awesome. Everybody was decked out in beautiful sunflowers.

Laura and Jonny's Pre shoot

A couple of weeks ago I met up in Borrowdale for Laura and Johnny’s wedding pre shoot. We decided it was nice enough to spend some time by the lake before venturing up into the hills. Apart from a bunch of school kids the place was deserted, kind of unusual for the location..

We had a great time, so I decided to share a few shots from the shoot. Really looking forward to their wedding a the end of this month..

Emma and Matthews Wedding Blog

Back on home turf for todays blog feature for Emma and Matthews amazing wedding day. They held their ceremony at the beautiful Saint Andrews Church in Greystoke, Penrith, then went on to the fabulous Greystoke Castle for the wedding reception. 

Everyone was so friendly and relaxed which was just as well as most of the male guests are full time professional rugby players...

Despite a downpour of rain the castle grounds made an awesome backdrop for a very cool (rainy) photo shoot..

Rebecca and Simons Wedding Blog

The amazingly quirky Kirklinton Hall was the setting for Rebecca and Simons wedding day. The Cumbrian weather even behaved itself and stayed dry and sunny all day. Their guests were treated to lovely BBQ in the afternoon with popcorn and ice cream on tap for afters. Sadly not many people (including the groom) managed to stay onboard the rodeo bull ride for very long.

Lynn and Tims Wedding Day Blog

Sunny Stockport for todays wedding. Lynn and Tim held their ceremony at Norbury Church in Hazel Grove before moving on to the amazing Mere Court Hotel for the wedding breakfast and reception. 

A great friend of ours, Mike Cullerton, was Master of Ceremonies with his very own inimitable style of laughs, but all the time keeping an eye on proceedings - it is always great to meet up with him.

Another first for us today was Stuart Barkley who was there to provide a live painting of the wedding breakfast, he even invited the bride and groom to add a few little touches to the finished art work.

The evening reception went of with a bang (literally) with 2 enormous confetti cannons.

Toni and Simons Wedding

It had been a long time since our last visit to Stirk House in Gisburn, Clitheroe. We were here today to capture images and video for Toni and Simons wedding. I have to admit it was freezing cold but the sun did it's best to stay out so that we could get some really nice shots in the gardens. 

We had a treat during the evening shoot as the huge tree in the garden was lit up with hundreds of fairy lights, plus a bit of madness with a load of sparklers

Jayy and Ryan

I met up with Jayy and Ryan a few weeks before their wedding day for an engagement - pre shoot down in the lakes. We had a great time wandering around the shores which gave us time to have a good netter about the plans for the big day. 

Following on from a church ceremony in Whitehaven the happy couple decided to hold the wedding breakfast and reception at Whitehaven Golf Club. Lucky for us it was a lovely day and the view was spectacular over the Cumbrian fells.

Gemma and Tom

We went down to Nuthurst Grange in sunny Warwickshire for Gemma and Tom's wedding day.

The happy couple decided to hold the entire wedding day at the hotel, which was a fabulous idea as the hotel and grounds are amazing; lots of nice quiet spots for a photo shoot. The venue also looked fantastic when lit up for the evening celebrations.

CPD Photography - Cumbria Wedding Photographer

Courtney and Joe

We were almost on the doorstep for Courtney and Joe's Lake District wedding. The ceremony took place at Kirkby Stephen Parish Church, on a very hot and sunny day. Being a Cumbria wedding photographer it is not unusual to encounter all the seasons in one day!

The happy couple held their reception at the stunning Laura Ashley Belsfield Hotel on the shores of Windermere, where everyone was made to feel like movie stars. After the wedding breakfast we took the bride and groom down to the lake shore for some wonderful setting sun photos - even the swans made an appearance.. I hope that the photos manage to sum up just how special the day was.

Kristy-Leigh & Luke

Being a Cumbria Wedding Photographer has enormous benefits due to the amazing scenery. However, it is always a privilege to be asked to shoot a wedding elsewhere. Today we are off down south to Hertfordshire for the wedding of Kristy-Leigh and Luke.

They held their ceremony at the beautiful Datchworth All Saints church and then on to the amazing Three Lakes Westmill Farm for the reception. The surroundings and views where truly breathtaking. I really do hope we have the opportunity to shoot here again at some point..

Joanne & Carl's Wedding

We first met Joanne and Carl over two years before their wedding day, on a very rainy and cold day in Kendal, to discuss the plans for their big day. Fast forward 18 months and we met up again in Liverpool's Sefton Park for their engagement photoshoot - I may be a Cumbria wedding photographer but I really do get everywhere! Thankfully the weather was a lot nicer.. 

Joanne and Carl had decided to hold their wedding ceremony and reception at the fabulous Abbey House Hotel by Furness Abbey in Cumbria. Despite the initial nerves Joanne sailed through the day and everything went off without a single hitch - even the weather behaved itself, giving us lots of opportunities to go outside for some really nice shots.

Jenny and Mark's Wedding.

We had an awesome day with Jenny and Mark, even the weather decided to behave itself for once. They chose Craxton Wood Hotel to hold both their ceremony and reception. Always a great venue due the fabulous grounds, which provided a really nice backdrop for the photo's.

Joanne and Carl's Pre-shoot

Today we are off down to Liverpool (Sefton Park's - Fairy Glen) for Joanne and Carl's wedding pre-shoot. It was really really hot and sunny so we were very thankful to find some nice shaded areas under the trees.

The place is really beautiful, and very popular with the locals - lots of people enjoying the sunshine having bbq's and playing family games of rounders etc. We where even treated to some music from a band of buskers.

Not long now to wait guy's, only a couple of weeks until your big day in June..

Pete :-) x
