Lisa and Jasons Wedding

I met up with these two crackpots a week before their wedding at the Inn on the Lake Hotel for their pre shoot, we had a great time wandering around the shore line, we even ended up being given free cans of Red Bull from two girls doing a promotional walk.

As is typical for the Lakes it decided to pour down with rain, but this was not going to stop them from realising the dream of holding the ceremony outside with the lake and mountains as a backdrop. So everyone grabbed and umbrella and headed out to the gazebo.

As a surprise to the families and guests Lisa and Jason had organised a lake cruise on one of the steamers, everyone just cast the rotten weather aside and had a great time.

It was then back to the hotel for the evening reception. Following the traditional first dance the place erupted into a rave, none of your usual stuff for this couple they certainly know how to party..

Thanks for letting us share your awesome wedding day :-)

Bridal Preparations

Bridal Preparations..

It can be totally manic or really chilled and relaxed. Yup, I am of course referring to morning bridal preparations.

Everyone is here, makeup artists and hair dressers, are all set to make everyone look amazing. The few hours before the ceremony are some of my favourite times of the day and can produce some really nice photo’s. I do my best to stay out of the way in order to capture the mix of emotions that can occur. Right up the the moment when dad sees his daughter in her wedding dress for the first time.

Going back to the crazy hot summer we had last year for today’s awesome wedding. Lydia and Mark held their ceremony at the beautiful St Andrews Church Penrith. We then all went down to the shores of Windermere to Low Wood Bay Hotel for the wedding breakfast and reception.

Families and guest were also treated to a surprise lake cruise on Windermere, it is safe to say that the Prosecco was flowing and everyone had a fabulous time.

Thank you for making us feel so welcome..

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. 

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

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.
