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.

Laura and Jonny's Pre shoot

Laura and Jonny’s Pre-Shoot Blog

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..

Rebecca and Simons Wedding

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.
