Inn on The Lake

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 :-)

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

Jo and Ben's Wedding

Jo and Ben's Wedding - Inn on The Lake Glenridding

We first met Jo and Ben , and their gorgeous dog Scooby, on their pre-wedding photoshoot. We had a fabulous hour stomping around the Borrowdale Valley, chatting over their plans for the wedding day, and generally getting to know more about them. It was a rather overcast day, but it made for some spectacular skies over Derwentwater.

The Inn on The Lake was the perfect setting for Jo and Ben's wedding. On the shores of Ullswater, the lake and surrounding mountains provide a stunning backdrop. Jo and Ben had chatted about having an outdoor ceremony, and being the end of December it was a dream that wouldn't necessarily become a reality. However, the Cumbrian weather was extremely kind - it was cold, but it was one of those crisp dry days that you can only hope for in December. Following the ceremony guests where treated to nice hot mulled wine outside on the terrace.

The hotel was looking very festive with all their Christmas decorations.

Chris Gratten of Beautifully vintage-china-hire-vintage-accessories provided room decoration and centred on a golfing theme -  Ben and his twin best man brother Alec are professional golf teachers! Each of their tables was named after a famous golf course.

Thankfully the weather remained clear for us all day, and Jo and Ben where very keen to get outside again for some more photos. Jo did say that she ruined her shoes for the reflection pool and pier shots, but she said it was all worth it....

And to round the day off they held their evening reception in The Candle Room - it looked spectacular thanks to the work of Jaimie Johnston from The Memory Knot who provided the room decorations. Then one more little venture outside for some night time shots in the gazebo..
