One of the perks of being a wedding photographer is that I get to travel this beautiful part of the country – The Lake District. The Lake District is my favourite national park, situated in Cumbria full of scenic views. My family and I have holidays every year in the Lake District and it is also where my wife and I got married ourselves in 2011. Standing at the shore watching the waves ripple on the water’s surface, then throwing a stone into it’s depths if one of my son and I’s favourite things. So it has a very special place in our hearts. We love the ruggedness of the terrain, the incredible perfect views and the overall feeling of being in the wild it gives you. My wife and I got married ourselves, having our ceremony by Ullswater. I have to pinch myself that I’m a professional and I get to photograph weddings in this stunning region.
Rich & Becky’s Lake District Wedding
Rich & Becky asked me to come to the Lakes to capture their wedding at Storrs Hall. A wedding venue on the shores of Windermere on the eastern side of the Lake District. The day started in a lodge for bridal preparations, whilst Rich got ready at the hotel, set in acres of land. The weather can be interchangeable in the Lakes and their day was no exception. It literally chucked it down all morning and everyone was fearing for the worst as they had booked a surprise boat trip on the Lake for all their wedding guests. The day improved though, and it was a special trip for everyone. Both Becky and Rich are from the south, and therefore brought everyone up to their wedding, and many of the guests had been to this beautiful corner of the country. As a wedding photographer, it’s almost impossible to not include the surroundings in the photos. I took Rich and Becky for a walk around the venue grounds for some natural photos together, with the woods, lake and views of the mountains in the distance. Certainly no place for using flash, the natural light here makes it a joy to use a camera.
What a top day they had,a picture perfect couple, a special day to get wed. A huge congratulations to Becky and Rich, and thank you for asking me to be your Lake District wedding photographer. Here are just a few shots from their day for you to look through and enjoy. Thank you to Herve Gillet for assisting on the day.
