Inn On The Lake Wedding Photography – Gillian & Todds Wedding

Inn On The Lake Wedding Photography – Gillian & Todd’s Wedding

So what happens when & boy from New Zealand meets a girl from the UK? answer a fab wedding at The Inn on the Lake at Ullswater. The Lake district has to be one of the most beautiful places to visit and we are so glad that Gillian & Todd chose us as their Lake District wedding photographers as its also one of our favourite places. We arrived to see the guys from New Zealand playing errr croquet on the lawns, I suppose its safer than rugby and while Jane captured a few shots of Gillian & the Bridesmaids I joined Todd and his ushers. The weather was perfect for the outdoor ceremony and with views overlooking Lake Ullswater the ceremony was idyllic. The air filled with laughter as the guests drank pimms on the lawns and chatted we slipped of for some photos by the lake, well it would be rude not to. Todd & Gillian are a fun couple and the bridal party were crazy the photos were a joy from start to finish. The speeches started with emotional video messages from Todd’s native New Zealand, then a crazy speech from Gillians Dad ending with the usual best man destroys groom speech (I love speeches its such a great part of the day). This was such a relaxing wedding that after the meal guest wandered around the stunning gardens and into the evening reception for a great evening with great dancing (a fab first dance from Todd & Gillian) and if we hadn’t been spoiled enough mother nature gave us a grand ending with the most wonderful evening so we grabbed a few shots on the jetty, intact it was worth a few midge bites as the light was perfect & we shot some gorgeous images. What a great end to a great day, hope you enjoy the images. D&J xx

A huge thank you to the gorgeous Todd & Gillian and to their family & friends for all their hospitality & laughter, it was a memorable day for us. xx If your getting married at the Inn on the Lake and are looking for an experienced Inn on the Lake wedding photographer then get in touch, its a wonderful venue & we love shooting weddings there.

Wedding Photography at Langdale Chase Hotel, Windermere : Tony & Hazel

A beautiful day,a beautiful location & a beautiful couple… pretty much sums up this wedding. Its easy to see why Tony & Hazel chose the Langdale Chase Hotel with its views over Lake Windermere in the stunning Lake District and as the sun shone, guests laughed, champagne flowed we shot some gorgeous images. The wedding ceremony was very dramatic with Hazel escorted by her father descending the most ornate staircase & then out onto the gardens by the lake… simply beautiful. Tony is in the RAF and looked the part in his uniform proudly showing his medals, I was in dreamland great location all topped off by a beautiful sunset & shots on the hotel jetty overlooking the lake…. did I say beautiful enough???? because this day really was.

Thanks to Tony & Hazel for a memorable day D&J x
