Broadoaks Country House Wedding Photography
The Lake District is stunning, especially today, it was ideal for Broadoaks Country House Wedding Photography. I arrived in Allithwaite for bridal preps with Nat and the girls at her parents house. The champagne made and appearance and was shared out amongst the family and bridesmaids before the girls started getting ready. It wasn’t log before the wedding car arrived, an old Rover that had been restored and looked incredible. At this point, I headed off to The Priory to meet the Vicar before Nat arrived.
The Priory at Cartmel is a stunning building, as you will see from the photos below. After speaking with the Vicar, who was really nice and modern, we waited for Nat to arrive. Mike waited at the end of the aisle as his Bride arrived. She looked stunning in her dress and Mike was clearly moved when he saw her for the first time. The ceremony was really nice. I was only able to shoot from the back and sides of the Priory but this was enough. After the ceremony, Nat and Mike walked out and round the back so we could do the confetti throw. There was chatting and hugs outside the Priory after that and then it was off to Broadoaks Country House in Windermere.
Broadoaks Country House is set in the stunning Cumbria countryside, surrounded by fields and valleys and of course, Lake Windermere. After a few group photos we jumped into my car and headed down to the lake for the portraits. One thing I pride myself on, is my ability to get a variety of different and creative shots from a small area. On this occasion, we has a small pebble beach at the side of the lake with a boat yard behind us. There were a few clouds in the sky too which is great for portraits as it gives me a nice soft light to work with.
When we got back, it was time for the wedding breakfast which was followed by the speeches. Mikes’ Dad had setup a projector with a video of Mike as a child which got lots of ‘awwwww’s from the guests. There was lots of laughing throughout and after the speeches, the room was cleared to be turned around for the evening guests.
When the band had setup, it was time for the first dance. About half way through, Nat beckoned the rest of the wedding party to join the bride and groom dancing. The dance floor was full and was still full when I was leaving, I’m sure it was a crazy party for the whole night.
A massive congratulations to Nat & Mike on their wedding and thanks to all the people who helped bring the day together. To learn more about prices for Broadoaks Country House Wedding Photography, get in touch using the contact form.
