The Lake District is a great location to get married, with a huge choice and variety of wedding venues. I enjoy creating unique imagery that uses elements of your Lake District wedding venue or scenic location to reflect in your wedding photography.
Through my Lake District wedding photography, I aim to create unique memories for every couple, and I often use creative lighting to achieve visual art that you will be proud to have on a wall in your home to provide happy memories of your wedding day for years to come. As you can see in the photo, I embrace any rainy weather. Puddles are great for reflection photos, and rain can be lit up to frame you both with sparkles.
Elopement is a term used for a mini wedding where it's just the two of you. (And maybe a few family and friends). During these mini weddings, we'll have more time to spend using the dramatic vistas the Lake District is famed for.
Adventure with me to spots with great views, whilst we create natural, authentic moments whilst you're framed with the hills and water of locations like Thirlmere, Lake Windermere, or the stunning Eskdale Valley. If it's a Cumbria wedding, we have a choice of a number of beautiful waterfalls. If you've chosen one of Cumbria's mini weddings venues like Cragwood or Storrs Hall, I can share some insider tips on great locations for wedding portraits.
I personally love exploring in the area and have provided a wedding photography service at many of the regions wedding venues, so if you'd like to chat ideas about Lake District locations for mini 'two-of-us' wedding photography, give me a call and let's get planning!
Lake District and Cumbria based wedding photographer
Funnily enough, it was not my intention to be a Lake District wedding photographer at all. Originally from the flat lands of Norfolk, I moved up to Carlisle for university, where I studied photography and successfully completed my degree. All of my photography at the time was either a basis for my fine art paintings, or landscape photographs.
Moving to Cumbria gave me the chance to discover the county and nearby Lake District, plus Wales was only a short distance away, Scotland was even closer and Ireland wasn’t too far away either. As you can probably tell, it was all about the landscape. However, through university, I started photographing events and I began my street photography which then led into a small job with the BBC as a photojournalist.
It was only when a classmate of mine asked me to photograph his wedding day, that I even considered being a wedding photographer. It combined the fun of an event with the beauty of photojournalism and it required the use of light found in my landscape work. It seemingly ticked all of my boxes and my life as a wedding photographer was born.
Now several years in, I’m used to travelling all over the UK and sometimes further afield, capturing weddings and telling love stories through creative photography. I honestly love what I do and I hope you enjoy my work too.
