Briery Wood Country House Hotel is a sister hotel to the amazing Merewood Country House Hotel & The Cragwood Country House Hotel. All of them are a stone's throw from the shores of Lake Windermere in the heart of The Lake District. While I had worked many times at Merewood and Cragwood, it was the first time for me to photograph an elopement at Briery Wood country house and I utterly fell in love with the place and its ability for outdoor ceremonies.
Linzi & Mike contacted me a little while ago about photographing their elopement at Briery wood country house hotel. Linzi's sons, Jacob & Oscar were also present and a huge part of the day celebrating and adventuring around The Lakes with Mike, Linzi & me.
After the outdoor ceremony, we headed out to the western shores of Lake Windermere for a small adventure. making our way to the ferry landing area and up the hill to the amazing Claife Viewing Station, which I had never been to before, what a hidden gem of The Lakes that is!
They met while Linzi was working in a cafe and mike would come in every day for a coffee, after a while they became friends before realising they actually couldn't manage without each other and so they became the amazing duo that they are. I think you agree from looking at the below photos that they are utterly incredible and clearly deeply in love with each other.
Have a look at the below slideshow and blog. If you're thinking about eloping, and you fancy contacting me about your elopement then please do as I would love to document your day!
