Lauren & Jake contacted me in April asking to photograph their Elopement at the gorgeous Hidden River Cabins. After previously planning a rather large wedding they decided that the wedding day was moving further and further away from what they wanted, and away from their relationship milestone of marriage. So instead, Lauren and Jake gathered their closest family, and doggos, to attend their small intimate wedding day at Hidden River Cabins.
I love documenting weddings at Hidden River Cabins and Barn as people can just make their day exactly what they want, they can also make it as big or as small as they like. I have photographed tiny elopements in the cabins, civil partnerships and big weddings in the Barn. No matter what there is something for your needs.
In a truly Cumbrian way, the weather was monsoon-like while all the prep was going on. however, with only a few moments left before the small ceremony, the rain stopped! So Lauren & Jake decided to get married just in the doorway with the cabin doors open to the elements. Which was amazing for me as I got to run around taking photos inside and out by walking around the cabin and walking through the door! Love venues where I can explore and just wander around. Afterwards, the rain started again but we said sod it and headed out for some portraits!
"We travelled a lot together and then Jake proposed in Langkawi, Malaysia in 2019. We booked a huge wedding which was meant to take place in May 2022, however we came to realise small and intimate was what we wanted, which led us to cancel our wedding.
We spent some time researching different venues all over the country, however it was difficult to find somewhere which allowed 11 guests and two dogs.
I came across hidden river after seeing it on Instagram, showed Jake and he loved it. It was everything we love, being outdoors and with our dog, and of course it fit our family. For us it was exactly what we wanted and it suited us perfectly. "
Have a look at the below slideshow and blog. If you're thinking about eloping or having a micro wedding at Hidden River Cabins, and you fancy contacting me about your elopement then please do as I would love to document your day!
