Kelly & David – Askham Hall- Carlisle
Kelly & David’s wedding at Askham Hall was just a little bit more than a hoot! David, originally from the Liverpool area (and also an Everton fan) moved all the way out to New York for work and other various reasons. He worked in film and productions creating some amazing artworks when a work friend and now long term friend introduced him to Kelly. After years and years of friendship, they finally decided that they made the best team ever. Who better to marry than your best friend right?! right!
This wedding wasn’t like most. American Cultures mixed with English Traditions mixed with no tradition at all. To top it all off, no wedding dress! I loved it! It was just so… pure yet bonkers, yet wonderful and full of life. We were treated to David trying to convince all the Americans that morris dancing was a wedding tradition that we all take seriously. It was sublime. Honestly, Incredible. followed by a rendition of Madness’ Night Boat to Cairo in full costume!
The speeches also blew my stripey socks off! We were treated to props like Christmas trees? coffee and I can’t even remember what sandwiches?! but on a more serious note we learned about the Ukrainian traditions of the “Rushnyk” In a beautifully emotive speech and a young nephew was given the gift of a car! Generosity knows no bounds with this bunch of amazing people!
I have been a Cumbria wedding photographer for a little while now but it believe it or not until Kelly and David’s day I hadn’t photographed an Askham Hall wedding! What a stunning venue! It oozes character and is beautifully placed near the lakes.
But that’s enough of me! Have a look at the photos below and enjoy!
