A Beautiful Wedding in the Woods

Helen and Kevin had a truly magical wedding at the stunning Melmerby Hall near Penrith. The ceremony was held under the trees in front of the house and the whole day was so happy and fun it was a real pleasure to be a part of and didn’t feel at all like a day of work! It was my first time at the venue and I am looking forward to being back again soon. Enjoy the images and thank you Helen and Kevin for being awesome!

Blencowe Wedding Photography – Jenn & Paul

When Jenn and Paul first got in touch about their upcoming wedding/Paul’s birthday party at Blencowe Hall near Greystoke in Cumbria, I was so excited! The amazing house is one of my favourite venues with its massive rooms, turreted tops and stunning views, it is like a luxury home from home. The couples plan for the day sounded so much fun and really relaxed (a bouncy castle covered in confetti – yes please!). So it seemed like a good fit for my style. The wedding ceremony was held nearby at St James Church in Hutton-in-the-Forrest, one of the tiniest churches that I have ever shot in. The church was full and there was lots of emotions as Jenn and Paul became husband and wife after 9 years together.

Blencowe Hall was the perfect spot for the wedding reception, the marquee was decorated with lots of fresh flowers, bunting and touches of gorgeous green. I love the cake made by a super talented bridesmaid with a surprise rainbow filling! Not being big dancers, Jenn and Paul shunned the first dance and had a first bounce on the bouncy castle as husband and wife instead! I absolutely loved this wedding, such a great venue and a fab couple it was so hard to leave I felt very welcomed and wanted to stay all night long. Best of luck in the future you two, here are the best bits!

Cumbria Wedding Photography – Helen & Darren

There are some weddings that stay with you for ages after the day is over and Helen and Darren’s wedding was definitely one of those! The lovely couple hired the magnificent Blencowe Hall in the Lake District for a weekend of wedding celebrations, and with all their guests staying at the Hall and adjacent cottages, the atmosphere was buzzing from when I first arrived on Saturday morning until late into the evening party complete with casino, paella and dancing the night away! I loved the relaxed atmosphere of the day, especially the trip to the local pub for lunch in a vintage red double decker bus.

It was such a special day and it is so obvious that these two are meant for each other, just putting together this blog post has brought back lots of memories and made me smile! I feel so lucky to have been a small part of their wedding and I hope you all enjoy the selection of photos, the full set can be found on the portfolio website.
