Louiza and Andrew’s wedding at Armathwaite Hall – full of love and laughter
May is always a popular month for weddings, with the start of Spring, and Louiza and Andrew chose to celebrate their wedding at Armathwaite Hall, overlooking Bassenthwaite Lake in Cumbria. It is always a pleasure shooting a wedding at Armathwaite Hall – the grandeur of the building, the stunning location in the midst of the Lake District Fells and the friendly and helpful staff are all the right ingredients for a relaxed and beautiful wedding day. They chose a classic spring wedding theme of pink and white was reflected in the beautiful flowers from Floral Boutique, Cockermouth
Louiza was absolutely radiant and full of smiles all day, from getting ready with her friends and family right through to the evening celebrations. The wedding ceremony in the Lake Room, with beautiful views over Bassenthwaite, was personal, emotional and full of musical interludes by family and friends. The champagne then flowed as the wedding celebrations continued the in the Lime Trees Suite, and when the weather brightened up outside on the lawns. Louiza and Andrew’s smiles and laughter were infectious, with all the guests relaxing and enjoying this special wedding. It was a pleasure to take Louiza and Andrew off for some couple shots, and they were so relaxed as we strolled around the lawns of Armathwaite Hall, enjoying the spectacular views of Skiddaw and the Lake.
After the wedding breakfast and speeches, we headed outside again to make the most of the evening light for some more couple shots as the sun set over Armathwaite. I just couldn’t help myself! I am always striving at weddings to do something new and different, and even though I have photographed a number of weddings at Armathwaite Hall, there is always a new angle to get and new opportunities. I always carry a spare change of clothes and shoes at a wedding, just in case I get muddy or dirty – and this wedding was the first time I have ever had to change my trousers, shirt and shoes – as lying flat on the grass in the field to get the perfect shot, ended up a little messy! It was worth it though!
The wedding celebrations continued into the evening with a hog roast laid on by Armathwaite Hall and great live music from Highly Strung.
