Lake District Wedding Photographers
We’re so lucky that within a short drive from our homes, we can be surrounded by some of the most epic scenery in the whole country as Lake District wedding photographers, working at some of the most incredible Lake District wedding venues.
Lake District wedding photography
From the peaceful banks of Lake Windermere to the picturesque villages and rolling countryside views, Lake District photography locations are around every corner of every winding road. It’s easy to see why the area is so popular with visitors and why so many people plan Lake District weddings every year.
We love beautiful intimate lake district wedding venues and the huge, luxury estates suitable for celebrations on a grand scale. There’s something to suit every style here, whether you are looking for something rustic and natural for a whimsical woodland vibe, or a decadent and exclusive setting to wow your guests. The wilder areas of Buttermere and Wast Water offer some added drama for active and outdoorsy couples, ready to pull on their walking or climbing boots for a post-wedding adventure.
Why we love Lake District weddings
For us, it’s all about capturing your story and your choice of venue is often a big part of that. We love the variety of Lake District weddings, and even returning to the same venue, things look different in every season of the year.
We photograph weddings across the whole of the UK and regularly travel abroad too, so it’s amazing to have these world-class venues right on our doorstep. Feel free to check out some of our other work, including waterside weddings at Crear, Scotland documentary wedding photography, and some award-winning photos we’re super proud of.

Hidden River Barn
The Hidden River Barn in Carlisle, Cumbria offers an unusual wedding venue with a magical vibe. The newly built barn has a mixture of natural wood panelling and industrial-feeling steel features, including huge windows that flood the venue with gorgeous light. You can get married overlooking the ancient woodland, next to the river Lyne and have your entire wedding day here. You can also hire the Hidden River Cabins as guest accommodation, so the celebrations can extend over multiple days.
The mezzanine level offers additional space and flexibility, as well as an awesome opportunity for including cascading floral décor. There’s even a cosy log fire to enjoy in the cooler months, making the whole venue feel like home. The warmth of this place is perfectly suited to our relaxed style, and our passion for capturing real emotion as well as the beauty of your venue.
On the banks of Lake Windermere, Storrs Hall is an elegant venue for luxury weddings. Offering exclusive use of the Georgian house, grounds, and even a boat from the private jetty, Storrs Hall provides full-on star treatment for you and your guests.
A range of luxurious function rooms and outdoor spaces are available to hold your ceremony, and their expert team will be on hand to make your vision a reality.

Recognised as Wedding Venue of the Year 2022 by Cumbria Tourism, Askham Hall near Penrith offers luxury weddings and Michelin-starred dining in the 16th-century manor house, and countryside weddings at Bank Barn set within the grounds.
