New House Farm Wedding Photography – Rebecca and Dave

I’ve had couples bring their dogs along to their wedding before, but Rebecca and Dave’s wedding in the Lake District was the first time I have seen the dog tasked with videography too. Ted had his own little GoPro attached to provide a unique perspective on the day. Thankfully the lovely Lee & Dawn from Shutterbox were unfazed by their canine competitor.

Rebecca and her army of bridesmaids got ready at New House Farm before heading to the other side of Bassenthwaite Lake for the ceremony at St Bega’s Church in a fleet of vintage vehicles. As you can see below St Bega’s is in a unique location with some amazing views. After the ceremony there was time for a few family groups to make the most of the views, then everyone headed back to New House Farm. Note for prospective couples reading this – if your ceremony venue requests that you don’t throw confetti in the grounds, and you decide to opt for birdseed instead, bear in mind that birdseed is quite hard, and small enough to get EVERYWHERE. Carry on…

Back at the barn we were greeted by some amazing floral table centres and Dave’s handy work with a few thousand fairy lights, and after the meal we had speeches with the final toast done with Jaegerbombs! Then there was time for physical exertion with a game of rounders in the rain and a human pyramid on the dance floor. Not my first, as regular readers will know.

Alice and Al – Wedding photography in Dunnerdale, Cumbria

Alice’s family home in the Duddon Valley in the Lake District was the incredible setting for her marriage to Al. Both musicians themselves, and Al with his own record label, they called on lots of friends and family to fill the day with music.

So we had organ and cello solos in the church, a Gypsy Jazz band during the reception and part of the evening, then a classic wedding band made up of guests, with performances from the bride, the groom and even the bride’s father.

Caroline & George – Wedding Photography at Winder Hall, Cockermouth, Cumbria

Caroline & George returned home to the Lake District for their wedding at St Cuthbert’s Church in Lorton, near Cockermouth. Then it was a short hop across the field to Winder Hall for the reception.

The weather was quite normal for this summer: cloudy, muggy and with the odd shower of rain. A shower prevented Caroline from walking across the field to the church and so instead she arrived in a pick-up with a couple of dogs in the back. However, the weather lifted long enough for the newly-married couple to head back across the field with their guests in tow before the heavens opened again.

A great day filled with fairy wings, morris dancing, hay bales and the most energetic dancefloor full of guests I have seen in a long time.
