I first met Ian and Helen in June this year and although they had been engaged for a number of years, they had just made the decision to set a wedding date...and that date was soon! August 2nd to be exact. Between them, this lovely and hard working couple arranged their complete wedding in less than six week...wow!!!
The location they had chosen for their wedding was the Langdale Hotel and Spa, a stunning estate in Ambleside, Cumbria. The Lake Dirstict is a special location to the family and they frequently visit this area so when it came to choosing a venue, the choice was simple.
The wedding was to be a very intimate affair with just family and a few close friends attending.
As I woke up on the morning of the wedding, as I do for every wedding, one of the first thing I do is check the weather forecast; rain was expected between 1pm and 3pm...exactly the times of the service in the outdoor gazebo and when we planned outdoor shots in the beautiful grounds of the hotel. Despite the forecast, as I drove north, the weather cleared and gave way to a gorgeous summers day that stuck with us for the whole afternoon.
To Ian and Helen; Thank you for choosing me to photograph your special day, may you have a long and happy marriage.
Here are a few of my favourite images from the day.
I hope you enjoy. Please feel free to comment, like or share. CD.
