Lake District Elopement Photographer

By 23/02/2023No Comments

How exciting when you get asked to be a Lake District elopement photographer! Shona & Luke planned their wedding day around a trip to their favourite place: Lake Windermere. I was delighted that they chose me to capture these colourful wedding photographs for them in such a beautiful location.

Smaller weddings have remained a trend since the pandemic, even now guest numbers are thankfully back to normal. Shona & Luke chose an intimate wedding ceremony at Sale Town Hall, which is my local wedding venue and one that I’m very familiar with.

There’s something really special about keeping things low key and heading to your local registry office with a few close family and friends. Even better when you follow your wedding ceremony with a portrait shoot just the two of you, capturing precious time together as freshly married…

Black Wedding Dress

I was mega excited when Shona told me she would be wearing a black wedding dress! I’ve been waiting a while for one of my brides to choose black and Shona looked stunning! I also loved her Irregular Choice ghost shoes. Just take a look at the wedding photographs below to see how amazing they are – boo!

I’m so here for couples ditching tradition and wearing what they like on their wedding day. Black went perfectly with Shona and Luke’s alternative style and contrasted so well with the gorgeous Lake District scenery.

Speak of which, how amazing is the location Shona & Luke chose for their wedding portraits? It was simply beautiful and I had such a blast shooting these two’s wedding photographs at Lake Windermere. I think my favourite images are the ones at the end near the shore, but it’s hard to choose!
