I’ve got another beautiful Lake District wedding to share with you and this one has it all – an amazing pastel colour scheme, shetland ponies, donuts instead of cake, two gorgeous brides and a dog in a tuxedo. Honestly, this is my job – pinch me!
Naomi and Sarah contacted me about their wedding photography quite close to the date itself. Happily, because they were holding a mid-week wedding I was still available and as soon as they started to tell me about their plans I was very excited by them. I absolutely love working with couples who know what they want and aren’t afraid to do something a little bit out of the ordinary.
Being massive animal lovers (past pets include a pygmy hedgehog) it was Heather Glenn’s four footed friends that sealed the deal for Sarah and Naomi. The resident Shetland Ponies made an appearance during the drinks reception. The hotel’s dog friendly policy also meant that the couples’ dog Bumble could make an appearance. Fitted out in a little tuxedo, she was absolutely the star of the show. I think I may have taken eleventy-billion pictures of her!
The amount of work put into the decor and styling was phenomenal! From the table plan on an old stained glass window, to the sweet trolley made by a family friend, to the absolutely adorable table names featuring Bumble. This couple thought of everything. It all came together in the reception room and it lovely to hear so many of the guests exclaiming with delight when they saw the table settings and favours.
To top it all off we were able to pinch Sarah and Naomi away for some gorgeous pictures during the day – making the most of the gardens at Heather Glenn and a lovely sunset.
Massive congrats to this lovely couple and Bumble of course! And thanks to the staff at Heather Glenn for looking after us and my second shooter Gemma from Gemma McAuley Photography who was my right hand lady for the day.
Here’s a selection of my favourite images from the day…
