Man this was a great day, a day of everyone smiling as two groups of family and friends got together to celebrate. Starting at Rachael’s mums house in Near Sawrey meant prep was a bit of a drive away from the Wild Boar, due to the Windermere Ferry being grounded. In the short time that I was there I managed to catch some great images of everyone getting ready. I love the challenge of being invisible in a small space with everyone around getting on with hair and makeup etc.

After a dash round the lake I headed to the Boar where most guests had gathered and Russ was already waiting in the bar. I even had a chance to photograph some of the amazing interiors there too. I have always loved this place.

After the ceremony we had the chance for some group images at the huge oak tree and then headed up to the tarn. Its great heading up there in the Defender and you always get a chance to get some really unique images at a place less photographed than most Lake District wedding venues.

Another great idea from the bride and groom was to include local relish company Hawkshead Relish as their favours. Suppliers or Russ’s beloved Black Garlic Ketchup. The table layout by the wedding coordinators, linked with the yellow and sunflowers theme was amazing too.

Congratulations both and enjoy your honeymoon 🙂
