Gina and Hippo’s wedding at the Inn on the Lake.. Don’t forget the socks!
A Lake District Wedding at Inn ON The Lake, Glenridding.
Difficult to find the words to describe this day. Since our first meeting at Rheged I just knew that this day would be different from any other wedding that I have shot at the Inn On The Lake. Gina and Hippo are very outdoorsy and Hippo is capable of going in the wild with the best of them. It was the essential shots of the day list that got me nodding in agreement including the superhero socks shot. Gina’s nephew also had me tickled with laughter all day, while taking pictures from the back of the gazebo and feeling the cold plastic of a nerf gun being jabbed into the baclk of my knee. Or being in a state of undress more than once.
There was also the group shots that took a wee while to complete due to the chaos, people going to the loo and generally vanishing from where I thought they were. I did the usual and just kept shooting through it all, which although made it quite peppered, also made it a bit less of a lineup.
Quite fitting that for their ‘shoot with a view’ after the wedding, that we headed up to Caldbeck, messed around at some quarries and also visited my favourite tree near the Ireby junction. Its one of my favourite places and the weather was amazing.
So, for two people who are always up for a laugh, surrounded by their amazing friends and family. Most of the day had me (and everyone else) smiling from ear to ear. The Inn came up trumps again too making everything run incredibly well. I do miss George though.
