The wedding of Scott & Lynn at The Belsfield, Bowness on Windermere.

Some days are a little more than you expect and shooting at a venue for the first time is more than enough to get me out of bed at some ungodly hour. Scott and Lynn were looking for someone to photograph their wedding at the Belsfield in Windermere and I went down to meet up with them in Ambleside to talk through the arrangements. I knew that they wanted something different and like most of my brides and grooms, got me in to take the photographs because of that. Lynn is stunning…. Thats it really, she photographed every bit as well as I expected and some of the images with her were some of my favorites of this summers season. All of the guests were from the North East and after living there for 7 years I well and truly had my geordie accent back the next day. What a great bunch of people.

The sun shone all day really and after a few clouds after coming out of St. Martins Church the sky was nice and patchy (weather with options) which is just how I like it.

On with the photographs.

I like weddings that are all about the details and this was no exception. Lynn got ready at the Belsfield in a beautiful Lake View room.

Just a quick warning: This wedding is image intensive. I do this so that people get the best idea of how I photograph and approach a wedding but also to show the consistency of a body of work across a wedding day.

Polaroid, black and white film wedding photographers in the Lake District
I am getting slightly obsessed with polaroid, especially in the lakes.
Wedding details from the belsfields wedding photographer.
I love details like this on a wedding day. They really help to tell the story of the day. In the lakes it is easy to lose sight of this in among the search for an epic shot that may never present itself.

I love this set. It really tells of the excitement of the wedding day.

I loved the lanterns in St Martins. They really gave a nice glow to the aisle.

People always take photographs of brides arriving at St Martins, Its like part of the wedding day itself.

What a great spot for formal images. The light in this church is excellent.

The recipe on this image really gives it a faded summery look. Sorry folks, my recipes aren’t on instagram.
Vintage film wedding photographers in the lake District.
Can I squeeze one more in? Love this image of Lynn, with autumnal faded colour. Very vintage.
groups of people in a reportage style around the hotel in the lakes
Lots of guests milling around. I like to use this time to catch people smiling and chatting.
something a bit funkier than most wedding photographers.
Love this image. The only time really when the light was flat enough to take it.

After a little recce I found a really nice view of the hotel and this was the result.
just a quick shot before dinner in the lakes.
Just came outside and when walking over the grass spotted this.

8.5 for this speech. Just for the gangsta lingo that was used… respect…

On the lawn at the back of the hotel. The sunset was fabulous.
bridal silouette in the lakes
Love, Love this. The sun was so weak by this point I knew that the detail in the sky would be retained.

The vintage lift at the Belsfield made a fitting backdrop.
beautiful dance images from a wedding in the lakes.
Some of my favourite first dance images are taken in mono. Everyone danced. Even me a bit!

Thanks again both for choosing me to take your photographs. I had a wail and got to know a hotel that I had never been to before. There are so many images I love from your wedding so get picking!
