Don’t Do This…

Helen & Andy, Langdale Chase

I once overheard a wedding guest say, “You can feel your blood pressure drop when you come up here.” At the time we were on a boat on Coniston Water, but whichever lake you choose, it’s got to be a good way to spend the afternoon or evening.

So, after a ceremony and meal at the Langdale Chase on Windermere, Helen & Andy took their guests out on ‘Silverholme’ for an hour or so.

Anna-Kate tunes up before the ceremony

Don’t drop the camera, Don’t drop the camera, Don’t drop the camera…

It’s like waiting for a bus…only nicer. And how many buses have bars on board?

It’s no use, she asked for Guinness

Off to the bar…probably

Anita & Dan, Cartmel Priory & Racecourse

USA-based Anita & Dan were married in the States in August, but came over to Dan’s parents’ home in Cartmel for a blessing a couple of weeks afterwards. It was effectively a wedding without the ‘I now pronounce you husband and wife’ bit. Because they already were.

The weather looked ominous, so we did some shots in the grand setting of the Priory before the ceremony took place

And their carriage to take them to the reception…

Liz & Paul, The Hydro, Windermere

On the day when the Great North Swim came to Windermere, it was lucky to be able to walk to work, about a quarter mile down the road at the Hydro hotel. Even luckier was the weather – a proper scorcher, in September.

Liz & Paul chose some instantly recogniseable music for the ceremony which raised a chuckle or two.

Confetti…gets everywhere

Not a bad backdrop, just a short walk (or drive) up the hill behind the hotel.

The biggest photo library

OK, it’s an advert for Kodak but I like the sentiment.

Karen & Simon, Beech Hill, Windermere

Normally when someone asks if I’m available in August, they mean next August. Not Karen & Simon. They meant ‘in three weeks time’. And why not?

It was a Monday and thankfully I was free because it was  a lot of fun.

Cute kids, a good start…

Forget ‘Bownessie’, this is photographic proof that August wasn’t a washout.

…which made the trip on the lake even better.

Although you do get chased by random strangers 🙂
