Armathwaite Hall wedding photography from Gaz and Leanne’s winter wedding in the Lake District. A Christmas time wedding with mulled wine, christmas tree’s and a moonlight stroll to the lake.
Gaz and Leanne had their wedding day at the rather stunning Armathwaite Hall in the lake district, nestled on the bank of Bassenthwaite lake. A stunning Lake district wedding venue with log fires and as it was just before christmas lots of beautiful christmas tree’s and decorations.
In December I headed up to just outside of Keswick to do the wedding photography at Leanne and Gaz’s wedding at Armathwaite Hall in Lake District. I had stayed in Keswick the night before and although the sun was out as I drove up the side of Bassenthwaite Lake towards the venue there was still a bit of mist onto of the fells. As a Lake District wedding photographer I get to visit lots of pretty venues but this was my first time at Armathwaite Hall and I was definitely looking forward to it.
Armathwaite Hall Hotel & Spa is set on the shores of the breathtaking Bassenthwaite Lake and is the perfect setting for a Lake District wedding. The former stately home has beautiful grounds and sweeping views towards the lake, a perfect setting for your wedding photographs.
I joined Leanne and her bridesmaids who were excitedly getting ready and then popped down the hall to see they boys. After some photographs on the roof of the tower it was time to go and get married. A lovely ceremony followed after which guests enjoyed drinking some mulled wine by the log fires and christmas trees as after all it was nearly christmas!
After a few family photographs we had a wander around the grounds with the couple to get their wedding portraits. The plan was to head down to the Lake after their meal which we did. It was going dark but they still wanted to head down to the lake so a bit of night time trekking through the woods in your wellies was in order which the pair were more than happy to do. The moon was out and it was quite a romantic setting on the lake shore at twilight.
Once we were back at the hotel the couple got their friends and family outside to have some fun with some sparklers for a sparkler send off. Friends had also baked some cakes for a great british bake off style competition which was a nice touch.
The couple had styled their winter wedding beautifully with lots of attention to detail. It was a perfect christmas wedding and I am so glad they picked me to do their wedding photography as it was a lovely day.
