What a fabulous Lake District wedding to share with you this week! I’ve always loved the Lakes, visiting it whenever possible & even wild camping there once or twice (hot water & toilet facilities are for wimps). I was thrilled when Ben & Sarah asked me to photograph their Storrs Hall wedding on Windermere. A really beautiful setting for a spring wedding! Read on & please enjoy this small set of Storrs Hall wedding photography.
Sarah prepared for her marriage to Ben at Storrs Hall. The bridal suite was full of happy chaos as Sarah, her Mum & bridesmaids got ready for the day. Then it was off to St Mary’s Church in Windermere for the ceremony. Sarah arrived at church in a vintage car with a special history; her Granddad owned the car many years ago but sold it due to sad personal reasons. Ben & Sarah tracked down the car all these years later & managed to secure it for their wedding day. Suffice to say, when our bride collected her Granddad in the car just before going to the church, it was a very emotional moment. I made sure to capture a quick portrait of him with the car later on. As a photographer mainly focusing on documentary coverage, a staged portrait isn’t something I wouldn’t normally do but I felt it appropriate on this occasion. It ended up being one of my favourite shots ever!
After a lovely church service, it was back to Storrs Hall to start the proper celebrations.
Following a fantastic meal with some very funny speeches (seeing the Groom naked on top of a car will haunt me for a long time), Ben & Sarah organised a boat cruise out on Lake Windermere. We were treated to a fabulous sunset & great views across the lake before heading back to continue the Storrs Hall wedding. A great day & a bouncing dancefloor to finish the evening!
I received this wonderful feedback from Sarah & Ben:
“My husband and I cannot recommend Andy highly enough. He was so knowledgeable, passionate, and professional both in the lead up to and during the wedding and overall just a great guy to be around. His pictures speak for themselves and are truly amazing. He knew exactly what we wanted from the day and we know that he will have captured that and more when we receive all of the finalised shots! Anyone looking for a top notch professional photographer, BOOK HIM!! You will not regret it! Thanks again Andy!”
This is what makes it all worthwhile! I really hope you enjoy flicking through this small selection of images from a Storrs Hall wedding. Please get in touch if you would like to enquire about your own special day.
