Lake District & Broadoaks Wedding Photographer

Broadoaks Winter Wedding 2

Starting off 2019 as a Broadoaks Wedding Photographer was awesome of course with 2 Weddings within a week of each other, but what was also awesome was in Booking 6 Weddings that first week with 4 of them were also to be at Broadoaks !!!

For Jess & John’s Wedding I started off shooting Jess and her mini factory of Bridesmaids at a local house they’d rented in Windermere, before heading off to shoot a rather emotional John too at Broadoaks

Now of course all Wedding Ceremonies are emotional, sometimes the odd tear, sometimes many a tear, but this one had FLOODS of them!

3 readings all created tears, there were tears on entry and tears of joy – in fact it was such an emotional Ceremony even I had a tear !!!

Although it was another grey day, and with some drizzle, Jess & John were determined to get the photos they wanted outside and Hypothermia be damned! Once the Groups were done I actually sent them back inside to warm up as there’s nothing attractive about a cold-blue skinned Bride lol

Pre-planning for mud had Jess in wellies and we had a great session in the grounds, with only speeches and dancing to follow

A beautiful Wedding which allowed me to create some beautiful photos too – their album is going to be stunning 🙂

In a break from my ‘Facebook’ tradition of a max of just 42 photos I decided to post a whole lot more here, around 100 of them in fact, and while that may seem a lot as you scroll through its less than a 1/5th of what I delivered for them – so they will have OODLES of memories to look back over

Being a Lake District Wedding Photographer is the best job I can imagine 🙂

Broadoaks’ Winter Wedding

January 2019 kicked off with an early Wedding for me at, you guessed it, Broadoaks Country House Hotel. It was a grey, drizzley sort of a day and it never actually brightened up at all. For those photographers who may read this post, I didn’t shoot anything at less than ISO 1,000 and much of the day I was shooting at 4,000 ISO!

The grey weather may be ‘miserable’ but the Wedding spirits were definitely not, and a great time was had by all at Melanie & Richard’s Wedding 🙂

Unusual things I hear you ask? Well we had a Wedding Painter – no I’d never heard of that either; and we also finished the day not with a 1st Dance, but with a sparkler session

Before all that though the Bride & Groom had their Wedding Photos taken BEFORE their Ceremony, this was to use the light available as it’d have been too dark after their Ceremony

Anyway, enough of the text, let’s jump straight in to the photos…

Tankersley Manor Wedding Photography

As a Lake District & Yorkshire Wedding Photographer I’m called upon to travel far & wide to shoot my couples’ special day, and then sometime they are virtually on my doorstep!

One recent such Wedding was at Tankersley Manor on the 29th December where a good friend of my wife was to wed, and where I was both a Guest and their Tankersley Manor Wedding Photographer! Being a Guest meant of course that the wine & beer could flow freely my way, but being the photographer meant it couldn’t lol

The day began, as most do, with a nervous Bride getting ready with her Bridesmaids with lots of merriment, as well as the odd tipple

We were then joined by some of the cutest Flower Girls ever, 3 of whom were delighted to play up for my camera, while 1 definitely wasn’t !!! Can’t win them all I guess 😀

A short session shooting my Groom was on the cards too, in the Bar of course – where else! And back for the dress fastening

I knew these two were going to be emotional, but even I wasn’t expecting them BOTH bawling as the Bride walked down the aisle! More laughter ensued as the Groom fluffed his lines, and once married, we nipped out for some serene Group photos – NOT

To put it bluntly, it was blowing a bloody gale – hair, dresses and hats were billowing and at great risk of being lost; while the strong wind made an already cool day into a very cold one indeed

Our initial walkabout plan was instantly dropped in favour of an indoor spot I’d found, and I’m glad to say that several hours later the wind had calmed considerably enabling us to get outside after all – for a rather nice Sunset too

Immediately prior to the Cake Cutting & 1st Dance we again nipped outside for one of the most complicated lighting set-ups I’ve ever pulled off; then it was back indoors for a great 1st Dance setup that worked extremely well due to Tankersley Manor’s DJ & his lighting rig with illuminated flooring too

A great day was had by all 🙂

Langdale Chase Winter Wedding Photography

Langdale Chase is a superb venue for a Wedding at any time of the year, and I was delighted to be asked to shoot Natasha & Dan’s very short coverage Wedding just before New Year’s Eve 2018

Despite a late start with a Ceremony at 3:00 p.m. (and Sunset at 3:53 p.m. EEK) we still managed 19 sets of Group photos and a short Bride & Groom session in the grounds

Although I’ve now done over 100 Lake District Wedding Photography shoots I’ve never had one where we’ve chased the light as much as here! Its not often you get a sweat on rushing around in late December lol

Here’s just a taste of what we got up to and where you can see just how stunning a Lake District Wedding Venue Langdale Chase really is – but please, if you’d like me to shoot your Wedding here… please start a little earlier in the day 😀

Just for those interested in the photography side of this Wedding story, the outside ones were mostly shot with an Off Camera Flash (OCF) setup using an AD200 and remote trigger, and all were shot using a Beauty Dish with a sock on it too, this makes it more of a round ‘softbox’ than how a Beauty Dish is typically used

I’m a great fan of shooting some of my Lake District Wedding Photography shots of the Bride & Groom with this Off Camera Flash setup, its definitely my go-to equipment for this kind of job; and here it showed just how versatile it can be by also shooting up to 10 people and 2 dogs in a Group photo set too – truly awesome 🙂

Broadoaks Wedding Photography – Nov 2018 Slideshow Favs

Broadoaks Wedding Photography is great fun

as not only is the venue superb, the staff brilliant, but (so far!) its always attracted the more relaxed, happy and engaging kinds of couples who really value their Wedding Photography too; which is of course ideal for me as its my favourite dog friendly Lake District Wedding Venue – ok, so the ‘dog friendly’ bit is a bit of a bonus as its always fun, if a little challenging at times lol, to include a couple’s dog(s) into their Wedding Photography – but its true that along with this great venue comes couple who both want great photos to remember their special day by, but who are also prepared to set aside the time needed to really make the best of Broadoaks’ grounds, and even a trip down to lake Windermere too 🙂

Being Broadoaks’ Preferred Wedding Photography Supplier

means I get an invite to every Broadoaks Wedding Fayre and every one has been a delight to be a part of, not simply as they have averaged over 3 Bookings for me! But its just a great day to be chatting to excited couples planning their own Wedding adventure, as well as a chance to chat to my fellow Wedding Suppliers, building relationships and assisting each other where possible – it really is a community spirit

Anyway, the point of this blog is simply to showcase some of my Favourite Broadoaks Wedding Photography images from the past year or so, and specifically the ones that made the cut for my November 2018 Broadoaks Wedding Fayre Slideshow. Oh, and if your Wedding doesn’t feature here its NOT that it wasn’t good enough lol, its that I had to limit the number of photos I could use to both give a hint as to a few Wedding Stories but also show-off to others why they should pick Broadoaks – its not personal lol

2018 was a year where I was at my busiest and also slackest !!! As I had more Weddings to blog about then ever before but due to being both busy & slack I just didn’t get around to it – so my New Year’s Resolution here is to blog EVERYTHING – and also to blog my 2018 Weddings too as they come to their 1st Anniversaries – enough babble, let’s look at some photos for what makes Broadoaks such a great venue for Wedding Photography in the Lake District

The best Lake District Wedding Photographer

Broadoaks’ Weddings are great fun to shoot as Broadoaks is just the perfect place for a fun & relaxed Wedding
