I so enjoyed meeting Emily & Dave for the first time at our Beloved shoot, they are just the loveliest couple, so perfect together and I just knew that their wedding would have the same energy, warmth, humour and laughter - I really couldn't wait for their day at Lake Windermere's Langdale Chase Hotel.
I had traveled up the night before and spent the morning doing a reccy of the locations and truly the day began with stunning weather and the hotel, the grounds and the lake looked absolutely beautiful - however the weather gods were teasing as after the ceremony rain fell and although the guests didn't get to experience the full scenic glory (myself and the couple did venture out for some images in the grounds, special thanks to Emily's bridesmaid who was on Umbrella Duty - so grateful for your help Sophie!) - it really didn't stop this being one of the happiest weddings I've photographed.
Just a little mention about the wedding favours, Dave made each guest a wishing spoon and he made one for me - I was so touched. See, I told you, just the loveliest couple ever!
