Broadoaks Country House wedding photography

Broadoaks Country house wedding photography with Leanne and Will.

It was a  three hour drive up the M6 to Leanne and Will’s wedding in the lakes, eventually I arrived at Broadoaks Country House in Troutbeck.  Will was looking very relaxed enjoying the goodf weather when I arrived. I then headed up to photograph Leanne getting ready.

The wedding ceremony at Broadoaks Country House took place outside in the beautiful gardens, with a distant view across the Troutbeck hills. Lake Windermere glistened far below in the sunshine. This truly was an amazing location for a wedding.  I’m finding outdoor ceremonies are gaining in popularity, everything seems that little bit more relaxed outdoors and even more so when the weather cooperates.

A game of rounders followed the ceremony with almost all of the guests joining in with a game of the ladies versus the men. It’s not every week I see the bride playing rounders in her dress, but it certainly made for some fun photographs.

Everyone had worked up a good appetite for dinner served in the dining room. As I don’t take many photographs of people eating so I used this as an excuse to walk up to a scenic point I’d seen in the car on the way in, to photograph Lake Windermere. I’d slightly underestimated how far it was to walk and the short cut on the way back wasn’t such a good idea in my wedding shoes, but it was worth it for the photographs. I arrived back at Broadoaks Country House in plenty of time to photograph the speeches and the first dance.

Broadoaks Country House is a really lovely location for smaller intimate weddings, it is very much the perfect venue for wedding photographers during the summer months.  The rooms are all beautifully decorated and have interesting features, it is really the natural beauty of the surrounding area that make this a real jewel of a venue.  Leanne and Will had exclusive use of the hotel along with all the rooms. Weddings where everything is in one place are always more relaxing and here your guests can stay the night as well.  The Lake District is a fair drive from me, but I’m always happy to hear from couples getting married in the Lakes.
