On July 19th 2014 the wedding of Andrew and Lauren Carson took place at The Inn on the Lake, Glennridding on the shores of Ulswater in the lake district. I was chosen by them to be their photographer on this very special day, I felt very honoured to have this opportunity to capture the events of their wedding day for them, in such luxurious surroundings. A beautiful hotel with acres of grounds leading to the waters edge where there are 3 jetties, a gazebo and views of the mountains. WOW !!
Andrew and Lauren are such a lovely couple, and their cute little daughter Holly is full of character. They made us very welcome and so did their families and guests it was a pleasure to work with them. The weather was a little unkind, very heavy rain showers in the morning then we had a drier period after lunch which coincided with the timing of the ceremony and provided the opportunity to capture the photographs of the family groups and confetti shots in the grounds.
Andrew,Lauren and I proceeded down to one of the jetties where we were able to get some lovely intimate photographs on the jetty with the lake and mountains behind them.
This was followed with photographs taken in and around the gazebo creating a lovely backdrop, with stunning views.
The room where the wedding breakfast was to be held was beautifully prepared and the guests enjoyed a lovely meal followed by the speeches which were very moving and entertaining.
The evening reception was held in the Ramblers Bar, adjoining the hotel. Here the family and guests let their hair down and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. As a build up to the first dance I suggested that we have a blowing bubbles competition, whereby a number of guests formed a circle around Andrew and Lauren on the dance floor then on my instruction they blast them with bubbles as much as they could. Then I took a series of photographs of the couple surrounded by bubbles which created a really fun atmosphere and some good fun photographs too. This was followed by the first dance for Andrew and Lauren, where I was able to get some lovely intimate photographs of them before the dance floor filled up with family and guests dancing the night away.
This really was a beautiful wedding with lovely friendly people which created a wide range of photographing opportunities for us to capture, and I’m sure that Andrew an Lauren will enjoy looking back at their very special day through their photographs.
We certainly enjoyed being a part of it with them. Thank you !! Bryan and Tracey xx
