Broadoaks Country House Wedding Photographer

I knew both Laura and Rich long before I became a wedding photographer so I it was with great honour that they asked me to be their Broadoaks Country House wedding photographer. This was my second visit to Broadoaks Country House after I shot Rachel and Scott’s wedding there in September 2015. Broadoaks Country House is a beautiful venue close to Lake Windermere in the Lake District. I really enjoy shooting weddings there, the team are fantastic to work with and the hotel is set in its own beautiful grounds. I arrived nice and early to meet up with Laura for her bridal preparation. I was told Laura’s father was a tough Yorkshire man who keeps his emotions in check, but the sight of his daughter in her wedding dress was a little too much and I think I may well have spotted a tear or two!

Laura and Rich were married at Broadoaks in an emotional wedding service (mainly from Rich I must add). It was a wonderful marriage service and it was obvious to see how much Laura and Rich are in love. Once their guests had showered them in confetti we made the the short journey down to Lake Windermere for their couple photos on a jetty out on the lake. With dramatic skies (and a little wind) Laura and Rich braved the weather to get some beautiful couple photos as Laura showed off her stunning Charlotte Balbier wedding dress.


We returned to Broadoaks Country House for the wedding breakfast and speeches before Laura and Rich braved the fine rain for their ‘wow’ photo (which you can see above). Sparklers then guided the way back inside Broadoaks Country House for their first dance. Laura is something of an Instagram sensation, at the time of writing she has 45000 followers on Instragram as she is a Slimming World sensation. Laura’s story is inspirational as she lost over 5 stone for her wedding. With such a huge audience I made sure that Laura had a series of photos to post the day after the wedding and it’s safe to say the images went down well. I’ve never seen so many likes on one of my images!

So here’s my day as Laura and Rich’s Broadoaks Country House wedding photographer. Music by COLLEAGUES, photos by me…
