Gilpin Lake House Wedding Photography
I love new venues and so I was very excited about shooting Amy and Mike’s Gilpin Lake house wedding photography. The Gilpin Lake House is set in the Lake District, a few miles from the shore of Lake Windermere. It’s well hidden, as I wound my way down the long, single track road I wondered if I’d missed my turning. What a stunning wedding venue The Gilpin Lake House is. A beautifully styled house set alongside Knipe Tarn, this is one of the jewels in the Lake District crown. To add to the day, the weather was at its very best too, perfect for Amy and Mike’s wedding.
The preparations and wedding service took place at The Gilpin Lake House. Once married, Amy and Mike led the guests down into the garden for drinks and canapes. The group photos were quickly completed and the guests enjoyed the sun and champagne in the stunning surroundings of The Gilpin Lake House. The wedding breakfast and speeches took place in a marquee. I was fortunate enough to sample the food at The Gilpin and it is top class. Everything about the Gilpin is superb. The staff were friendly and helpful all day long and it was great to meet the owners Zoe and Barney who were wonderfully welcoming.
It was a pleasure to work alongside the team from YSD Media on Amy and Mike’s Gilpin Lake House wedding. YSD Media are fantastic film makers who make stunning wedding films. YSD Media have a unique style using a lot of movement in their films and it was great to work alongside Reiss all day. I’d worked withe Reiss when I shot Stefan and Elkie’s wedding last year (incidentally the owners of YSD Media). It was really interesting to watch him shooting and I cannot wait to see the film when it is edited.
The forecast was for a beautiful sunset and the weather did not disappoint. Amy and Mike’s couple photos took place in the golden hour with some amazing light. There were so many beautiful options for photos on the lawn, in the gardens and on the jetty into the Lake. With the couple photos complete, the first dance kicked off the evening reception and Amy and Mike partied long into the night. I love shooting Amy and Mikes Gilpin Lake House wedding photography.
