Low Wood Bay Wedding Photography
I had a bit of a travel challenge for Laura and Rob’s Low Wood Bay wedding photography. Their wedding was on a Thursday on Windermere in the Lake District and on the day after, I was a guest/photographer at my friends Matt and Michelle’s wedding at Newton Hall in Northumberland, which is over 170 miles away from Windermere. It’s a good thing I don’t mind driving then.
Low Wood Bay is set on Windermere, about a mile away from one of my favourite places in the Lakes, Ambleside. When Baby T arrives later this month our foreign holidays are likely to turn into many more weekends in Ambleside so I was really looking forward to Laura and Rob’s day. It’s a stunning part of the UK to visit and shoot a wedding and I’m lucky in that I have a number of 2015 weddings booked in and around the lakes. Laura and Rob’s day was all at one venue so it was nice and relaxing knowing I could cover the bridal and groom preparation before their wedding service. With a 1.30pm service and the wedding breakfast at 3pm I had to move a little quicker than normal the couple shots on the jetty outside the hotel before a handful of formal family shots. With amazing views if Windermere in the background I’m pretty pleased with the couple shots, I certainly think we made the most of the location!
Unfortunately we missed out on one of the most spectacular sunsets I’ve ever seen in the UK. During the wedding breakfast the sun made it through the low cloud and delivered the type of sunset I could only dream of. I very nearly dragged Laura and Rob from their main course but I opted to head out and grab a few landscape shots instead. The guests were then entertained with a casino before the night reception and the first dance and I bid fairwell to Laura and Rob and along with Mrs T, we set off on our cross country road trip to Northumberland whilst Laura and Rob partied long into the night!
