Askham Hall Wedding Photography – Alex & Rob

Lake District Wedding Photographer_0047

It was my 1st time shooting a wedding at Askham Hall in Penrith & this venue really is a Wedding Photography dream.  I love spending time the Lake District & in fact I was married myself in Windermere in 2005 & I always enjoy going back to the area.

This wedding was always going to be pretty special, I could tell from the 1st time I met Alex & Rob & heard all about the day they had planned. Askham Hall is a spectacular wedding venue & although my style of wedding photography is generally centred around the people & the emotions on the day, I can’t lie to you, shooting weddings at Askham Hall makes life a whole lot easier for the wedding photographer.  I had met Alex & Rob a few times before & we had shot their romantic engagement session in The Lakes a few months prior. These sessions are always a good idea when preparing for your wedding day as they help you get used to showing affection to each other in public. On the wedding day, we generally only have 15/20 minutes for portraits, so having an engagement session definitely helps you look more natural on your wedding day photo’s & hopefully takes away all the nerves.

When I arrived at the Hall on the morning of the wedding, I remember saying “wow” quite a few times on my way up to meet Alex & the girls.  I managed to spend some time with Alex, her super lovely bridesmaids & brilliant Mum before heading upstairs to say “Hello” to Rob, the boys & grandad & to take a few shots of them all getting suited & booted. Then we all headed down the lane to St Peters Church for the ceremony which was full of laughter & joy. Alex & Rob left in style on their fairytale horse drawn carriage & I managed to hitch a lift back with them sat up top with the driver. I can honestly say it was one of the scariest 20 minutes of my life!

The guests headed back up the hill & through the gardens into Askham Hall for the rest of the celebrations. Alex & Rob’s wedding is one of the most relaxed wedding I’ve shot at all year & this made it an absolute pleasure to be part of.  After dinner & some great speeches in the stunning barn, we headed out to make the most of the light with some portrait photos in the gardens of the Hall.

Askham Hall such a beautiful wedding venue in the Lake District & I hope to shoot there again soon. For further information on Alex & Rob’s suppliers, please see the end of the post.  Here are a few of my favourite images from their wedding at Askham Hall, Penrith. Enjoy ♡
