I absolutely loved photographing Cherry and Johnathan’s wedding! This brilliant pair from Leeds, had chosen the stunning Askham Hall as their wedding venue, close to Lake Ullswater and surrounded by their closest friends and family.
Opened in 2014, the hotel and wedding venue has quickly established itself as one of the most popular venues in the Lakes. Originally a defensive Pele Tower, Askham Hall is steeped in history and makes for a very atmospheric wedding venue. Cherry and Johnathan booked the whole hotel for their wedding, so I was very much spoilt for wedding photograph locations.
Bank barn is licensed for ceremonies and has been sympathetically converted to cater for up to 150 guests. It was here Cherry and Johnathan had the most beautiful, intimate ceremony, by celebrant Veronika Robinson.
Partying into the evening
Cherry and Johnathan chose the fabulous husband and wife duo ‘All Star Disco’ for their evening entertainment. No one left the dance floor for the rest of the evening!
A November wedding
If you’re lucky like Cherry and Johnathan to get a stunning winter’s day for your wedding, the light late afternoon in Askham Hall garden is a photographers dream, as soft sun beams broke through the trees onto the beautiful lawn.
Huge thank you to Lauren at Askham Hall and all the staff that were just wonderful and looked after me throughout the day.
