It was fantastic to meet up with one of my wedding couples recently in the Lake District for their pre-wedding photo shoot.

Nick and Louise had travelled up from Surrey, to finalise their wedding plans at Hause Hall, located close to Lake Ulswater and tucked away in a beautiful secluded valley.  It was also the perfect opportunity to catch up with them and to hear how their wedding preparations were going.

Photography Guidance

We met at Granny Dowbekin’s cafe in Pooley Bridge for a coffee and to chat about their plans. It’s always a great opportunity, when catching up with my couples before their wedding, to see how everything is going and to listen to their photography needs. I love hearing about their schedule for the big day and to see if I can pre-empt some special moments, that would be great to capture on camera.

Pre-wedding Engagement Shoot

It’s also good to chat about my style, explain how I work and discuss some exciting photography ideas for their day; before we hit the road for their pre-wedding engagement shoot.

Hause Hall sits in a beautiful quiet location close to Howtown, Ullswater and there is only one road that takes you to the venue, along the lake shore.  We stopped off at one of lake’s jetty’s, for some lovely shots – with the Ullswater steamer kindly ‘photo-bombing’ in the background! Before heading to St Peter’s Church and the surrounding hills for more photo opportunities. A short walk from the church is Hause Hall.

Hause Hall – Wedding Venue

Nick and Louise will be the first couple to get married at this stunning location. The property belongs to Rowley Estates, who have a beautiful collection of luxury self-catering holiday homes and cottages within north Lake District and the Eden valley.

For couple’s looking for something very special, many of the Rowley Estates properties have been approved to hold civil marriages and civil partnerships.

I’m really looking forward to meeting up with Nick and Louise again in early May.
