Belmont Hall Wedding
August 31, 2015
Aaron & Chantelle held their wedding at the beautiful Belmont Hall just outside Hawkshead in the Lake District, a house once owned by Beatrix Potter. They had planned their day a little differently with us heading off up to Tarn Hows for photographs around lunchtime so that they were back in plenty of time to greet their guests as they arrived for a garden party on the lawn. There were cocktails in tea cups, games of croquet and even a dressing up box to keep everyone entertained. Around mid afternoon our bride & groom disappeared to get changed as the guests were ushered into the barn to be seated for the ceremony. A fabulous gospel choir sang as they walked down the aisle hand in hand followed by some beautiful, personal vows.
We had the typical mix of Lake District weather but nothing that a few big umbrellas couldn't fix. The rain also allowed us time to use the views at Tarn Hows without tourists in the back of every shot, sometimes rain is a good thing :-)
