Merewood Hotel Autumn Wedding
Liz + Richard’s Autumn Wedding in the Lake District
RICHARD | ELIZABETH
Merewood Hotel is such a perfect autumn wedding venue for really making the most of the Lake District colours. With extensive ancient woodland and heaps of stylish space indoors in case the weather turns, it’s a beautifully reliable wedding venue!
Liz and Richard chose to have an intimate celebration with around 30 guests – the perfect number for it to feel like a party but not become overwhelming. As huge fans of autumn they really wanted to make the most of the surrounding area for their wedding photos. With this in mind they decided to go for full day coverage. This allowed for not only getting ready and detail shots, ceremony, groups and candids galore, but also a multi-destination approach to their portraits. On the day a large traffic jam meant an afternoon trip down to the lake was off the cards, so using my local knowledge we took a back route up to a deserted Kirkston Pass for some wild mountain portraits instead. It made my day (well year actually!) that Richard, who is a driving instructor complimented me MORE THAN ONCE on my driving skills! We also managed to get down to the lake after all, opting for an evening shoot at Ambleside when the traffic had calmed down!
I couldn’t have asked for a nicer, happier couple to photograph, it really was a pleasure. Thanks for having me guys!
Oh Tiree. They are absolutely incredible. I really can’t believe how beautiful they are. We are so happy with them.You are hugely talented. I really feel you’ve managed to capture the essence of the day and the candid shots of people are so lovely.
