This was my first time shooting a wedding at the glorious Laura Ashley Belsfield Hotel in Windermere - just 10 minutes down the road from me. I had been there a while back when the refurb was just about finished, for a styled shoot which you can see here.
This time, however, there was true love in the air and the whole hotel was buzzing with the happiness of Leanne, Alex, their two gorgeous boys and all their many friends and family.
The weather wasn't perfect - the sun came out in the end, but only after quite a lot of drizzle, and some very cold winds. This barely mattered though, as having exclusive use at The Belsfield meant it was a photographer's dream - plenty of light open space for group shots, portraits, mingling, eating, dancing - and never that feeling of being herded from one room to another while the hotel staff rush around to switch things about. It really is a stunning and luxurious space to hold your wedding celebrations.
It was great to work with some of my favourite suppliers on the day - details below :)
Congratulations Leanne and Alex, what a corker of a wedding day!
