With Hipping Hall and The Ryebeck Hotel in their portfolio, I just knew that the team who have been working hard to launch The Forest Side at Grasmere would get it perfectly right. It's a real gem of a venue. Nestled up on the hillside just outside of pretty Grasmere, it's secluded, luxurious, quirky and, well, just fantastic. It really does embody everything that is wonderful about getting married in the Lake District - the location, the local produce and culinary talent, the hospitality and the culture.
Alun and Anna's original wedding plans had been thrown up in the air by Storm Desmond, but obviously it was meant to be, as it felt like there just couldn't have been a better place or a better time for their family and friends to join them on a perfect sunny day - I'll let the photos speak for themselves :)
