I seem to have shot lots of weddings at Storrs Hall in the last couple of years, and they’ve all been an absolute pleasure. This huge lakeside mansion was built in the 1790s and has all sorts of interesting history – from Wordsworth reciting his “Daffodils” poem in the drawing room to me jumping off the pier for a swim while the guests ate their meal because it was SO DAMN HOT in the heatwave of 2019!
There are lots of lovely hotels on the shores of Windermere, but Storrs Hall definitely has more lake frontage than most. It has huge gardens which actually form the shoreline of the lake, as well as a jetty and the beautiful stone pier out to the “Temple of the Heroes”. The woods are very pretty too, and all these features can be used during a short walk for portraits on your big day.
Indoors there’s heaps of space, light and character too – always reassuring when you’re not sure what the Lakeland weather might have in store.
