All our weddings are special, of course they are, but this wedding was for us just that little bit special!!
We photographed Rachael’s sister wedding a few years ago and we have also photographed a number of other family weddings over the years, as well as a few close family friends, so we were delighted to be asked to photograph the latest of this lovely families weddings. Boy do these guys know how to have a great time!! If you need proof, check out the party pictures later on in this blog!!
It had rained pretty heavy (Buckets) the day before the wedding so it was fantastic to see blue skies when we arrived at Silverholme Manor, which is without doubt the most amazing wedding location I have ever seen. Situated on the banks of Lake Windermere the views from the house are amazing. You really do need to see this place to believe it!!
Later in the day we were able to jump in our Land Rover with the Bride and Groom as well as the video crew sat on the tail gate and make the short trip down to the very edge of lake windermere. The Autumn colours were just starting to show, what a perfect spot for Rachael & Jon to grab a few moments together in what was a bust day for them both.
Rachael & John are both mad keen outdoor people and they spend much of their leisure time in the Lakes and it was nice to work with people who really do love the area so much. Sawyer Church is hidden away in a stunning little village just a short drive from Lake Windermere & Hawkshead.
For us the entire day was such a pleasure, it was great meeting up with so many past clients, who have now become good friends. We also got to catch up with some new members of the family. Its a shame but I think we could well be retired by the time the next family weddings are being planned….
A lot of hard work went into the planning of this wedding day and I really must say a massive well done to Karen Rhodes Catering who ran the show so well on the day and the food was superb! We also enjoyed working with Rebecca Reville Videography and we are really looking forward to seeing a copy of the wedding video.
I could go on about this wedding for hours, so lets just get into the pictures, sit back and enjoy what was a fantastic wedding in the most stunning locations and with a group of people who are such a pleasure to be with.. I think we will remember this day for a long time!!
