Intimate Weddings

Smaller more intimate lake district weddings  

At Cote How we specialise in relaxed and intimate ceremonies, based around two people who adore each other and want to celebrate their life together with close family and friends.

Your intimate wedding would not be the same if you shared our venue and our attention with other weddings, so we guarantee exclusive use of the venue for the entirety of your wedding, no matter how small.

Gauging the size of your wedding can be difficult for some, and some tiny weddings do indeed swell!
We have taken a range of small wedding options and tried to make them as flexible as possible offering you a selection of smaller more intimate weddings for a variety of budgets.
Accommodation is available for the elopement weddings and the full day weddings, please ask for details.
The full day wedding for upto 40 can also be offered as a small weekend wedding.

Read each of the wedding styles below, decide on the "elements" you would like in your perfect wedding, the date and the numbers and we can plan your bespoke smaller wedding for you.
