Real wedding REVIEW...

Lauren & Richards Luxury Weekend
We had a weekend wedding at Cote How in May, after spotting the venue in full swing back in August 2020 at the end of our family walk around Loughrigg Fell. The greenery and flowers, strings of lights, and quiet music all set in the quaint venue grounds deep within the valley was just the most beautiful sight. We said then when the time came to marry, this would be the perfect place. On contacting and booking our wedding with Caroline, we were filled with excitement and confidence our day would be nothing but perfect. And that it was, Caroline and her team were incredibly attentive, and we couldn’t have asked for a more organised, calm and relaxed weekend wedding. With memories, we will treasure forever, and we will definitely be keeping in touch with Cote How on our annual holidays to the Lakes.
