Real MIDWEEK wedding REVIEW...

Rosie and Sam's All-Inclusive Wedding

Cote How Review – Sam & Rosie “Sheer perfection! Cote How is an idyllic setting for anyone looking for a small, private and beautifully organised wedding in the Lake District. We cannot thank Caroline, Sophie and all the team at Cote How enough for an amazing day. As a bit of a wedding phobic couple not even we knew what we really wanted but every last detail was perfect and the day ran so smoothly. Every need was catered for and our guests were full of compliments for the venue and its location. Not only were the house and barn immaculate and beautifully decorated, Rydal Water is but a stone’s throw away and the perfect location for photographs. We cannot praise highly enough and couldn’t imagine getting married anywhere else.” OCTOBER 2020

Simple Relaxed & Romantic!

Rosie and Sams' All-Inclusive wedding at Cote How

Here is a lovely short video showing highlights of Rosie and Sam’s intimate midweek 6-Hour family wedding here at Cote How.

All of  the images are by Rachel Joyce and tell their wedding story beautifully from their arrival to departure.
Sam and Rosie are keen Lake District enthusiats and often come here on holiday making Cote How a perfect choice for them. They had a tiny wedding of just 14 people in total, and wanted ot give their family and close friends a real treat. They opted for the midweek all-inclusive as it meant that they could come tothe Lakes on holiday as usual and stay locally on the lead up to their wedding day the nremain in the Lakes for the remainder of their holiday as their romantic mini-moon. 

They are a quiet and private couple who wanted no fuss, no big wedding and also wanted us to take the strain and were happy to leave all of the wedidng planning to us.
Rosie and Sam opted for the wildflower look for their flowers (chosen from our Pinterest Mood Boards), and decided on a loemon ckae for their wedding cake which we provided too. 

They booked thier accommodation locally and arrange for Mountain Goat Executive hire to ferry their wedding guests all in one go! A great way to arrive all together and enjoy every minute together as a family. 

They opted for a cermeony in the house, keeping the bar nunder wraps for their guests to feast their eyes on later – This is always a lovely touch as the guests sometimes have no idea that we have a quaint barn with amazing views just down the terrace from the house!  

They all enjoyed a beautiful autumnal day (early October) and got some fabulous phtogorphs dwon by the lake and all aorund the grounds – As is normal – Rachel really does cover all angles! 

The merriment continued with the ir meal in the barn and Sam’s sister did a fabulous “Best-Man” speech!
Certainly a day to remember – A fantastic small family wedding, with perfect weather and and a wonderful guestlist.
