Jo Bradbury PhotographyJo Bradbury Photography - Caroline and Simon's Stunning Spring Wedding

A very popular month is May! The bluebells were awash all over the fells around Cote How, blossom adorned the trees andthe air was heady with the sweet scent form the vibrant yellow azaelias and Lamburnham. The first stirring of the rhodedendrons were making an apprearance and the scene was set! The sun shone all day for a very relaxed and happy wedding complimented by Caroline's beutiful bridesmaid wearing a satunning vibrant blue to match her wild flower themed flowers. Jo specialises in back lit photography and will take the time to capture those timeless moments just the two of you with the setting sun as your backdrop!

Kate and Matts Lake District Barn Wedding

Joyce Wedding Photographer: Kate and Matt's Lake District Barn Wedding

It was a very easy choice for Kate and Matt's wedding day. Big outdoor lovers who spend a lot of time in the Lakes, they knew it was the perfect setting for the small and intimate wedding they had planned. Many of their wedding guests had never visited the Lake District before, and this lovely wedding venue was the perfect introduction to such a beautiful area.

Bike Jenna Carpenter Photography: Laura and Pete's Outdoor Weddings

Where do I start with Laura & Peter’s Wedding? Beautiful setting, amazing views, lovely people and not forgetting their dog Meg!
This was my first wedding at Cote How in Rydal and I hope to be back again in the future. The rustic barn and Lakeland house were the perfect setting for Laura & Peter’s relaxed and informal celebrations.
I joined Laura and her bridesmaids as they were getting ready in the afternoon. There are no cars allowed into the venue for the wedding so I enjoyed a little walk by the river to get to the secluded venue. 

I was a little sad to leave Laura & Peter’s Wedding – the whole day was so relaxed and personal. It was a pleasure to capture and share.
Thank you again to Cote How for your help on the day and providing such an amazing venue.
Also to Laura & Peter for allowing me to share and capture their day.

Graham and LynneSimon Hughes Photography: Lynne and Graham's July Wedding - Small and Intimate Wedding

A perfect Summer's day set the scene for an idyllic and relaxed small family wedding. Lynne and Graham first came to Cote How earlier in the Spring knowing exactly what they wanted for their wedding. As both had been married before and had been together some 14 years, they wanted a small and intimate celebration with just close family and friends. Something relaxed and friendly featuring great food and time to unwind and enjoy some background music and a little dance. They enjoyed an intimate ceremony in the Fairfield chandelier room, followed by drinks and canapes on the terrace. Lakeside photographs then followed and a cheeky dipping of toes in the water to cool off, before returning to the barn for a delicious 2 course meal with plenty of time afterwards to relax and chat, or dance to your playlists, before departing mid evening. 

This wedding is based on our 6 hour all inclusive intimate wedding for 24

Fairfield Wedding Ceremony

Derent Phoography: Angela and John's Wedding - Unique Lake District Wedding with Wedding Barn Reception

This was a new venue for me and I was blown away by both the beauty of the location and how well the team there catered for the wedding party. Owner Caroline used to be a wedding dress designer and had her own boutique in Nottingham, so she has a great deal of experience in the wedding trade.

Congratulations to Angela and John for creating a fantastic wedding, full of everlasting memories for themselves and their guests… It was a wonderful day!
