SUMMER LOVE – sizzling summer weddings in the Lake District


SUMMER WEDDING Fun and relaxed exclusive summer weddings in the Lake District

Where did the time go?

As a couple, do you marvel at how you can have been together all this time when you don’t feel that much older? Does it seem like only yesterday when you first met? Can you still recall those heady days of carefree summers? The truth is that time does fly, and life is hectic. In true ‘summer lovin’ style, life does ‘happen so fast’!

when the time is now

Families, mortgages, careers – the commitments of our busy lives can mean that other priorities may always come first. Getting married might be something you always planned to do one day, but life has a habit of getting in the way. Now that the time is right, you are looking for a meaningful and beautiful way to tie the knot… being together a long time doesn’t mean you can’t have an incredible wedding day to remember!

The perfect choice for Lake lovers

More and more of our couples have been together a long time when they find us. They may have been coming to the Lakes for years on holiday. As nature lovers, the Lake District may have always been on their ‘must visit’ list. The Lake District is an extraordinarily beautiful place. It’s wild, natural beauty encourages us all to be mindful of our environmental impact, and this is reflected in our wedding styles.

Our Summer Lovin’ wedding package has been tailor-made for couples like you who have stood the test of time. It’s a day all about the two of you and your life together. A day to celebrate the couple that you were when you first met and fell in love, and the couple you are today. As private people, it’s a wedding experience to share with close family and friends in one of the most beautiful places in the world. A relaxed and carefree afternoon to celebrate your love in a place that you love.

...without the stress or strain

From the moment your wedding journey begins, we take care of the details, choosing to care for the planet as much as possible. From locally-delivered, seasonal flowers, to locally sourced handmade wedding cake served on vintage china plates, everything is taken care of. Homemade scented candles and natural petal confetti complement the stunning natural surroundings. Marry outside the barn with the fells as your backdrop or in our elegant garden room with a picture window onto the landscaped gardens.

We want you to ‘press pause’ on your busy lives, re-capture that carefree spirit of those ‘summer lovin’ days. Spend a blissful afternoon creating memories to last the rest of your lifetime together. From cocktails on the terrace to meandering along the lake-shore, we plan your perfect day so that you don’t have to.

there's no better place to celebrate your love

Wainwright summed up a walker’s love of the Lake District fells, … “a love that has grown over the years, whatever motive first took them there: …tried and trusted friends, always there when needed.” The same could be true of sharing a lifetime with that special person.

What better place to celebrate a love like yours?
