Gilpin Lake House Wedding Photography | Lake District

December 3, 2017

This incredible Lake District wedding venue is romantic, tranquil and set in the most beautiful, picturesque grounds; 100 acres of private woodland, it’s own tarn and boathouse. It’s no wonder Gilpin Lake House wedding photography is an absolute joy. It really is photography heaven with a surprise around every turn as you wander through the delightful grounds.

Pat and Jo got ready in rooms next door to each other. There was the usual shenanigans in the boys room with youtube videos on how to tie a tie! Pat popped his head round the girl’s door a couple of times during the morning which was a reflection of how relaxed everyone was.

They had an intimate civil wedding ceremony with around 50 guests. The ceremony was set in the dining room overlooking Knipe Tarn.  The sun started shining just after lunch after a very wet start to the day so everyone enjoyed champagne on the terrace in the autumn sunshine, overlooking the beautiful woodlands and tarn.

The wedding breakfast was held in a small marquee again overlooking the tarn. Food at Gilpin is a major event with Michelin Star chef Hrishikesh Desai overseeing the restaurants in his role as executive chef. Pat and Jo delighted their guests with retro favours from school days such as frazzles and chipsticks. The table decorations were bright and fun.

We had a lovely team on the day including Lucy Pearson who did the girl’s hair and make-up. Brackens created the gorgeous autumnal flowers with shades of orange and deep red.  I hope you enjoy looking through the images below.mOne of my favourite photographs is the guest tipping all the confetti cones onto Jo’s head. This wedding really was a delight to be part of, such lovely, friendly people and the most stunning location.
