Park House Barn Wedding
Lake District Wedding Photography
When Rebecca and Andrew first contacted me Rebecca said her dream for their Park House Barn wedding would be to walk everywhere. I assumed she meant a few minutes between the church and Park House Barn, I had no idea she meant ten minutes down from her mum’s house in Beetham and then an hour from the church to Park House Barn via the fields through the Dallam Estate. It was a bit mizzly during the bridal preparations so I wondered if she had a plan B but in true Lake District spirit she said ‘this isn’t rain it’s mist!’ No surprise then that she had a shorter length wedding dress and her walking books and woolly socks on standby. In fact the majority of people brought walking boots and joined Andrew and Rebecca on their wonderful walk through our gorgeous countryside to the wedding venue in Heversham. This wedding was spectacularly relaxed in every sense and so much fun. Rebecca’s mum had been trying to finish major renovations to her house in time for the wedding day but as with most builds it was a bit delayed so there were half painted walls and random wires poking out here and there. No matter, Rebecca was truly relaxed about the whole thing.
A week or so after the wedding I received a hand written letter in the post (almost unheard of these days and so lovely to receive) it said “Lisa! Oh my goodness thank you for your smiles, laughter, hard work and dancing last Saturday. As soon as you arrived at the house in the morning and my mum mentioned something about ‘staging’ some shots and you were like ‘nah, I’ll just take photographs of what’s actually going on’, I knew you would really record the joy, emotion, celebrations and silliness of the day. Thank you!”
