Hazel & Gary | Armathwaite Hall, Kewsick

Hazel & Gary-150Hazel and Gary… where do I begin?

I was completely over-the-moon-excited to be asked to be part of an elopement. I adore the busy chaos of wedding so much, and in the middle of the chaos is where I’m most comfortable, there’s so much going on, so much interaction, so many faces, so much to photograph.. I’ve always wanted to be part of an elopement to see the other side. The calm. The two people sloping off and celebrating quietly together. Savouring the quiet of the day and just spending some ridiculously special and sacred time together..

And that brings me back to Hazel and Gary. Who took a few days away, just the two of them, to the blissful peace of the Lake District to say their vows to each other. They got ready together and were so relaxed throughout, no stress whatsoever. So chilled that when it was ceremony time Hazel forgot her bouquet, Gary forgot the rings, they both forgot the music to walk them down the aisle and back up again… but obviously not one speck of all that really mattered.

This day was all about them..

Rebecca & James | Seatoller House, Lake District

Rebecca & James-452

I’ve just been putting the final touches to Rebecca and James’ album so it felt quite fitting to blog their beautiful Lake District wedding today. Living on separate continents (Rebecca lives in Luxembourg and James in Botswana) and planning nuptials can’t be the easiest task but these two definitely pulled it off with a wonderfully hand-made and personal day. They had legally said their vows in Edinburgh a few days before, and celebrated with a outdoor ceremony in front of friends and family at Seatoller House, deep in the Lake District before having their reception in the neighbouring field in a teepee. All the details of their day, from Rebecca’s co-designed Minna wedding dress to James’ zebra socks, really speak for themselves so I’ll let the pictures do the talking.. you can also read Rebecca’s write up of the day on their Love My Dress feature.
