Wedding photography at a stunning new Lake District wedding venue

28th April 2013
Being a Lake District Wedding Photographer I get to photograph beautiful weddings in some of the most stunning venues, surrounded by wonderful backdrops of lakes and mountains. Lake Windermere often features in my photographs with many venues situated along its shores but it’s not often that a new wedding venue appears overlooking the lake. That has recently changed though with a wonderful new wedding venue now available in the Lake District so I couldn’t resist the chance of a collaborative shoot there.



Built in 1820, Silverholme is an elegant manor house on the shores of Lake Windermere, recently restored and renovated with beautiful craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Set in 5000 acres of the Graythwaite Estate it is licensed for weddings and civil partnerships inside the house: for up to 60 guests in the drawing room, dining room or library; and for up to 100 guests in the barn close to the house.










Obviously it takes more that a just luxury-wedding venue in the Lake District to create beautiful wedding photographs and so I collaborated with some exceptional wedding suppliers to create these stunning bridal images on the day.

Petticoats-a-Plenty offer not just petticoats but a range of stunning 50’s style wedding dresses and Andrea came to the rescue with the loan of a lovely Anna Wedding Dress for Carla to model on the day. Made in superior Duchess Satin, with an overlay of 4 layers of tulle, and an intricate 3D flower lacing over the bodice the dress was perfect for the Georgian manor we were shooting in.




Amy from Madeline House Hair in Barrow is gifted with the ability to create beautiful bridal hair masterpieces and she kindly gave up her time to ensure Carla’s hair was perfect for the day. Madeline House Hair is an exclusive salon located in Barrow in Furness led by company director Debbie Wakefield. The team have experience gained from working with some of the top session-stylists in the country, from Vidal Sassoon and Mark Hill - twice British and International Hairdresser of the year.

Dress and hair sorted it was down to Alyson from POSH Flowers in Barrow in Furness to provide a truly exquisite bridal bouquet, in fact she provided two! POSH Flowers provides stunning, original designs, using the freshest flowers, backed up by fantastic customer service and the creations Alyson produced for the day were no exception.








We had a great day at Silverholme and produced some beautiful bridal photographs, hopefully I’ll be there soon photographing a real wedding. I’d love to hear your thoughts on these images so why not leave a comment or two below.

Thanks and bye for now.

Darren.













I do like the odd black and white bridal photograph.
