The Briery Wood Country House Micro Wedding of Jane and Dom | Wedding Photographer Windermere

My first wedding in June saw me return to Briery Wood Country House Hotel to photograph Jane and Dom’s Micro wedding, on beautiful day in the Lake District. The Whit Bank Holiday weekend had a been very busy for me and can you believe that this was my fourth visit to Briery Wood Country House in the space of a week, one of my favourite Lake District venues to photograph weddings. Jane and Dom had booked me as their Lake District Wedding Photographer to look after them during their Micro Wedding and also in attendance on the day was their immediate family. The wedding began in the beautiful Lake District sunshine at the gazebo in the hotel’s grounds.

There were some beautiful moments during Jane and Dom’s wedding ceremony including their youngest son taking on the duties traditionally given to a best man. It is always great to work alongside the teams from Cumbria Registration Service who conducted Jane and Dom’s wedding ceremony brilliantly. Photographing wedding ceremonies outside gives me the opportunity to move more freely to photograph the couple getting married from a number of different angles too.

As a lake district wedding photographer it is important to photograph all of those special moments during a wedding ceremony. Every couple is as different as their wedding ceremonies and their wedding guests are, and one of the best parts of my job to document what is happening, as it happens. That really allows me to tell a story of through my client’s wedding photographs, and Jane and Dom’s wedding was certainly no exception to this.

It really was an absolute joy to spend a couple of hours with Jane and Dom as the wedding photographer for their Micro Wedding. I really loved spending time in their company and that of their nearest and dearest in Ambleside and Windermere for a couple of hours for their wedding photography.

There are some great locations in the grounds of Briery Wood Country House Hotel for wedding photographs. Including tree lined footpaths and a winding path down to two ponds. On Jane and Dom’s wedding day there was even some freshly fallen blossom from the trees on these footpaths which made a colourful addition to their wedding portraits after their wedding ceremony.

After taking Jane and Dom’s “Just The Two Of Us” wedding photographs we walked back up to the hotel for a couple of group photographs and a special request from the bride. The father of the bride had lovingly restored a classic Citroen 2CV as a wedding present to his daughter, Jane, on her wedding day. It was important for Jane to have a photograph of her and her father with the car and I was more than happy to oblige them.

It was a real joy to be Jane and Dom’s lake district wedding photographer for their micro wedding at Briery Wood Country House Hotel. I would like to thank them both for choosing me to be their wedding photographer and I would like to wish the two of them and their family all the best for their future too.
