The Lingholm Estate Wedding Photography – Rachel & Rob
The Lingholm Estate Wedding Photography | Hosting only a handful of weddings per year, The Lingholm Estate is one of the most exclusive venues we have had the privilege of photographing. With it’s breathtaking views; private stretch of Derwent Water shoreline; and an historic connection to Beatrix Potter that makes it one of the most important properties in Cumbria, we were honoured to be asked by Rachel and Rob to photograph their big day there. The original features of the main house, including the entrance hall’s hand-stitched leather wallpaper, are exquisite, and afforded unique opportunities for both photographing and exploring.
There’s a tradition at The Lingholm Estate for the groomsmen to jump in the lake at dawn; so after some vigorous boat-pumping-up, we ventured towards the brand new jetty, whilst Katie and the bridal party opened champagne back at the main house. After a couple of drinks for courage, Rob and his friends managed to brave the cold water.
Rachel and Rob are a wonderfully outgoing couple, so following their beautiful, emotional ceremony, we dodged the rain in order to capture some wonderful portrait shots by the lake shore. The connection between bride and groom is a strong focal point of our work; and this particular couple allowed us to capture many intimate moments, as well as the overall fun throughout the day.
After some fantastic food and hilarious speeches, the guests got ready for the party whilst the rain poured down. The dance floor was packed from the moment their first song, Bob Marley’s ‘Jammin’, came on, and we celebrated with this energetic crowd until the end of the evening.
Thank you so much Rachel and Rob for choosing us as your wedding photographers at The Lingholm Estate – enjoy your blog xxx.
