Cragwood Country House Wedding : Fay and Kris
Fay and Kris’s Cragwood Country House wedding in the Lake District was a day to remember. Set in the heart of the Lake District, the November rain was making its customary appearance, but that didn’t affect the fun and party atmosphere one bit. Weddings in this neck of the woods always seem to end with an epic party!
I made the journey from Manchester to the Lakes early in the morning, arriving to capture the anticipation building. Kris and the guys all excitedly getting ready in one half of the hotel whilst Fay and the girls relaxed and prepared on the other side. It’s always handy when bride and groom prep are in the same space, I can tell both sides of the story as I move from room to room :-).
The love between these guys was clear to see, both beaming their way through a beautiful ceremony. Next, a mulled wine filled reception where the party atmosphere kicked in! The evening was rocking and the type of dacncefloor I love to capture. Setting the tone with a confetti cannon, soon we saw air guitars, glow sticks, tequila shots and awesome dance moves!
Fay and Kris were such an ace couple to shoot and I loved documenting the story of their wedding day. Capturing personalities and the little moments is what I do best, and some of my favourite frames are below…
“We’ve finally had a chance to sit down with a glass of wine to look though the wedding photos together. They are… AMAZING. We couldn’t be happier with them, they’ve captured our day better than we could ever imagine. We’ve already sent them to parents and there were a few tears as you can imagine. Thank you so so much!!! “
