Where do I start with James & Deven. Having first met them both at a previous wedding, they are an absolute pleasure to be around. Full of life…love and happiness for their family and friends. Hard-working and always full of laughter, it is always clear to anyone how smitten they are with each other.
James & Deven are based in the Lake District, both owning local businesses and are very much part of the community. When we went through their plans for their big day, I knew it was going to be special. The plan….time with family and friends, followed by one hell of a party.
The Wedding Day
Deven and the girls woke up early at Deven’s parents, whilst James and the guys were at their family home with their little boy Oscar. Both the bride and groom and all the wedding party was so relaxed, there wasn’t any rushing about and absolutely no stressful situations and that just shows throughout the day in the beautiful images.
Saint Catherine’s Church – Ceremony
The first stop was for the wedding ceremony at the picturesque Saint Catherine’s Church. This beautiful little church is located in Crook and is nestled into the hillside of the Lake District.
The Ryebeck Hotel – Reception
After the wedding ceremony, it was off to The Ryebeck Hotel in Windermere. Set in its own private gardens overlooking Lake Windermere it is a popular Lake District Wedding Venue. The relaxed wedding breakfast with speeches from their nearest and dearest was perfect.
James & Deven were an absolute pleasure to be around and photograph. The sun was shinning, the food and drink was flowing and come sunset the skies turn red with love. From start to end this wedding will always be on that i remember and an honour to be involved with.
James & Deven thank you for inviting me to capture the moment for you both, it was incredible from start to end and I cannot wait to see you both again. I hope you enjoyed the little snapshot of their beautiful Lake District Wedding.
