Louise and David’s wedding photography | Langdale Hotel and Brimstone | Lake District Wedding Photographer
David and louise booked the lovely Langdale Church in Langdale, The Lake District for their wedding and celebrated at the nearby Langdale Hotel and Spa including the boutique hotel within hotel called Brimstone. With a church wedding at lunchtime and drinks reception not until four hours later we had plenty of time to explore the Langdales whilst the wedding guests made their way back to the hotel to relax and enjoy the facilities before meeting back for the drinks reception and wedding breakfast.
Immediately after the wedding ceremony and group photos myself and assistant Jonny changed out of trouser and smart shoes at the side of the road (it’s quiet out here) , donning jeans and walking boots ready for the photo adventure that lay ahead. David and louise are keen walkers and more than willing to head off the beaten track to make the most of Blea Tarn and the surrounding hills. With a relatively calm lake providing reflections, imposing vistas and the peaks of The Langdales in the background it was a wedding photographers dream.
Brimstone is a hotel within a hotel at The Langdale, David and Louise had booked exclusive use of the Brimstone and so were able to plan their wedding day as they required complete with down time mid afternoon for the guests to enjoy the hotels spa and facilities whilst we were out in the hills taking the wedding photographs.
A winter wedding in this remote part of the world could have been made difficult by the weather, to counter this David and Louise had full use the the hotels specially equipped Land Rover for the day. Thankfully the weather played ball and we were able to use our own not quite as spec’d out Land Rover for the photograph session later in the day.

A short drive from the church is Blea Tarn, a landscape photographers mecca and a natural port of call for a stop off for wedding photos.
Using walkie talkies and hand signals we were able to create wedding photographs over the tarn, taken from around 400m away.
