Lake District Teepee Wedding
Lily & Charlie’s wedding took place on the grounds of the historic Underley Estate in the beautiful backdrop of the Lake District.
When Lily told me that the wedding would take place in Kirkby Londsale, I have to admit I had absolutely no clue where it was! A 6 hour drive later I was pleasantly surprised to find Kirkby Londsale is a beautiful, quaint little village full of friendly Cumbrians. And for such a little town; what a magnificent church.
There were quite a few rollercoaster moments on Lily & Charlie’s day, from exiting St Mary's Church as newlyweds to be greeted by torrential rain, an MIA mother-of-the-bride during the group photos and a field of loose sheep!
All these moments always make the day so unique to me, and the rain didn’t last for long - once everyone had filed back to the venue, the sun came out and we were treated to a stunning Lake District sunset.
One of the highlights for me during the day however had to be the speeches – all 6 of them! I know many sigh at the thought of the speeches at weddings; so many are either mind numbingly boring, cringe inducing and nearly always too long. Not the case for Lily & Charlie! Along with the traditional speeches from the groom, father of the bride and best man, also came some hilarious and tear jerking speeches from the other groomsmen, the maid of honour and the bride herself! The tipi roared with laughter throughout and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house - I was so glad to capture some of these moments.
Thank you Lily & Charlie for all the love and the laughs!
