Autumn is one of the most spectacular times for a wedding in the Lake District. It’s also one of the most beautiful, as the leaves in our valleys turn from green to gold. It is fantastic to be a wedding photographer at this time of year.
At Lingholm we can cater for large and small weddings either within the main house or outside in the grounds. For weddings of up to 90 guests our largest function room, The Stone Room, makes a wonderful backdrop for both the ceremony and the reception. The Stone Room is a magnificent hall with high ceilings, leaded windows and an imposing stone fireplace, a crystal chandelier adds a touch of elegance for your big day.
For more intimate weddings we can offer The Dining Room, which is a wonderfully atmospheric room with oak panelling and an ornate carved fireplace dating back to 1605.
For larger weddings of up to 150 people, we can host a larger ceremony in The Stone Room. With the reception moving to the grounds of the Estate in either a Tipi or a Marquee.
You and your wedding party will have full access to the grounds and lakeshore. Including the photogenic terracing on the lake side of the house.
