Beautiful Wedding Photography in Cumbria and The Lake District
HELLO! I’M Janet.
I am an Old England wedding photographer and visual storyteller.
It was a very dull damp day for the wedding at the Old England Hotel in Bowness. My second shooter and I arrived to cover bride and groom preps before the ceremony. Louise was in the bridal suite with her mum and sister they were just finishing off their make up and hair.
The ceremony was being held in the garden room which overlooks Windermere. The mere was very busy with lots of boats passing by. Louise and Tony had been legally married a few weeks ago so were having a humanist ceremony.
The ceremony was lovely with lost of interaction for family and friends. After the ceremony we all went upstairs for drinks and photographs. It was a shame it was raining as the gardens are lovely.
After the drink’s reception er set off to Bowness pier to board the boat for the cruise around Windermere. Hooray it stopped raining, so we were able to go upstairs for more photographs.
