My goal as a Penrith wedding photographer
To begin with. My goal as a Penrith wedding photographer is to craft photographs that are timeless and creative. And a genuine portrayal of your wedding celebration as it unfolds.
Next, I want to show the emotion of the day through amazing portraits and breathtaking use of light.
I have years of experience working in Lancashire, Cumbria and Lake District. Achieving true wedding photo journalistic coverage.

A 14th-century castle renovated for modern living
Crenellated towers rise up as you approach. Buttressed walls silvered with lichen welcome you. Through an archway to a cobbled courtyard. Blencowe has impact. After drinks on the terrace, summon guests with the castle gong. To a banquet by glittering candlelight in the claret dining hall. Overlooking the gardens and Cumbrian bluffs beyond. The kitchens and butler’s pantry are ample for whipping up feasts or bringing in caterers on a lavish scale. Catch up for quiet conversation in the Oak Room snug. Or shoot the breeze in the Billiards Room under the glow of a Tiffany lamp.
A bit of Blencowe history
All self-respecting castles have a story. Blencowe’s no exception. So gather your guests around roaring log fires in the Solar Room that spans an entire wing. Crack open wine and delicacies from your welcome hamper and regale. When Cromwell’s men attempted to storm Greystoke, they stumbled on Blencowe instead. Cannon fire split the North Tower in two. Their idiocy is your gain. The dramatic V-shaped chasm. Now shored with glass, is an award-winning architectural feature of the restorations. Allowing light and modernity to flood inside.
