Sarah and Matt’s Wedding Coniston Coppermines
I met up with Sarah and bridesmaids at the Coppermines, the make up artists had been there since 9.00 a.m. and was hard at work. The Groom and his groomen’s were getting ready at the cottages further down the valley and my second shooter went to capture the guys getting ready.
I found all Sarah’s special pieces her headdress, shoes, bag and perfume and her beautiful handmade bouquet, that needed to be photographed, then went on to capture lots of getting ready photographs, the cottage was very busy and there was a wonderful party atmosphere.
Sarah is mad on all things Disney and this showed in the theme of the wedding and all the decorations.
The weather was beautiful for the ceremony so all the guests were able to sit outside. There is something magical about sitting outside and celebrating a wedding. The Coppermines has such beautiful views with the valley unfolding around you, and the stream with waterfall as a backdrop.
Sarah and Matt had hired a Range Rover, so we drove down to Coniston Water for some shots by the lake, the northern end of the lake has a beautiful jetty and fantastic view of the fells Sarah and Matt love the Lake District Fells so photographing them with the fells in was very important to both of them, and we were not spoilt for choice on such a beautiful day.
We drove back up the fell to rejoin all Sarah and Matt’s family and friends, it was time to take formal family photographs and to capture the fun of the day, Sarah had made some games to play and
everyone was joining in. Then onto the speeches and cutting of the wedding cake.
