Lake District Wedding – Laura Ashley Hotel
Natalie and John’s wedding took place at the stunning Laura Ashley Hotel in Lake Windermere. The Laura Ashley Hotel – know as The Belsfield is a boutique hotel in the Lake District with 6 acres of landscaped gardens offering great views and plenty of photograph opportunities over looking Lake Windermere. A typically rainy British summers day complicated the breathtaking views of the Lake District which added to the atmosphere of the Natalie and John’s wedding day and made for some fun portraits involving an umbrella.
Picture-perfect Lake Windermere
In my opinion, only a few places are more romantic than the Lake District and I aways welcome the short 50 minute drive up the M6 to shoot weddings here. Steeped in natural beauty, majestic mountains, wild-grass moors and shimmering lakes make this iconic part of the world a wonderful setting for a truly memorable wedding day. Just down the road from Bowness village is the Laura Ashley Hotel – a sophisticated Victorian mansion with Lake Windermere views.
Following a refurbishment in 2014, The Belsfield Hotel is immaculately designed and kitted out with luxury Laura Ashley interior. Natalie and John where married in The Windermere suite which over looks the lake. After the wedding ceremony the guests sipped champagne in the glowing Lounge Bar, which takes pride of place in the centre of the hotel. A canapé selection was handed out in the drawing room which provided the ideal time for those all-important photos with loved ones, in extraordinary surroundings of the venue.
