If any boys are reading this, look away now. This wedding is girly, summery, and as pretty in pink as they get! Kirstin and Tom were married in the Lake District in early July — the perfect time of year for peonies!
The wedding photographer was Simon Hudspeth, who is based in Durham.
Watch out for new English Wedding sponsor features coming soon — Simon is one of our sponsors and helped this blog get off the ground back in 2009.
My favourite images from this wedding are the bride and groom on the doorstep of the gorgeous Westlakes Hotel in Gosforth — a lovely English wedding venue where I used to babysit as a teenager. (About a hundred years ago)
Muncaster Church dates from 1140 — that’s almost 900 years old! It’s “open to all, of all religions for quiet reflection and prayer… still in active use as the spiritual home of the Parish of Muncaster.”
The Westlakes Hotel is on the quietest edge of the Western Lake District, one of the UK’s favourite beauty spots close to the glorious mountains and a pebble’s throw from the seaside! It dates from 1870, a Georgian period home typical of the Lakes.
There are more peonies, but for now think of these as a taster. Can you wait just one day for an inspiration board? It’ll be gorgeous — all made up from Simon Hudspeth’s photography and oh so lovely and pink!
The venue decoration is beautiful. Marquees are always full of natural light and decorated simply they look divine.
