Scott & Lisa’s destination wedding in the Lakes, with Jaye Peg Photography

Published by Claire Gould on

How is your Friday going, lovelies? I’ll be honest: this gorgeous wedding is absolutely brightening our day through a storm of technical ‘issues’ today! What on earth we’d do without the magic and beauty of Lisa & Scott’s Lakes wedding, and the calming, happy vibes of Jaye Peg’s gorgeous photography, we’ll never know!

This is an absolute beauty, and a wedding we’ll remember for a long time to come! The happy couple tied the knot at Broadoaks Country House – quite possibly the Lake District’s favourite cosy-quirky and super welcoming wedding venue. They’ve told us all about their day and recommended some favourite suppliers, so do have a proper scroll through and enjoy! We’ll be cracking open a gin and celebrating the weekend now!

How did you choose your photographer?

As Scott and I are not from the Lake District, finding wedding suppliers was a task but we came across Jaye by chance and we are so glad we did

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!

Jaye is fantastic! From our first telephone conversation, to our first meeting (in the pub) to the wedding day itself, she was amazing. She put Scott and myself at ease, explained everything in detail and we could not of been happier. Her photography is beyond amazing, our wedding photos are stunning, better than we could of ever imagined.

What’s your fondest memory of your wedding?

We only had a small wedding so having our close family and friends being part of our special day was lovely.

Tell us about your venue – what made this place special for you?

We choose Broadoaks Country House in Windermere as we got the WOW factor the first time we visited and we both had our heart set on having our wedding day there so when we were told that had availability for us, we were so happy. It is a beautiful place, our wedding coordinator was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble for her, the staff are second to none and the food is amazing, it was the perfect venue for our special day.

Did you love wearing your outfits? How was your shopping experience, was it fun to find your wedding gear?

We loved wearing our wedding outfits. Scott chose his own suit and accessories, all Hugo Boss and he did a great job and looked so smart and handsome. I had the day out with my mum, mother in law to be and my best friend dress shopping, it was a lovely day and I found my perfect dress and veil by Sincerity Bridal at a fantastic shop in Stockport.

Hair & makeup

My hair and makeup was done by Ely and she was just amazing, I let her do what she thought best for me and the results were stunning, such a talented lady and I would recommend her to anyone.

Did you hire a florist? Tell us about any floral amazingness 🙂

We used Lily Lou’s of Ambleside to create the buttonholes and bouquet. We are both quite horticulturally challenged so we explained our colour theme and vision and they created such beautiful flowers for us.

As cake lovers here at English Wedding we’d LOVE to know who made your cake, and how delicious it was?

Our cake was made by The Bakery at No 4 in Kendal. We had decided to have a red velvety wedding cake with real flowers as decoration and they made us a wonderful 2 tier cake, it was the best we had ever tasted and we didn’t want it to end.

Styling and decor

Our venue dressing was created by Purple Swan in Kendal, we told them everything what we would like and how we would like it and they created such beautiful rooms, everything looked amazing and it all got a WOW when ourselves and our guests walked into the rooms.
