Ann & Robin’s classic Lake District wedding, with Jaye Peg Photography

Published by Claire Gould on

I adore this day because it’s a real family occasion, with gorgeous bride and groom Ann and Robin making sure their favourite little people were a huge part of their day! The venue is Broadoaks Country House in the Lakes. The photographer is super lovely Jaye-Peg Photography. Jaye is one of my favourite Lake District wedding photographers and gets a glowing review from Ann & Robin!

Your best wedding moment or memory

It was the atmosphere…. We wanted a family house party vibe, and that’s exactly what we did….. everyone relaxed and enjoying sharing the moment all together….

Venue name + review

Broadoaks at Troutbeck

Amazing!!! The team took care of everything and more, we were so looked after and they really made it special – a big shout out to all the team in the kitchen too, they bought our bespoke menu to life, we asked them to re create dishes that had meaning to us, and they smashed it!

Tell us a little about your outfits – both of you!

Bride – natural and comfy were in order…. And my head piece and veil were my mothers from her wedding a mere 35 ish years ago!

Groom – traditional with a twist, personalised linings with bespoke stitching with our initials inside…. It was all in the finishing touches!

Dress or suit shop name + review Boutique shop ran by the most wonderful mother & daughter duo….!

Florist name + review

We did our flowers ourselves, they were all artificial so hopefully our daughter can use them in the future!

Cake maker name + review

Wren cakes – make a fantastic gluten free cake…. Nobody knew!!

Stationery maker’s name + review Hand made on traditional press…. What they guys don’t know about printing isn’t worth knowing! They were fantastic….

Any crafty projects or homemade styling touches?

We really enjoyed making all the place names, we didn’t want just little cards we wanted them to be keep sakes, so we used little slates and more of the artificial flowers to bring it all together.

First dance song?

Just Call by John Butler Trio a very personal favourite that no one will have ever heard…. [apart from Claire! I have a quote from John Butler’s Bound to Ramble on my wall!]

Hair + makeup name + review

Brides hair – mother of the bride and maid of honour – 5* and very reasonable price!! One bottle of bubbles!
