woodland engagement shoot

Kate & Ben | An alternative engagement shoot in the Lake District

I love going away for mini adventures and several weeks ago Russell and I did just that and drove (yes, drove!) to the Lake District for the weekend. Neither of us had been before and we LOVED it! We headed to Blea Tarn for an incredible styled elopement shoot (more of that to come soon!) and we also had the chance to photograph this awesome alternative engagement styled shoot while we were there. 

Kate and Ben are good friends of The Burtons, the guys who organised the shoot along with Jade Maguire Photography. These guys are so cute and it was so lovely to spend some time with them walking around the beautiful woodlands near Blea Tarn. Plus, how gorgeous is Kate!? I bloody love her hair and style ♡ these guys both look awesome and what a location!

Make-up for this shoot was done by Makeup By Leigh and Kate's hair was styled by Wedding Hair in the Lakes - they did a fab job! 

This choice of location and the couple's style really shows how unique engagement photos can be. I love it when couples wear their favourite band tees and take me to their favourite spots ♡ did you know that I offer a complimentary engagement shoot to each of my couples? I love the opportunity to get some incredible shots in a truly wonderful setting that means something to the couple ♡

I would LOVE to photograph a wedding in the Lake District. The following venues are pretty close to Blea Tarn so if you're thinking about getting married or considering eloping in the Lake District then you should check them out :) 

Cote How - this venue looks incredible! Surrounded on all sides by spectacular scenery and they even have their own lake! 

Another Place - ahhh this place looks amazing ♡ this venue is all about 18 acres of beautiful Lake District countryside and those Ullswater views!

Aquila - an intimate and quirky exclusive-use lakeside venue!  

Let me know if you're planning an awesome Lake District wedding and need a photographer ;)
