Wedding photography at the Waterhead Hotel, Coniston, Cumbria for Angela and Tony on 17 September 2010
An absolutely stunning location for a wedding venue, the Waterhead Hotel stands just a few yards from the shore of Coniston Water. Arriving the day before the wedding gave us a chance to have a look round for locations for photographs and we weren't disappointed. It was also a pleasure to get acquainted with the staff, in particular the wedding co-ordinator, Laura, who couldn't do enough for us. Thank you Laura for making the wedding run so smoothly and for looking after us so well.
After photographing Angie's accessories and her gorgeous dress, which she had designed herself and which was one of a kind, we met up with the boys and enjoyed some time with them around the beautiful grounds of the hotel before returning to Angie a few minutes before the ceremony.
All the bridal party were up for a laugh...
And so was Angie - she looked amazing!
The jetty is just a short walk from the hotel and a fantastic location for romantic photographs - beautiful!
The plans for the wedding were quite unique and very personal to Angie and Tony. They had organised an hour's boat trip on Coniston Water for all their guests and we managed to hitch a ride too. It was really enjoyable and also fascinating listening to the skipper telling everyone some of the history surrounding the location, in particular about Donald Campbell and Bluebird.
Our sincere thanks to the new Mr and Mrs Thickbroom for giving us the opportunity to capture their amazing, fun wedding day in such a picturesque and beautiful location.
If you are members of Angie and Tony's family or one of their friends, please leave a comment - thank you.
