Why Lake District Weddings Are So Special

Mar 7, 2019 | Broadoaks News

There is a reason so many couples choose to get married in the Lake District each year, actually there are many reasons! The Lake District is a special place, beauty and history combine with some of the best wedding suppliers in the UK to make weddings here truly wonderful.

Lake District Weddings

All weddings are of course special, but what makes weddings in the Lake District so special is the connection to the natural beauty of the fells, the literary history including the romantic poets and the exceptional hospitality you can expect to receive across the lakes and especially at our unique wedding venue Broadoaks.

Lake District Wedding Photographs

Incredible memories and beautiful photographs are what you will have when you look back on your Lake District Wedding in the future so making the most of the stunning backdrop that the Lake District offers is one of the reasons this UNESCO World Heritage Site is such a popular place to wed.

Whether you choose to tie the actual knot in a local church or at our Country House, the photographs will be simply lovely. The Broadoaks Country House grounds are fairytale-like, with a beck running through the secluded gardens, the fells as a backdrop and lake Windermere in the distant. You can also head out further afield with your photographer to take more wedding photographs by your favourite lake or fell – this is particularly popular with keen walkers who may have fallen in love on these fells and want to capture their special place on their big day.

Lake District Touches

Broadoaks is a beautiful setting for your Lake District wedding, but as each couple is different, adding personal touches, decorations, and favours is what makes each wedding different and unique.

As you are in the Lake District, using the history, culture and natural beauty to inspire your wedding is easy, from local food used as wedding favours, such as Grasmere Gingerbread, or local liquors, to naming your tables after fells or meres. Linking in some excerpts from the Lakeland romantic poets is always a nice idea, as is using local flora and fauna in your table decoration and bouquet.

Wellies as vases, umbrellas as favours, and daffodils as decoration can all be included as a nod to the location you have chosen to be married in. Blending the Lake District with your own personal style will make your wedding truly special.

Your guests will also love coming to the Lake District to share in your Lake District wedding, a chance for them to celebrate with you and explore the stunning landscape before or after your big day. The Lake District is a year-round destination with each season having its own charm, so whether you choose summer, autumn, winter or spring, the Lakes will provide a special setting for your wedding day.

Lake District weddings are special because you have chosen to get married here. Amongst the stunning scenery, personal touches and family & friends, is a love story that we would be delighted to share with you.
