Enjoy the Perfect Wedding in the Lake District

It is hardly news that the Lake District is one of the finest settings in the UK for that romantic getaway, thanks to its rugged-yet-beautiful landscapes and its cosy hotels. In Lake Windermere alone, there are numerous places to whisk your loved one away and create a special haven for just the two of you. Hollywood star Renee Zellweger said that she fell in love with the region while filming the Beatrix Potter biopic Miss Potter back in 2006, because it was “extraordinarily beautiful and immaculate”. She wasn’t wrong!

Nice days for a Lakes wedding

Springtime is a particularly perfect time for lovers to visit the region, with lambs gambolling in the fields and Wordsworth’s famous daffodils spreading across the shores of the lakes themselves. For a better chance of sunshine, June, July and August are best – and the sunshine rising over the mountains and shining on the lakes is its own kind of heaven. For pure atmosphere the autumn mist that shrouds the peaks of Scafell Pike and its sisters is hard to beat. The Lake District makes for an unforgettable wedding at all times of the year.

Windermere hotels make wedding planning easy

Many people take advantage of the scenery and ambience to have their weddings in the Lake District, next to some of its most famous landmarks. Hotels in Windermere and other popular locations offer a great setting for the Big Day, including champagne in the bridal suite, spectacular grounds and buildings, themed activities for both guests and the happy couple themselves. They will also know all the best local florists, caterers and photographers – with no shortage of beautiful locations for the wedding snaps!

Spirit your guests away

Although the delights of Lake Windermere and the hotels of Windermere town are manifold – with water sports, day tours, trips to attractions such as the Breweries Watermill at Ings, or just walking the nearby fells – there is also ample opportunity to experience a more intimate wedding experience at some of the more secluded locations in the Lake District, such as the sleepy village of Ravenglass, the windswept remains of Hardknott Fort or the wildlife wonders of Haweswater reservoir. If your guests fancy the long trek to the Eden Valley, you can even be wed Druid-style in the Long Meg Stone Circle…
