Askham Hall

Laura & Jono // Askham Hall Wedding Photography

Laura and Jono are THE perfect couple - just gorgeous inside and out. I'd been looking forward to their big day since their pre-shoot at Bassenthwaite back in April.  Laura and Jono chose their local church, St Mary's in Harrington, for their service, and it was heartfelt and personal, with hymns specially chosen to reflect Jono's career as a serving member of the Royal Navy. Laura's dad was peeling onions as he gave her away - it's a moment I absolutely adore!

Jono and Laura held their reception at the ever spectacular Askham Hall, hands down my favourite place to shoot. Have you seen it? It's just perfect! Acres of grounds with beautiful surroundings in the heart of Cumbria’s Lowther Estate. The gorgeous weather meant guests were treated to their drinks and canapés on the lawn at the front of the hall. Have I ever mentioned that Askham Hall have the BEST canapés?! I think I live for the honey mustard mini sausages on sticks.. We had a few rumbles of thunder shortly before everyone sat down for dinner, but it threw it down at the right time, and was actually a welcome relief from the blazing heat! 

These guys are just awesome, and it was a massive pleasure to be a part of their day.
