Coniston Hotel Wedding Photographer Skipton | Laura & Perry
Coniston Hotel Wedding Photographer. Laura and Perry were married on a very windy Friday in August – safe to say the confetti didn’t go exactly as planned 😀 This was my first wedding at The Coniston Hotel; it’s in such a beautiful location. Right in the middle of the Yorkshire Dales, with acres of it’s own countryside including a lake which we managed to drive down to after the ceremony.
I joined Laura and the girls as they were getting ready in one of the suites at the hotel. Bow & Blush were taking care of hair and make up, and I loved Laura’s boho hairstyle; lots of twists and plaits for texture, with fresh flowers in between. The bridesmaids dresses were a gorgeous pale peach which went perfectly with the bouquets full of peach and cream roses and soft grey dusty miller leaves. When everyone was ready I headed down to the Macleod’s Suite to see Perry nervously awaiting Laura’s arrival!
After the ceremony everyone headed to the conservatory for drinks as it was still pretty windy outside. We did manage to get everyone out for a quick blast of confetti, though most of it blew back towards the building, ha! Laura & Perry were keen to get some group photos with the lake as a backdrop, so we grabbed their immediate families and the wedding party and headed to the back of the hotel which overlooks the lake and the surrounding countryside. Afterwards Laura, Perry and I jumped into my Beetle Dusty (yes, he has a name) and nipped down to the lakeside for some relaxed shots of just the two of them.
We then headed back up the hill to the hotel, and I left the newlyweds to grab a drink and say some proper “hello’s” as I went in to photograph The Bannister Suite before it was trashed by the wedding breakfast! Laura & Perry had chosen to have speeches after the food, so once everyone was in the suite I left them alone for a couple of hours to relax and enjoy their meal.
It was a lovely warm evening in the end, so after the speeches all the guests headed out onto the terrace for more drinks and some garden games whilst the Bannister Suite was made ready for the evening do. Then it was back in for the first dance and a bit of a boogie (or a bogie, as my daughter delights in calling it!).
Thank you Laura & Perry for asking me to document your big day, I loved it! If you’re after a Coniston Hotel wedding photographer then please do contact me for more info and to tell me what you have planned! x
