The Coniston hotel | wedding photographer | Claire & Paul Wedding Photographer, Yorkshire Dales

What an amazing day was had when we visited The Coniston Hotel as Claire & Paul’s Wedding Photographer. 


The weather had been wet and unrelenting for days before Claire & Paul’s big day, and although Paul the weatherman had promised sunshine, the weather was undecided as we pulled up at The Coniston Country park Hotel. This is a gorgeous countryside venue with amazing views and a beautiful lake for beautiful Wedding photographs. We couldn’t decide if it was going to chuck it down or erupt onto glorious sunshine.  

Danny was ready as Paul and the men arrived in style and so was the weather, the heavens opened for a shower, that was over as quickly as it arrived.  

Claire and her gorgeous bride squad were busy having hair & make up done. 

After the ceremony, the guests were treated to amazing canapés and a drink whilst we took a few photographs on the beautiful wedding terrace. With a view of the lake in the background, it’s the perfect backdrop for photographs. 

As a Wedding photographer, I get to see lots of lovely parts of Yorkshire, but The Coniston Hotel has a feeling of class and luxury whilst still managing to make you feel all warm & cosy. After a lovely personal ceremony, we braved the high winds for some photographs on the Wedding terrace and then Claire, Paul & I headed down to the lake to make the best of the beautiful day and our glorious surroundings. The view at the lake is stunning and feels quiet and intimate. It’s the perfect place for a couple to have some bridal portraits and a little quiet time for some amazing wedding photographs. 

After a beautiful meal and some very funny speeches, Claire, Paul and their guests danced the night away to a great band, 

If you’ve made it this far, and wonder what it’s like to have me as your Wedding photographer, Here’s a couple of behind the scenes shot from the day. Thanks to Danny for taking these pictures of me in action and for being a very stylish, multi light stand!!!!!! I have no recollection of what Claire & I were laughing at…….. 

Thank You – to the Coniston Country park hotel, to all Claire & Pauls friends and family for being so welcoming and good fun. Thanks to all the talented suppliers involved in the creation of a stunning wedding day:  

But most of all – Thanks to the new MR & MRS WILSON for asking me to be your Wedding photographer.  

It really was a fantastic day. Danny and I were honoured to be a small part of it. 

If you enjoyed my work, then I’d be honoured to receive your referral. If you know any couples thinking of a Wedding photographer, then please recommend my service. I make a great cuppa and am always happy to talk through details of their day.
