Winter Wedding photography at Askham Hall

A day of gorgeous wedding photography at Askham Hall in Cumbria is not something many Lake District wedding photographers would say no to! Particularly when it is a styled shoot set up by the amazing team at Aspire Photography Training and Tebbey and Co. 

Emma Tebbey of Tebbey & Co was inspired by the muted colours found inside Askham Hall.  Wanting to produce a scheme that is sympathetic to the colours of the house and the availability of flowers during the winter season she chose soft pastels with pops of blue. 

Emma’s defining mantra for this design was “Everything links to conditions, flowers and fruit available and at their peak at this time of year.”

The subdued tones and soft styling of the gorgeous Jesus Peiro wedding dress and vintage hair accessories together with gorgeous details, flowers, rings and champagne coupes all added to the laid-back vintage charm of a bye gone era.

So, you’re interested in getting married at Askham Hall which must mean you’re interested to know where are good places to have your photograph taken too right?  You’ll be pleased to know that Askham Hall has loads of places that will provide you with beautiful imagery. 

Imagine yourself walking down the grand staircase, the train of your wedding dress trailing romantically behind.  Stunning shots can be captured from above and below.  The staircase might even provide a great place for your group shot in case the weather is less than kind! 

The rest of the house is equally full of beautiful old details such as the library where our bridal portraits have been shot.  There are plenty of outdoor places in gardens, including the old gypsy caravan on the lawns and the gorgeous kitchen gardens we’ve used in this shoot.

Grooms Prep

Grooms Prep

One often overlooked area of a wedding is that of the groom and his preparations on the day.  A few years ago very little thought was put into the grooms attire, as long as the colours co-ordinated with the bridal party everything was fine and images largely focused on the bride.  Fast forward a couple of years and grooms are putting much more importance on the wedding being their day too and using this to express their individuality and personality.  More time is now being taken documenting the grooms preparation from getting dressed, checking that his tie is straight, waistcoat fastened, and watch is on to those precious / hilarious moments when he is helped with his button hole.  Here are a just a selection of images grooms portraiture.  Enjoy.

Just a pair of shoes??

Just a pair of shoes??

As a Groom, many of your decisions tend to be focused on making your bride feel as relaxed and reassured as possible. However, this month’s blog-post is looking at an important, but oft overlooked item in the Groom’s itinerary, shoes. Although your feet will be the last thing you’ll be thinking of on the big day, its something you want to select, and then forget about. So, here are 5 things to consider:

Comfort: Obvious, but hugely important. The last thing you need is for a load of blisters when the day is only halfway done. Imagine trying to dance til the wee hours when your feet feel like someone’s jabbing then with a rusty nail!!

Wear them in: Closely linked to point 1. You have to be confident that you’ve picked a pair of shoes that are comfortable to be worn for long hours. You’ll be in them for around 13-15 hours (that’s if you’ve picked a late morning/mid-day ceremony). Break them in round the house, wear them when you’re sat in front of the tele, just get them on and wear them. Believe me, this will pay dividends come your special day.

Colour: What do you go for? An ultra-fashionable bright, bold colour that screams 2017, or a classic, timeless black pair that will not only look unassuming and un-noticed on the day, but can be worn for years to come? Only you can decide that, but bear in mind that the photos of the wedding will last a lifetime, shoes may only be worn on the day…

Style: With men paying more attention to their style, designers have responded, so now you see a multitude of styles when you walk through your local department store. And the same decisions need to be made, do you go for a classic pair of leather brogues, or a more elaborately designed fashion statement containing 8 different colours and 14 differing materials?

Suit: Goes without saying, but what colour suit have you chosen? If you’ve gone for a modern slim-cut blue suit, then a pair of brown leather winkle-pickers will look great. But if you’ve gone for the traditional morning suit, then the brown just won’t do.

Like every decision that needs to made for a wedding, careful consideration and personal choices will be the deciding factor, but hopefully this post will give you a few things to think about.

Good luck!
