Why choose a location wedding?

As much as they look forward to the day, and indeed the rest of their lives together, many people also come to dread wedding planning as the stress and demands of the upcoming day can quickly become all-consuming.

As a result, more and more people are finding that a location wedding can be just the solution. There are a number of reasons why it’s a good idea to choose a Lake District based wedding venue rather than a traditional venue in one’s home town:


There’s a reason why thousands of people every month return to the Lakes. As well as the walking, sports and hobbies, there is the scenery. Your wedding photographs will live long after the flowers have wilted and the cake has been eaten. They will be your memento of the day and to have them set against the stunning backdrop of Cumbrian scenery will mean that you have a set of images of unbridled beauty.

Less Stress

Whether you’re expecting guests to arrive from their own homes, or you’re simply accommodating them on the morning of your big day, it’s likely that the last thing you need is to cook, clean, tidy, or find emergency beds. Staying in a hotel for your wedding weekend means you get to relax and enjoy the proceedings without any of the housekeeping.

Holiday for Guests

Your guests deserve a relaxing time too. A hotel location means no driving to and from venues, and being pampered during their stay – and if they’re being looked after, they can concentrate on looking after you!
