{Emily & Phil McDonnell} Brantwood & Coniston Hall {13 July 2013}

This summer we have been lucky, we have had some beautiful weather and Emily & Phil’s Wedding happened to fall on one of those beautiful days.

I first met  Emily & Phil about a year before their wedding when they initially booked me. Hearing about their wedding plans I knew I was in for a treat. We arranged a Pre Wedding Shoot a few months before their big day up in the Duddon Valley with their dog  Buzz and before you knew it their wedding day had arrived….

Emily & Phil got married at Brantwood in Coniston. The view from the room where Emily and her Bridesmaids were getting ready was amazing!

With the ceremony starting at 3pm, Emily and the girls had already been down to the lake for a swim in the morning and had a relaxing lunch before starting to get ready. 

It was a brilliant afternoon with lots of fun and laughter. All the girls made me feel so welcome too!

Emily looked stunning as she met her Dad for the first time that day before walking down the isle together.

The service was beautiful. With the room decorated with wild flowers from the gardens, Emily & Phil began their vows in front of their family & friends. 

Officially Husband and Wife! 

Emily had organised a vintage bus for the wedding transport. It was a great special touch to their day for all the guests. 

With the stunning backdrop of Coniston Water in the background it was time for some family and friends photos. 

With the beautiful evening light on the water it was time to board the Gondola for a cruise to their evening reception. 

Everyone loved the trip, with happy and smiling faces all round it was a perfect time to get some natural photographs of everyone. 

Around 7.30pm we arrived at Coniston Hall to be greeted by the evening guests. A BBQ and Buffet awaited and Emily & Phil had decorated the hall with a lovely vintage touch! 

As we captured the last of the summer sun I took Emily & Phil off for some photographs together. 

Emily & Phil’s day was so relaxed. I love this photo of them both sitting on the jetty together, for me it’s one that sums up the day well! 

Eventually the temptation got all too much and the swimming shorts appeared!!

With ULPHA590 bringing in the evening entertainment it was time for Emily & Phil’s first dance! 

I’m going to end with another photo which I think sums up this wedding… the happiness and emotion say it all! 

I LOVED photographing Emily & Phil’s Wedding. Thank you so much for choosing me to capture your special day. I hope you enjoy looking back through your photographs for many many years to come. 

I would also like to say a special thank you to all of their guests who made me feel so welcome throughout the day. 

I hope you are enjoying your honeymoon and I look forward to designing your album when you return. 

Best Wishes
