We’re celebrating the best of Cumbria in the first series of this regular round up of our esteemed Guest List.
Planners and pencils at the ready.
Camilla Lucinda Photography
As far as capturing celebrations go – this girl CAN. Wedding storytelling at its finest from one of the most dynamic fashion and wedding photographers in the North.
“I feel fortunate to be able to capture real moments that pass by us within seconds. Whether you have Louboutins on, or flip flops because those designer heels are killing your feet – I’m never striving for perfection in an image, but more the story.
Your beautifully unique love story, of your day, told through a lens.” – Camilla
Julia Tasker Bridal
Cumbria’s luxury bridal boutique, flying the flag for inimitable British-made bridal fashion. Operating on a one-to-one, appointment only basis, this heavenly bolthole offers brides a fabulous service matched by an extensive range of luxury British labels, such as Sassi Holford and Caroline Castigliano, as well as premium mother-of-the-bride and groom outfits.
What’s more, Julia has recently launched her new ‘Draw the Dress’ service, which gives brides a special memento to remember their big day by forever. Receive a bespoke hand-drawn fashion illustration of your wedding gown – a gift for you, capturing a very precious moment in time. It’s the little things.
“I work closely with each of my British designers to achieve the perfect dress for each individual bride, to their specific requirements. Additionally, I also offer a ‘Couture Service’, where a bride can have her dream dress designed and made for her to her requirements by me here at the boutique.” – Julia
Simon Vogt Toastmaster
This award-winning wedding host will take your celebration to a new level of professionalism as well as injecting a great dose of fun by literally lighting up the party!
“I’ve spent years gaining experience and perfecting my service. My aim is simple, I want to make sure yours is the best wedding you’ve ever been to and the best wedding you’ll ever go to.
“I’ll do that by meeting you and getting to know your needs and expectations, regular support through consultations and comprehensive planning assistance, on the day coordination and by hosting a brilliant party!” – Simon
White Orchid Print and Design
Based in Cumbria, White Orchid Print & Design are the curators of stunning Wedding stationery. Sarah Edmondson is the founder, and has a palpable passion for all things creative.
Attention to detail is of high importance to Sarah, from the initial ideas to the final execution. Creating solutions that showcase illustration skills combined with the knowledge of design acquired over the past few years is what gives her studio its edge.
Having researched materials and processes religiously, you can expect quality from the word go – think beautiful gold leaf embellishments and silk bow ties.
Last but not least, we have Askham Hall on our luxe list for Cumbrian weddings. Based in Penrith, this stylish venue caters for all styles and budgets and is blow-you-away beautiful.
“We can provide a really special setting, luxurious accommodation, exquisite food and a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.
“Within the grounds of Askham Hall, our charming Grade II listed Bank Barn has been sympathetically converted into a first class wedding venue with a capacity for up to 156 guests seated and up to 200 guests for the evening.” – Askham Hall
