Rachel and Mike's Lake District Paddock Barn Wedding

Rachel and Mike brought their friends and family together in the beautiful Lake District countryside at Paddock Barn earlier this year.

The day started with some dubious looking clouds but in the end we were treated to a beautiful early summers day, with an amazing golden hour which we had to nip out and take advantage of. Paddock Barn is one of my favourite Lake District wedding venues so it was lovely to see it in all it’s summer glory.

The day began with bridal prep at lodges within the grounds of the Swan Inn, Newby Bridge.
Rachel’s gown was beautiful and simple, paired with the cutest pair of wedding shoes I have ever seen. (I took a lot of photos of those shoes!)

I then headed to Paddock Barn ahead of the bridal party where the guests were arriving. Mike and his groomsmen were looking very chilled and enjoying the sunshine whilst they greeted their guests.

One thing I love about Paddock Barn is how intimate the wedding ceremonies always are there, with plenty of personal touches such as a reading by Mike’s Dad and a song performed by Rachel’s maid of honour who had the loveliest voice.
