Our favourite things about summer weddings in the Lake District
The unspoilt natural beauty of the Lake District provides the most romantic of settings for weddings.
At Storrs Hall we have been honoured to host many special celebrations during the summer months. Those wonderful occasions are the inspiration behind this blog on our favourite things about summer weddings.
With outstanding scenery, deep blue lakes and tranquil rural locations the Lake District provides the perfect setting for outdoor wedding ceremonies. At Storrs Hall all those elements combine!
With Lake Windermere and surrounding fells as your backdrop, you can hold your ceremony in the romantic Garden Pavilion surrounded by your family and friends.
Drinks Reception on the lawn
Outdoor drinks receptions are memorable and a wonderful way of allowing guests to mingle. The south lawn at Storrs Hall gently sweeps down from the spacious terrace to the lake, providing a wonderful setting for your drinks reception. Whilst the sunshine sparkles off the water, you and your guests can relax and enjoy a chilled glass of Champagne, before sitting down to your wedding breakfast.
A Cruise on Windermere
Seen from the water the mountain landscape takes on an air of romantic tranquillity, and you can understand why the Lake District has captured the hearts of poets, artists and visitors for generations.
Give your guests a drinks reception with a difference, and charter a cruise on Windermere direct from Storrs Hall’s private jetty. Our wedding co-ordinators work with local companies and can help you find the perfect boat for your wedding party.
Stunning floral displays
How wonderful are summer flowers? The scents are heavenly and the opportunities for staging floral arrangements at Storrs Hall are endless. The romance of an arrangement over the archway in the Garden Pavilion is breath-taking.
British grown flowers are very much on trend this year, with roses, sweet peas, peonies and delphiniums creating beautiful looks.
The Lake District scenery is truly a dream backdrop for wedding photography. At Storrs Hall we are very lucky to enjoy uninterrupted views of Lake Windermere. Couples love to be photographed on the jetty and at the Temple of Heroes with the lake and mountains in the background.
