We both really liked the barn setting! Was just a beautiful area what with the drapes and twinkling lights. And I liked how we broke out to the main house for the drinks reception. Also we had people traveling over from Yorkshire so having the rooms were a major plus.
How did Craig propose?
Craig proposed in June 2017 we were staying in Keswick lodge retreat for my birthday. The day before my birthday we went on a lovely walk with maya our dog. And over the amazing views of Bassenthwhaite lake he popped the question. Was a perfect spot and the weather was beautiful.
Do you have a favourite memory from the whole day?
Honestly the whole day was just amazing and truly was the best day. If I had to choose a favourite part was when we walked back down the isle as a married couple! Was the first time I really saw everyone and was just a special moment. Craigs favourite was coming back in to the wedding breakfast as mr and Mrs latham. Shout out to Alex who did all our music, as he suggested playing 99 problems by jay z when we came in! And we loved it having a little dance coming in. Craig now has that as his ring tone when I phone him haha!!
We chose you as We loved your films!!! The edit of them is like a movie. We knew you would capture the moments we wouldn’t have seen, giving us a different view of our day. And when we met you, you were so friendly and put us both at ease. Would definitely recommend you!!!!
Any advice for a couple planning their wedding?
I would say it’s in the planning and organising. I had lists coming out of my ears! But helped to keep me calm and not stressed. But other then that enjoy it and when it comes To closer to the day don’t be stressing about the little details! Go with the flow.
“Omg we can’t tell you how much we love it, not that we were ever in any doubt we would. Thanks so much for capturing our day so perfectly… we know you were rushed off your feet flying solo! It was so lovely having you as part of our day, we feel like you’re part of the crew now and we hope we see you at every wedding in our group”

Why did you choose Bartle Hall for your wedding?
We loved Bartle Hall from the first time we went to view it. We loved the two rooms and the idea that we could have our ceremony and wedding breakfast / evening reception in different parts of the hotel. We loved the Balmoral for the evening as everything is all in one place so everybody can be together.
How did Graham propose? (gushy details allowed)
Aw, he proposed on my birthday in Iceland (the country, not the shop 😂) just as it had turned midnight… we were absolutely freezing cold after being stood outside for 3 hours waiting for the northern lights to appear but not even a twinkle! Haha.
If you had to pick a favourite moment, what would it be?
It’s so hard to choose a favourite moment, I loved the ceremony and the speeches!
I knew we were having you before we were even engaged, I saw a friends video (Nikki and Darren Parkinson) and from that moment I said if I ever got married, I had to have you and you were the first thing we booked after the venue!
Congratulations Elly & GG, thanks for inviting us x
A few personal highlights from this wedding……Watching the very brave guests have the group shot whilst it was hailing (very funny) Mr & Mrs B’s choreographed first dance, the very eager lady leaping for the bouquet and one of our favorite bands filling the dancefloor during the evening reception 🙂
Congratulations Sara & Chris, thanks for inviting us x
The Facebook version will be available here shortly.
Even though i have quite a few more teasers to release, this is my last before Christmas so let’s make it a good one 🙂
Jess & Andy were so much fun to be with on their wedding, very relaxed & Jess did not stop smiling allll day!
The moment i arrived at Bartle Hall i spied AJ & Ol from Foxley Photography , Jason from Flower Design, Dawn at Creative Events, Duncan Fisher Hair and many many more so i knew this was gonna be a great day!
As you can see in the teaser, the masks from their Stag & Hen doo’s made an appearance and i have to take full responsibility for that after an Instagram conversation with Jess prior to their BIG DAY.
It was great to see Jason Rea working his magic at the evening reception 🙂
Whilst filming the speeches, i briefly looked out of the window and said to myself “is that a formula 1 car they are unloading”?
I have never seen a bride walk so fast up the aisle with her dad (Happy Days) on her wedding day! I had a lot of fun working with Alex from Fairfield Photography (we were 2 camera nerds babbling about lenses all day) and as mentioned above, F1 Driver Experience provided a lot entertainment with their TopGear challenge’s.
Bartle Hall is still one of my favorite venues in the area and was a great setting for Paul & Vickys big day.
A brilliant day for Mr & Mrs Real Cabo and a pleasure to shoot such a nice wedding 🙂
