Broadoaks Country House wedding
Wow, it was hot today!
David & Jade’s wedding earlier this month was only my second visit to Broadoaks Hotel in Troutbeck, Windermere. And even though it’s only my second visit I felt at home straight away, its such a fantastic venue for a wedding and photography. There are lots of features including a swing for two people outside, gardens, a fountain, stunning views and a beautiful window in the sitting room along with a piano.
The site dates back to the mid 19th century but was added to in the late 19th by Dr Charles and Fanny Hodges. It was built for a rich military man to reside during his summer breaks and was approximately resided in for six weeks of the year in its first forty years of life. It was sold in the late 1890’s to Dr Charles and Fanny Hodges. They gave the house a new lease of life by building the music room with its acoustic barrel vaulted ceiling and delicate plaster relief work designed by William Morris. This is where the original Bechstein Grand Piano purchased by Charles Hodges sits today having been recovered from Leeds in 1993.
When I arrived Jade was busy getting the smaller details ready with mum, and dad was finishing the cake decorations off while the bridesmaids were setting up the sweet table. The rest of the day was fantastic, we even has a piñata which was fun.
Another fantastic Cumbria wedding at one of my favourite venues – Broadoaks Country House.
