Armathwaite Hall Wedding - Lake District

Andy & Jemma

One word. Magical.

Sometimes I have to pinch myself. Life is a dream.

Andy & Jemma both live and work in Norwich and have a true love for the great outdoors. They've visited the Lake District many, many times, and Andy proposed to Jemma in Keswick last year. After some consideration, they decided the trip was worth it (for the family and friends), and booked Armathwaite Hall for their wedding day. And boy am I glad they did.

It was amazing, from start to finish. They are so humble, down to earth and friendly. As were the families and guests. A joy to be around.

They thanked *me* (including in the speeches) for driving 'all that way' to tell the story of their wedding. I consider it a gift to be given the opportunity to cover a wedding, the thanks was all mine to give.

Thanks Andy, Jemma, and everyone on the day, for being part of such a wonderful story. I'll never forget it!

Jemma explores the 'hidden' spiral staircase accessible from her room. The view from the top is spectacular.
