2015 Lake District Wedding Photography Retrospective

So, that was 2015 and as has become an annual exercise, here is Ian Wood Photography’s year in weddings, I have attempted to order the photographs as chronologically as I can to make a single wedding day from lots and lots of weddings. It has genuinely been a brilliant year, great couples, suppliers and new venues to work, The Villa at Levens and the gorgeous Laura Ashley – The Belsfield.
From amazing sunshine, freezing winds, howling rain and snow, warm evenings with the scent of Lavender hanging in the air to cold nights with the Christmas Lights twinkling and the smell of Winter Pimms, lifts to the wedding in sunshine on the Lake to wading through floods in a Land Rover, I have had the most lovely couples and enjoyed every minute – like I often say, ” When I go to work everyone is smiling and happy (or Proscecco’d ” 🙂

2015 also saw the launch of ‘Wood & Co’ the commercial photography side of the business, I have always done quite a lot of commercial work and I am doing increasingly more fashion and interiors work which is brilliant for keeping the skills sharp!

I could waffle on for ages but this year the retrospective has more images than ever before, some are here because I just like them, this blog is my indulgence, some photographs will be a journey in themself and there will be lots going on in the single image, take from the images what you will – hopefully it will come together as one to form the story of a very beautiful day, just made up of lots of days!

If you are interested in having a chat about the photography for your wedding, then please do get in touch and we can arrange an appointment at my studio within ‘The Factory’ at Kendal, alternatively I am happy to conduct everything via email / FaceTime.

Take your time – enjoy and of course please do share the link on Facebook and Twitter 🙂

Best Wishes.

Ian
