Victoria and Toby’s wedding was a stunning affair – set in one of the most beautiful backdrops that I have yet had the pleasure of photographing.
I hadn’t even been aware of Coverwood Lakes‘ existence prior to Victoria and Toby approaching me to capture their big day.
I’m sure that many of you reading this are probably just as likely to not be familiar with it either?
Basically, it’s private farm based in Peaslake, and it boasts a couple of beautiful lakes within it’s grounds.
The main lake, ironically is the smaller of the two, is surrounded by an amazing collection of trees and stunning gardens which frame it’s boundaries beautifully.
It also boasts a fabulous covered stone walkway, which provides another rich visual focal point within the grounds – this instantly struck me upon my initial visit as an amazing element that would provide some striking portraits.
The owners of the venue obviously realised that the location of the lake and the amazing surrounds would provide a perfect backdrop for a wedding/event reception, and so rather cleverly invested in their own stylish marquee which they erect when required to provide the facilities to house a party without compromising or detracting from the surrounds.
I was extremely impressed, and it was a delight to have had the opportunity to capture Victoria and Toby’s wedding there.
We were fortunate on the day with the weather – as to be fair that is the only potential concern of such a venue. Whilst it did rain at certain points in the earlier part of the day, luckily it held firm in the latter stages of the afternoon and through into the evening so that one and all could truly enjoy the venue to it’s full capacity.
