Ele + Sam’s Coniston Coppermines Wedding in the Lake District

A phenomenal backdrop to a beautiful couple within the Coniston Coppermines, and a black Vivienne Westwood dress.

“I love all of the softness of you
The wild abandon of your telescopic yawn
As your chins ripple
On the underside of your punk face
I love that you encourage gentleness with your gentle nature and your steadying influence” – Eleanor

Absolutely adored the vows read by Ele to Sam during the ceremony. Such beautiful words to describe her love for him especially his telescopic yawn! Ele you are a wordsmith and an incredible human 🧡 It was such a pleasure capturing this one against the stunning backdrop that is Coniston. The Coniston Copper mines are an eclectic venue, with outhouses, ancient machinery, waterfalls and mineshafts – a very unique venue that you can do pretty much anything with.

Ele had bought her wedding dress four years prior and it was worth the wait. A breathtaking Vivienne Westwood dress with both Ele and Sam’s Mum’s names embroidered in the veil 🧡

The plan was to eat, drink and party hard into the night. After a brief and flamboyant outfit change by the bridal party they all emerged sequinned to the max ready to dance into the night. We can thanks Rosa Bloom for the epic disco outfits. The day exceeded all of the above and New Power Soul Club were electric, the lead singers voice is so good i thought it was a recording!⚡️ Thanks for having me along for all the fun!!
