“Simon is a wonderful photographer and captured some beautiful moments during our wedding. He is very easy to work with and made the whole experience very enjoyable.”

Lake District Elopement Weddings

Photographing elopement weddings is incredibly special, such a privilege and so much fun - I love them! With no family or guests to worry about, the day is entirely yours, so there are no limits on how you spend your special day or on the photographs you want to have - the choice is entirely yours! Whatever your reason for wanting an intimate 'just the two of us' wedding, I'd love to capture the day for you - your professional wedding pictures will be the only way that family, friends and future generations can become connected with and celebrate your special day with you - aside from a few selfies or mobile phone photos taken by the venue's staff .

LIVE stream your wedding

For the best of both worlds, why not LIVE stream your 'just us' wedding ceremony for your family and friends? LIVE streaming services start at just £99 including a full HD recording for you to keep forever - you can find out more on my LIVE Streaming page. There's no need for your remote guests to have an account, sign up for anything or download an app - they can just click a link and be with you on any Internet connected device.

For some couples, the whole idea is to keep things simple with the minimum of formality, fuss and bother, in which case I can be there to capture your day quietly and unobtrusively as it unfolds. And it's no problem if you're not that comfortable in front of the camera - neither am I, so I know exactly what it's like and how to put you at ease to get some beautiful, natural photos that will capture your magical day forever.

For other couples, an elopement wedding is about casting traditions aside and doing things your own way. If that sounds like you, then I can be there to help you capture the uniqueness of your day to enjoy for years to come. And if that includes going off site from your wedding venue to make the most of the beautiful Lake District scenery, then that's no problem, I can help you find spots for environmental portraits that will wow your family and friends or just be there to document your day as you enjoy a lake cruise, fell walk, adrenalin-fuelled activity or any other of the myriad of fabulous things there are to do in the Lake District!
