Victoria & Peter’s Askham Hall Wedding

You may have already fallen in love with this venue after our little tour a few weeks back, but if you’re yet to discover the magical Askham Hall in Cumbria then you’re in for a treat!

Victoria & Peter married at this relaxed, informal setting and just a few subtle seasonal nods created this perfect summer scene, all captured by Tiree Dawson Photography.

Oh and spot the Gypsy Caravan where they signed the register! I’m a smitten kitten.

Notes from the Bride


We’re regular visitors to the Lake District and ideally wanted a wedding venue there, which was relaxed and not a ‘wedding factory’, and most importantly which allowed dogs! We discovered Askham Hall during the summer of 2013 and attended the inaugural wedding fayre later in October. We visited other venues after this, but no other venue lived up to it.

We tested the Hall out with an overnight stay and a meal in the restaurant. The food was absolutely divine and the staff were excellent and unobtrusive. Askham Hall is certainly an extremely relaxing, beautiful and peaceful place to stay. This stay sealed it as our wedding venue, and our decision was reaffirmed by their assistance with the wedding preparations and over the weekend of the actual wedding. The staff were outstanding!

The whole weekend was relaxed and an absolute pleasure, and whilst we were planned and organized to the nth degree, the calm and organized approach of all of the staff helped everything go off to plan, and calmed any last minute nerves over the organization of the day. Our guests also fell in love with the venue, they were impressed with the staff and most definitely the food.

The Flower Fairies of Askham Hall

Oh we have a treat for you today…

Hot off the back of my own styled shoot this week, I can’t tell you how much I love this creative process – from styling them to being inspired by fellow industry folks! Oh and this gorgeous styled shoot captured by Tiree Dawson Photography is a knock out!

Styled by Nina Marika at the ethereal Askham Hall, Megan from Typical Type is here with her account of the day…

the Flower Fairies of askham hall


This beautiful, carefully curated, Flower Fairy inspired shoot is the third shoot Tiree Dawson Photography and I have organised together – and so far one of our favourites. Being creative little bunnies, Tiree and I always have a little pot of ideas bubbling away and much as we try to contain them sometimes one just erupts and we just have to do something!

This fabulous shoot came about after Tiree had shot a couple of weddings at Askham Hall and decided it was just too gorgeous not to go back to. We thought about various themes, but in the end stumbled upon ‘Flower Fairies’ as a starting point. The ethereal grounds at Askham Hall are beautiful, and although spring had barely sprung, the place was magical.
