The day you get married is supposed to be one of the most memorable days of your life so, of course, the location is crucial. With beauty and intimacy at its core, the Lake District is the perfect location in which to marry, honeymoon, or simply enjoy a romantic getaway.
With sparkling lakes, peaceful meadows, and a whole load of northern charm, if you haven’t already considered the Lake District as your wedding destination, here are three reasons why you should.
With the popularity of staycations on the rise, it’s hardly a surprise that the Lake District is a popular honeymoon destination. Home to some of the most beautiful walks and scenery in Britain, the Lake District is the perfect place for any newlywed couple (and even their wedding guests!) to wind down after the nuptials.
It doesn’t matter if you fancy yourself as a pro hiker or if you just like to go for an afternoon stroll, there are plenty of walks available through the hills and fells. For the more adventurous, there’s plenty of exciting activities to be found in the Lakes, such as kayaking and other watersports.
It’s no secret that the scenery in the Lake District is spectacular, so starting married life amongst the tranquillity of rolling hills and serene waters is just what a stressed couple needs after months of wedding planning – and you don’t have to deal with the hassle of going abroad!
For the height of intimacy and class on your wedding day, the Lake District boasts a great many wedding venues which will match your needs perfectly, many of which will come fully equipped with their own wedding planners to take the pressure off you and your beau.
We spoke to one venue ho said: “We offer the ideal location in which to host your wedding: high-quality rooms, the distant but romantic sound of water rushing into Lake Windermere, and a well-versed team of staff who will ensure that your big day runs smoothly.”
The food you serve your guests on your wedding day will leave a lasting impression and what better place is there to find high-quality locally sourced food than the Lakes?
The Lake District is becoming more and more well known for its food in recent years and, home to Michelin-starred restaurants and top-notch locally sourced produce, the eateries in the Lakes leave nothing to be desired.
In fact, Lake District Country Hotels celebrate local farmers, fishermen, and butchers by using their produce in their dishes and their seasonal menus ensure that you’re eating the best and most fresh meals.
Similarly, the Lake District holds many food and drink specialties, including potted shrimp, sticky toffee pudding, Grasmere gingerbread, and Cumberland sausage, so you’ll never be short of a new local dish to try when you’re in the area.
