A beautiful location in the Lakes is Cote How, a stunning venue for smaller, intimate weddings and elopements. Situated in the heart of the Lake District it is a beautiful historic house which has some of the most beautiful grounds including forest and rivers. Lara and Ryan chose this location as they wanted a smaller wedding having flown their friends and family over from South Africa. They chose the Lake District and specifically Cote How because of its raw and natural beauty but also for its access to stunning grounds all around it for their photos.



Small Wedding in the Lake District

They chose the gorgeous barn for their ceremony and for their wedding breakfast and we explored the grounds for their wedding photos. The River Rothay runs through the estate and we made sure to get some amazing images by this stunning view. We then headed to the lake for a river cruise around Windermere with all the guests to enjoy some more amazing views. There were no speeches or first dance just a day of adventuring in the lakes with friends and family, what a day!

I have made a best Lake District Wedding Venues guide and Proud to say that Cote How is one venue that I consider fantastic and very worthy of consideration for a smaller intimate wedding or elopement in the Lake District. I have also made an eloping guide to the Lake District which you can see here.
