East Lodge Wedding Photos
East Lodge wedding
We’ve not been to an East Lodge wedding for a while now so it was lovely to come back to Rowlsey near Matlock in the heart of the Peak District for this Spring wedding. East Lodge is a beautiful hotel wedding venue with accommodation, bar and restaurant and it’s in a lovely spot for a bit of sight seeing too being only a few miles from Chatsworth.
A 1920s feel
Lisa & Christian had chosen a 1920s theme for the day, with touches of black and gold. Lisa looked gorgeous in a gown from Debenhams with a gorgeous hair-do from Sarah at Pin Up Curl. Christian opted for a very dapper suit with gold bow tie. The couple also made their own wedding cake!
The outside ceremony
One of the best things about getting married at East Lodge is the fact that you can get married outside! On this day in April it was a little chilly but the rain held off and they were able to make the most of it, they had lovely registrars and had a great fun filled marriage ceremony. Afterwards it was time for drinks and canapes on the lawn in front of the hotel. We took the chance to do a few family photos whilst getting photo-bombed by the children!
Making the most of the gardens
East Lodge is located in the heart of Derbyshire in the Peak District, so the views are fantastic and we wanted to make the most of these along with the lovely gardens and water features at the venue. Christian & Lisa were fab even though it was pretty chilly, we had a little wander around the gardens before it was time to go in for dinner.
Lisa & Christian are a lovely couple, they had a intimate, relaxed and fun filled day – so full of laughter. We had a great time with them all and here are just a few of our favourite images from the day….
