augill castle wedding venue in cumbria

When Andrew first saw Zahara walk into his local, he was blown away. Luckily, his future wife felt the same and they decided to get married with a winter weddingat Augill Castle on the same date six years later!

It seemed like a natural decision for the couple to get married in the Lake District. Zahara – who is originally from Germany – came to England when she was younger with her mum and brother, where they ran a pub in Greystoke. She loved the scenery and now it holds special memories for her. After visiting Augill Castle for a minibreak with Andrew, they knew this was their perfect wedding venue.

Zarah and Andrew went for a purple and gold theme for their winter wedding. The ceremony was really relaxed, with guests sitting on comfy sofas as the couple exchanged their vows. Zarah looked lovely in her A-line dress with her hair styled by a friend. She describes herself as not much of a ‘girly girl’, so she chose a simple yet elegant dress for her day.

Afterwards, the guests enjoyed canapés and drinks from the self-service conservatory bar, whilst having good fun with the various false moustaches and glasses. Meanwhile, the couple’s little boy Robbie was more than entertained with his surprise gift of a Nerf gun!

Gothic Style

As it gets dark, the castle looks really dramatic all lit up. This was a great opportunity to get some shots of the couple and their guests outside. Despite the November temperatures, the rain held off and the sky was a perfect dark blue for the photos. The building has a very gothic feel to it, especially in winter.  Judging by their skull-themed guest book and purple colour scheme, I think it suited Zarah and Andrew perfectly!

After dinner and speeches in the dining room, the couple decided to add a personal touch by having their own playlist for the evening entertainment. Their first dance was I Wanna Grow Old With You, from The Wedding Singer, very apt!

Congratulations Zarah and Andrew on a really lovely day!
