The vintage-themed real wedding that we’re sharing today features spectacular views, a relaxed and rustic vibe and a big ol’ slice of pretty.
As well as being mesmerised by the beauty of this wedding it’s also given me a new life goal: to taste a big ol’ slice of pink lemonade cake. Yes, you read that right – pink lemonade cake! What could be more wonderful on an autumnal Tuesday morning?

sabine says: We got engaged at home on Christmas Eve, 2014. Steven cooked us a three course meal and told me that I could open one of my Christmas gifts a day early. I was so excited that I couldn’t wait until we’d finished so he let me open it after the first course. As I tore off the wrapping paper I saw a ring box. He projected a picture of our little boy onto our television screen with the words “Say yes, Mummy” above it, then he got down onto one knee.
Steven has always been one for grand romantic gestures but, as this was our first family Christmas with our six-month-old son Thomas, it really was just perfect. I was quite unwell following complications after childbirth so the fact he wanted to marry me at such a difficult time really meant the world to me; I knew he would be there for us, for better and for worse.
Our wedding date was Sunday 14th August 2016. We chose this date because we love summer, we wanted a weekend and all the Saturdays that month were booked up so we decided a Sunday would work really well.
We got married at The Inn on the Lake: a beautiful hotel with the most spectacular views overlooking Lake Ullswater, in Glenridding, in the Lake District. We love the Lake District, it’s a very special place for us and we love how we can drive an hour-and-a-half from our hectic city life in Manchester and feel a world away with breath-taking views and a more relaxed pace of life.
We were lucky that the weather allowed us to get married outside under the gazebo overlooking the lake. There was also a separate building for the evening reception with a recent and very impressive extension called The Ramblers Bar and Candleroom. We loved the fact that, although our wedding took place at one venue, there were different buildings, sections and huge, stunning grounds.
Theme-wise, our wedding theme was a romantic summer wedding with a vintage vibe. We knew that the surroundings of our wedding venue would provide a romantic feel, plus I love anything and everything vintage and I’m incredibly girly.

For us today’s wedding sums up romance and elegance perfectly.
Choosing one of the dreamiest destinations for their big day, the Lake District, Tracy and Carl already had the wow factor in their hotel setting and so simply added beautiful touches in blush pink and ivory to bring their wedding day vision together.
Just looking at the gorgeous images makes us feel relaxed and loved up – stunning!

tracy says: We visited New York last December and Carl proposed at the top of the Empire State Building. It was so romantic!
We got married on Friday 11th September 2015. The date was one of only a handful still available for our venue when we booked in January of this year, and as we didn’t want to wait too long we booked there and then.
We got married at the beautiful Inn on the Lake, Glenridding, Ullswater. We live in the Lake District and there are so many studding wedding venues available. We knew we wanted to get married outside and the Inn on the Lake was the first venue we visited. As soon as we saw it we fell in love and knew that it was where we wanted to have our special day. The lakeside gazebo is licensed for civil ceremonies and the views over the lake are just breath-taking.
