Wedding at The Coniston Hotel Country Estate and Spa, Skipton - An Intimate Wedding - Winston's Barn

On Valentine's Day I had the pleasure of being Coniston Hotel's wedding photographer for Jane and Martin's intimate wedding. With less than 20 guests, Winston's Barn was the natural choice for this small wedding party. The 17th century barn with beautifully rugged bare stone walls and exposed beams, softly lit with large LOVE letter lights provided the perfect ceremony and reception location for the couple and their families. As a non-traditional wedding photographer I often meet couples who are having their wedding without the usual traditions and Jane and Martin were planning a very personal day. An intimate wedding day suited them perfectly, surrounded by the love of their close families, they chose to have an elegant and cosy wedding at Coniston Hotel Country Estate. Winston's Barn was gracefully adorned with berry-coloured wedding flowers with a wild and natural twist, by the utterly wonderful Emma of Emma Weddings and Events for the small ceremony, with more floral arrangements waiting in the wings to fill the barn for the evening wedding breakfast.


After joining their guests for a celebratory glass of champagne in the airy conservatory, we took a walk together to capture Jane and Martin enjoying all that The Coniston Hotel Estate has to offer. With a concierge service, getting around the expansive grounds was a dream and I cannot recommend this highly enough.
