A Wintertime Wedding

Where the coldest months bring you the warmest of ceremonies by Lake Windermere.

Choose the Lakeside Hotel and an elegant relaxed wedding celebration that is not tied to traditions but a venue that is rather a lovely dose of romantic luxury and refinement in equal measures.  Create a day that is just perfect with their wedding planners, who add those personal touches of charm to make it simply special.  Maybe little touches of seasonal greenery and winter blooms from their grand estate or bespoke cocktails and fireworks in the evening sky.  Whatever specifics you may have, delight in the knowledge that the Lakeside will take care of everything.  With tailor-made all-inclusive wedding packages to select from and a lovely country wedding feel, this hotel is ever popular amongst couples.  Embrace your big day as it unfolds by the pretty Lake Windermere and be blown away by the beauty of it all.

Small Weddings   30 Guests

Decide upon a Small Intimate Wedding by the Lake for a visually stunning and unique personal gathering with your chosen few.  Find yourself on the landscaped lawn with the winter’s crisp air and the calm Windermere Lake as your idyllic backdrop for your ceremony.  Then your stylish drinks reception will smoothly follow with chilled champagne and delicious canapes.  Your guests can enjoy a short private cruise on the Lake before the four-course celebration meal is served in the immaculately prepared Oak Room.  Spectate the view as you dine along with your fine wine, fresh coffee, scrumptious petit fours and a slice of the much-anticipated wedding cake.

The Oak Room   40 – 70 Guests

Your ceremony will sit happily on Lakeside’s famous grounds by the water’s edge, weather permitting, but if rain does make an appearance the Conservatory is a pretty alternative to take your vows before your loved ones.  Afterwards, enjoy the warmth and intimacy of the exquisite Oak Room overlooking the breath-taking enchantment of Lake Windermere.  With its open fire and grand interior, this room will accommodate the most distinguished wedding breakfast.  The bespoke wedding menu is expertly designed with your recommendations in mind, so the dining experience can be just as unique as you are.  The views, the food and the personal service from the staff is the reason why the Lakeside Hotel is one of the best wedding venues in the Lake District. 

The Windermere Suite   40 + Guests

For a larger wedding opt for The Windermere Suite that is just a short walk from the hotel, where your ceremony will be held, your spectacular drinks reception will be hosted and where you will take those captivating photographs by the Lakeshore.  A private Lake cruise will depart from the hotel’s jetty for champagne and canapes for all your guests to devour.  Then they will indulge in a passionately prepared wedding breakfast at the suite and drinks on the terrace.  Delight in an evening of bespoke entertainment and savour in the night time snacks.  This suite is ideal for larger groups, due to its spacious design and separate zones for dining, entertaining, relaxing and for the little ones in the wedding party to be themselves.

Just the Two of You

If all you need is just the two of you, then choose to get married at one of the Lakeside’s luxurious and private Exclusive Lodge Suites.    Take your vows on your personal terrace and charming gardens by the Lake.  Sip champagne by the winter light and celebrate with a dining experience of your choice, as you relive your magical day together.  These lodges are the perfect romantic hideaway that benefit from a spacious bedroom, lounge area and bathroom with your very own tranquil sauna to relax and unwind in.  Choose from either the Simply Package with return cruise tickets to Bowness and witnesses if required.  The Ultimate Package, which is the same as the Simply Package but with an Afternoon Tea treat on your terrace, a bottle of Ruinart champagne, personalised glasses and a five-course bespoke wedding menu with perfectly selected wines to compliment.  Or maybe The Lake District Experience Package is just right for you with the same encounters as the Ultimate Package but with the added extra two nights breakaway, a mini spa day with the Aveda Team, a lovely Lakeside lunch and one-hour tailor-made treatment.  You will also enjoy private access to the pool, for a twilight swim, and the hotel’s chauffeur will drive you to a restaurant destination of your choice for one evening of your stay.
