Glenridding House Wedding Photography


We’re looking forward to our next wedding at Glenridding House, Ullswater. That’s because it’s nearly time for Tanya & Simon’s wedding. They booked us directly having seen that we are the approved wedding photographer for Glenridding House. Glenridding House provides a stunning & unique wedding venue. It’s an iconic location because of it’s unique position on the shore of Ullswater. There’s a lovely gazebo in the garden. Stephen, the owner, built it. The gazebo is ideal for wedding ceremonies. The weather forecast is looking good with plenty of sunshine.


This magnificent Grade two Listed  villa was originally built in around 1815 with its unique fine cast iron latticed arched balcony in a truly stunning location. It was built for  Reverend Askew who married a Storrs lady. Documents show the house was used as a guest house by Mrs Dalton and Robert Bownass and it continued in this guide for most of the 19th and 20th centuries. The Dolly steamboat was recovered in the 1960s  moored in front of Glenridding House, it sank ther in a storm, this first historic steamboat is now in the Windermere steam boat museum.


Charles Darwin stayed at Glenridding House and came with members of his family for a five week holiday in June 1881. As his daughter Henrietta wrote of the holiday:

“it was an especial happiness to my mother for the rest of her life to remember her little strolls with my father to the side of the lake. I have a vivid picture in my mind of the two often setting off alone together for a certain favourite walk by the edge of some fine rocks going sheer down into the lake”
