Although I don’t like winter (too cold, too dark, too grey), and know that autumn leads into this least-favourite of seasons, I can’t help enjoying it, harvesting fruits and fungi, enjoying the changing colours and light. The Lakeland hills can be particularly alluring at this time of year.
A few weeks ago, on a classically autumnal day in mid-October, I was delighted that my forest-textured glasses were part of a wedding photoshoot styled by Emma Tebbey for Yew Tree Farm Weddings in Coniston. Also involved in the shoot, among others, were Kevin Tickle, chef, Moorland Candles, Oubas knitwear and Feather & Wild (all contact details at the end of this post) so they were in very good company.
Yew Tree Farm, “over the hill” from us in Coniston, is a wonderfully romantic wedding venue. A traditional white Lake District farmhouse with barns, set against woods and a backdrop of hills with Herdwick sheep and a real sense of place, it would make the perfect setting for a very special day. The farm’s connections and commitment to local suppliers mean that an event held here would feel truly different, unique and individual.
