ELOPE TO THE LAKES

Elopement wedding packages for just the two of you – Perfect for couples wishing to tie the knot in a simple but romantic way, in a special place, and sometimes done in secret!  With couples travelling to the Lake District from over the UK and abroad, including your elopement wedding within a planned holiday is often the easiest way to keep that secret!  A true elopement wedding is usually arranged with just a few months to go, bringing out the spontaneity in you! 

Our elopement wedding couples have often been together the longest (25 years is not uncommon),  and tend to be those wishing to “marry” rather than have a big “wedding”.

All of our Elopement weddings are totally relaxed and intimate, with a classic legal ceremony in a beautiful destination (indoors or out), with fully exclusive use,  guaranteeing total privacy for that extra romantic feel.

Our three Licensed Ceremony Spaces...

Recent trends towards eloping in remote and wild places has seen a shift in demand for these adventurous style elopements. To be legally married in England you still require a licensed venue, and Cote How offers you both a stunning venue set in the heart of a world heritage location – The English Lake District – with amazing views from every angle. We also have a choice of licensed ceremony spaces, to reflect your personality and style.

Our licensed spaces are beautifully designed to be a cosy and loving space for two and can be indoor or outdoor depending on the time of year and your preferences:

Real Elopement wedding Review...
Karen & Andy's Elopement

The best day of our lives bar none!
After being together for 12 years we decided to have a secret elopement wedding. We had fantastic support and advice from Caroline throughout which led to a totally stress-free wedding. Caroline called the day before the wedding to chat and to suggest an outdoor venue in the Barn which we were really pleased about. We got there on the day, and whilst we knew roughly the views, we were absolutely blown away by how stunning it was. Caroline and Steve left us to relax outside listening to some of our favourite music, at which time the buzzard decided to join us in an adjoining tree. The ceremony was perfect, and afterwards, I put my walking boots on and we wandered down to the lake for some amazing pictures. Then a quick walk over the bridge to catch the open-topped bus back to Ambleside and a few well-deserved glasses of fizz. We really couldn’t have had a better day – thank you!!!!
