Lake District and Cumbria wedding photography

Cumbria and Lake District Wedding Photographer


My name is Chris Freer based in the beautiful Cumbria market town of Cockermouth, and I am one of a handful of full time, multi-award winning, professional, Lake District wedding photographers.


I provide high quality wedding photography services with unique local knowledge throughout Cumbria and the Lake District.

I want to tell the story of your day, the real stuff that happens. The emotions, the quirks and craziness of you and your guests, the unplanned, unscripted parts I know you’ll look back on and love!

I have gained a wealth of experience over more than 16 years’ as a professional Lake District photographer. I have covered over 1000 weddings in all the varied, and sometimes exciting weather that the region has to offer. In the last few years I’ve shot in excess of 75 weddings per year. I truly love what I do and thrive on building upon the strong reputation of my photography business. As a focused and creative image maker I always strive to offer you a level of service that far exceeds your expectations with all of my wedding packages.

My natural, relaxed and unobtrusive style to photography is well received and has aided me in continuing to build my excellent reputation as one of the top wedding photographers in the Lake District.

Whenever the weather and time will allow, capturing some dramatic engagement and wedding photographs with the landscape scenery as a beautiful background is frequently possible. With my local knowledge, I can often suggest a suitable location that we can travel to or alternatively if you have a special place in mind then we can always look at the logistics of your special day to facilitate a visit to some of Cumbria’s finest views.

I'm also a registered CAA drone pilot, so utilising the latest DJI drone technology, If the conditions and situation is suitable, we can launch the drone and capture some additional, dramatic and very unique aerial wedding photographs.

Over the years I have sampled many of the different products available to the wedding industry. There is a vast range available, but I have always believed in keeping things simple, without using the ‘on-trend’, fashionable designs or the latest fads. This is an approach I believe will help your albums maintain their timeless appeal.

Elopement wedding photography in the Lake District

Elopement Weddings

A secret wedding, often known as an elopement wedding or micro wedding, has become increasingly popular here in the Lake District. Maybe it’s the romantic idea of running away to be married or taking that chance to escape pressures from others about your special day, or perhaps it’s simply to keep the costs down. Whatever the reasons, I am being asked to provide professional wedding photography at these small, intimate ceremonies more and more frequently - and I love them!


Chris Freer

My name is Chris Freer and I live with my wife Rachel, our two young children and our Trail Hound called Jazz, in the Lake District town of Cockermouth. Since I got my first SLR camera at the age of 13 – and persuaded my parents to buy me countless rolls of film – I have been passionate about taking pictures.

My early working years taught me a lot about attention to detail and professionalism. These skills are important to me and my business and I will always try to apply them to whatever I do.
