Cumbria and Lake District Wedding Photography


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


I provide high quality wedding photography services 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 15 years’ as a professional Lake District wedding photographer. I have covered over 900 weddings in all the varied, and sometimes exciting, weather that the Lake District 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 Cumbria wedding photography business. As a focused and creative photographer I always strive to offer you a level of service that far exceeds your expectations with all of my Lake District wedding photography packages.

My contemporary approach to wedding 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 Lake District scenery as a beautiful background is frequently possible. 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 wedding day to facilitate a visit to some of Cumbria’s finest views.

Clients Comments

Gail & Stuart (New House Farm)

From Start to Finish Chris was fantastic. He was very calm and made us both feel very at ease. The photos we received are absolutely fantastic. We have laughed and cried whilst looking through them. Chris has captured everything - the ambience, the feel and all of the small touches. Would highly recommend Chris to everyone.


Emma & Stefan (Muncaster Castle)

The album looks fab we are over the moon with it.

Thanks for the photos we are really pleased with them and can’t wait to share them with friends and family.


Stuart & Karen

Awesome photographer, make you feel incredibly at ease. Totally unobtrusive and unaware Chris is even close by taking pictures sometimes! Perfect photographer to capture a perfect day


Hilary & George (Wordsworth House)

Chris, thank you so much for the wedding album! It is absolutely stunning, you did such a great job putting together the story board for the album and it's such a fantastic way of recording our day. We will treasure it forever!

I would definitely recommend an album to other couples! 


Lucy & Dirk (Langdale Chase Hotel)

Can't recommend Chris more highly, the exquisite photos he captured for us were breathtaking and most certainly worth braving the cold! Really good turn around time in getting the photos to us as promised and beautifully presented. Thank you Chris, really appreciate your time and skills.


Jenny & Chris

My husband and I are amazed by the photos Chris took of our wedding on the 22nd March 2014. Even though some were posed, they still feel so natural and relaxed, completely capturing our characters and the essence of the day.


David & Jessamy (Lake District)

You have done such an amazing job on our wedding photos, we're very happy indeed.. so many people have commented on the pics also and of their high standard. Sterling job mate!! We hope everything is well with you and that you're getting plenty of business, thanks a million!


Mary & Rob (Lake District) 

From the first time we spoke to Chris we were confident that he had understood what we were looking for - relaxed and informal photos which captured the atmosphere of the day and the Lake District surroundings. He didn't disappoint. On the day Chris was friendly and unobtrusive - he really felt more like a guest than official photographer! However he did gently lure us, and our guests, briefly away from the festivities when he spotted an opportunity, and we are delighted with the lovely and unique photos that we have as a result.

About Chris Freer

My name is Chris Freer and I live with my wife Rachel and our two young children in Cockermouth, Cumbria.

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. In 2000 I began taking a more serious interest in landscape photography, especially with the beauty of the Lake District on my doorstep, some of these images have been displayed and purchased in local galleries.


This interest in the landscape has been applied to my signature Lake District wedding images that have helped me gain my current reputation. Sometimes I can’t believe that I have been lucky enough to turn my hobby into a career.
