Christopher Birkett — Lake District Wedding Photographer, Cumbria & The North Wedding Photographer
Christopher Birkett developed an interest in photography from a young age. He took his interest further by studying various courses, the first being at Carlisle College where he gained a city and guilds in photography.

My approach to wedding photography moves away from the traditional and leads you to a style that is very much in touch with today's trends. I document what I see, working unobtrusively letting the day unfold, capturing the magic of your day as it happens. Being a Lake District Wedding photographer, photographing lake district weddings is great there are so many beautiful backdrops.
Every wedding is an individual event, each composed with personalised details that go together to make your special day, special.
Each wedding receives my personal attention, and includes:
* pre-wedding consultation
* visit to the ceremony and venue locations
* web hosting of your images for you, family and friends with online ordering in your own gallery
