Lorraine Oates Photography


Hi there Im Lorraine Oates a full time Wedding Portrait Photographer with over 15 years experience.

Based in the South Lakeland district of Cumbria in North West England. I live in the small town of Dalton-in-Furness situated in-between Barrow-in-Furness, a stone throw away from Furness Abbey a former monastery dating back to 1123 and Ulverston a beautiful market town with many lovely shops and old cobbled streets.

My friendly and fun personality and genuine love for people has provided me with the best tools for becoming an Award Winning Wedding and Portrait Photographer, which now takes me out of the studio and into the Cumbrian Lake District covering areas including Bowness, Windermere, Ambleside, Kendal, Grasmere and Keswick or heading the other way Broughton through to Millom.

“We decided on a ‘Just us’ elopement wedding over-looking the Lake Windermere”

It was perfect from start to finish! Naturally, we were a little apprehensive but we needn’t have been, everyone was so incredibly welcoming and helpful. The whole day went without a hitch, it was completely stress-free having no guests to worry about or consider. It also meant we got to spend the entire few days together to enjoy being ‘husband & wife’. We wouldn’t have changed a single thing and recommend eloping to everyone- after all a wedding is about two people not two hundred!! We didn’t even miss out on the celebrations as we had organised an evening of celebrations with our family and friends on our return!
