The History of Canada Lake and Lodge

Canada Lake and Lodge, situated in Cardiff, United Kingdom, is not only a renowned wedding venue but also an emblem of rich history. This picturesque estate came into existence in 1893 as a reservoir feeding the thriving local cider industry. In 1948, it became a fishing lake, attracting anglers from across the country. The 1990s saw a significant shift in its role as the location was developed into a stunning wedding venue. The original Lodge was extensively renovated and refashioned into a luxurious suite, perfectly positioned to overlook the lake. In 2005, the Lakeside Suite was added, further enriching the facilities available for couples and their guests. Over the years, Canada Lake and Lodge has held on to its charm, offering an intimate, tranquil setting steeped in natural beauty. The history of Canada Lake and Lodge mirrors its resilience and versatility, having transitioned from being an industrial reservoir, to a recreational fishing lake and, eventually, the enchanting wedding location it is today.

Why should we book you as our photographer at Canada Lake and Lodge?

How early should I book you to be photographer for my Canada Lake and Lodge wedding?

Congratulations, you’re engaged and have chosen your date and venue. It’s time to secure your booking and to book your wedding photographer. We can be booked up to 2 years in advance, with the average time being a year before the big day. Don’t worry, if you are getting married sooner than that, please send us a message and we can check our diary. We take lots of last-minute wedding bookings – such as off-season or weekday weddings, as these generally have more availability. If you’ve booked a Saturday wedding in June, July or August, it’s important to book as soon as possible – which we’d love to be us! Another great incentive to book early is to guarantee your package price and potentially save you money. Even if your wedding is 2 years away, you will only pay the prices at the time of booking. 

How much does it cost to hire you as our photographer for a Canada Lake and Lodge wedding?

When it comes to ensuring your wedding day has a physical reminder of the emotions, love, laughter, romance and fun, a professional photographer is something you can’t afford to scrimp on.
