Unique Wedding Venue in The Lake District

Situated within the tarns and fells of the Mardale Valley and flaunting breath-taking views over Haweswater's sparkling shoreline, weddings at Aquila are sure to make a long lasting impression.

The Venue Aqulia is a unique waterside wedding venue; its idyllic location enchanting 20 of your nearest and dearest from the moment they arrive. Contemporary flourishes of industrial style create a cool warehouse vibe, whilst outside the stone facade merges seamlessly into the panorama of fells and mountains beyond. Aquila offers an unconventional wedding day, granting the most picturesque lakeside backdrop for wedding photography.

The Accommodation Aquila sleeps up to six guests, so invite the in-laws or keep the place for just you and your spouse. On the morning of your big day, the vintage 1930's cast iron bath offers an indulgent soak for last minute pampering. The lofty master room has a king-size bed and en suite shower room big enough for two - making it quite the honeymoon suite! 

The Grounds This luxury wedding venue in the lakes is sure to capture your hearts.

Tie the knot in one of the three local churches or at the nearby Haweswater Hotel, walking distance from Aquila - even in wedding heels! Marry in Gatsby style at the art deco hotel and embellish with diamonds and pearls, or opt to say 'I do' in the wildlife-rich garden for an al fresco affair.
