Romancing The Lakes Region With Wedding Photography

The Laker - June 4, 2012

The Lakes Region is the perfect spot to get married. With the gorgeous backdrop of the mountains and the beauty of the lake, the area hosts hundreds of weddings, from large to intimate, each year.

All those weddings require great wedding photography to capture each romantic moment. NH has many talented wedding photographers, and an upcoming exhibit at the Historic Belknap Mill brings together the images caught by some of the area’s best professionals.

Titled “Romancing the Lakes Region – NH Wedding Photography,” the exhibit will run from June 10 – July 5 in the Belknap Mill’s first floor art gallery. Sponsored by Curt’s Caterers, the Inns and Spa at Mill Falls and Lakes Region Bride magazine, the show will feature a variety of images of Lakes Region weddings, from indoor events to lakeside and other outdoor nuptials.

Some of the photographers who will be exhibiting in the gallery show are Tim Cameron of Achber Studio, Kris Dobbins Photo, Kathy Pothier Photo, Photo by Kim Keyes, Jim MacMillan of WonbyOne Design, DMSP Productions and Maureen Bienarz-Pond of Imagine Gallery.

Brides-to-be who are in the midst of wedding planning can stop by and see the wedding photography exhibit and perhaps find the photographer that fits their needs for their own wedding and tour the Historic Belknap Mill, the perfect spot for a wedding any time of the year.

The Belknap Mill offers small weddings and parties in the art gallery and a large reception/function space on the third floor (with elevator) for groups of up to about 225. The third floor space also offers a kitchen for caterers and plenty of space for a dance floor area, tables, music … and the Mill is flexible about allowing the bride, family and friends to decorate the space before the wedding.

If your wedding is taking place in the spring, summer or autumn, the adjacent Rotary Park gazebo offers the perfect place to exchange your wedding vows and to capture some memorable, beautiful wedding photos.

The Belknap Mill is open Monday – Friday from 9am to5pm and Saturdays from 9am to Noon; to see the Mill’s function spaces, call Nancy at 524-8813.

The wedding photography exhibit is open to the public, free of charge. Visit for a complete list of Mill events and information about functions, the history of the building and more.
