Love what you see? Check my availability

Hello, I'm a full-time professional photographer and filmmaker based in Kendal, Cumbria. Primarily, I'm a Lake District wedding photographer but I also undertake an extensive range of commercial photography and film work and travel throughout the UK and further afield. I create natural photos that are bright and colourful. I've been making images for over a decade so you can be confident that your memories are in good hands!

Lake District Wedding Photographer: Mark Battista

“Wedding Photographer of the Year 2023”



“The final pictures were absolutely stunning and it took us a long, long time to whittle our favourites down to put in the album....... We cannot recommend Mark enough and are desperately trying to think of other photography projects just so we can keep in touch!”


Looking for a Lake District Wedding Photographer?

Look no further, I've been a Lake District wedding photographer for over a decade and I absolutely love it! I have a wealth of experience in bringing memories to life and to date have shot over 500 weddings. The Lake District is a truly magical place for your wedding story - from the rolling hills and rugged landscapes that this beautiful area of the world has to offer to the tranquil streams, hidden valleys, waterfalls, tarns and lakes. Maybe you're planning an elopement or maybe you're story is taking place in one of our beautiful Lake District hotels or country houses, whatever your plans get in touch, I'm looking forward to hearing from you. Visit my lake district wedding photography page to see some of my work and/or to find out more about me and how I work.

Lindeth Howe Hotel in Bowness-on-Windermere, The Castle Green Hotel in Kendal, Abbey House Hotel in Barrow, The Belsfield Hotel in Windermere, Fairbank Wedding Barn in Staveley, Town Head Estate, Broadoaks Country House Hotel in Windermere, Storrs Hall Hotel, Inn on the Lake in Glenridding, Cragwood Country House Hotel in Windermere, Merewood Country House Hotel in Windermere, Hidden River Cabins, Lodore Falls, The Old England Hotel in Windermere, Lakeside Hotel and Spa in Newby Bridge, North Lakes Hotel & Spa in Penrith, The Crown at Wetheral, The Low Wood Bay Resort and Spa in Windermere, The Carus Green Golf Club, The Wild Boar Inn in Crook, The Villa in Levens, Mytton Fold Hotel in Blackburn, The Halston Hotel in Carlisle, Bartle Hall in Preston
