How did you both meet?

Met at work, Pomme was my boss but all the staff at work thought it was the other way around! 

Tell us about the proposal?

Pomme had come back to the UK from aus and we had gone up to spend some time in the lakes. We got up at about 0600 and went up Orrest head to try and see the sun rise, however as is usual it was blowing a hoolie with horizontal rain. Then in making sure I remembered the ring I forgot the tea bags so we just had hot water from the flask. We moved down just off the very top out of the wind before I dropped to one knee, then the sun came out for a while and it was all good as she said yes!

What made you choose your wedding venue?

St martins church is stunning inside and langdale chase was an obvious choice with stunning views and great food it was a no brainer.

What was your colour scheme or wedding theme?

We are quite relaxed but also both traditional so had quite traditional colours with dusky pink bridesmaids dresses and cravats to match.

Tell us about your dress?

Ian Stuart killer queen 2012 collection vaudeville 

Did you have ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue?

Yes – old pearl choker my made had made for my mum was made into a bracelet.
Also Old king George V silver sixpence in my shoe
New – dress, accessories
Borrowed – angel pin onto underskirt to represent loved and lost

What was your favourite photograph and why did you like it?

Really difficult questions!  Love landscape ones
Love one caught as I entered church I porch with my nephew having bent leg and funny expression on his face
Love one from back of the church taken through possibly something on the font?
Also love the ones taken of ppl unawares.  Not really answered the question specifically I’m sorry 

What was your most useful source of wedding ideas and information?

Pintrest and other friends weddings

Do you have any advice for future brides?

Relax! Enjoy it! It doesn’t matter if things don’t go exactly to plan. Go with the flow.

What was the best part of your wedding day?

Michael – Exchanging vows and seeing everyone having such a good time.
Pomme – I loved the whole thing, exchanging vows, having all our friends together seeing them enjoy themselves

Was Steve of Derwent Photography the right photographer for you?

Definitely, some amazing shots, almost invisible on the day and relaxed and clinical with approach.
