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.

Yes – old pearl choker my made had made for my mum was made into a bracelet.

Do you have any advice for future brides?
