It all started when...
Kathryn and Darren's Cheshire Wedding at Willington Hall
I love it when a couple appreciate how much of a wedding geek I am. Kathryn knew. She got it. She kept me going with updates on her wedding crafting progress. As always time flew and before we knew it, it was time to start making paper flowers and actually get married! Really excited to share this lovely wedding with you. It was a first time visit for us to Willington Hall in Cheshire - definitely worth the drive.
I'll let Kathryn tell you a little about their story
We met at uni in 2007 but it wasn't until 2011 that Darren managed to woo me by taking me on a date to Ikea followed by a romantic meal at Nandos using his free whole chicken voucher. He made up for the initial lack of romance by proposing at night in front of Edinbrugh Castle in December 2014. I can't quite remember his exact words but I've been told mine were "are you joking", "get up off the floor", "I think I'm going to be sick" this was swiftly followd by a few Jagermeisters to settle the nerves!"
Edinburgh Castle (and Jagermeisters for that matter) did feature in the wedding I'm pleased to say - it's the first time I've seen a grandma do a Jagermeister shot as part of the wedding toast!
Kathryn and Darren stumbled across Willington Hall by chance on the way back from an appointment at another venue. They immediately knew it was the right place for them. Despite never considering an outdoor wedding as soon as they saw The Temple (of doom, as it was subsequently nicknamed) they both knew it would be perfect for their big day. Thank goodness our English weather behaved and all our finger crossing did the trick. The weather was beautiful and the couple were able to make full use of the Temple and the grounds.
Kathryn was keen to make the wedding as personal as possible and being a big crafter she set about working on all the wedding stationary and decor - the menus, table plan, guest book and all those amazing paper flowers!
Massive thanks to Kathryn and Darren for choosing me as their wedding photographer. We enjoyed the day a ridiculous amount and had lots of giggles. It was brilliant to discover yet another beautiful wedding venue in the North West. Big thanks to Kathryn from Delicious photography for all her help on the day.
