A Lake District Wedding
By Hannah Wiggins, July 2022
We would love to know when did you first meet, how did your love story begin?
Alan and I first met on Tinder! At the time it was a slightly controversial way to find “the love of your life” but it worked for us. Unknowingly we both met at quite difficult times in our lives when we were going through a lot but, we always say the timing was absolutely perfect for us both. We met for our first date on my birthday too which was lovely and a totally spare of the moment date.
It certainly has worked out for you both - such a gorgeous couple! We’d love to hear your engagement story?
We got engaged
two years to the day we met and on my birthday. Alan had spoiled me for my birthday and took us to Manchester to the Lowry Hotel
where we had a spa day followed by a meal in Australasia
. It was during the meal we just had such a gorgeous heartfelt conversation about how we met two years to the day and the next thing I new Alan asked me to marry him. It was such a lovely experience and I just felt so lucky that he wanted ME to be his wife.
We can only imagine that there must be hundreds, but what is your favourite moment from your wedding day?
My favourite moment from our big day was us sneaking off after the wedding breakfast to a scenic part of Kendal called Scouts Scar. It's an uphill walk
which takes 10/15 minutes and we always questioned whether we would get the weather/time to do it. As we always say, the timing was just perfect- weather and all! We had the best hour up there with our photographer
capturing the most amazing shots and footage! We are so grateful to our talented photographer James Hicks
for suggesting this to us! It truly was unforgettable and the pictures are stunning!
Would you recommend any suppliers we could share with our brides to be?

Lastly, how did you find the process of selecting your wedding rings with us?
I am so lucky that Alan had already chosen Wongs
to design and make my beautiful bespoke engagement ring
! I know I already loved this and so it was an obvious choice for us to return for our wedding rings
was an absolute angel during the process and she truly got to know us and what we liked! Our bands are perfect and we absolutely love them! All our rings
tell a gorgeous story of our journey too.
