Louise and Mark first met on a Christmas night out in Haltwhistle in December 2011. Fast-forward to September 1st 2018 and this couple tied the knot in front of friends and family at St Cuthberts Church, in Northumberland, followed by a celebration at The Halston, in Cumbria.
Louise and Mark wanted a venue that reflected them as a couple and fused together contemporary with rustic. “We always wanted a laidback wedding – to match our personalities! We both liked the rustic outdoors look/theme but equally we wanted fresh and modern. In the end we decided to go with a modern venue and brought the outdoors indoors with wild and rustic flowers.”
The couple decided on The Halston. “We choose our venue as they were new, fresh and modern. We would definitely recommend The Halston to future brides. Becky and Emma’s expertise at The Halston is second-to-none.”
Louise looked absolutely stunning in her Morilee wedding gown from The Wedding Dress Company. “I visited one shop and tried around four dresses on before I found ‘the one’. The experience was great. Sarah at The Wedding Dress Company is so lovely and helped me find my perfect dress. I felt like an absolute princess in my dress.”
How did you choose your photographer?
“We had seen Camilla’s work via Facebook and instantly fell in love. Camilla has the ability to capture the most amazing shots without you even knowing! After booking our venue Camilla was the second thing we booked as we didn’t want to miss our chance at getting the perfect photographer.”
Advice for other brides and grooms?
“Don’t stress about the little things, we wrote our seating plan the day before the wedding and it was the best thing we did as we had no time to panic who was sitting where. Also take some time out, just the two of you to take everything in.”
What was your highlight of the day?
“Gosh there were so many! If I had to pick it would definitely be coming into church with my dad and walking up the aisle to see Mark turn around to watch me. Saying our vows was also exhilarating!”
