Katherine and Dan's summer wedding at The Bridge Hotel Wetherby, Yorkshire

What’s your love story, how did you meet?

We met on the first day of our PGCE – training to be maths teachers (safe to say, neither of us went into the profession!). We found ourselves sat next to each other on the first day and spent the next week getting to know each other – doing lots of maths and playing lots of board games! 8 days in, we headed into York together for a walk around the Museum Gardens, sat down on a bench and here we are 8 years later!


How did you get engaged/proposal?

We knew we didn’t want to do things traditionally! Having been together for 6 ½ years, we both knew we wanted to get married after buying a house. When we wanted to formally get engaged, we booked a lodge with a hot tub in the Lake District for a long weekend, wrote some soppy things to each other and exchanged engagement rings!


Why did you choose your venue?

We visited a few venues in the local area, but the Bridge really stood out to us as it would allow us to have an outdoor ceremony, bring along Goldie (our golden retriever puppy) and have enough space for all our friends and family!


What’s the style/theme/vibe of your wedding?

The theming is simply ‘us’! Everything at our wedding is themed around our favourite things and the things in life we enjoy together. We’ve got board game themed centre pieces, a mini golf course, garden games, a board game room, table tennis table, a Lego cake topper, and sunflowers!


Is there anything special at your wedding that you’ve included and why?

We’ve included our gorgeous dog Goldie as part of the ceremony as the ring bearer! She’s such a big part of our lives now, she couldn’t not be there for the best day of our lives!


What are you most looking forward to about your wedding day?

Being together with all our friends and family to celebrate our love and an exciting future together!


Any future advice for Brides/Grooms planning their day?

Plan it together; and make it YOURS. We’ve had a lot of fun planning out all of the details together – especially listening to music deciding which songs to use for the ceremony and evening playlist.


Kind words and/or why you chose us to capture your day:

We chose you to be our photographers because we loved the style of your photos – capturing those little, real moments full of love & laughter!
