in pink Ceri and Michael opted for a pink palette for their day’s styling, which featured both bold and subtle hues Images courtesy of Caroline White Photography PRETTY Ceri and Michael both belonged to North Wales-based running club The Nightcrawlers when they met, and it was during one of their runs through the muddy, wet woods and mountains of North Wales that they started chatting for the first time. Ceri works for Snowdonia Cheese Company and was telling her auntie about her day at work as they jogged along. Michael overheard this and boldly proclaimed: “I don’t like cheese!” Certainly a conversation starter! Michael proposed in the couple’s favourite spot on Anglesey, Rhoscolyn’s headland. “He got down on one knee on the cliffs above a beautiful rock archway. I was photographing it when I turned to find him presenting me with the most incredible engagement ring,” Ceri remembers. The venue search was on and the couple chose Arley Hall in Cheshire as the place that would have the honour of hosting their big day. “It is absolutely stunning in every way. It’s both majestic and perfectly maintained despite its age. The grounds surrounding the Hall are beautifully kept and the staff couldn’t be more helpful,” Ceri explains.
