Your Cheshire and Merseyside Wedding - May/June 2023 (Issue 69)

WHITE WEDDING Nice day for a Lydia and Alexander chose a classic, traditional and sophisticated look for their big day Images courtesy of Sarah Horton Photography Lydia and Alexander met on a night out in Formby with mutual friends. By the end of the evening they’d already arranged their first date, having quickly discovered how much they had in common. Alexander proposed in one of their favourite weekend break destinations, the Lake District. “We spend a lot of time here, so it’s a very special place for us with a lot of great memories, this topping them all,” Lydia says. When they entered their hotel room, Lydia found it full of balloons with a bottle of champagne and strawberries on the table. It was here that Alexander asked the all-important question, much to Lydia’s surprise. The couple had been together for three years at this point and it was an easy, “Yes,” for the bride-to-be. Lydia and Alexander were quickly drawn to the intimate feeling of the grand estate, Dorfold Hall. “We viewed others, but they all seemed as though you could easily feel lost if there weren’t enough guests to fill the place. Dorfold didn’t have that,” Lydia explains. What sealed the deal for them though were the plans for a new event space, Le Curie. “It was only a building site when we booked, but we had trust in the venue that this would become a wonderful reality just in time,” Lydia says. So, the date was set for 27th August, 2022. Join us as the bride tells us more... 27 REAL WEDDINGS
