Your Yorkshire Wedding - January/February 2024 (Issue 64)

Lindsey and Stephen said “I do” on 30th September 2023 at The Oakwood at Ryther Images courtesy of Tom Benson Photography Lindsey and Stephen met online and within three dates knew this was it. “Finding out that Stephen used to come fishing at my parents’ ponds when he was younger, made it feel like we were destined to meet all those years later,” says Lindsey. Feeling that their lives fit together perfectly, Stephen proposed on Lindsey’s 30th birthday at home with help from their children, five and four months. “It was the perfect, intimate proposal I’d always dreamed of,” Lindsey remembers. When time came to look for a venue, the couple had in mind somewhere with accommodation allowing them to make a weekend of their celebrations.
