LIZZIE & JONATHON: REAL BRIDE STORY
We got married at Kendal Parish Church on 14th August 2021, then a glorious reception at Castle Green Hotel. I met Jonny through my sister and brother-in-law. After years of trying to set us up, after which years of friendship, we eventually re-met in the same church we'd end up getting married in! We were together 4 years before getting engaged on our annual White Moss Walk around Rydal Water.
I'd always known I wanted to obtain married at Kendal Parish Church with this vicar Ashley Henderson, it's such a beautiful church that was a huge part of our lives for weddings funerals and christenings. As we both do plenty of project management within our jobs, the marriage was simple to plan; a spreadsheet along with a dropbox folder helped us get ready for the big day! We both love big cars and vintage things, therefore them was easy. We had vintage-looking flowers with muted colors, and we spent annually restoring a classic car together.
When I found the dress, I knew I wanted something. As a professional singer, I wear lots of lovely gowns and wanted my wedding gown to be different, although not gimmicky. Something classing, Audrey Hepburn- style, however with some flair to exhibit me!
We were so lucky to possess our wedding in August when all restrictions had lifted. Everything visited plan. My favorite part of the wedding dresses was walking on the aisle and seeing Jonny awaiting me in the end with tears in their eyes. We were both so exhausted from wedding ceremony planning, and that we don’t get enough rest without one another so it was an enormous relief to determine him standing there and that we could finally be married.
I asked people in the choir I was able to come and sing like a surprise flash mob within the church once we left. We considered facing the congregation and also the string quartet started to play 'Zadok the Priest' then angelic singing began all over the church. Everyone was surprised, it brought a tear to my attention. I am so proud and grateful for the singers from the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain, The Brewery Community Choir, and also the Darlington Operatic Society.
My advice to future brides is to locate time for one another on the day and savor every moment as it's over too rapidly!
