We adore Gillian and Paul's real wedding on page 43 of the current issue!
Gillian and Paul decided to keep it simple for their first date and met for coffee. “We talked for almost four hours,” says the bride. “We soon realised we had lots in common, and we bonded over our mutual love of the Lake District.”
A year later, Paul popped the question at the Stock Ghyll Force in Ambleside. “I had just returned from a holiday with some of my friends, and the time apart made us realise we never wanted to be separated again,” Gillian recalls. “He had secretly arranged for my daughter and her partner to drive up to Ambleside after the proposal, and we all had a celebratory meal together.”
Here are some of our favourite images and a list of the suppliers who made the day possible.
