Leah and Mike celebrated their marriage with friends and family at Victoria Warehouse

Leah and Mike met at Heaton Moor Golf Club. “I had a part-time summer job there, and Mike was a member at the club,” says Leah. “There was an instant attraction. He offered me golf lessons so he could spend more time with me, and I was impressed when he won a major competition during one of my first shifts. Needless to say, his golf has gone downhill ever since!”

Mike proposed during a trip to Barcelona. “He told me to pack a small suitcase as he had booked a surprise weekend away,” shares the bride. “I packed all my woollies, thinking it would be a weekend in the Lakes but was excited when Mike handed me a boarding pass over the breakfast table. We headed straight to the airport and had our first holiday in Barcelona. I was suspicious at this point and thought he may be planning something at dinner later that evening, so I was shocked when he got down on one knee in front of the La Sagrada Família.”
