Why did you want to hold your wedding at Whitehaven?
The reason for having our wedding at Whitehaven was because we where both overwhelmed by how modern yet welcoming and spacious the room looked with the gorgeous lighting and lovely grounds with mountains in the backgrounds… we had also eaten there before for my granddads 80th and the customer service was fantastic, also from first meeting Karen she was like our wedding planner, myself and Carl where very indecisive about a few things and she passed on her experience of previous weddings and advised us accordingly which was very helpful and calming.
Tell us how Carl proposed?
I’ve actually had two proposals from Carl … first time was 8 years ago and our first little girl was 6 months old in a little restaurant called the old town house, he got the staff to bring out the ring after our food in a little basket and it wasn’t till he got down on one knee that i realized why he kept going the toilet, bless him he was that nervous and emotional he didn’t even ask me to marry him he just said “I love you so much and you mean the world to me and I said yeah and he put the ring on, still don’t know what I said yes to that first time xxx
Second proposal was due to us both having a small disagreement to which Carl got a bit agitated so left the house to get his cigarettes from his car … I thought he was doing a runner so I threw my ring and it got lost in the grass, poor sod, he was only getting his cigarettes. 3 months later my neighbor found it in his lawn mower, mowed it and broke it. On NYE we had a get together with friends where he proposed again bless him and gave me a new ring and this time he actually said “will you marry me and make me the happiest man ever” I obviously said yes and we celebrated the new year with family and friends bless him!
Why did you choose us to capture your BIG DAY?
We chose RTP to capture our day because we loved and were blown away by your work! I honestly had never seen anything like it before, the way it’s put together is so moving and magical capturing the perfect bits and also the funny bits haha, and after showing Carl a friends wedding preview (and looked on your pages) we where both hooked, your work speaks for itself, it truly shows how talented you both are and not only how important your job is but how much you appreciate a couples special day, as you both are fantastic people and we where so honored to have you both there on our special day.
What experience did you want for your guests?
The experience we wanted for our guests was to say ‘Best Wedding Ever’ and to have memories forever, we didn’t expect everyone to be so emotional. We wanted everyone to remember how BARMY we both are and have a great laugh. It was nice to see so many people moved by our day as me and Carl are usually a bit crackers and don’t take anything too seriously… really touched us both
