Real Life Weddings at South Lodge

Hear from Louise and Mark and what made their special day perfect!

How did you both meet and how did the proposal occur?

We met through work around 6 years ago. The proposal was a Tuesday evening in January 2018 in our lounge. Mark had purposely brought me some Haribo with jelly rings and said "I could propose to you with this ring" I looked at him a laughed and he then got a real ring out of his pocket and said "or I could propose to you with this ring" and opened the box. I sat there in shock saying "oh my god" for about 5 minutes. 

What did you love most about South Lodge?

It's somewhere we have visited every anniversary so it only seemed right to have our wedding there. We love it and the service is always amazing. 

Did you have a theme or particular style for the day?

No theme as such but organisation and early planning is key to less stress. 

Tell us all about the dress...

It was the dress of my dreams, as soon as I saw it I knew it was the one. A lace dress with long train, beautiful detailing, button up back and small amount of sparkle. 

What do you remember most about the day?

Walking down the aisle looking at the beautiful views next to my brother and seeing everyone stood waiting for me. 

Were there any special moments or surprises during the planning and day?

When our 13 year old said yes to being best man and was willing to do a speech. It was incredible and so emotional.

What tips or advise would you give to future couples?

Plan early! It really helps when you get to a few weeks before and all the little bits come together - a lot less stressful!
