Last updated at 11:04, Friday, 09 March 2012
SUZANNE Charnley, 41, a unit manager at Furness General Hospital, and Chris Langley, 34, an intensive care charge nurse at FGH, of Kirkby, married at Barrow Town Hall.
HOW THEY MET: The bride had just returned from a trip to Dublin in March 1998 when she was introduced to the groom by a mutual friend.
PROPOSAL: The groom proposed on Kos in Greece in September 2000.
VENUE: The ceremony and reception were held in Barrow Town Hall, which has special significance for the bride, being the venue where her parents met.
THEME: Teal and ivory.
BRIDE’S OUTFIT: The bride wore a vintage-inspired dress from Phase Eight at John Lewis with brocade detail.
GROOMSMEN: The groom’s brother Matthew Langley was best man and the couple’s son, nine-year-old Sam, was mini-best man and ring bearer. They wore dark grey suits from Mr Mister, Barrow, with silver waistcoats and gunmetal grey ties.
BRIDESMAIDS: The couple’s daughters, 12-year-old Sophie and five-year-old Isobel were flower girls along with the bride’s niece, three-year-old Megan Charnley. They wore dresses from BHS.
FLOWERS: The bride carried a bouquet of vintage roses and pink lisianthus and Sophie carried a posy of cream lisianthus, supplied by Deborah’s The Florist, Barrow. The bride attached a vintage brooch from the 1920s, belonging to the groom’s late grandma, to the ribbon at the base of her bouquet.
TRANSPORT: A vintage Daimler was hired from George Hall and Son, of Barrow, as a surprise for the bride.
RECEPTION: Guests enjoyed a pink Champagne toast at Barrow Town Hall, before a three-course wedding breakfast.
TABLE SETTINGS: The bride decorated the tables with cream candles in hurricane vases and draped fresh ivy up the main staircase and over the tables.
FAVOURS: Guests received packages of Grasmere Gingerbread, significant because the groom’s mother and grandmother lived in Grasmere.
CAKE: A colleague, Gill O’Connell, made a fantastic three-tier cake decorated in more than 40 handmade sugar roses and ivy, which she transported from her home in Hawkshead on the morning of the wedding.
FIRST DANCE: Beyond The Sea, by Robbie Williams, from Finding Nemo, their youngest’s favourite film.
ENTERTAINMENT: A disco for more than 200 people at The Forum, provided by Neil Boothby of Wheels of Fire. Children at the evening reception were treated to a lucky dip and guests enjoyed a pie and pea supper.
HONEYMOON: A five-night break in Paris, paid for by the wedding guests and colleagues.
PHOTOGRAPHER: Rosie Hillman.
