A Teal and Pink Lake District Wedding: Hannah Neale and Sam Pooley

08 Oct 2015

After a church ceremony, Hannah and Sam chose their favourite place in the Lake District, the Wild Boar, close to Lake Windermere, to celebrate their teal and pink wedding

Hannah and Sams wedding has all the hallmarks of a beautiful British wedding by the lakes, with family ties at its heart. The newlyweds tell Bride about their stunning lakeside big day.

Tell us about your wedding
Our favourite place in the Lake District is the Wild Boar, so it was perfect to be able to have our reception there. Sams mother, Julia, celebrated her 21st birthday there and his father, Stephen, had a photo of a couple outside the Wild Boar on his desk all the way through university as his inspiration, so it was the perfect place for everyone.

We met in our church youth group and started going out when we were 14 and 15, so our church ceremony at St Thomass Church in Kendal was made up of our special family friends in the church. This was so important for us.

What was the theme for the day, and did you have a colour scheme?
The wedding colours were teal and pink and we had an overall English countryside/rustic feel to the day just perfect for the reception at the Wild Boar. My grandmother, Judy Neale, and aunt, Julie Marshall, helped with the flowers in the church nannie spent a year collecting and decorating more than 250 jam jars.

The Wild Boar staff did a fantastic job of dressing the restaurant and marquee with hundreds of feet of bunting made by my godmother, Cag Wilson. Our amazing photographer Rob Berry really captured the relaxed feel of the day. We had a lovely cheese cake, a jazz pianist and four speeches, including one by me, which were hilarious, and emotional.

How did you feel as you walked down the aisle?
So excited. I was laughing and crying while walking down the aisle and our cheeks hurt from smiling so much.

What song did you choose for your first dance?
In the evening we had a DJ for dancing into the night, and our first dance was to Love Will Be Enough by Dave Barnes, sung by my brothers girlfriend Jess Montgomery and David Crooks, one of our ushers. It was a very special moment.

We did a road trip around Tuscany, Italy.

Do you have any advice for couples in the planning stages?
Spend quality time with the groom during your engagement and especially in the run-up to the wedding, where you cant talk about the wedding you want to remember why you chose to marry them.
