The blushing bride came to the wedding at Cote How in Rydal in a Bentley. on

A BLUSHING bride who was driven to her dream wedding in a Bentley felt “revitalized” after the wedding.

Amy-Leigh Bromilow, 31, who works in the optical industry, married Nicholas Joseph Wolsoncroft, 32, who works in the mechanical engineering industry, on December 7th at Cote How, Rydal.

The newlyweds made their vows in front of just six guests, including their three-year-old daughter Grace, who was a bridesmaid.

The couple first met 15 years ago when they bonded over their love for nature, cars and coffee.

“Our first date was some sort of ‘walking shoes and hiking gear’ in Bala Wales,” said Ms. Wolsoncroft.

“We got engaged on February 7th, 2018 at Stanley House.

“This was the place where we first made our relationship ‘official’ in one night so it was nice that he took me back there and proposed.

“It was a complete surprise.”

Fortunately, the couple’s wedding plans were unaffected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Ms. Wolsoncroft said, “We have always wanted an intimate wedding and have chosen our venue based on our specific needs for small weddings.”

The couple described their big day as “invigorating” and “unforgettable”.

She said, “The weather was very rainy and cold, we were driven to the venue by my father in his Bentley.

“We had mulled wine on arrival in Cote How and the fire was crackling.

“We didn’t want a big wedding or a lot of stress, so we made everything as simple as possible, which was so nice because we could all just enjoy the day.

“We had celebratory afternoon tea that was great – Caroline’s scones are amazing.

“We went to the lake with Simon and he took a few photos of us at the lake.

“We were all so soaked and cold, for us it was invigorating and unforgettable – exactly what we wanted.

“We had planned to go to the Rydal Caves afterwards (we brought our walking shoes and waterproof clothing) but we decided not to do so for safety reasons due to the storm.

“So we booked Simon again for anniversary photos in the caves.”

For their honeymoon, the couple stayed at Brunt House in Loughrigg, Ambleside the day before the wedding and a week after.

Ms. Wolsoncroft said, “It was a great base from which to wander and visit the local cities and just relax and hang out with the three of us.”
