Lisa and Jamie tied the knot with a nature-inspired wedding at Burrows Lea Country House

Lisa and Jamie first laid eyes on each other at work. “Jamie took over my role when I went on a sabbatical to go travelling,” says Lisa. “When I returned, we were working in the same team. We got on well and had the same sense of humour and interests. It did take a while for us to eventually pluck up the courage to admit we liked each other more than friends. Jamie asked me to go to the pub for our first date in the same village we would have our wedding reception eight years later.”

The couple bought their first home, and shortly after, Jamie proposed. “We had just celebrated our anniversary, and Jamie said he had a belated gift,” shares the bride. “The present was a pack of cards that said ‘10 things I love about you.’ As I read through them, I got to the last one, which said: ‘will you marry me?’ Jamie then got down on one knee with the ring. It was a surprise in the sense that I thought it may have happened on our anniversary, and when that passed, I thought maybe it wasn’t happening that year. Jamie referred to the pack of cards in his speech on the wedding day, which was really touching.”
