What a wonderful picture to start this blog post with!  Many congratulations to Laura and Paul who got married earlier this year. Stunning photography by Graham Fletcher-Hill  of Fletcherhill Photography

Laura used Paperless Wedding ‘Website Only” package and included the website address in her paper invitation.  This allowed her to add lots of photos and details about her big day on the website rather fill her invitation with lots of additional paper. She shares her thoughts, photos and tips with us, so Laura  do tell us more about your day! 

“We got married at the beautiful St Mary’s Church in Staveley-in-Cartmel, in the heart of the Lake District.  We followed up with our reception at The Grange Hotel in Grange-Over-Sands. The following day we had our garden party at our home Millerbeck, which is lucky to have a miniature railway running around its garden!

I do want to say a big thank you to Graham for fantastic photos and putting Paul and myself at ease on the day. My beautiful dress came from Frothimoon and my bridesmaid, Emma did my make up on the day. We got our hair done by Aqua Hair Spa.

Our church flowers were kindly arranged by our fantastic friend Christine Kent.  Our bouquets, button holes and table decorations were arranged by Dodds Florist.  The stunning pink rose adorned cake was made by Sugar Ruffles and had layers of fruit, lemon and summer fruit.  It was delicious!!

How did you find using Paperless Wedding?
The website was easy to design and we could include lots of information about accommodation, the venues and things to do in the area (for those visiting from afar!). We were also able to put links, maps and directions etc. which helped guests to get to our day. We had a second celebration the day after so were able to put more information about this.  We also, of course, linked our wedding gift list which we had through Abercrombie & Kent.

The guests gave great comments about the website, especially those who had not visited the area before. They said it looked professional and that it was great to have everything in one place.

Do share some of your advice to brides planning their wedding.
Start planning and booking early. The best venues get booked up really fast. We booked The Grange Hotel about eighteen months in advance and there were only 2 Saturday’s left available. Pace yourself and book things early. We chose and booked all our suppliers well in advance which meant everything was stress-free. My parents worked extremely hard to make sure that everything was perfect. So, have the support of your friends and family.”

Best memory of the day…..

“There are too many to pick one. The whole day was lovely and unforgettable!”

Thank you so much for sharing your story with us and for using Paperless Wedding.  We wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness.
