A proposal on the cobbles of Coronation Street sealed the future for James Fletcher and Sophie Craddock.
The couple married at Singleton Lodge on January 21 before jetting off to the Dominican Republic for their honeymoon.
James, 31, and assistant manager at a hotel in Manchester and Sophie, 24, a salon manager, met online. James had just returned from a working on a cruise ship in America and they began chatting.
They clicked, found out they had lots of mutual interests, and the rest is history.
Sophie said: “Our wedding day was super special to us as all our family and friends could come, we had guests travelling from everywhere – Canada, Southampton, Durham!
“As part of the father of the bride’s speech, he did a Mr and Mrs game, they had bought blue and pink paddles and myself and James stood back to back as my dad asked us questions.
“My mum did a lot of the planning and organising of the wedding, she has got a good eye for detail and she had planned lots of little bits.
“We had a lovely confetti bar from Adamapple and she had made her own sweet buffet for the children.
“She had also done a collage of old and new photos which included all of the day guests.
“She had even found the invite from my grandad’s mum and dad’s wedding which was dated 1929,
“It was lovely touch as there were pictures of people who unfortunately are not with us anymore – so it was nice to feel like they were a part of our day.”
Sophie added: “The whole day was perfect from start to finish. We were surrounded by our lovely family and the best of friends.
“And I got to marry the love of my life James, the kindest person with the biggest heart. I am so excited for our future together.”
James said: “The day was so special to me as I got to tell the love of my life that I want to spend the rest of my life with her.
“It was such an amazing experience that we got to share with all of our loved ones, and I will cherish the memory of that day forever.
