High school eventually brought Niall Hall and Amy Ford together, leading to a beautiful wedding in Preston.
The couple had both attended All Hallows School in Penwortham, although they didn’t know each other then.
It was when Niall returned to his old school as an IT technician and Amy secured a teaching position that they finally met and fell in love.
The couple tied the knot on August 12 at St Oswald’s Church in Longton before a reception at The Villa, Wrea Green.
Amy, 26, who is now head of Year Seven at the school, said: “We started talking when I returned to school as a teacher and we eventually got together.
“Niall proposed to me on a beach in Turkey in 2014.”
The couple planned a Gatsby-style 1920s themed wedding.
“The fact that it was a Gatsby themed day really made it stand out,” said Amy.
“We had a giant football outside and got some great pictures of me and the groomsmen playing football.”
Niall’s best man was his cousin Ben Higham and Amy’s bridesmaids were Cindy Prescott, Suzanne Walsh, Kara Wilcock and Niamh Hall
“The speeches were amazing,” said Amy.
“Ben, the best man, included photoshopped images of the groom in various nerdy films as Niall and Ben are both huge nerds when it comes to Star Wars.”
“We also had All Hallows choir consisting of both staff and pupils and they were unbelievable!”
Niall, 26, said: “It was the best day of my life from start to finish and couldn’t pick a single fault with anything.
Amy added: “Everything about it was perfect and it was amazing to have all the people we love in one room together just for us.”
