A wedding with an international flavour for Elizabeth and Daniel
Elizabeth and Daniel’s September wedding was an international affair, with family and friends jetting in from the other side of the world.
The couple, from Walton-le-Dale, Preston, met in September 2007 at the Yew Tree pub and became a couple two months later.
And two became three, just over a year later, when they were joined by son, Logan, in December 2008.
Elizabeth, a mental health recovery support worker for Active Pathways, says, Daniel, has been her rock during this past year, especially, after her mum passed away in March.
She says, “Like all couples we have our ups and downs but it has made our relationship stronger, I don’t know what I would have done without him this year.”

Daniel proposed in 2012 just before he was about to start his night shift as a mental health nurse’s assistant for the NHS.
Elizabeth says, “He hid a ring box for me to find with a little note inside with the ring saying, ‘I Love You, Will You Marry Me?’ I was ecstatic and cried, and of course I said yes.”
The pair were married at St Leonard’s Church on September 28 where Elizabeth was given away by her grandad, John Calderbank.
“The day was just magical,” says Elizabeth.
“Everybody enjoyed themselves and family flew in from France and Australia.
“We had giant games, casino tables and a photo booth - there was something going on for everybody.
“We have never been happier and would like to thank everybody for their support and well-wishes.”
