We adore Fran and Dan's real wedding on page 51 of the current issue!
Fran and Dan met while studying at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. “We were working together on a show called The Young Idea,” says Fran. “He was the sound engineer, and I was the assistant stage manager.”
The couple had been together nearly six years when Dan popped the question. “I grew up in a 500-year-old watermill in the countryside,” shares the bride. “There is a mountain behind the house that I spent a lot of time climbing as a child. I had always planned to take Dan there because it holds a special place in my heart, but we'd never found the time. On Boxing Day in 2016, he suggested that I finally take him there. The walk took much longer than we expected, and by the time we reached the top, it was sunset. It was there that Dan asked me to be his wife. It was the perfect proposal, and the mountain now holds a special place in both our hearts.”
Here are some of our favourite images and a list of the suppliers who made the day possible.
