Veils go flying on the banks of Lake Windermere

Jack and Lois Whatley married on the banks of Lake Windermere at The Beech Hill Hotel on May 12, 2012.

Close friends and family attended the day, which was the result of 18 months of planning, and luckily for the couple the sun shone down on them for the duration.



Following plenty of trial runs at home, bride Lois did her own hair and make-up. Her dress was 'Kalia' by Mon Cheri – a beautiful lacy and beaded gown with back buttons and an intricately detailed long train.

Bride and groom surprised each other with gifts on their wedding day. Jack bought Lois a "gorgeous diamond necklace", whilst he received a Tag Heuer watch from his future wife – both were thrilled with their presents.

After the ceremony the couple were showered with confetti by their guests on the hotel's terrace overlooking the tranquil Lake Windermere. The newly weds then went off to explore the grounds of the hotel for a fun photoshoot.

The new Mr and Mrs Whatley described the celebrations to HELLO! Online as "the best day of our lives".
