CHILDHOOD friends from Cockermouth got married in a beautiful wedding ceremony on bonfire night in front of family and friends, before they headed off to the Scottish Highlands for a honeymoon.

Sparks were always flying for plumbing, gas, and heating engineer Kieran Nash, 30, and Georgia Youdale, 29, as they reunited after losing touch with each other for a couple of years.

Behavioural change advisor at Sellafield Georgia said: "We’ve known each other for about 15 years.

"I can't remember how we met as we have always known one another and were always hanging around with mutual friends.

"After not seeing each other for a while, we saw one another in Keswick one day and started talking again.

"A few months later, Kieran asked me on a date to Kirkstile Inn.

"Years later, we got engaged in Cyprus on Jan 6, 2023, and decided to get married later this year."

She had a hen do in Liverpool and Windermere whereas Kieran had his stag do in Magaluf and Cockermouth.

The couple decided to have their wedding at St Martin's Church in Bowness-on-Windermere on November 5 - a date it should be easy to remember, remember...

"We had my sister Abbie Youdale and my best friend Saskia May by my side as well as my bridesmaids Georgia Forster, Caitlin Smithson, Amy Irving, Amber Thompson, and my junior bridesmaid was Amelia Sutton," Georgia said.

They had 95-day guests and had an extra 30 evening guests at Low Wood Bay for their evening do.

Favours to the guests included personalised biscuits, chocolates, and sparklers but the big attraction was the cake, which was a three-tiered white and gold leaf cake by Sugar Ruffles.

"We then had our first dance to 'Addicted to You' by Picture This and then enjoyed the night dancing with our guests!" Georgia added.
