OUR LOVE STORY
Izzie Cooper and Richard Broughton celebrated their nuptials with a literary-themed wedding at St Mary’s Church and Dorfold Hall, Nantwich

We met at Sixth Form in Nantwich in 2005, but we didn’t get together until 2011, says Izzie. For the proposal, we were away after New Year at a lodge in Yorkshire with our dog, Harry. One evening we were talking about holidays and where we should go next. I suggested Santorini, but commented it was more of a honeymoon destination. Rich said ‘someone needs to propose first’. I answered, ‘yes, they do,’ with some impatience – we’d been together for more than six years and I was dropping hints quite heavily by this point. Then he brought out the engagement ring; it was made with stones from my great-grandma's brooch, which made it even more perfect.

We went for a book theme, with our invitations and orders of service designed to look like Pelican books and our table names were all book titles. We had a dusky blue colour scheme with the suits and bridesmaid dresses and in the flowers too.
