Nicola and Craig celebrated their love for each other at The Ashes Barns

Nicola and Craig met in a local bar. “It was Christmas 2012, and we were both out for the evening with our friends,” says Nicola. “As it was Craig’s 30th birthday celebration, he was in fancy dress as Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story. I had no idea who he was supposed to be, and his sense of humour was the main thing that attracted me to him.”

Five years after they met, Craig popped the question at their favourite restaurant. “We were enjoying our meal when Craig got up to go to the bathroom and asked me to order him a cheesecake,” shares the bride. “Five minutes later, he came back dressed as Buzz Lightyear singing! The other dinner guests joined in with him, and he surprised me by asking me to be his wife.”
