Sophie and Dan
Leasowe Castle Wedding

Dan and Sophie met when they where 14 and 15 at Dan's nephew's birthday party. They started playing footsies under the table and, 2 days later they went out on their first date! Since then, they've have been joined at the hip!

It was Sophie who proposed to Dan after he passed out at HMS Raleigh. Dan tells me that it was totally out of the blue and that she hadn’t even told her parents before asking him!

They saved up for the next 3 years and booked Thornton Manor for their wedding day. However, that plan went up in flames.... quite literally! Due to Dan being on deployment, it was up to Sophie to rearrange everything. The team at Leasowe Castle came to the rescue and managed to create the perfect day for them!

 

Sophie tells me that she loves Dan's bubbly personality, his cute smile, how handsome he is and how he cares and is always there for her! She loves the way he holds her and calms her, and that he is her best friend!

Dan tells me he loves Sophie's natural beauty, her beautiful eyes, her infectious smile, how caring and loyal she is towards him, and just being able to hold her. He loves how she can light up any room that she is in and that she knows exactly how to read him and what to say to keep him sane!

Their wedding day was on August 11th 2022, one of the hottest days on record... and the perfect day for an epic Leasowe Castle wedding! Our day started with the lads getting ready at Dan's mum's house. The beers were flowing and Dan and his 13 groomsmen were in great spirits! Next up was Sophie and the girls getting ready at Leasowe Castle! Everyone was super relaxed and before long, Sophie was in her dress ready for the proud father of the bride, John to escort her down the aisle, where an emotional Dan was waiting! Rings were exchanged and they had tied the knot! The rest of the day was perfect, with some amazing speeches from Sophie's Dad John, Dan's sister Becky and his best man Adam! They partied in to the night, but not before Sophie and Dan had their first dance and Sophie had shared a father and daughter dance!

 

Brilliant day for a brilliant couple! It was a pleasure to be able to capture their day!
