Sarah and Reuben’s Lake District Lego wedding


January 14th 2018

“We love the photos… Literally love them!”
Sarah and Rueben


How did this Lego Cuckoo wedding unfold?

Would you be interested in photographing our Lego wedding in the Lake District? What do you think our reply was? Aida and myself are avid collectors of Lego and love playing with the bricks. This wedding theme was straight off our wedding wish list! We couldn’t believe it. Sarah and Rueben were so much fun to photography for. From start to finish their wedding day was full of joy and happy excitement. After a beautiful church wedding the couple moved on to the Daffodil Hotels, where they had turned the function room into a Lego playground. Adult quickly found their inner child and pushed their food aside unfinished as they got lost in their wondrous Lego creation. The evenings entertainment was a 17 piece band playing jazz and swing which drew all the guest to the dance floor to celebrate the Sarah and Rueben’s fabulous day.
What did this Cuckoo Couple think of Cuckoo Wedding Photography?
From being at a family wedding a few years ago where Alistair was the photographer we knew that we would use him at our wedding! We love the way that he captures everyone at their best without posing. The communication from start to finish is exceptional and you never feel in the dark. Even though he had never been to either location he didn’t let that phase him and the photos he took really capture the colour and fun we had created and wanted to share with everyone.

What made you choose The Daffodil Hotel for your wedding?
Once we had chosen the Lake District we were spoilt for choice on the venues as there are all stunning. When we came across The Daffodil Hotel we sat in the garden by the Lake and had afternoon tea. Do we need to say anymore!


Who put the amazing Lego bits in your hair?
My hair was done by Saffy from Aqua Hair in Bowness-on-Windermere. My hair looked great on the day and we had so much fun in the morning all getting ready together!


Where did your flowers come from? was the lego suggestion a shock to them?
The flowers were done by Joanne from Lily Lous of Ambleside – a company local to the venue. They were recommended to us by the hotel and now I would recommend them to anyone! She wasn’t at all phased by the Lego idea over the phone and when we arrived for our initial appointment she had brought her daughters Lego with her! What she created on our bright colour scheme was amazing. I was literally blown away by my bouquet and the attention to detail was super!


Where did your wedding dress come from and why did you choose that one?
My wedding dress came from Tracy at Sugar and Spice Brides in Brackley Northamptonshire. I am not a dress person at all so I thought I was going to find the whole situation really stressful. Tracy was great – she even made it fun (Although I don’t want to admit it!) The dress was the fifth one I tried. It made me feel like a princess.. and who doesn’t want to feel like a princess on there wedding day!


How did you guys meet and how and where did your proposal take place?
We met at Halfords which was where we both worked at the time. Reuben proposed after I had just returned from a work trip away to Le Mans and it was 2.30am. He proposed with Lego of course!


What were your favourite parts of your wedding day?
We loved it all! There isn’t a part of it that we would change or do differently. If I had to pick it would be seeing everyone getting involved, building Lego, playing with Lego and laughing. Reuben’s part was getting married to me! 🙂


What made you choose your details and styling, and of course Lego, for your wedding
We have always known we wanted our day to be a bit different. After the Lego proposal we felt like the theme had to carry on. We love bright colours and have never been ones for the traditional wedding decor. All of the styling was thought up by us, such as the postbox, sweet table, colouring competition, model competition. We just wanted people to have fun!


Who made your amazing Lego wedding cake?
The Lego cake was made for us by a friend Samantha Beers. Not an easy task creating a Lego reveal themed cake and It weighed a ton! We had to transport it safely from our home town to the Lake District and then transfer it from the cake board to our Lego board! It looked amazing and was admired by everyone. It was very special to have a cake made by someone we knew and she did an amazing job!


Who provided your music and why did you choose them?
The live band was a 17 piece big band from the Lake District called The La’al band. We had always known the type of music we wanted so when we found them on You Tube we knew that this was the band to have! We took a risk as we never heard them live before our wedding day. It paid off as they were brilliant!
