NEWLYWEDS said 'I do' in a village church in Cumbria alongside friends and family.

38-year-old social work apprentice Letitia Rose Webber tied the knot to 41-year-old IT technician Martin David Makin.

The couple met on an online date, but their paths eventually crossed as they ended up working in the same building.

"For me, I liked that Martin was really honest, loyal and trustworthy. His compassion for animals and creativity were a big plus, too. My cats approved of him, too," said Letitia.

"Martin just asked me one day if I’d like to go and choose a ring. I had to remind him that he needed to ask if I would marry him, which he did with the ring we chose together."

The couple married on August 19 at Waberthwaite church, a village in Millom, where Letitia is originally from.

Eighty guests, from friends to family, attended the wedding.

The day was planned to be 'as relaxed as possible', and their families did a lot of the details and decoration.  

Letitia said: "My mum did all the table decorations, my sister did the flowers, my dad made the cake stand, my sister-in-law made the cake, and my uncle did the signs. 

"After the service, we had welcome drinks then an amazing buffet meal done by Brockwood Hall, with pies and chips in the evening that went down a storm. We had lawn games in the day and a disco in the evening. 

"My 80-year-old uncle waiting for a knee operation literally danced his shoes off with parts later being retrieved from the dance floor."

After the wedding, the pair spent a few days at Lodore Falls Hotel and Spa but they are planning on having a family holiday next year.

Letitia concluded: "The help and support of our family and friends made the day possible and special."
