AFTER growing up on the same street together as children, a couple from Prudhoe have finally tied the knot.

Amy and Josh Potter got married on July 30 this year at the Lodore Fall Hotel in Keswick with Amy saying she was just so pleased to be able to celebrate with friends and family.

Amy, 27 is a student nurse and Josh, 29 works as a machine operator in Prudhoe. He proposed to Amy back in November 2019 at Grasmere in the Lake District.

Although all the stag and hen plans didn’t go according to plan due to the Covid pandemic, Amy did go to “The Comb” with all her friends and family for a long weekend.

But Josh will have to wait until next year, after he had to postpone his trip to Riga, Latvia, to 2022.

The couple chose a very classy theme, with white roses and acrylic for their big day.

Amy’s dress was from the Martina Liana range at The Wedding Dress Company in Corbridge and she had three attendants.

Kara and Sasha, sisters of the couple were bridesmaids and Bella, the couple’s niece, was a flower girl.

Josh had his best friend Dan by his side as best man with five more groomsmen, in Daniel, Stephen, Jamie, Benji and Phil.

The ring came from Ernest Jones and the bouquets were all from Floral Quarter and contained white roses, set amongst green foliage.

Amy said that her favourite moment from the day was a simple one really.

She said: “Just being able to celebrate our wedding finally with our friends and family after such a tough 18 months, with no restrictions.

“We were so lucky to have only had one date.”

The wedding took place at 12.30pm and then 65 guests had canapés and welcome drinks of Prosecco and beer followed by a wedding breakfast. They then had a night event at 7.30pm.

Favours for the guests were of Kendal mint cake and the couple had a three tier white wedding cake.

The bottom layer was decorated in the same lace as the bridesmaid dresses, nd ech layer had a flavour: sticky toffee pudding, Limoncello drizzle and chocolate fudge. It was all made by The Little Kendal Cakery.

Amy and Josh took to the dancefloor to the sounds of Deaf Havana - Heaven, for their first dance and they had plenty of people on hand to capture the special moments on their big day.
