Magical Winter Wedding

Competition Finalists

LA+Luke

Say hello to LA and Luke. At heart LA is the romantic and Luke the day-dreamer. Together they love travelling and adventuring and plan a wedding day that reflects their personalities, with a filmic theme. Read on to discover more…

LA and Luke

“We met when LA was working in Edinburgh for the first time. She wanted to see the city and someone to see it with. So like any insane person would, she took to the interwebs. Luke said he would take her around Edinburgh in the least creepy way so he won! We got on so well that first night, talking movies and classic cinema, but our time was limited due to LA’s work. We tried our best to make the most of our summer romance, but despite how long we had, it would never be enough.
“Eventually LA had to go back to Toronto, and we were heart broken. All we can say about the pain of leaving each other is that, we never want to experience another airport goodbye again. We did long distance for 6 months until Luke surprised LA in Canada. She didn’t even know he was in the country. Luke had already asked her parents for their blessing, over Skype. He proposed to her in front of her family and friends with fireworks going off in the background. It was perfect.
“Now that we have both made Edinburgh our home and LA is fitting in with the Scottish lifestyle that Luke has always been accustomed to, the future has never been brighter. Still there are things we dearly want. No matter how great or triumphant a love may be, nothing can equal the feeling one gets from saying “My husband”, “My wife” or “Our wedding”. Through We Fell In Love we have that opportunity to show the world, and ourselves, that we don’t have to turn to movies to witness true love, we only have to glance to the other side of the aisle.
“So, whom would you be voting for? You know that couple everyone sees dressed smartly, hair and make up all perfect, holding hands as they walk down the street, gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes? That is not us! We are the couple that are on a road trip to some haunted castle, crumbs all over our laps, excitedly chattering about the campsite we’re about to discover or what new adventure awaits us.
“Luke is a self confessed “day dreamer” often imagining himself in “Westeros”, “Gotham” or “The Shire”. He’s always had the escapist mind frame, and his beloved superhero or fantasy worlds gave him the ability to see his dreams come true. LA is the secret hopeless romantic of the two; initially, adamantly believing she was Belle from “Beauty and the Beast” for the vast majority of her childhood, to moving to the likes of Austen and Dumas. Her tastes may have changed but her unquenchable desire for true love and all its trimmings burns as brightly as always.”

“To ignore something so precious to us both is to ignore who we are as people, and as a couple. Needless to say, film, and the magic it fills us both with, is our theme. We have never been a lavish or an ostentatious couple, so something tasteful, personal and quirky defines who we are and what we want in life. We are striving for a perfect reflection of us; original yet traditional, personal yet appealing, geeky yet recognisable. After all, our holidays consist of us attending Zombie Survival Camp and ghost hunts. Oh and Luke thinks he’s Batman.”

“By voting for us you will be a part of our own love story; because of you, the boy will get the girl next door, the stable boy will get his Princess Buttercup, Jack would fit on the plank, and they can finally ride off into the sunset together, because frankly, my dears, we do give a damn!”
