An enchanting Christmas romance

An enchanting Christmas romance


Langley Castle formed the stunning backdrop for Michelle and Dave’s festive renewal
of vows ceremony, exactly 30 years to the day they first met.

The couple were the lucky winners of the council's Valentine's Day competition, which offered them the chance to renew their vows free of charge.

Held on the 23 December 2013, the beautiful 14th Century castle was the perfect venue for the couple from Simonburn, near Hexham. Nestled in the Northumbrian valley of the South Tyne, the medieval Langley Castle proved to be a truly magical venue for the couple.

Michelle said: “we have often discussed renewing our vows so it was a wonderful surprise to win this competition and the perfect time, our 30th anniversary of meeting. We are both enormously grateful to everyone who has been so kind and helped us plan our special day.”
