Sleigh bells ring: Luisa and Ronan’s winter wonderland wedding

Wedding: 06/12/2015

Posted by Kate | 22 February, 2016

What began as schoolyard teasing turned into lasting love for Luisa Lombardi and Ronan Wheeler.

“He spent the first two or three years of school winding me up and picking on me, which probably added to the attraction,” Luisa, 25, recalls.

“We were both emos and into rock music and that’s how we connected.”

Seven years later on a weekend away, Ronan, 24, popped the question. “It was the perfect proposal, no one in sight and I had no idea,” Luisa says.

The Cheshunt, Hertfordshire pair set their hearts on a winter wonderland wedding and married at Down Hall Country House Hotel on December 6, 2015 in front of 100 friends and family.

White, blue and silver hues were a constant theme throughout the wedding to create the winter feel. “It was amazing to see our winter wonderland theme come together, it really was magical and not tacky in any way,” Luisa says.

The couple list the day’s biggest moment as seeing each other for the first time, it helped that Luisa walked down the aisle to a song Ronan had composed for her in year 10.

“We had come so far and shared so much together that becoming husband and wife completes our love story,” Luisa says.
