A BUSINESSWOMAN from West Cumbria has finally found her happy ending after meeting her ‘Mr Wright’.

Kerry Jane McPhee, 47, who owns the Sugar Shack confectionary company in West Cumbria, married Michael Wilson Wright, 54, who works as a planner at Sellafield in a stunning Lake District ceremony last month.

The couple who met through friends, first got together when the groom took Kerry on a date to Grasmere.

They were marred on September 10 at Lodore Falls Hotel on the shores of Derwentwater, Keswick.

The pair got engaged when Michael proposed at a restaurant in Harrogate the day before lockdown as the couple were unable to fly out to Majorca because of the virus, so ended up in Harrogate instead of Spain.

Kerry and Michael were joined by 130 of their closest friends and family in a ceremony that was open to 50 daytime guests and an additional 80 in the evening.

Brian Wright, the best man and groom's brother was joined by Neil Wright, usher and brother of the groom, Gregg McPhee, usher and brother of the bride, as well as Jameson McPhee, page boy and nephew of the bride.

The bridal party consisted of Anneli’s Pickering, the bride's best friend who was the maid of honour on the day, as well as Evie Wright, Lily Wright, Arabella Wright and flower girl Arabella Wright, who are the groom's daughters.

Kerry’s niece Summer McPhee was also included in the bridal party as a bridesmaid on the day.

Among their families and friends the bride and grooms parents, Kerry’s mum and dad Kevin & Anita McPhee from Workington and Michael's mum Sheila Wright also of Workington were pleased to see the newlyweds united on their special day.

The Al Green song Let’s Stay Together was chosen by both the bride and groom as they say they love it and thought it fitting due to the love they have for the song and the way they felt it reflected on them.

The new Mrs Wright, Kerry, said: “It was the first time married for both of us at 47 & 54, but was worth the wait.

“We had the most amazing day and one we will never forget after the bride and six guests caught Covid and had to cancel the honeymoon, but would do it all again in a heartbeat.

“We absolutely wouldn’t change a thing.”

The couple enjoyed a honeymoon on Bikini Island Hotel in Port de Soller, Majorca, eventually getting there after having to cancel after the bride caught Covid at the wedding.
