The Planning Experience

“It was rather stressful but also super exciting! No matter how organised you think you are, it’s always a mad rush to get everything in place. I enjoyed dress shopping, food tasting and choosing the playlist – and the hen’s night of course! Figuring out the seating chart was least favourite!”

Favourite Moments

“Walking down the aisle was the happiest moment of my life! Spending the day laughing and drinking champagne with the bridesmaids before the wedding was also one of the highlights!”

Finding the Dress

“The search was interesting as I had my mum, sister and best friend with me, all of whom have extremely different tastes! I knew it was ‘the one’ when they all gasped – they all loved it!”

The Styling

“My stepmum did all the styling and she’s incredible! The main feature for our ceremony and bridal table was a large backdrop constructed out of industrial mesh fencing, which was painted white and draped with lots of lush greens and cream flowers.”
