As this was our second time around and we aren’t getting any younger we didn’t want too much fuss. We had been engaged 2 years and obviously with Covid that was the best decision to wait for our big day.
Tell us about your wedding dress experience, and why did you choose your wedding dress.
Being a mature bride I did not want to show too much of my body. I wanted to feel comfortable and be able to dance the night away. Helen was fab helping me decide. It was tough as we didn’t have a great deal of time to order a dress because of the date and lockdown. I tried quite a few dresses but with Helen’s guidance, she found my perfect dress. It was in the sale, off the rail but it was immaculate. Alterations would have to be made but it was beautiful. The feeling when you put on a dress that does give you that feeling of it’s the one, certainly is correct. I cannot thank the wonderful ladies at Isabelle Grace enough for finding me my perfect dress!
Describe your wedding day. Where, when, how…
We wanted a day where everyone enjoyed it as much as we would. As it had been a long time coming and so much uncertainty. The venue (The Ravenswood) was great as we had the whole day there. The ceremony was outside just before the rain came, so perfect timing. We had beautiful autumnal colours of burgundy, dusky pink and cream. No best men or bridesmaids as keeping it simple but fun.
Favourite part of your wedding day?
It was such a special fun amazing day, I don’t have one special moment as it was all amazing. We wish the day could have been longer!
