Your Bristol & Somerset Wedding - April/May 2023 (Issue 94)

I wore Organza by Galina. I orignally went into the shop wanting a completely different style with lots of detail, pearls, the lot! However, after trying on what I thought was my dream dress, I hated it. I felt like I was a walking garment and not me. I adored the simplicity of the gown I chose as it was so comfortable and I felt beautiful in it. My bridesmaids both wore blush-coloured dresses in different silhouettes as it was important to me that they choose a style that made them feel confident and happy. I was so nervous in the morning, which I wasn’t expecting, but as soon as we were together again it was such a relief. We spent the whole day in a bubble of joy. It was almost like a high, as we were so overwhelmed to have all the people we love most together to celebrate with us. I wanted to keep my accessories simple and opted for my family rings, some moon and star clips in my hair to match my daughters’ dresses and my name necklace. Andrew wore a classic style Hugo Boss suit all in black. He paired it with an emerald green tie, which created a very modern look and worked really well. 30
