Afternoon all. A beautiful real wedding for you, Chrissie is wearing a gorgeous Stewart Parvin gown and I love the colour of the TwoBirds Bridesmaids gowns, one that I don’t often see but photographs beautifully. I love getting back the couple questionnaires mainly because I am nosey but there are certain bits of the day that doesn’t come across through photos, such as, Chrissie and Will offering a free bar but asking for donations to a cause close to their hearts. Often a lavish affair, I always love reading how couples give a little back on their wedding day.

So many to choose from but either the look on my Dad’s face when he first saw me in my dress or the moment all our friends and family cheered us when we said ‘I do!’ We felt very loved!
