7. Before visiting Creatiques did you have an idea of what style of gown you’d like? If so were you surprised by the gown you did choose?

    I wanted sleeves and lace. I walked out with the complete opposite! My Andrew and Rob knew me better than I knew myself

8. Overall how was your Creatiques experience?

         Amazing.  I would recommend to anyone. As a slightly curvy bride, there was still so much choice, and made me feel at ease

9. Highlight of your wedding day?

         Hard to pick, but drinking  Prosecco on the Beach in glorious sunshine, surrounded by everyone I love.

10. Did you have any special touches?

         Lots, I was all about the little touches. I wanted to make it feel as bespoke and personal as I could

11. Do you have any advice for bride’s planning their big day?

        Breathe! Something is bound to go wrong on the day, but it doesn’t matter. You have done everything you can in planning, so now just enjoy it, and take pressure off yourself. Also hire Andrew as your hairdresser if you want to spend your whole morning laughing!

12. In hindsight, would you have done anything differently?

Record my first dance is my only regret, and not to see the awful dancing, but because my mother in laws partner played the guitar and sang for us
