Amy’s Perfect Wedding Day

How did your partner propose?
We were having a drink in our favourite bar in Santorini watching the sunset, it was
absolutely perfect!

What’s the best piece of advice you received in the run up to your wedding?
Make sure to take time to ourselves throughout the wedding day.

How did you go about finding your wedding dress?
Went to a few shops but then instantly found the one in Fross, it was the first I tried on in
there and fell in love! Ava was just the best person to make the whole experience so
memorable for me, my mum and my mother-in-law, we all had such a fun day looking at all the
dresses and drinking bubbles and it were all so very special.

How many dresses did you try on before you found ‘the one’?
Probably around 10 in the other shops but I knew when I tried this one on in Fross that it
was the one, even though I felt like I should try on others afterwards I just wanted to put
my one back on as I knew 100%!

Do you know the name of your dress designer?
Aire Barcelona

What made you fall in love with the dress that you chose?
The neckline, the lace and the beautiful detail & train.

Did you wear a veil and/or any other bridal accessories?
Yes, veil and hair pearls, bracelet, ear-rings
Tell us a little about your wedding day – the vibe, what inspired you, etc.
We chose to have our wedding close to home as we love where we live. We fell in love with our
venue and it’s elegance the moment we stepped through the door and the fact it was on our
doorstep made it an even easier decision. Our colour theme was blush pink, ivory, white, gold.
Black tuxedos for the men in the bridal party. Blush pink dresses for bridesmaids and flower girls
in white & pink. We loved the fact we were so close to the beach, luckily the sun was shining so we
had photo’s here and a little walk just the two of us which felt so perfect as we love our seafront
walks. We had lots of entertainment throughout the day, including singing from family members
which made it so personal and memorable. We loved every minute of the day and wish we could
do it all over again!

What was your favourite moment from the day itself?
I don’t think I can name just one. so. Walking down the aisle and seeing my husband! Watching
my mum sing at our wedding reception and my husband’s sisters singing during the ceremony!
Having all of our family and friends together! The surprise singing waiter! Our first dance! Dancing
the night away to the amazing band with everyone!

Is there any advice you would be happy to share with other brides?
Try to spend as much time with your new husband as you can throughout the day, we took time to
ourselves a few times during the day and we really needed this, even if it’s brief!

Are you taking a honeymoon and if so when (in relation to your wedding, ie, immediately
after, or sometime later) and what are your plans?

We went to Mykonos the week after and we have also booked honeymoon part 2 for February
next year – a cruise around the Caribbean which we are very excited for!
