How did your partner propose?

It was very chilled, i just browsed around at a few of the local boutiques, then fell in love with the Ventura from Fross!
How many dresses did you try on before you found ‘the one’?
Probably about 18 (3 stores).
Do you know the name of your dress designer?
Ventura by Tiffany Bridal
What made you fall in love with the dress that you chose?
The lace train and delicate back.
Did you wear a veil and/or any other bridal accessories?
Yes a long plain veil.
Tell us a little about your wedding day – the vibe, what inspired you, etc.
We had a rustic wedding at my parents farm. We went for a marquee with half the ceiling/ roof see through (fairylights along the panels which looked amazing at night). I used Pinterest to help me with some ideas but other than that i tried to repurpose lots of the items on the farm for example we had a giant ice beer bucket using the tractor and trough!
What was your favourite moment from the day itself?
Coming down the lane in our landrover celebrating with a glass of champagne. The dancing also as the band were great!
Is there any advice you would be happy to share with other brides?
Avoid as much stress as possible. Its easy to get caught up in the silly things just before. Enjoy the special moment with your family and friends too.
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 took a week away in corfu 6 days after but we want to organize a bigger trip to Vietnam next year.
Would you mind sharing details of any other suppliers you used? Ideally by their Instagram handle but if not, just a business name will do!
