How did your partner propose? Alex proposed at the top of the Mont Chéry in France at sunrise, in front of the Mont Blanc. It was such a special moment, although I had to earn it hiking up the mountain at 5am!

What’s the best piece of advice you received in the run up to your wedding? To enjoy the run up as well as the day itself. The day does happen very quickly, but I enjoyed so many things in the run up so it felt bigger than the day. My mum and I made days out of dress shopping, shoe shopping, hair accessory shopping, bridesmaid dress shopping and then Alex and I enjoyed the food tasting, wine tasting and doing an engagement shoot with our photographer, Charlotte.

How did you go about finding your wedding dress? I always wanted a princess style dress with a bow on the back. I did some research on designers that had that style and then looked up bridal stores that stocked those designers. I found that was the best way to avoid trying on too many different styles of dresses and getting overwhelmed.


How many dresses did you try on before you found ‘the one’? I tried about 8 dresses in total (some were just for fun!) but I’d say there were only two I knew were real contenders and as soon as I tried on the Justin Alexander dress I knew it was the one, it had all the details I was looking for in my wedding dress.


Do you know the name of your dress designer? Justin Alexander

What made you fall in love with the dress that you chose? The floral detail on the skirt, the deep V back, the bow and the drama of the train!


Did you wear a veil and/or any other bridal accessories? I had a custom length veil made and a hair accessory from Eden b studio.

Tell us a little about your wedding day – the vibe, what inspired you, etc.

Everyone has always laughed at me that I think life is like a rom com; sentimental, romantic and happy. I think that summed up the vibe for the day and ultimately the most important thing to me was getting married and having all my friends and family there to celebrate. I loved the personal touches; my mum made our wedding cake and my Uncle made the bouquets.

What was your favourite moment from the day itself? Walking down the aisle with my Dad and seeing Alex at the end!


Is there any advice you would be happy to share with other brides? To remember that the most important thing is you’re getting married and not to stress too much about everything else. Try to enjoy the run up to the wedding as much as possible so you create memories beyond just the day.

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 Argentina the day after our wedding and had such a lovely time exploring a part of the world we’d never been with and enjoying all the wine!

How did your partner propose? He spent the day with my children decorating the kitchen with rose petals balloons and banners, then they all surprised me when I came home

What’s the best piece of advice you received in the run up to your wedding? To arrange the day that we wanted, rather than what everyone else thought we should have.

How did you go about finding your wedding dress? I looked online and found several I liked and then came and tried them on in store


How many dresses did you try on before you found ‘the one’? It was the second dress I tried on, and was one of the one’s I had liked online.


Do you know the name of your dress designer? Modeca

What made you fall in love with the dress that you chose? It is simple, elegant, floaty and I loved the sleeves and cuffs.


Did you wear a veil and/or any other bridal accessories? I wore a headband with gold leaves and pearls on, and pearl flower pins that matched the pearls on my dress. I bought the headband after seeing the gorgeous headbands Kate and Princess Charlotte wore at the coronation!

Tell us a little about your wedding day – the vibe, what inspired you, etc.

What we really wanted for our wedding day was it to be relaxed, fun, stylish, not at all pretentious, something for everyone to enjoy.  We chose a stylish venue at Alexander House and planned our ceremony, and the whole vibe to be a relaxed but classy wedding, with lots of fun and to give everyone the freedom to enjoy it however the wanted.  We had quite a lot of children who were going to attend as they are an important part of our lives, and we wanted them to feel just as included as the adults.  We had an outdoor wedding at the Gazebo in the gardens, followed by a party.  We didn’t want the formalities of a sit down meal, table plans and suchlike, we wanted everyone to be able to relax and enjoy the evening however they wanted to.

What was your favourite moment from the day itself? The smile that Matthew and I shared after I had walked down the aisle and stood next to him waiting to be married.


Is there any advice you would be happy to share with other brides? Make sure you feel like youself in your wedding dress and with your hair and makeup.

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 Santorini just over a week after the wedding. (we had my twins birthday 4 days after the wedding, so wanted to celebrate that before going away)

Leigh’s Perfect Wedding Day

Feb 08, 2023

How did your partner propose?

I was taken to Quaglinos in London for a lovely meal and live acoustic music.

What’s the best piece of advice you received in the run up to your wedding?
Don’t feel you have to follow tradition or feel like you have to please people

How did you go about finding your wedding dress?
Visited a couple of shops and tried on variety of dresses, even after I found the one.

How many dresses did you try on before you found ‘the one’?
14? I had seen the dress I wanted online, but choose to ride through the experience of trying on different types of dresses


Do you know the name of your dress designer?
Madi Lane


What made you fall in love with the dress that you chose?
Long Sleeved and laced

Did you wear a veil and/or any other bridal accessories?
I wore my mum’s veil which was altered slighlty.


Tell us a little about your wedding day – the vibe, what inspired you, etc.
We got married in a barn in the South downs. The theme was rustic, autumnal and subtle. I love being creative and wanted to ensure a vintage vibe was seen through my day. We used vintage frames on a pallet for our table plan, I hand painted the order of the service on wooden planks, we wrote on a mirror for our Welcome sign. I liked the slight mismatch of items and how it didn’t all match completely.

What was your favourite moment from the day itself?
Just after the ceremony, where we both took in how we felt and had the moment to ourselves.

Is there any advice you would be happy to share with other brides?
Do not compare to anything on social media, it is so hard to get drawn in and want it all.


 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 decided to go on a city break to Barcelona a couple of days after the wedding and then enjoy the run up to Christmas. We have booked to go on our official honeymoon in October 2023 to Asia.

How did your partner propose?  
It was very romantic and Josh put a lot of thought into it! I have been visiting a certain area of Spain since I was a little girl and there is a particular walk I always do when I go which is from one beach bay to another with amazing views on route. When I first took Josh to Spain I took him on the walk, telling him all the fond memories I had of the walk….Josh logged this in his memory bank as could see how much the walk meant to me and knew one day he would propose to me there. Years later the time had finally come (but I had NO idea)…Josh planned a “date night” for us to go on the walk followed by a meal at our favourite restaurant…during the walk he suggested we stop for a photo, we took some photos and then he just held me while saying lots of lovely things before getting on one knee and asking me to marry him. It was a magical moment and I was blown away (and I course said YES)! We then headed to the beach where my family and friends were waiting (also arranged by Josh) for us to all celebrate with a drink before Josh and I headed to the restaurant. It was perfect!    

What’s the best piece of advice you received in the run up to your wedding?

It is all a bit of a blur now…but I did find the whole wedding planning very stressfully despite everyone’s advice being to not get stressed and enjoy the ride! 


How did you go about finding your wedding dress? 

I had a Pinterest board full of styles I liked and simply started booking up places locally and/or recommend by friends and family. 


How many dresses did you try on before you found ‘the one’?

I am not going to lie I tried on over 30 dresses which is way too much! I wanted to give every style a go but then had the issue that I loved basically everything I tried and got stuck choosing between two very different styles. 


Do you know the name of your dress designer?

Madison James


What made you fall in love with the dress that you chose?

So many things made me fall in love with it…the style, the fit, the lace design was stunning and unique as it was made up of tiny beads! It also has a timeless feel. 


Did you wear a veil and/or any other bridal accessories?

The dress was so stunning (especially at the back) so I decided not to wear a veil as it would distract and cover up the dress. I simply wore a bridal hair accessory and some elegant jewellery. 


Tell us a little about your wedding day – the vibe, what inspired you, etc.

Our wedding day was amazing and we are so pleased with how it turned out. We got married at Buxted Park Hotel and the broad theme was “English elegance with a touch of botanical”. We kept our colour scheme very simple with lots of green foliage and white flowers. The bridesmaids where in a blush/champagne dresses and the groomsman were in black dinner suits. Luckily the weather was on our side so we were able to have an outdoor ceremony followed by reception drinks on the lawns while being serenaded by a 3 piece jazz band called The Jazz Trio. The wedding breakfast was a sit down 3 course meal (with speeches in between courses to help break them up). For the evening we had an incredible 13 piece band called The Blunter Brothers who were brilliant and got everyone dancing!  


What was your favourite moment from the day itself?

We loved the whole day from start to finish so it is hard to pick a favourite moment…but it has to be when we said our wedding vows! 


Is there any advice you would be happy to share with other brides?

…again it is all a bit of a blur now and I think everyone’s wedding journey is so different it is hard to give any advice apart from the usual “don’t get stressed and enjoy the journey”…which I did not listen to haha! 


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?

The day after the wedding we hosted an after party at my parents house were we had a bouncy castle, soft play, princess appearance, a couple of musicians playing acoustic guitars and fire engine cooking up home made pizzas…I even wore my wedding dress again as I loved it so much and thought why the hell not! It was a great day to reminisce with friends and family. The day after we headed off on our honeymoon where we spent the first week in Santorin and the second week in Crete.

Katrice’s Perfect Wedding Day

How did your partner propose?
He took me away to Athens in Greece and when we arrived we got changed and we went to a huge hill/mount which overlooked all of the city and when i turned around he was on one knee. 

What’s the best piece of advice you received in the run up to your wedding?
Never leave anything till last minute get everything done as soon as you can so on the weeks leading up you can relax and enjoy the time before you become a wife. 

How did you go about finding your wedding dress?
I had found Fross on instagram a couple of years prior to being engaged as I loved the designers they had so as soon as i was engaged I knew I needed to book a VIP appointment. I also live 3 hours away. 

How many dresses did you try on before you found ‘the one’?
I tried 8/9 with you and whittled it down to a top 3, but tried on 6 at another shop and didn’t like any of them 

Do you know the name of your dress designer?
Maddison James

What made you fall in love with the dress that you chose?
It made me feel beautiful and like a proper bride, it hugged where i wanted it to and then made me look my best.

Did you wear a veil and/or any other bridal accessories?
I got a custom made veil and also a diamonte headband for the evening

Tell us a little about your wedding day – the vibe, what inspired you, etc.
I knew where I wanted to get married 5 years before I was proposed to, holkham hall was my dream venue, i went for classic feel with stunning florals. I loved lanterns and flowers, I also fell in love with sage green and dusty pink together.

What was your favourite moment from the day itself?
I loved the actual wedding ceremony as seeing my husband at the end of the aisle was the moment I always waited for. 

Is there any advice you would be happy to share with other brides?
Be overly prepared (I was like Monica from friends) as i got to relax the week to my wedding, also know that not everything will be perfect but that’s fine you won’t even be bothered about it on the day. 

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 are going to a few places in America This August so we will be there for our 1st wedding anniversary

 A lot 🙈 probably over 30!

Tell us a little about your wedding day – the vibe, what inspired you, etc.

We got married abroad in Cyprus with a small group of around 30 of our closest friends and family. We wanted a really relaxed and chilled day and this is exactly what we had. The whole day was so stress free and we just had the best time!

What was your favourite moment from the day itself?

 The day was absolutely perfect but the memory I’ll never forget was walking down the aisle. My daughters and god daughter as my flower girls and my best friend and sister as bridesmaids. My best friend sang us down the aisle and was incredible, it was the most special moment! 

Is there any advice you would be happy to share with other brides?

Not to stress about the small things! You or your guest won’t notice them on the day!

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 Turkey for a week, 1 week after the wedding. We went all inclusive, adults only (left the kids at home😂) and had the most amazing time.

Jan 03, 2023

How did your partner propose?

On Branscombe beach in Devon.


What’s the best piece of advice you received in the run up to your wedding?
Take a moment for both of you on the big day to appreciate what’s around you.

How did you go about finding your wedding dress?

Researched different shops online and went for dress fittings until I found the one.

How many dresses did you try on before you found ‘the one’?

Around 10.

Do you know the name of your dress designer?

Madi Lane.

What made you fall in love with the dress that you chose?
I adored the floral lace design which I thought was so unique and I loved how delicate it was. I also loved the long train.

Did you wear a veil and/or any other bridal accessories?
Yes I wore a veil.

Tell us a little about your wedding day – the vibe, what inspired you, etc.
I know that it has probably been said many times but it genuinely was the best day of our lives, having everyone around us that we love, the atmosphere, the venue, the hottest day in November and the fact that the dance floor was never empty!

What was your favourite moment from the day itself?
The ceremony.

Is there any advice you would be happy to share with other brides?
Embrace the planning and run up to the wedding as it comes around so quickly and it’s sad once it’s all over.

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 on a honeymoon to Cuba 2 days after our wedding.

How did your partner propose?

In Iceland! We were snowmobiling on the largest glacier and just as the sun was setting he said let’s take a picture over here, next thing I know he was on one knee and all I could say was “OMG!” It was truly breathtaking! 


What’s the best piece of advice you received in the run up to your wedding?

It’s your day, so choose exactly what you want for it and remember to have a moment just you two in the evening to take it all in! 


How did you go about finding your wedding dress?

I came to Fross Wedding collections and had such an fantastic experience that I didn’t look anywhere else! 


How many dresses did you try on before you found ‘the one’?

Around 6! 


Do you know the name of your dress designer?

Justin Alexander, and then my second dress worn to my UK wedding and the evening of France was Stella York. 


What made you fall in love with the dress that you chose?

The detail and the way it felt when I put it on! I didn’t want a strapless dress but had seen the lace and beading and really loved the shape of the dress. When it was on I just knew, it felt so different to all of the others and then Fross helped me to realise we could custom make sleeves to build exactly the dress I had pictured in my head! 


Did you wear a veil and/or any other bridal accessories?

Yes a cathedral length veil


Tell us a little about your wedding day – the vibe, what inspired you, etc.

When we imagined getting married we never pictured it being in the UK, we wanted something that was a real weekend of celebration, not over in a day. We then looked at where had multiple travel options, and fell in love with the idea of a chateau in France, we found the venue online and went to view a few with our wedding planners Marry Me in France a few months later. The fairytale chateau had our hearts from the start. It was so chilled, all about family and the kids having the best time too. I wanted timeless elegance but modern so kept flowers and decor more traditional roses, peonies and hydrangea. We lit the chateau so it was magical in the evening and for the barn, and then I had @creationsandcelebrationsltd do a full balloon centre for the dancing. We kept some French traditions of a later wedding (3pm) entering to white napkins being swung, and crocembouche instead of wedding cake! We all ended up in the pool at 2:30am! Most of our guests stayed at the chateau and surrounding buildings on site from Thursday to Monday, we held a pizza night the night before the wedding which was so fun and then the day after had a pool party BBQ which was AMAZING. So much good food and fun! Finished the weekend off beautifully star gazing on the last night with all our best friends.

 What was your favourite moment from the day itself?

It’s so hard to choose! Probably the dinner and speeches, the speeches blew us away they were so funny yet so emotional and there wasn’t a dry eye in the room! Just to have all of the people who mean the most to us in one room full of so much love was incredible! 


Is there any advice you would be happy to share with other brides?

Aim to be ready an hour before the ceremony so you have time for any last minute touch ups and photos etc, it goes so quickly so you need more time then you think! 


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?

Yes, Jack surprised me with a trip to Santorini in September in my wedding card that I opened in the morning! We stayed in France for another week after the wedding too which was lovely.

How did your partner propose?

We were in Scotland on a steam train having champagne afternoon tea and were unexpectedly in a carriage all to ourselves. After the train was on its return journey and the engine attached to our carriage, Alan got down on one knee and proposed!

What’s the best piece of advice you received in the run-up to your wedding?

Remember on the day to make time for you as a couple away from your guests.

How did you go about finding your wedding dress?

 Firstly, I knew I wanted to go to a boutique near my Mum and Dad, as well as the venue. After researching the different boutiques and the designers they stocked, I chose Fross as there was a good selection of different styles and brands I liked the look of at fair prices.

How many dresses did you try on before you found ‘the one?
I think between Mum, myself, and my bridesmaid Rhi we selected 8 dresses for me to try on. However, I ended up picking the first dress.

Do you know the name of your dress designer?

 Madi Lane

What made you fall in love with the dress that you chose?
I felt beautiful in the dress and got ‘the feeling’ when I looked in the mirror. The detailing is gorgeous, particularly on the back and train.

Did you wear a veil and/or any other bridal accessories?
No veil, but I did wear some pearl drop earrings.

Tell us a little about your wedding day – the vibe, what inspired you, etc.

 We wanted a day when our guests were going to have a great party with us. It was lovely to turn around to see everyone chatting and getting along.

What was your favorite moment from the day itself?
I genuinely loved the whole day. What was very memorable was all our guests in a circle around us on the dance floor at the end of the night, singing along to Hey Jude.

Is there any advice you would be happy to share with other brides?
Make sure all your suppliers know your expectations of them for the day so you can leave it to the experts and enjoy it. Turn your phone off!

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?

 Yes – we were married on Saturday and flew out to Kenya on Tuesday. We went on a safari in the Masai Mara, followed by a week on the coast in Watamu.
