Jessie’s Perfect Wedding Day

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.

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!
