Katie’s Perfect Wedding Day

How did your partner propose?

My partner proposed to me overlooking Snowdonia in Wales whilst going for a walk
looking at the beautiful mountain views!

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

To not worry about what others may like and trying to please everyone, remembering the day is
about the two of you.

How did you go about finding your wedding dress?

I had visited two other bridal shops and just knew as soon as I walked into Fross I knew I
would find my perfect dress! Ava made me feel so comfortable and loved the calm relaxing
atmosphere without any pressure.

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

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

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

I loved the dainty straps and the fact it was fitted but went out a tiny bit. I loved the pretty
delicate floral details on there.

Did you wear a veil and/or any other bridal accessories?
No veil, just some bunny tail and dried grass hair clips to match my husbands buttonhole.

What was your favourite moment from the day itself?
Seeing my husband Kieron with the biggest smile as I nervously walked down the aisle.

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

So many people said to make sure you spend time with your husband on the day. We had a
photographer and a videographer and whilst the guests were eating, we sneaked off to have some
sunset photos, and it meant we had more time together. Also, just after the ceremony whilst
guests were getting ready with their confetti,we went into the barn and had a glass of champagne
to celebrate we had just got married. It was amazing to have some time just the two of us.

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?

Kieron is a teacher so We have booked to go to the Dominican Republic in October which
means we can drag out the ‘Wedding Bubble’.
