How did your partner propose?
On Phi Phi Island, on our 8 year anniversary, after a candlelight dinner.
What’s the best piece of advice you received in the run up to your wedding?
On the day, take a moment to step back and watch what is going on around you. Soak it all up.
How did you go about finding your wedding dress?
I looked at various designers on Pinterest, saw some I liked and then researched bridal boutiques close to me that stocked those designers. Then looked up the boutiques on Instagram and their reviews etc.
How many dresses did you try on before you found ‘the one’?
About 10 I think!
Do you know the name of your dress designer?
What made you fall in love with the dress that you chose?
Everyone else’s reaction to it when I put it on.
Did you wear a veil and/or any other bridal accessories?
Yes I wore a veil and I had a hair pin. Earrings and bracelet too.
Tell us a little about your wedding day – the vibe, what inspired you, etc.
The most important thing to us was to have all our friends and family there to share the day with us for as long as possible. So we chose a venue where everyone could stay the night and we could all have breakfast together in the morning.
What was your favourite moment from the day itself?
Oh my gosh. There are so many. Getting ready with the girls, seeing Josh’s face for the first time, the speeches, the dancing, when our dog surprised us and joined the party!
Is there any advice you would be happy to share with other brides?
Don’t waste the day away trying to capture the ‘perfect’ photo. Soak up every second of your day together.
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 2 days after! We went to Santorini for a week!
