Tell us about your wedding plans?

Like so many couples, we had a 2020 wedding planned and had to rethink due to Covid. (We’re on third time lucky!) We’d originally booked our dream venue for the reception: a Scottish castle with the most beautiful views out onto Loch Lomond.

Unfortunately, the venue decided against honouring the rebookings for this year, so we had to rethink. We’re still having a big church wedding (as we have large families 😊) but we’ve decided to keep it low key for the reception in the church hall.

Everything happens for a reason and so many couples have been in our position.

How would you describe your bride-style?

My style as a whole is understated; I like timeless and simple pieces. I have a more relaxed approach to my wedding now and that's reflected in my outfit choices.

I love the idea of wearing this Cadie suit for my wedding weekend: it’s striking and comfortable – I’d also wear it again.

I might not have considered a cream suit before but I was inspired by Michelle Pfeiffer and Bianca Jagger - I love their relaxed yet scene-stealing looks.

Wear again wedding style is now at the forefront of so many bride's minds.

Because we all know trying on your wedding looks is the most fun part of getting married.

Which style from the collection did you want to try first?

I was excited to try the Poppy dress as it has such great reviews and the lace detail is beautiful! It made me feel like a million dollars. If you are looking for a more contemporary lace style, this is the dress for you.

The details that make all the difference.

The details that make all the difference.

You can be a more relaxed bride
and still make a huge impact.

What are you looking for from your evening outfit?

I do plan to have a number of outfit changes, to make up for spending the last year or so in loungewear!

For the evening, I want something a bit more fun, something that I can relax and dance in. The fringe detailing on the Elecia dress is stunning, with the longer line creating impact. It felt lovely on!

WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNT FROM THIS EXPERIENCE?

What the last year has taught us is there is nothing more important than friends and family and your health.

It’s so easy to get caught up in all the bells and whistles when planning a large wedding – adding unnecessary stress to the day. We just hope we can have all our family and friends there, that’s what’s important to us.
