Jack and I met at secondary school!
Extremely nervous. I was very body conscious at my first appointment as I was trying to lose weight and I had put a lot of pressure on myself.
Excited but really nervous. I had visited a few boutiques before Y.A.P. and I didn’t feel comfortable in any of the dresses. I was starting to worry about the time frame and that I still hadn’t found a style which suited me.
The consultation was amazing. Danni and Heather were so welcoming, kind and made me feel at ease straight away. They talked me through everything and were more than happy for me to try on my ‘perfect’ dress and then when I started to feel defeated they stepped in and used their knowledge and experience to find me my dress.
Danni was absolutely out of this world! She made everything about the experience exciting and not as terrifying as I thought it would be. She was so patient with me and guided me through the whole thing. Heather was also absolutely amazing and she was actually the one who pulled out my dress in the end. The girls even stayed late with me on my first appointment which I thought was customer service on another level.
When I first tried on the dress it didn't quite fit and I was really demotivated and frustrated with myself. Danni advised to go home and think about it and book a second consultation to try it on again. I did this and my goodness, the best advice ever! I came back for my second consultation and it fit! I have never felt a feeling like it before. I absolutely loved it and instantly knew it was ‘The One’ when I seen my entourage’s reaction.
It was more than I ever wished for. I don’t think there are enough adjectives to describe how great this boutique is. Everyone was so helpful, so happy and so wonderful in every way. I hate shopping and don’t enjoy the typical retail experience but in Y.A.P. I could of stayed for hours. It’s so relaxed and you don’t feel under pressure to make an instant decision, absolutely amazing.
I felt confident, this is something I have never felt before in my life. It was an absolutely amazing feeling.
We got married at Le Petit Chateau in Otterburn. I just wanted all of the people I love in one room to share the best day of our lives with us.
I didn’t have a specific colour scheme on the day. The girls wore an Opal grey which meant I could have various colours throughout the flowers etc. We went for soft pastels and blues which I feel went really well with the venue.
I couldn’t fault one of my suppliers, I got super lucky and I can’t thank them enough. We used Nigel John for our photography, he is absolutely unbelievable and my photos are more than I could of imagined. We used The Master Cakesmith for our amazing desert table, her brownies are to die for! Wildflower created the most amazing mantelpieces, bouquets and centrepieces. Bride and Groove made sure the dance floor was never empty and The Chief Chalker created the most beautiful table plans and welcome boards.
