Liam and I met at work in Tucci (now closed). We were both seeing other people at the time and became just friends. Eventually both of our relationships finished and we were single at the same time, but I only saw Liam as a friend, not that he cared about this at all; he was very persistent and kept asking me to go on a date with him. He would help me with my sales targets (which I didn’t know until later), and we even had a private joke about eggs of all things! I still wouldn’t give him my number so unbeknown to me and the rest of the staff working there he decided to take matters into his own hands and take my number from the employee contact book!! I received the most random text off an unknown number with just the word 'EGGS', I was totally confused and thought it was some sort of weirdo but no it was just my future husband! He didn’t make it easy to guess it was him, but after that I gave in to the date and the rest is history x
Very confused, I didn’t know what would suit me but I was totally excited to try on the beautiful dresses.
I thought I wanted long sleeved very much like a Kate Middleton's dress.
I had a few of the girls helping me along the way and they were all so great, they made me feel like I was doing it right :) I looked around and the girls said to pick 3 styles all different and keep an open mind. Everyone was so helpful and the Y.A.P team really know their stuff as the 4th dress was their choice and it was the one!
I brought my mam and best friend with me on this day. It was actually my first day in the Y.A.P boutique! I felt like my gown was made for me - she was my very own Morilee dress. I felt like I had the elegance of Marilyn Monroe and just the right amount of skin showing. I just knew she was the one!
I felt sooo nervous while I was getting my hair and makeup done, the waiting was making me feel sick, because I was so excited. My mam had surprised me by booking the Y.A.P dressing experience - as soon as Brogan arrived and helped me into my dress I felt at ease - she was amazing! She helped with every little detail and then I knew the day would be amazing. Seeing Liam’s face when I came down the aisle feeling beautiful was the best feeling in the world. I felt like I could take on anything and I loved every moment!
Fun, Amazing & Precious.
Tell us about the perfect accessories …
My dress made the day and to finish off my look I wore very delicate jewellery. This is where my something old came into the wedding…my nana was an amazing woman and she was part of the day through her necklace and ear rings I was wearing. In my hair I had a beautiful hair pin and a veil to the floor with only a single layer. My shoes were my bargain’s of the wedding and I loved them - ivory satin sandals which eventually came off for my dancing feet.
Talk to us about the location and how you styled your day …
Le Petite Chateau is the most amazing location I have ever had the pleasure to stay in never mind have my wedding. It has it all and doesn’t need any help in looking good. The day went perfectly. The main men were in Master Debonair navy check three piece suits with a contrasting beige waistcoat and champagne tie. The bridesmaids also in floor length navy dresses with a Grecian vibe off the shoulder strap.
Any colour schemes/ themes for your big day?
A mixture of rustic meets glam. I had sparkle rose gold table runners with all glass place settings.
