Laura and Benedict
Tell us how you and your partner met. Your ‘love story’…
We were introduced through friends. We had both just moved to London after graduating. Our first date was in a tiny tapas bar called José where, five years later, Benedict gave me my engagement ring.
How did you feel before your first appointment to try on gowns?
I was so excited to start trying on gowns – I love dressing up!
Did you have in mind the style and look you wanted from your gown? If so what was it?
The style I had in mind was something quite demure with a full skirt – something with a hint of Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly. Pockets were also high on the agenda!
How did your consultation during your appointment help to find the perfect dress for you?
The team were so attentive. They listened to my ideas before pulling out dresses that reflected exactly what I’d described. The girls really know their stuff, so I was also eager to try on other styles that they suggested might work.
Tell us about the ‘You Are Precious’ service you received …
Everyone at YAP is so warm and welcoming. I was made to feel special from the moment I walked through the door. The shop is such a gorgeous space to try on gowns. The team were thoughtful and professional from start to finish.
How did you feel when you found your precious gown & how did you know it was ‘The One’?
I knew my dress was the one when my Mum started to cry as I tried it on… which started me off as well. I still tried on plenty of other styles but kept coming back to the one dress – I never wanted to take it off.
How did you feel in your amazing Y.A.P gown when you tied the knot?
I felt so special, I never wanted to take my dress off!
What three words would you use to describe your overall Y.A.P Bridal Journey?
Personal, warm, sparkling.
