Rebecca and Owen
Tell us how you and your partner met. Your ‘love story’…
Owen and I met at University of Edinburgh at one of the Student club nights. About 5 months after meeting, Owen moved to Kenya for 2 year’s but we still stayed in touch. When he came back, we finally got together then and have been ever since! At the time I lived in London and Owen was in Exeter; we commuted for a year and then decided to move to Newcastle to buy a house and start a life together!
How did you feel before your first appointment to try on gowns?
I was nervous but super excited as Y.A.P was my first bridal visit and, although I had in mind what I was looking for, this would be the first time I had properly looked at dresses!
Did you have in mind the style and look you wanted from your gown? If so what was it?
I loved the idea of a full skirt, lace, off white, sleeves with, ideally, a high neck. Grace Kelly’s wedding dress is my favourite of all time so was inspired by her look.
Tell us about your bridal stylist and how the ‘You Are Precious’ consultation helped to find the perfect dress for you…
The service from start to finish was amazing. My bridal consultant, Louise, really listened to me, understood what I was looking for. What I liked about YAP was that they advised me to try on dresses I would have never considered, and this really helped me narrow to the right ‘one’. They made me feel so comfortable and were so warm and friendly. I tried on 4 dresses and number 4 ended up being the one for me!
How did you feel when you found your precious gown & how did you know it was ‘The One’?
I just knew it was what I had envisioned, the detail and the shape were beautiful, and it made me feel amazing so knew it was the one for me!
How did you feel in your amazing Y.A.P gown when you tied the knot?
I felt beyond amazing – perfect for me.
