Tell us about your Wedding Dress

I got my dress from all about eve in Chepstow. They were lovely. So helpful. The shop was very professional and has recently been refurbished. I went with my mum and tried some on then came back with my bridesmaids and mother in law as well. It was a really lovely experience and absolutely loved wearing in on the day.

Tell us about your photographer

Maria was brilliant. She met us beforehand to create a schedule for the day and she kept us on time thanks to this. She knew all the photos we wanted and then was fantastic on the day at spotting unique photo opportunities. She is very talented but also a lovely, friendly person who makes you feel comfortable all day. She was continuously checking I was ok which was nice and all the guests commented on how professional she was and lovely. Highly recommend!

Any DIY stories/tutorials you’d like to share?

Instant print was brilliant for stickers, cards, posters. Items arrived very quickly and were really nice. Amazon sells lovely bags at good prices which can be used to make favours.
