How did you start planning your wedding? What were the first steps?

I planned my wedding in 10 months, with my husband’s job he only has June off for holidays so we had to have a June wedding so when we arrived back from Dubai it was all going with the planning we knew we wanted to do it quickly and not wait around. My first step was calling the lady who helped me plan my wedding decor Jordan Patrick at Jordana events she advised me on venues etc as well she was a great help to me over the 10 months I couldn’t thank her enough.

How did you find your perfect dress?

I found my perfect dress at the Galia trunk show in London I attended the trunk show in August last year at browns bride and got to meet Sharon. I had seen the dress on the Instagram page and was so excited when I saw it in the shop. Sharon was lovely and soon as I had tried the dress on he said that’s the one when I looked at my mum and saw she was crying then I knew it was the one. It came with a matching veil which was ideal also as I didn’t have the stress of finding one that went with the dress. It was perfect very simple and light and had the embroidered flowers going round the bottom to compliment the long train of the dress.

How was your experience with the Galia Lahav brand?

My experience with Galia has been fantastic. Sharon was so lovely and took my measurements himself in the shop the day I ordered my dress when it arrived in the shop I fell in love with it all over again and couldn’t wait to wear it. Galia dresses are definitely my favourite wedding dresses the detail is second to none and I was so glad I had picked the Galia design after visiting a few shops and not fallen in love with any the pieces. I was so happy with my dress I wish I could wear it again I suppose I need to have a daughter now to pass it down to.
