I’m not sure what possessed me at the time to want to make my own dress in only a few months, but I’m glad I did. It was a really great experience and I learnt so much about dressmaking.
I was lucky to have some help from Sarah Belinda who knows loads about wedding dresses – it was invaluable, let me tell you !
Our wedding photographer was Laura Babb she was really great to have around. Have a peek at her site..
One night whilst sitting at my sewing machine, literally covered in silk dupion threads I did question my sanity…. but got there in the end !
Andy wore a Paul Smith suit – he looked very handsome and rather retro :)
We got married at The Theatre Royal Bury in St Edmunds and it was an amazing day. The crew were so helpful. We chose this venue partly because it felt right as both of us come from an entertainment background *jazz hands* although it was quite low key and easy going really.
The wedding was inspired by the 50s, my love of kitsch and of course the theatre itself… Dahhhling :)
Our light up letters hired from the super lovely company Vowed and Amazed..
The main thing for us was that everyone felt at ease and that we avoided doing anything that was alien to us. It’s sometimes hard when you’re in the thick of it but it’s important to be yourselves… in my opinion.
How clever is my friend Juliet ? The cake she made for us was just so amazing. The stage looked really effective once the curtains were back with the pom poms and disco balls hovering above us all whilst we ate curry and then some theatre ice creams…. :)Miserable Man sang at the ceremony and he was brilliant. So chilled. I really recommend our band later in the evening too – Ready Steady Go.
