How would you describe your Eleganza Experience?
Such a luxurious experience! I wanted to make everything about our wedding day memorable and after searching all the UK for wedding dresses, Eleganza Sposa stuck out to me a lot! It felt like such a dream and just what I pictured from when I was a little girl going wedding dress shopping.
Would you like to share with us your proposal moment, favourite part of planning your wedding or what you have planned for your honeymoon?
Jamie and I had been together six years when we decided to plan a trip to Reykjavik, Iceland over Christmas. I had always wanted to see the northern lights so we planned for a five night trip and little did I know Jamie was planning on proposing under neath the northern lights. He was being quite strange all month before the trip and asking me questions but kept making a statement that we just couldn't have a wedding or anything right now in our lives due to just buying a house so it really did throw me off. On the last night of our trip because of our excursions getting cancelled every night due to the weather, Jamie then asked me to marry him and I was completely not expecting it due to the many conversations we had had.
Tell us more about your Eleganza Iconica gown!
My dress was beautiful. Fitted with an unreal slit that no one was expecting and the most unreal over skirt. No one thought I was going to have a fitted dress and thought I was going to go with something quite plain too. To be honest, I didn't think I would go for this dress either but once I tried it on I just knew I loved it and how amazing I felt in it.
What was your inspiration for your wedding? Did you follow a specific theme or colour palette?
My theme was originally gold and white, but I stuck more to the white theme as I have just always loved this theme for a wedding. To me its just timeless and elegant, looking back on the photos in years to come still thinking its out of this world and the colour palette just really went well with being a destination wedding.
Tell us more about your Big Day!
Our whole day was just so calm. Our wedding didn't start until 4pm which if Im honest was the best thing we did and we had such amazing feedback on this as no one had to wait around in certain times. We had our wedding planners throughout the day coordinating everything and everyone so it made it so much more easier. The whole day,, the weather, the location, the venue everything was just like out of a movie.
What was the most memorable moment?
Our entrance song was Daddy Yankee - Gasolina which no one expected! My flowers were what I dreamed of and Im so glad we went with the company who did them! And mine and my husbands first dance to your song Moulin Rouge Version with our fireworks!
Do you have a favourite picture from your wedding day? Why is this image so special to you?
I have one of me and my three year old daughter underneath my veil having a special moment. She still tells me now "Mummy you looked so beautiful on the teddy day, like a princess, I want to look like that when I'm older".
