Bridal Style

Wedding morning

Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be sharing some snaps from our special day. Today, it’s all about my outfit (arguably the most important part!)

The dress

After trying on everything from 1920s style Jenny Packham to Suzanne Neville princess gowns, I fell for Anita, a beautiful lace dress by British designer, Augusta Jones. I customised it ever so slightly with tailoring around my hips and the addition of an ivory silk bow belt to give more definition to my waist.THEWILDS_012

Stockist: Laura May Bridal, Cardiff. Or if you’d like to buy my actual gown, you can get it for half the price, here.

Shoes

I decided on Manolo Blahnik Hangisi satin heels for my “something blue” before even looking at dresses! They are the most beautiful shoes I’ve ever set eyes on!

 Accessories

I wanted to look really romantic so I wore a flower crown. I was a little nervous about how it was going to turn out (and even sent a last minute email to the florist asking her to make it smaller!) but I absolutely LOVED it. In the evening I changed into a handmade headpiece.
