Shop 'Til You Drop

I must had gone to around 6 dress shops between Aberdeen where I live now and Essex my home town. It was hard as my mum and sister were in Essex so I took friends with me from Aberdeen. I looked in Ivory Grace in Aberdeen where I first saw the Augusta Jones Skyler dress which was at the second shop I visited.

I fell in love with the Skyler dress but I wanted to keep looking as I didn't want to make a decision too quickly. I took my friend with me to a few other dress shops and realised that with every dress I tried on I kept thinking about the Skyler dress and comparing dresses to it, and that's when I realised that must be the one. I wanted my mum and sister to see it on me first so they flew up to Aberdeen and saw it on me and loved it too and that's when i said yes to the dress.

The Perfect Day

The day was just beautiful, we got married in this cute little church 5 minutes down the road from Pittodrie House where our reception was held. Everyone stayed over the night before and it was a beautiful late summers evening. I was a bit unsure what the weather was going to be like with it being in Scotland but it was the most beautiful day when I woke up. The sun was out all day and we had a lovely service at the church.

 My 3 bridesmaids were my sister (who was maid of honour) and my 2 best friends and then my niece Darcey was my flower girl. My nephew Oliver was a page boy and he looked so cute in his kilt.

After the ceremony, we went back to Pittodrie House from the church and had an acoustic player playing outside for the canap├ęs and prosecco, it was just a beautiful atmosphere.


Wise Words

I would say enjoy every minute of it as the day does go so quickly, and enjoy the planning as you will miss it when its over. Try not to stress about silly little things as on the day you won't even notice them.

Make sure you take a step back and just look at what a lovely day it is with your guest mingling with each other. Also make sure you have at least 15-20 minutes to enjoy some drinks with your guests after the ceremony.
