While many brides have sentimental stories around finding their dream wedding dress, Katie’s is particularly emotional.
“I sadly lost my Grandma, who was my best friend, when I was 21,” she explains.
“I was struggling to find my wedding dress and I sat one night and thought of my grandma and asked her to help me find my wedding dress. I’m no artist, but I drew a picture of what I imagined my “perfect dress” to be. The next day I visited wedding boutique Kathryn Trueman and the Enzoani Jodie dress had just arrived in that morning. When I tried it on, I realised it was the dress I had drawn the night before and asked my grandma for. We all had goose bumps when I showed the sales assistants the picture I had drawn.”
The whole wedding had a magical feel, and Katie advises other couples to take time on the day to sit back with your partner and take in the whole day.
“It’s the most special day of your life, and you have all of your family and friends together, so it’s nice to take a moment to appreciate that you’ve shared the day with everyone.”
Photographer Lee Scullion helped the couple document their day, and they were full of praise for him, saying: “We loved Lee from the minute we met him at a wedding fayre. He is such a lovely guy and his work is outstanding.”
