I found my dresses online, both of them from American designers – Allure and Janique. A friend living in New York helped with the shipping. I didn’t try any other dresses apart from the ones I’d chosen online, so far I’ve been very lucky online – online dating, where I met Toby and online dress purchases.

The Ceremony

We didn’t have any bridesmaids. We wanted all the ladies at the wedding to feel special. We only had one groomsman.

The photos were taken by Sean Pollock from Perfect Day Photography. He also did a fantastic job photographing our civil wedding in Chelsea in London. The videography was by Daniele Cribari.

What made it unique and special

The fact that every single guest had a special place in our hearts, how wonderful is to be with all the people you care and love, all together making the day unforgettable! I keep replaying this moment in my head over and over again.

Advice to other brides-to-be

Hire a Wedding Planner. We didn’t in the end but I wish we had as I would have had more time to enjoy the whole process.
