Helen bought her fabulous Hollywood Dreams wedding dress from a bridalwear shop in Alderley Edge after having had no real plans to buy a dress on that particular day! But, within minutes of arriving at the sample sale that she’d taken her mum along to, Helen spotted the perfect dress. It was the sparkle factor that had first attracted her to this particular gown, but after having tried it on she fell in love instantly and simply had to buy this gown!
Helen hid her wedding dress under the spare bed for the next 18 months, but managed to design her own wedding shoes in the meantime. She bought a simple pair of wedding shoes from Debenhams, but then spent around 10 hours decorating the shoes with pearls and diamantes by hand! It took ages, but was totally worth it!
Helen’s two bridesmaids were best friends Kate and Katherine who she’d known her entire life. As Helen and Peter had chosen a navy blue colour scheme for their winter wedding it made sense to have the bridesmaids match the scheme. Their dresses came from BHS and were a gorgeous strapless sapphire blue shade.
