Amanda & Julian’s Real Wedding

Amanda and Julian had no intention of getting married abroad, but after having visited venues in both the Lake District and Yorkshire, they came up empty handed.  Their wedding ceremony and celebration in Lake Garda turned out to be the most magical, fairytale event ever and there’s nothing that this pair would have changed about their destination wedding.

Due to getting married abroad, Amanda knew that she didn’t want something too heavy or bulky, seeing as she would have to carry it on the plane all the way to Lake Garda.  After trying on around 20 different gowns, Amanda realised that the dresses looked very different on her body – compared to the magazine cut out.  The bride-to-be was delighted however to find a gorgeous Mark Lesley design in the bridalwear shop Elegance of Scholes, which she teamed up with simple Swarovski earrings.


Amanda bought wedding heels from Rainbow Club and she did her own make-up on the day.  To make sure her hair was looking gorgeous too, Amanda contacted a local hair dresser in Malcesine who she met up with when they arrived at the resort, but she didn’t have a practice trial before hand.  To complete her look, the bride-to-be wore an ornate, one sided headband featuring diamantes and pearls which she bought online.
