Claire had always imagined herself in what she describes as a ‘huge toilet roll holder’ style of dress, but felt as an older bride she needed to rethink the style. She was so overwhelmed by all the choice in her local dress shop that she originally left without trying anything. Eventually after popping into a dress shop alone on a whim, she idly browsed the rails and ended up finding ‘the one’!
Claire’s dream dress turned out to be a full length A-line gown by Romantica. It featured a detailed bust with a short train. She teamed her dress with kitten heels from BHS, customised painstakingly with hundreds of Swarovski crystals glued on. The bride’s sparkly tiara, earrings and bracelet all came from Glitzy Secrets. Claire hopes to pass them on to her niece one day.
