Claire found her dream wedding dress by pure chance! She had gone with her mother to see how much she may have to spend on the perfect gown, and ended up describing a dress that she’d found online and really liked to the shop assistant at Eternal Bride in Warwick. By chance they happened to have the exact dress that Claire had seen on the internet – and best of all, it was in the sale!
The Phil Collins gown had a beautiful quilted effect and featured lace detail underneath. A seamstress was also able to modify it slightly so that it was different than the original.
Both of Claire’s nan’s left money to their granddaughter when they passed away, and Claire had kept this money in a safe place since she was 16. In order to have both of her grandmothers with her in spirit on her wedding day, she spent the money she’d received from them on her wedding dress and shoes. Such a lovely touch and what a lovely way to feel as if your grandparents played a part in the day.
