Claire initially thought she would go for a modern funky wedding dress and couldn’t imagine herself wearing a traditional long gown. However, once the venue had been chosen she thought it was only appropriate to wear a long sophisticated dress. Claire fell in love with the first wedding dress she tried on. It had been designed by Donna Salado, had flower detailing at the side and was bought from Crystal Weddings in Norwich. Claire spent more than expected on her wedding jewellery but compromised on her sparkly, and very comfortable wedding shoes which she found in a summer sale from Faith.
