Katie & Robert’s Real Wedding

Robert and Katie met in 1997 when the pair started secondary school together. Fast forward a few years and the friendship developed into a six year relationship, which led to a romantic Christmas day proposal. The couple had a ten month engagement before tying the knot at Northbrook Park in Surrey.


Allure Bridal Wedding Dress

Katie visited her sister in Miami to try on wedding dresses, so she could share the experience. She tried on a total of six dresses before finding one she could not get out of her head. It was two sizes two small in the Miami boutique, so she set about tracking it down in her size in the UK, so she could see what it really looked like.


She found the beautiful, fishtail gown by Allure Bridal in Orange Blossom Bridal in Sydenham. The champagne coloured gown, which featured a fitted lace bodice and a flared tulle skirt, looked stunning on Katie, and ensured no one could take their eyes off her as she walked down the aisle on the arm of her father at Northbrook Park. She entered to an instrumental version of Elbow’s ‘One Day Like This’, and she and Robert exchanged rings bought from Duncan Eves Jewellers.
