After returning from their romantic engagement holiday in Italy, Lorraine and Kevin, who live in the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham, hand-picked a diamond and then a setting, making it the perfect engagement ring for the bride-to-be. And, as Lorraine felt guilty for receiving a beautiful ring, in return she bought Kevin an iPad – to which her girlfriends thought she was nuts!
When it came to find her dream wedding dress Lorraine turned to magazines and the internet for inspiration. She tried on around 20 different gowns, but ended up loving a dress by Lusan Mandongus in the third store she went to. The staff at Lola Bridal in Northampton made the bride-to-be and her mother feel very at home, and couldn’t have been more supportive to Lorraine during the process of choosing her dream dress.
Lorraine hired an old friend from school to style her hair, but she ended up doing her own make-up and completed her look with a spritz of ‘Narciso Rodriguez for her’ perfume so that she smelled gorgeous as she walked down the aisle towards Kevin.
