Louise & Charlie’s Real Wedding

Louise and Charlie first met in their local pub in Stalybridge. Love started to bloom when Charlie went on tour to Afghanistan with the army, and by the time he returned home it had fully blossomed. The couple married in a colourful wedding full of personal touches.


Essense of Australia Dress

Louise wanted to find her wedding dress in Chester, as she’d gone to university there. She went to about five shops and tried on around 30 dresses, although she kept going back to one…which just so happened to be the first one she’d tried on!


The bride took her mum, her chief bridesmaid and even her dad with her to get their honest opinions as she searched for her dress. She bought the first dress she tried on, an Essense of Australia beauty with an asymmetrical neckline, from Fairytale Brides in Whitefield.

The dress featured lots of beautiful floral detailing and delicate beading that caught the light.
