The bride’s mum came over from her home in the south of France to spend a special mother/daughter day wedding dress shopping. Nicola estimates she tried on around 50 dresses before finding the Maggie Sottero gown she would walk down the aisle in.
She initially specified no lace and no veil, but ended up in a lace gown with a traditional cathedral length veil! Nicola customised her gown with two different belts – one for the day, and a more glittering one for the evening.
Nicola asked her two cousins, her best friend and Andy’s sister to be her bridesmaids. The girls all wore floor length purple satin dresses, which Nicola bought from Marks and Spencer after gaining their approval!
