Nicola chose her closest friend Julie to be her matron of honour, and her sister plus 2 other friends to be bridesmaids. She also had her little girl who is 2.5 years old and the 2 daughters of one of the bridesmaids to be flower girls. The bridesmaids wore black floor length Grecian style dresses from John Lewis with diamante drop necklaces, earrings and bracelet cuffs to complete the look.
Nicola hired a professional hair and make-up artist and had just one trial before the wedding day. Nicola had her hair put up as it has a tendency to go curly. Wearing it up meant she could forget about keeping it in order during the course of the day and night.
