Nicola and Kieron had 19 months to plan their wedding which gave the bride plenty of time to find the perfect wedding dress. Nicola knew she wanted something different, but wasn't sure of the exact style. She bought all of the bridal magazines and even went to a bridal fair with Kieron looking for inspiration. They didn't find a dress, but they did find their fabulous photographer, Mike Garrard.
After visiting several bridalwear shops and trying on a collection of 12 different dresses from many different designers Nicola tried on Ian Stuart’s ‘Bellini’ which was just perfect. The strapless fitted bodice of the gown was completely beaded with swirls of Swarovski crystals, diamante and tiny glass beads. The A-line skirt was caught to one side with a dramatic swirl of crystals, all in a soft mint green colour. After she had bought her wedding dress from Belle Bridal in London, Nicola went to another wedding shop and tried on a further two dresses. She then realised that she had definitely made the right decision!
