Rachel & Gareth’s Real Wedding

Gareth and Rachel met through mutual friends whilst on a night out. They’d always joked that they’d tie the knot after ten years together, and true to his word, Gareth popped the question whilst on holiday in Ibiza at sunset after a decade of being together.


Dream Dress

Rachel went dress shopping with her bridesmaids, and found her dress on the first day of their search! She had tried on seven dresses before finding ‘the one’. She knew as soon as she put it on that it was the wedding dress she’d be saying her vows in.


The flattering dress was covered in stunning sparkles, and had vintage style sheer cap sleeves, making it different to any other wedding dress Rachel had tried on. The excited bride brought her mum back to look at it, and she loved it just as much as Rachel did.

She bought the Venus dress from Just For You Bridal in Birmingham. On her wedding day, Rachel received a gift of pearl earrings from Gareth, and she borrowed a pearl bracelet from Gareth’s dad’s partner. A piece of lace which once belonged to her great-great-grandmother was sewn into the lining of the dress.
