Sarena gave birth to a gorgeous baby girl in the summer of 2009 and wanted to loose a bit of weight before she went shopping for her dress. Just 5 months before the big day Sarena went browsing with a friend that she had met at her NCT baby group who was also in the throes of wedding planning! Finding a shop, and a dress that would be ready in just 5 months was tough, but Donna from Mamfii Bridal in Woking welcomed the challenge. Sarena tried on about a dozen dresses before narrowing her choice down to 2, and then to 1, only to realise that her friend had chosen the very same dress! After starting her search again Sarena purchased a gown designed by Essence of Australia which was tailored slightly to suit her body and style to a T.
Sarena hired professional hair and make-up artist Hanna Wildman who was worked in the music, film, television and editorial industry for a combination of 20 years. Hanna was fantastic and Sarena only ended up having one perfect trial before the wedding.
