Sophie did lots of online research and admits to Facebook stalking her married friends’ wedding pictures when deciding on what sort of wedding dress she wanted. By the time she went to buy one she had a clear picture in her mind of what sort of dress she wanted to wear.
Sophie ended up buying the first dress she tried on at bridal boutique Confetti and Lace in Farnham. She tried on another six dresses, but ended up going back to her original choice, a stunning strapless gown by Alfred Sung, with a flattering and elegant sweetheart bodice. She customised the dress with some floral lace and diamante detailing under the bust to make it a truly unique design.
Sophie stitched her grandmother’s wedding ring into her garter as a sentimental touch.
The bride styled her own hair in a sleek, straight bob, but left her make-up to a professional.
