Teresa had always been in love with opulent Monique Lhullier wedding dresses, but had to accept it wasn’t a realistic option. Bearing her dream dress style in mind, she set out to find one that could match up to her expectations without costing the same as her entire wedding.
The bride tried on too many dresses to count – wherever she was, if she saw a bridal shop, she’d nip in just in case! After trying on dresses all over the UK, in Ireland and in the UAE, she eventually found a beautiful lace detailed Maggie Sottero dress in Brides of Waterfield, just ten miles from her front door…
Teresa’s best friend from university was her maid of honour, and a further six bridesmaids made up her bridal party. The girls wore full length cream and black dresses from Debenhams, with cosy boleros to ward off the winter chill.
The couple’s adorable daughter had a starring role as a flower girl.
