WHERE DID YOU MEET:  On match.com! Best £15 I ever spent 😂

WEDDING THEME:  Summery gothic.

THE WEDDING DAY:  We wanted a laid back gothic/skull themed wedding, with all of our family and friends. I adore red and black, and found my dream dress at The Couture Company in Birmingham. Jo is so lovely and unbelievably talented.

I wanted to use local small businesses for the cake and flowers, so Jade’s humble bakes and The Fabulous Florist In the local town of Ledbury were my first choices. I was blown away with what they created for us.

Our local pub/gastric restaurant provided the beautiful reception, and we were blown away with how helpful Naomi and her team were. They were so accommodating and the food was delicious.

We created the day we wanted. No seating plans,  and short speeches to thank the guests for coming. Our 5 kids ( both from previous marriages) played a huge part in the day, and my dad walked me down the aisle, to my late grandparents favourite song “unchained melody”.
The day was unconventional but completely perfect for us.

WHAT DID THE BRIDESMAIDS WEAR: My bridesmaids could wear whatever they liked…as long as it was black!  So we had dresses from Misguided, pretty little thing and anthropology.

ANY GENERAL TIPS: It’s your day so don’t worry too much about what everyone else is doing. Provide enough food, drink and chairs and the rest will fall in to place!

BUDGET SAVING IDEAS: I did my own hair and makeup. My dad drove me to the registry office in his own car, and we’ve delayed our honeymoon, so we don’t have to pay crazy summer holiday prices..

GIFT IDEAS: Be upfront, if you already live together, and don’t want a load of “stuff” ask for vouchers or a cash contribution for your honeymoon. Most people will just want to give you what you want.

WEDDING FAVOURS: We didn’t, but we had a haribo and transfer tattoo station, so people could go away with a little momento of the day!

FINAL THOUGHT’S FOR FUTURE BADASS BRIDES: Relax and enjoy it. Don’t try to please everyone. Also the best top we were given was to take little breather breaks so we could take it in. Best advice ever!
