Wedding Gown: Maggie Sottero
Wedding Venue: Royal Botanical Garden
Real Abbey Bride (Stephanie) wore a Maggie Sottero gown “As soon as I saw it I knew it was the dress for me. After looking online, I immediately booked an appointment at Abbey Bridal. It was the only dress I tried on and i purchased it right away! It was love at first sight.”
We didn’t have any bridesmaids or groomsmen, as we decided this day was about us and we were going to be center of attention. (“Which I am sure we quite enjoyed”)
Un-traditionally Groom (Mustafa) and i got ready together, as I set up two sections, a mirrored desk and large mirror with my accessories, hair comb, rings and my dress on a mannequin with my veil and the grooms section with a stool, black table with his cufflings, ring and his suit hanging up on customized wall hangers which matched up with mine “bride and groom” and customized ” Mr & Mrs with our wedding date”.
Our ceremony was only our immediate family which was followed by photos in the Botanical garden. Heavy rain held out for us, but it did sprinkle throughout sections of our
The Bride (Stephanie) had organised a funny clip of how the couple met, sections of their travelling and a dream of the bride with the dress being destroyed… (It wasn’t the real dress), it was a special surprise for our guest to enjoy and have a laugh over dinner.
“There is nothing I would have changed. The dress made me feel comfortable throughout the day and it was the most special day of our lives.”
