Today it became official. I really am getting married....

It doesn't matter that I've sent out save the date cards, that I've booked the reception or already promised over 15 grand to various suppliers. Today it became real. As I slipped into the first (of many) white gown, I suddenly felt more grown up than I ever have. And at that moment it truly hit me, I really AM getting married! As ridiculous as it sounds, it took ten kilos of lace, beading and taffeta for it all to feel real.

I've dreamt about my dress for as long as I can remember. Sure the image in my head has changed as I've grown up, but the feelings have always been the same: I'm full of love, happiness and surrounded by my family and friends. Up ahead is a (most likely bearded) man who wants to spend his whole life with me and it starts with this outfit. This dress. This day.

None of these made the shortlist, but I still wanted to share a few of my happy snaps from today. If you are on Instagram please check me out- there will be lots of wedding goodness in the next few months!

My beautiful bridesmaids: Liss, Emma and Libby <3

In seven months I walk down the aisle and marry the man of my dreams in the dress of my imaginations! Bring it on!

What does your dream dress look like?? 


  1. Lovely photos! Hope you found your prefect dress :)

    You're lucky you got to take photos too - on all my hunts for wedding and bridesmaid dresses I was never allowed to use a camera, even when I didn't have my sister with me and wanted to text her a pic for her input. Good to see things have changed :)

  2. Looks like a lot of fun and you have lots to pick from, not to worry you will look FabULos. CONGRATS!!

  3. I'm so happy for you and I cannot wait to see what you wear on your wedding day!!


  4. You look beautiful in those white dresses. I'm so happy for you.

    Have fun :)


  5. YAYUURRRR! So excited for you and Ben.... definitely one of the most cute and fun couples I have ever met and you guys totally rocked that white cruise.... xoxox

  6. You will be such an amazing bride. Wish you both all the best. :)

    ♡ Mel xoxo

  7. Ah man, you're going to be so pretty Ben's going to cry a river! x x

  8. Eeek, you must be so excited. You look lovely in every single dress. I still haven't gone to try on wedding dresses, I keep meaning to do it and then I just never get around to it. I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with a dark gown but I'm not 100% certain yet.
