Real Bride | Bespoke Gemma Leakey Dress | Barely There Veil Skylar

We absolutely LOVE hearing from our real brides and there isn't a better time to share a gorgeous wedding than on the most love filled day of the year!

Our real bride Alexandra looks like she had the most amazing day when marrying her best friend in Alexandra Palace in London! I mean wow! What a location! 

Alexandra looked incredible in a beautiful bespoke gown made by her good friend and bridal designer Gemma Leakey! Her dress is a beautiful fitted lace gown which you can tell was made for her! 

Alexandra finished off her bridal look beautifully with our barely there wedding veil Skylar in a floor length. The perfect veil for the perfect dress! She also wore a beautiful welsh gold bracelet gifted to her by her parents and a beautiful pair of diamond earrings as her something borrowed from her lovely aunt. She definitely was a beautiful bride! 

The had the most amazing wedding cake made by her aunt member who came out of retirement to make it especially for them. It isn't a traditional wedding cake but as a book themed cake and big fans of super heroes, it was the perfect cake for them! (I would definitely choose it!) 

Alexandra's Memorable Moments

  • So many! The speeches are one - my friend Legh was our Queen of Ceremonies and introduced all of our speeches. This included speeches from me, groom, 2 best men, my mother in -law and of and my Dad. Everyone had put a lot of time and thought into their speeches and they were actually funny!
  • The silent disco - we were worried this would flop but everybody really enjoyed it.
  • "During the ceremony. At the end, we asked all of our guests to join us for a group pic - this was unplanned. My husband had his phone in his pocket so we have a fantastic selfie of us with everyone behind us."

Thank you so much Alexandra for sharing your special day with us! You looked beautiful and that you both had the most amazing day to start married life! Thank you to Marie Wootton Photography for the gorgeous images of their amazing day!

When I am not working in the gorgeous boutique I love to read a good book and if you can turn these into a movie then I will never leave the cinema. You can often find me in the kitchen baking, playing with our kitten Misty or gaming with my hubby. I also love Giraffes because they feel like family (I'm very tall!) :)
