Got married at ...

Cooling Castle Barn in Cooling, near Rochester.


The bride wore ...

My beautiful dress was from Birchington Brides in Westgate, it’s a little boutique bridal shop, but after a number of shopping trips elsewhere, this shop had the dress with the wow factor. My shoes were Jimmy Choo (my something blue) and the bridesmaids’ dresses were Lottie Style from H&M Canterbury, customised with bridal belts from Etsy (online).

Jewellery ...

Our rings were from Goldsmiths Canterbury, my earrings were my ‘something borrowed’ and my pearl bracelet was my ‘something old,’ bought from a vintage café, Fredericks Tea Room, opposite the wedding dress shop in Westgate.

Mauritius, a once-in-a-lifetime trip. As well as relaxing on the white beach and enjoying cocktails by the pool, we got the chance to go walking with lions at the Caeslla Safari Park and have our pictures taken with them. We also went quad biking around the safari park and experienced close encounters with zebras, warthogs and ostriches, definitely a memory that won’t be forgotten.
