Real Bride: Sarah and Mark

Real Bride: Sarah and Mark

Time to celebrate another happy couple! Congrats to Sarah and Mark who are just 4 weeks away from celebrating their 1-year anniversary 💕

Mark and I got married on 21st September 2019 last year and it was the best day of our lives.

I absolutely loved my Ender Legard ‘UMA’ bodysuit which set off my dress and made me so much more confident and comfortable on the day.

Our day started in Sway, a small village in the New Forest where I grew up. We had our ceremony at St Lukes' Church (Sway) having got ready by the beach.

We held our reception at the Christchurch Harbour Hotel in Mudeford, right by the beach - a place that also held many childhood memories for me and for us as a couple as we had many dates by the beach when we were dating!

The day was the most magical ever with lots of sunshine and all our close friends and family. We had my surfboard as a table plan, posh fish and chips as our main menu, a North versus South canapé selection (as Mark is from the North and I’m from the South), a champagne station, beer boat, mussel shells as place names and New Forest ice cream forming part of our dessert ‘Oops i dropped my ice cream’.

I had my heart set on my Theia Couture Bridal gown having seen it on social media- and then finding out it wasn’t available in the UK. My mum was fantastic and managed to find the brilliant Blackburn Bridal in London who were able to rent the dress for me to try and then order it in.

I wanted the mix of two dresses so I had a cross between their Tara and Charlotte dress which was made bespoke to me by the incredible @franrioslondon London.

My Ender Legard backless body made the whole experience seamless and made me so much more confident and comfortable on the day.
