Our wedding day was truly a day we will never forget! Our venue Castello di Rosciano, settled in the heart of Umbria was something out of a fairy tale. The combination of exceptional wine, mouth-watering food with all our loved ones to celebrate with, made our wedding better than we could have ever imagined.
I thought I knew what style of dress I wanted before I started my search, but I was conscious to keep an open mind. As a jeweler at Harper, my family run jewelry business in Cobham, England, I so often see people try on engagement rings they thought they would love, only to realize it’s not the style for them and subsequently purchase something entirely unexpected! This is precisely what happened in my case. I selected 5 dresses to view prior to arriving at my appointment at May & Grace Bridal Boutique, all a similar style – simple, sleek, figure hugging with a fish-tail design. The first dress I tried on however was given to me by Emilie the owner, to just “see how I feel in something different.” Of course, this was the Paloma Blanca, my Paloma Blanca – and so the first dress I tried on, in the very first boutique I visited, ended up being my dream dress.
