How did you hear about Luella’s when you were engaged?
I googled a lot of wedding dress shops and finally came across the Luella’s site. I was pleased to find it as the dresses were much more unique than those in the other shops.

What items did you get for your big day from Luella’s ?
I bought my beautiful dress from Luella’s.

What did you enjoy most about your Luella’s experience?
The store itself was pretty, and finding my dress was on sample sale was a bonus. Luella’s then put me in touch with a tailors, who did a fabulous service of altering my dress to fit perfectly. The ladies, particularly Dolores, made the experience truly lovely. I ended up buying some super jewellery too.

What was your favourite part of your big day?
There were many favourite moments, but I think our first dance tops them all. My husband doesn’t like to dance in public but on our wedding day he suddenly relaxed, and we had a great first dance – and it got everyone up and dancing. The atmosphere was amazing. I also loved driving away from the church after we were married in my father-in-law’s red Morgan.

What do you love about being married?
Spending more time with my husband and also setting up our home together.

Do you have any other tips, advice, memories?
I really enjoyed the moments leading up to the wedding, as well as the wedding itself. I really enjoyed my hen party with all my close friends. I also enjoyed choosing the flowers with my Mum and a family friend at the Covent Garden Flower Market. The details make the wedding more memorable so it’s worth investing time in creating your vision for your day.
