Catrin and Andrew were married in 2017 and for this happy couple it really was the best day of their lives. I have had the chance to speak to Catrin a lot and she said she would love to do it all again, with Andrew of course, because of how incredible her day really was.
Catrin tells us about her wedding day highlights and gives us some great information for any bride to be out there.
What do you think was the highlight of your wedding day?
Tell us about your beautiful wedding dress and your hair and make up.
My dress wasn’t anything like what I thought I had ever wanted – I had initially wanted a tea length, lace sleeved, A-line dress, and I had never even considered anything strapless! I added the sleeves as I found the idea of going with my shoulders completely bare a bit scary, but I loved the way they look, especially as we accessorised with matching appliqués. Edith and Winston got me excited about the bit I was most scared about! They looked after me and made sure I was absolutely in love with my dress. Nothing felt like too much trouble and it felt like it was a moment that they really cared about on a personal level.
Flossy and Leigh (Make Up and Hair) were amazing. The service was so professional and yet they were hilarious too. My bridesmaids and I were so happy with how we looked, and I don’t think I could have picked better.
Do you have any advice for brides who are a little nervous and haven’t yet been wedding dress shopping?
Don’t put it off. Dress shopping can seem really daunting and there’ll be times when you do it when you get frustrated you don’t look like that fairytale princess you envisaged at 6, but it can be so rewarding and so fun too. I wish I could do it all over again!
