Helen & Darran’s Wedding

Helen & Darran’s Wedding day!!

Helen and Darran got married back in November last year. I asked Helen all about their special day, I hope you enjoy reading all about it. 

We loved helping Helen find her perfect dress for her big day! These images capture the love between them both.

Where was the proposal and tell us a little about this?

On Christmas Day 2017. We were just about to leave to head to my parents and Darran called me into our Dining Room. He was on his knees, half under the Christmas tree and I thought he’d hurt his back, but he spun round on one knee with ring in hand and proposed to me! I said yes and burst into tears!

Tell us about your Dress Me Pretty experience and finding your dress:

It was fantastic from start to finish. The first dress that Amy chose for me, I tried it on and it was the one! I did try a second, just to reconfirm the first choice and that was that. It felt so right and knew she was right.
I cried and just felt so special. A magical moment.

How did you feel on your big day?:

Totally amazing. It was the best day of my whole life. Couldn’t wait to get my dress on and did not want to take it off. I felt like a complete princess and I totally loved being a bride.


What is your special memory of the day?:

So very many to chose from, the whole day was filled with so many magical moments. Singing for my husband as part of my wedding speech, “Secret Love” by Doris Day, as a total surprise was wonderful, but nerve wracking – to see the look on his face, was priceless!


Any advice you would give to future brides-to-be?:

Stay calm. Make lists and cross things off when it’s complete. But above all, enjoy everything. I loved planning & organising our wedding day and would do it all again in a heartbeat. And remember it’s your special day.
