LAuRA AnD SERELLE I wore a Ronald Joyce wedding gown from Signature Brides in Hythe. I kept my dress a surprise from Serelle before the day. I didn’t have a veil as I didn’t really like the idea of one, but chose a pretty headband with Swarovski crystals and pearls. Serelle had her suit made by Butch Clothing Company. It cost quite a lot of money, but when she’d tried to contact other tailors, most companies either asked ‘him’ to come in for a fitting or were very confused and uninterested on the phone. Designing her suit – an all- black three-piece with satin lapels – was a fun process. It looked amazing! Her dad and her cousin, who was a page boy, wore similar suits. I had four bridesmaids – both of our sisters and two of Serelle’s cousins. I was expecting to walk down the aisle on my own; then on the day my dad decided that he wanted to walk down with me, which was really lovely. We were expecting my mum to do a speech along with Serelle’s mum, but my dad gave a speech instead which was such a nice surprise. After the wedding breakfast, we had a reception at the same venue, Howfield Manor. This was quite traditional, involving a DJ and lots of alcohol! Everyone kept saying how happy they were. The whole atmosphere was joyful and friendly, pink weddings magazine » 63
