Tell us a little about you and your partner, what you do,  how did you meet, what you love, what is unique about you and your relationship…

 My partner Pedram is a microbiologist and myself I am a personal trainer. We are a tinder love story a swipe right turned into Mr Right 😂 There’s so many things that are unique about our relationship, we love how we speak the same love language and find communication our strong point. We have many common interests like the gym dates, movies dates, travel and walking our dog! We love spending quality time together and always should each other love every day!

Tell us about your special day, how did you choose the location? Tell us a little about the setting, the styling and some of your favourite details…

 I choose Wallingford Homestead because I’ve always loved character homes, this homestead is huge and surrounded by the most beautiful gardens, I always wanted to get married at an old home in a garden, and once we visited we knew it was perfect for our special day ! There was a pool for our family to swim in, gardens to be explored and many rooms which we filled with family and friends.

Tell us about your wedding dress and any tips you have for future brides….

 My dress was designed by Madison James and was full lace with sequining, it had a stunning low back and long trail, it was stunning and I absolutely love it! Tips would be to get a wedding planner and write everything down, use Pinterest for inspiration and work with incredible vendors as they make the wedding process easier, just like the ladies at Jessica bridal when choosing my dress!

What was the most memorable moment from the day… 

 Would definitely be saying our personal vows, hearing my partner say his for the first time was so special and a memory I’ll cherish forever!

Any advice you would like to share with other couples getting married… 

Don’t stress about the planning process remember it’s your day and you as a couple should have it your way! Use a planner and be organised!
