#APVIP - KATIE

Katie always knew she would find her dress at Anne Priscilla, she had complete trust in her stylist Ashleigh and together they made Katie’s vision a reality. It was important to Katie that she had a timeless dress but one that also reflected her sense of style and fun personality, hence the fabulous fashion forward cape and super high split. As Katie and her husband celebrate their 1st Anniversary as a married couple it is a complete pleasure to share Katie’s bridal journey.

TELL US ALL ABOUT THE PROPOSAL?  

In Dubai, on our kinda baby-moon (wee boy was 5 months when we went on holiday) and it was a honeymoon for my dad Tom and step mum Lynn. We went shopping for the rings one night then went back to the hotel and had room service and a bottle of champagne. He put the rings in the safe so before we went to sleep I asked him if I could try my ring on again so he went to get it then brought it over to me than just went down on one knee and asked me! Not overall romantic (like some) but lying in bed with my baby and him was all I wanted 

WHEN YOU SAID YES! WHAT DID YOU PLAN FIRST?

The venue!

DESCRIBE YOUR WEDDING STYLE IN 3 WORDS? 

Elegant, classy and timeless - My Cape = A M A Z I N G 

HOW MANY DRESSES DID YOU TRY ON BEFORE FINDING "THE ONE"? 

Oh you would have to ask Ashleigh that?! A LOT maybe 20! I was carrying a lot of baby weight still so didn't feel as confident but that's why I came to Ashleigh and AP. Knew I would only have to visit one shop for my dress and AP was it

HOW DID YOU KNOW WHEN YOU HAD FOUND THE DRESS?  

I cried (is that not what all brides do when they find the one)

WHAT DRESS DID YOU CHOOSE? 

My dress was made at AP after Ashleigh worked her magic by putting a skirt and top together to make my prefect dress 

WHEN YOU WALKED DOWN THE ISLE, WHAT WAS YOUR HUSBANDS REACTION? 

Basically just trying to not cry and hold it together ha-ha. He said he wouldn't cry but he did (A LOT) - That made me happy

WHATS THE BEST RELATIONSHIP ADVICE YOU HAVE EVER RECEIVED? 

Don't go to sleep on an argument 

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE MOMENT IN YOUR WEDDING DAY? 

It was all incredible but walking back down the aisle as man and wife (also my fav photo) Never been as happy or felt as loved, and definitely the speeches

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST DANCE AS MR & MRS? 

A track by our best man The James L'Estraunge Orchestra Called 'Closer' - This song means so much to us and was absolutely perfect 

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO A BRIDE-TO-BE? 

Don't stress about all the little things cause on the big day you don't even give them a second thought. Oh and get canapés put aside for yourself since you'll be getting all your photos done.....I missed out....BIG MISTAKE ha-ha 

WHAT IS THE BEST PART OF BECOMING A MRS? 

Just feels different it's nice
