Where did you find inspiration for your decorations, and what did you decide on?

For inspiration, I used the internet and wedding magazines to give me ideas for colours and decoration. I also attended wedding fayres, which were a great help.

Tell us about the bridal accessories.

The veil was long with diamantes scattered over it and the headpiece matched with the sparkly veil. I used pearls and diamonds for my jewellery; it was a matching necklace, bracelet and earrings set. My shoes were silver and also sparkly.
