Boo Bride...
Sian Melville

Sian’s visits to BOO were always lots of fun, and her fittings were an absolute joy! She wore a beautiful beaded lace dress from Mark Lesley, with an illusion neckline, feature back and statement train. When it was time for Sian’s first fitting, she fell in love with the dress a little more on every visit.
Dressing The Bride
It was lovely to be able to share the morning with the bridal party as part of our ‘Dressing the bride’ service. You get to be part of something that is so beautiful and intimate. What I loved most about this Bridal Party was how relaxed everyone was. I think most of that was down to Super Amy and her skills at getting things done!

Sian and Joseph were married earlier this year, and here she shares her favourite moments of the day.
Getting Ready
The Elvetham

“Our wedding venue was The Elvetham Hotel in Hampshire. It was a very relaxed feel for the day and the staff there were absolutely amazing. We were so pleased to have chosen this venue because they really cared about us and wanted us to have the best day of our lives.”

“The beautiful bouquets were created by Stephanie Dunn from ‘Rabbit and The Rose’. She is based in Basingstoke”

Flowers
“Debbie from Sugar Box Cakes made our cake. She is on the preferred suppliers list at The Elvetham and her cake was absolutely stunning, it really blew my mind. She was so kind and puts all her effort into her work. Be sure to get in early - she is very popular.”
“Our hair and make up was by Claire Alexander - Flawless Beauty. She is absolutely lovely!”

We asked Sian to give us some tips for future brides to help their day run smoothly.

3 top tips from Sian:

  1. Relax and don’t sweat the small things. It’s easier said than done, but there were things I honestly didn’t even notice on the day.
  2. When you get to the aisle, stop and look around at everyone and really take in the moment before you begin your walk.
  3. Have the ceremony as early in the day as possible to leave more time for photos!
“The most memorable part of the day was seeing my now husbands face as I walked down the aisle and being able to kiss him as Husband & Wife!

And also eating lots of cake when everyone went off to bed at the end of the night.”
Joe and Sian

Congratulations to you both, we wish you every happiness xx
