Tell us how you and your partner met. Your ‘love story’…”

We met in Newcastle, on a Saturday night, back in January 2016.

How did you feel before your first appointment to try on gowns?

I was so excited! I couldn’t wait to find my dream gown.

Did you have in mind the style and look you wanted from your gown? If so what was it?

No, I was completely open minded about it. I wanted to try a variety of styles.

Tell us about your bridal stylist and the ‘You Are Precious’ service you received …

Danni is such a lovely girl - it is obvious that she has so much experience, and she loves what she does. Heather also looked after me during my time with Y.A.P and she was also very knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble.

How do you think your consultation during your appointment helped in finding the perfect dress for you?

Danni was amazing - she really listened to me and got to know MY style! She pulled out a great selection of dresses for me to start with.

How did you feel when you found your precious gown & how did you know it was ‘The One’?

I just knew as soon as I put it on! It was obvious looking at my Mam’s face that she knew it was too.

How did you feel in your amazing Y.A.P gown when you tied the knot?

I felt like a princess, I really did! I completely loved, and still love, my dress. It was definitely ‘The one’ for me.

What three words would you use to describe your overall Y.A.P Bridal Journey?

Faultless. Amazing. Perfect.

Tell us about the perfect accessories …

My shoes - Jimmy Choo! With a beaded edged long veil which matched my gown perfectly.

Talk to us about the location and how YOU styled your day …

Wynyard Hall is just such a grand and beautiful venue so I kept it simple. The venue really speaks for itself.

Any colour schemes/ themes for your big day?

Ivory and Gold.

Tell us about your chosen suppliers and how they made your day perfect …

Hair and makeup - Lisa Jones –

Lisa is so talented. Not only did she do MY hair and makeup, she also did my 5 bridesmaids and my Mam’s; they looked fabulous. She made us all feel like a million dollars. Lisa had a gold hair vine made for me, and she also ordered my hair extensions; couldn’t fault her one bit. 


Photographer - Lee Scullion –

What a great guy, so entertaining and organised! He made sure everyone was involved, and I absolutely love my pictures. His photography style is very high fashion/editorial and so classy.


Videography - Top Table Films –

Jon and Adam are fantastic. I was a bit nervous about having 2 cameramen there on the day, as it’s obviously not something I’m used to, but we forgot they were even there! They are so professional and worked so well with Lee the photographer. We just love our video it’s an amazing piece of work!


Cake - Dreamworld Cakes –

Bernadette is such a lovely lady- I didn’t really know what I wanted, so I was happy for her to design our cake and I wasn’t disappointed! Not only did it look beautiful it tasted beautiful as well.


Flowers - Bels Flowers –

I don’t know a lot about flowers, all I knew is what colours I wanted, and that I like Roses. Helen was so good, she got it spot on! She knew I didn’t want to ‘over do’ it, as Wynyard is such a stunning venue on its own, all of our flowers were just stunning!


Alterations - Groom & Co –

Jeanette and her team made my dress fit like a glove! I couldn’t have been happier with it, they are great!


Entertainment- House of Sax –

These guys put on such a great show for our evening reception. What a party! They played the sax and the bongos! They had everyone up dancing; I didn’t sit down all night.


Last but not least, to the lovely girls at Y.A.P - you are all so lovely, the boutique is stunning, and it is so obvious that you all just love what you do. You make so many brides dreams come true I can’t thank you enough. Jo also dressed me on my big day, and that was so special.


Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
