Hannah and Kieran met through friends of friends. “We were young, so we never really went out on ‘dates’,” say Hannah. “Kieran proposed on Christmas Day when we were at home. It was so magical, I couldn't believe it.”

Our lucky competition winner!

“I heard about wed2b’s 'Win a Wedding Dress' competition after buying my dress there,” says Hannah.

“After that, I entered every week for nearly six months to see if I would be lucky enough to get my money back.”

“I was so shocked when I heard I’d won,” says Hannah. “It made me so happy, I couldn't believe it! I initially thought it was a scam, because I never win stuff, but when I realised it was legitimate I was so happy I had to tell everyone!"

"I asked for my money back and put it towards our honeymoon.”

Shopping for the dress

“I discovered wed2b online and my mom advised me to go to the Hinckley store,” says Hannah. “I had a very pleasant experience there. The lady who served me so was kind and friendly. She wasn't pushy at all and made me feel so at ease. I was actually dreading my wedding dress shopping experience, because it isn't me at all. But I really enjoyed myself and the lady really settled my nerves.”

Hannah chose the Lennox ballgown in blush. "It wasn't the style I thought I would like but I loved it so much,” she says. “It made me feel like a princess."

"I feel, even now, the dress is so magical! "

"My favourite part was the top and back of the dress. The detail in it was just beautiful. I also added an Angel veil to complete the look” (For similar styles try Iana, Coreena or Monikh)

A 17th century farmhouse venue

The couple found their wedding venue, Donington Park Farmhouse, online. “Kieran found our rustic venue and it reminded me of my late grandad. It was such a beautiful setting. We booked it for 16th May 2022.”

The big day

“The weather was lovely and I got ready with my bridesmaids and mom,” says Hannah. “My dad walked me down the aisle. Later, for the reception, we had a fairy theme and lavender was the main colour. We also did most of the decor ourselves.”

The best bits…

“It’s hard to pick the most memorable moments, as the whole day was just beautiful and magical,” says Hannah. “I loved every moment of it.”

My top tips…

“Try not to stress, what will be will be,” says Hannah. “It goes so quickly, so enjoy every second and don't get caught up on little things in the run up.”
