A Match Made in Heaven – Katie and Richard

image1Katie met her husband-to-be, Richard, in her hometown of St Neots, where they both grew up. They fell in love and have been together since June 2007.   Two years ago they decided to get married, but it wasn’t until seven months before the wedding that Katie visited Brides by Solo for the first time…

Katie says, “It was very difficult to find my dress… until I found Brides by Solo.  I knew as soon as I put my on Ronald Joyce dress it was definitely the one – it fitted perfectly!!”

“When you walk in to the shop you get the wow factor of the stunning range of dresses they have there.  Any questions I had were answered very attentively and they always got back to me straight away.  They were very interested in our special day, which was lovely.”

Asked how her wedding dress made her feel, Katie says. “I did not want to take it off ever!  It made me feel comfy, confident and very happy!  My groom was overwhelmed and grinning like a Cheshire Cat, I was so happy.”

Katie’s bridesmaids looked vibrant in their cobalt blue True Bride dresses from our new bridesmaids range.  “I had three bridesmaids – my sister Hannah was maid of honour, my best friend Kelly and my cousin Samantha. They loved their dresses, which showed off their assets!”

The future looks bright for our newlyweds, Katie and Richard, too: “We are moving to Singapore this Thursday for two years.  Such an exciting way to start married life.  Bring on the sun!”

Of Brides by Solo, Katie says, “Odette and her team were amazing.  My family and I felt so welcome every time we came into the shop.  I would most definitely recommend them to other brides without a doubt.”


Wishing Katie and Richard every success in their new life together!
