Cressida + Ross

How did you meet?

We met online and we did three years long distance whilst I was teaching in Dubai and Ross was at home in the UK – when you know you know!

When did you know they were the one?

Straight away!

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

Ross is the most caring, kind and funny friend I have!

Who proposed and how? 

He proposed but I was desperate to do it myself! He beat me to it! He proposed at sunset in The Maldives – it was perfect!

Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?

I fell in love with MWL in Dubai and then relocated and moved back home to the UK. I knew I wanted a MWL and I originally loved the Harlie but I took my mum and sister to Coco and Kate in Warwickshire which is the gorgeous boutique with the most gorgeous girls abs they found THE DRESS. I tried on the Harlie I still loved it but then my twin sister saw the Riley with Tulle skirt and I didn’t know at first but then….. oh my gosh the moment still makes me cry now! I tried it on and I knew! It was made for me!

I love everything about it and we didn’t go for the white either so the colour was special, unique abs nothing like I’ve seen before! It was the ONE!

There is hardly any pictures online of the Riley with Tulle shirt!

I would love for you to share these pictures with other brides to be as this dress is sooo sooo stunning! I can’t thank MWL enough – you have made my dress dreams come true!

I am going to wear my dress every wedding anniversary and I can’t wait for that day already!
Thank you from one very happy bride!

What was the best moment for you at the wedding?

Seeing my husband for the first time!

Our French dream wedding was cancelled five days before which was extremely difficult so we had a plan B wedding in our hometown with our friends and family there. It was the most perfect plan B! Love always win!

Love is never cancelled!!!

What were your favourite details?

Our plan B wedding venue was where we went on our first date – if that is not fate – what is?

What advice would you tell other brides?

Be happy!

Make lots of lists and share with everyone so you can share the stress and worries they will half and disappear!

Plan everything and practice the first dance!

Any standout vendors?

Coco and Kate where I bought my mwl dress was incredible! So thoughtful to every little detail and supportive when our French dream was taken away from us.
