24 Hours in Manchester: Where to Stay & What to Eat

Since getting engaged, we’ve found ourselves spending our free moments driving up and down the motorway scouting venues, meeting vendors and everything in between.

I confess, I’ve been slacking when it comes to skincare lately.

However, there’s one thing he’s managed to escape – for obvious reasons – and that’s the dress shopping. After months of searching for ‘the one’, I recently had my real-life fairytale moment and said yes to the dress. And although David Emanuel wasn’t part of this experience (boo), I’ve had the pleasure of stepping foot into some of the most beautiful bridal boutiques. So with this in mind, I wanted to share a few of my favourites with you.
