Presenting Charlie Brear’s #FridayBridE Bella
Friends and family from Australia to LA traveled all the way to the beautiful, blue island of Zakynthos to celebrate Bella & Ben's nuptials!
Events planner, Bella, had no problem organising a wedding to remember for Ben and their guests. The 3-day affair included a traditional Greek plate smashing ceremony on the first night, followed by a Secret Garden reception, surrounded by 100 trees, and last but not least, an unforgettable seaside ceremony.
Bella looked like a modern-day goddess in our Vienne dress which she purchased at our London studio.
Bella & Ben’s Grecian wedding affair was captured by Luke Hayden photography.

How was your experience shopping for your wedding dress? ( was it easy, was it memorable, was it fun?, was the decision tough?)
So easy... the only place I visited!
What would your advice be to other brides shopping for a wedding dress?
Find a dress that fits you now, as if you are getting married tomorrow
How did you feel after you had ordered your dress?
Happy and calm!
What shoes did you wear?
Bronze metallic strappy sandal
Did you struggle finding the right lingerie that worked with your dress, if so would you recommend anything for future brides?
My dress was backless and so I wore the cups with sticky tape that Charlie Brear recommended. They worked perfectly!
Who did your hair & make-up and how did you find them?
Where and when did you get married?
At The Peligoni Club in Zakynthos, Greece
How did you feel walking down the aisle?
So excited... and a little nervous!
Did your wedding have any quirky or unusual features?
The wedding events lasted for 3 days....we had a welcome party on the first night with Greek dancing and plate smashing. The ceremony itself was overlooking the sea with a secret garden themed reception with 100 trees and plants, all under a stretch marquee.
What was the funniest moment of the day?
Who took your wedding pictures?
Luke Hayden, he is an amazing wedding photographer
If you could do it all again, would you do anything differently?
I don't think so....maybe have some dance lessons
