I wanted the day to reflect my own style – I love pastels and all things twinkly. Syon Park has a gorgeous glass dome that allows you to see the stars which was magical and fitted our theme.
Cameron proposed with a tiara worn in Downton Abbey (I’m a friend of the designer, Andrew Prince). I’m a magazine jewellery editor, so Cameron knew this was the perfect way to ask. I had to give it back (unfortunately!) but Andrew made me a bespoke tiara, with pale blue stones, to complement my dress.
It felt like I looked at 1,000 different shades of blue for my wedding gown before finding the right colour. Sylvia Davies Couture and I designed the gown together; she also made my Communion dress 20 years ago so Sylvia was the obvious choice to design my big-day dress.
Dessert was really important to us. Cameron is a brilliant cook, and in our first few weeks together made me an amazing cheesecake. It seemed right to have a cheesecake as part of dinner.
My top tip: Make sure you’re certain about which elements you want your photographer to capture. I didn’t have mine present while I was getting ready and in hindsight I wish I had.
