Mellissa Hurrell, 27, married Paul 'PJ' O'Driscoll, 28, at Corpus Christi, Romford, followed by a reception at The White Horse Pub, Brentwood on 26th August, 2017.
I tried on so many different styles and I took my two maids-of-honour with me to help. When I tried on the Elodie design by Willowby at Watters, I had the biggest smile on my face – I truly felt like a princess. I didn't feel the dress needed to be accessorised much as it had detailing on the bodice. My veil was plain with some beading on the clasp to complement my dress and PJ commissioned a sapphire necklace and matching earrings for my something blue.
We choose Corpus Christi as our ceremony venue as PJ is Catholic, it's local to us, has a long altar and is just lovely and airy.
We didn't have a traditional cake and instead opted for cake pops in two different hues – which were laid out to spell 'love.'
Our rustic centrepieces comprised of vases of flowers and tea lights set on a wooden slice.
We had a variety of spreads for our favours, all from the Tiptree Jam Factory. These were displayed in a basket, which allowed people to help themselves.
We hired singer Jamie Mathias who wrote and performed our first dance song – he was amazing and our guests loved him.
