Priya and Josh are giving us all the fairytale vibes at their Leeds castle wedding. Complete with Galia Lahav wedding dress, butterfly winged Sophia Webster shoes and bright pink flowers. Behind the lens capturing all the magic was, Recommended supplier, Fiona Kelly Photography, who takes Priya and Josh on a tour of the grounds and encourages lots of twirling. You have to when you're a princess, right?!

We got to spend 24 hours as a real king and queen! Treated like royalty from the moment we pulled up to the long beautiful drive. We had the loveliest castle in the world and put it to good use including staying the night in the state bedrooms with breakfast back where we said "I do" along with our loved ones. Even though it is a tourist spot, we feel it is forever ours.

We loved having bright coloured flowers and the bridesmaids in hot pink saris to mix up the traditions. We wanted everyone to be carefree and catered for and feel like we could let our hair down and enjoy the day all being together. Things like having an awesome band, an extra round of drinks and a babysitter was one way of us saying thank you to our guests for looking after us all these years and making it all the way for our special day.


That moment when we first caught eyes with each other will never leave either of us. That gut-wrenching how lucky are we moment! I hope everyone gets that. But, aside from the obvious, stepping outside the castle before the groom's speech when all the visitors left. We had some photos of us just being perfectly relaxed and goofing around with only each other and what felt like our beautiful castle.

Spinning around in my Galia Lahav wedding dress may have been for the camera, but I think it was my princess moment!

Stretching your budget or overspending will not fetch you joy. On the day and looking back, the love and smiles will fill you with warmth. Not that pair of shoes that was out of budget. Plan to make sure you feel relaxed and can enjoy that moment before it escapes! For us, hiring babysitters made our day so carefree.

The detail on Priya's Galia Lahav wedding dress is truly exquisite. It's no wonder she felt like a Princess for the day. Gulia and Diego also opted for fairytale vibes in Tuscany, made complete by having their daughter by their side just like Priya and Josh.
