Birmingham bride Hele Whitaker-Fenn wore Mori Lee’s Barbara wedding gown for her July 2021 wedding to Russ.

The flat bridal sandals, custom made from Etsy, were perfect for the coastal wedding setting.

The ceremony was at Old Forde House, Newton Abbot, Devon and the reception was at The Ness House, Shaldon, Devon, and capyuted by Photographer Janina Brocklesby.

Hele said: “My dress fitted my wedding theme perfectly. Being an older bride (over 40) I felt quite self-conscious but I was put at ease by the wonderful girls at Roberta’s Bridal. They listened carefully to my requirements, understood my hang ups and with quite short notice (due to covid) helped me find my perfect dress.”
