I love the outdoors and find woodland walking very peaceful. I like the feeling of being surrounded by nature and find the beauty of flowers, plants and trees inspiring. I'm also a great animal lover and it's such a delight to spot a red squirrel, rabbit or unusual bird whilst out walking.
My favourite place to escape to on a day off is
It's the most beautiful place I've visited in Northumberland, with different plants and flowers to see every season. My favourite time to visit is May and June, when the tulips, rhododendrons and azaleas are in full bloom. The Earl Grey Tea House is very decadent, with huge windows facing out onto the gardens. I always feel very relaxed after spending a day at Howick.
from the Tutu collection, was featured on the front cover of Brides magazine last spring, which was quite a high point in my career.
is my favourite design from the new Innocence collection. It's a silk satin and French lace flower with soft curled feather and sparkling strands of Swarovski crystal AB and ivory pearl. It's very elegant with hints of 1920s vintage style.
Georginafrom the Roses and Lace collection, is my best selling design. It has a detachable birdcage veil, which can be removed after the ceremony for two looks in one.
is my limited edition design from the Tutu collection.
It's a very special piece as only 20 will be made! I also wore this piece myself at the Love My Dress Summer Soiree.
I love it when my brides send me photographs from their wedding days. I have a page on my website called
In The Spotlight,
where I showcase a new bride every month. I couldn't
possibly pick my favourite as they have all been so lovely, but this is my current bride InThe Spotlight.
I love Coronation Street and never miss an episode! I actually designed and made the headpieces for Carla and Molly's weddings, which was so exciting!
Many of myBridal Tiaras have been inspired by the 1920s and 1930s and this stylish era continues to inspire me. I loved the costumes in The Artist and W.E. and I'm looking forward to seeing the The Great Gatsby.
I love reading wedding blogs and really can't choose which one I like best as I have four favourites!
Brides Up North are all fabulous.
The title soundtrack would have to be
Carnival of the Animals by Saint Saens. It's my
favourite piece of classical music and I remember it from a ballet show I was in when I was younger. It's so twinkly, I love it!
Who would play me?...That's actually really easy. I went to dancing school with Andrea Riseborough, who played Wallis Simpson W.E. She's a brilliant actress and we have known each other for over 25 years, so I'm sure she would do a good job!
I've only recently joined Pinterest, so I'm still finding my feet with it. I'm in love with Tim Walker's whimsical photography and this is my favourite image on Pinterest. 'Lily and Spiral Staircase' is just so beautiful.
