Real Wedding: A winter wedding in Bath with an Annasul Y dress
Their beautiful venue spoke for itself, so decorations were left to a minimum, meaning all eyes were on Epiphany's breathtaking fishtail wedding gown. The bridesmaids were dressed in gold sparkling dresses, to complement the glittery feel of the day.
Bath provided the perfect backdrop for their wedding, creating a beautiful selection of wedding photos.

The most romantic moment
"I would say the most romantic moment was when we met at the end of the aisle and saw each other for the last time before becoming husband and wife," shares Eppie.<br /><br />"We were told by a few people to make sure we took time to actually see each other and soak it all in, and this was the best advice we received. We spent most of the day and night dancing away together with all of our friends."
