The best thing about working with Gwen is that she always has a smile on her face. Her wedding morning was not without hiccups but she dealt with everything calmly and cheerfully, determined to have fun on her wedding day. She got married at the stunning John Rylands Library on Deansgate in Manchester, where she works as a photographer and had her reception at Islington Mill in Salford.

At Gwen’s trial she actually decided on a completely different hairstyle – a backcombed, 60s look. But on the day she decided she felt most comfortable with it down in soft natural waves and I think it looks lovely. For her makeup, I gave Gwen Mad-Men style liquid eyeliner flicks and bright red lips.
