My formal day went very smoothly. Perfect weather on the day (not too hot and no afternoon storms).  I started at lunchtime with hair and make up and I was fully dressed and ready by 3pm.

I was lucky enough to have pre-formal photos with my school friends at a gorgeous house which  was the perfect backdrop.
