Alana Hebenton and her fiancé have been planning their big day in Portsmouth for a year-and-a-half, before COVID-19 hit and cast a shadow over their dream wedding. Here she shares her journey and tips on how to keep calm and marry on!
Alana and Stuart got engaged in November 2018 and are due to tie the knot at Portsmouth Cathedral followed by a reception at The Queens Hotel, Southsea on 18th July, 2020. Everything's planned, from the loose nautical theme with gold and navy colours, to the four bridesmaids, bridesman and pageboy. "We always knew we wanted to get married in Portsmouth and having the ceremony in such an iconic building was our dream come true," says Alana. Then the global pandemic struck and the country went into lockdown, threatening their dream wedding.
"About a month ago, when the virus updates began to increase on the news and more and more events started to get cancelled, my thoughts turned to the wedding and I started to panic," she admits. "The dream wedding that I'd spent the last 18 months (and 31 years) planning could potentially not be happening.Thankfully, after a few conversations with Stuart I felt a lot better as we came up with a plan to get through this crazy situation together. "
