Five minutes with... Laura Hedger, One Moment In Time Bridal Boutique
Being a curvy lady herself, Laura found shopping for wedding dresses to be a stressful experience. It's often the case that boutiques only carry one or two sample sizes in each dress, so it can be difficult to get a good feel for your final big-day look if they're not close to your own usual size. So, she decided to change all of that and opened her own boutique, One Moment In Time, stocking each sample gown in sizes 6 to 22, so there really is something for everyone. "I feel passionate about making sure every bride feels amazing, no matter what their size," Laura says. We chatted to her recently about everything from shopping sustainably to dealing with lack of body confidence.
