WeddingWire Q&A with Diane
What is your ideal wedding style?
I love an eclectic wedding style with creative decor, surprising elements and personal touches that create a memorable and meaningful experience for the couple and guests alike.
Dream honeymoon location?
Grenada is my favourite Caribbean Island destination. Its lush rainforest, beautiful beaches and vibrant culture make it an ideal honeymoon spot for both relaxation and adventure.
What was (or would be) your first dance song?
Our first dance song was You’re the Best Thing by The Style Council.
Favourite celebrity wedding look?
Meghan Markle’s custom Givenchy wedding dress and veil, by British designer Clare Waight Keller. I love how her minimalist silk gown paired beautifully with a cathedral veil embroidered with native flora designs from each of the 53 commonwealth countries including bunchberry dogwood to represent Canada.
