The fit of your wedding dress is so important, and getting it right is a job I love doing. It’s a step by step process in the couple of months leading right up to your wedding. ✨ Ellie was always beaming at her fittings, one of my gorgeous @annabridal Brides, wearing Delphine by @Suzanneneville, captured by the super talented @samanthadavisphotography.

Friday marks our one year anniversary, and we’re heading back to @burleymanor to celebrate, I can’t wait for an evening of amazing food and wine and time to relax with my husband. But Friday also marks one month since I had some life changing surgery. Four weeks ago today, I had a risk reducing bilateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction using tissue expanders behind my pectoral muscles. Why? For those of you who don’t know much about my past, or my family; we have a genetic mutation which has a 50:50 chance of being passed on. This mutation is BRCA 1 and unfortunately this is something I have inherited. This genetic mutation meant I lost my mum to breast cancer when she was just 41, back in 2005, and my aunt passed away exactly two weeks after, - at the time I was 12. In my heart I always knew I carried this mutation and although it’s taken a few years to get to this point, I’ve finally reduced my lifetime risk of breast cancer. The mutation meant that my life time risk of breast cancer was almost inevitable, now it’s less than 5%. Granted, I’ve lost my natural breasts, my nipples and I’ve got some badass scars; but to me, that’s 100% better than the alternative outcome. What I have been through in the last month is just the first step in this BRCA Journey, as breast cancer isn’t the only increased cancer risk I face. The BRCA mutation also has an increased risk of ovarian cancer and so I know this is also something I will have to face in the future. There is also evidence in an increased risk of other types of cancer but breast and ovarian are the primary focus with BRCA mutations. Now I know I’m not usually the one to post anything too personal, but for me, this is about raising awareness of cancer, of the implications of cancer and what people might be going through when you least expect it. If you have any questions about what I’ve been through, please ask, and if you want to help, I ask that you make donations to https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-display/showROFundraiserPage?userUrl=LauraFarrance&pageUrl=1 Louise Craggs was wonderful wonderful lady who also lost her life too soon, to pancreatic cancer. 💕
