Abigail Cullen and her new husband, Andy Cullen, from Bournemouth, UK, wed on February 5, 2012 under the motif of all things Twilight Breaking Dawn: Part 1.
Abigail is the first Alfred Angelo bride to don the Twilight Bridal by Alfred Angelo (style 8400) gown for her wedding since the wedding dress hit stores world-wide on November 21, 2011. The bride purchased her gown from Alfred Angelo Premiere store, Pascali in Parkstone, Dorset, UK.
Abigail knew she wanted her “Bella” gown since planning began, “The gown is gorgeous and I knew I had to have it.” So much so, that she contacted Alfred Angelo in Florida to check on delivery of the gown in the US. Once she had found out the gown would be sold in the UK, she located Pascali’s and got her dream wedding dress, “We found out the gown had been released here (UK), and that we had a stockist down the road! Luckily, the (sample) dress was my size, and only had to be taken in a bit.”
The couple thread likenesses from the film’s wedding throughout their entire wedding, including music, the cake, flowers, and even Andy formal tails tuxedo. The bride and groom love the film franchise so much, they even changed their legal surnames to Cullen. On changing their last name, Abigail said, “Andy came out with it as a joke and it kinda stuck, so we just did it. Life’s to short to worry about such little things I say!”
Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Cullen! We wish them a life of love and adventure, and all the happiness in the world.
