“Being a gay wedding we weren’t going to have an amazing gown reveal like at other big weddings,” husband Deri told Wales Online. “I figured every wedding needs a wedding dress – so why not 10? The girls all have huge personalities and so there was terrible competition, dress disasters and fall outs but on the day they all looked fab.”

The couple met through their best “man,” Sadie, in 2013, and got engaged this January.
