Just two weeks ago she got married and the photos are TO DIE FOR!! 

Callie decided to pass on her happiness and message of body acceptance to her followers with an inspiring Instagram post focused on her GORGEOUS wedding gown...

She said: "I never dreamed I would wear a dress like this, I used to think that I would never get married until I was thin. There were even times I doubted myself thinking I would be too self conscious to wear it."

 

When I put on my wedding dress I knew it was the one. The gentle sparkle of the dress with the lace detail The champagne colour that perfectly complemented my olive skin, the way it fell over my hips and followed the curves of my figure. It was just magical. I never dreamed I would wear a dress like this, I used to think that I would never get married until I was thin. There were even times I doubted myself thinking I would be too self conscious to wear it. But As you grow older and you surround yourself with the right people, you begin to realise that what you look like doesn't really matter to those that love you. Dan has loved me at all different sizes and on the day of the wedding when I walked into the room he turned and teared as I walked towards him, he looked at me like I was magic. So I would like to say this one thing to brides to be everywhere, plus size or not. Do not feel you have to change yourself or your size to be happy on your wedding day, your partner loves you for who you are, not just what you look like. You are deserving of happiness no matter what your size, and you will still be the most beautiful person in the room next to your love because you will be glowing with the love you have for each other. The happy ending is for everyone so please, please let yourself have it. Hair: @smuk_london MUA: @sharlottejacks Photo by @kirstymackenziephotography
