Despite having a lot to look forward to, Tayla has found wedding planning stressful. 

In July, she said she was suffering from anxiety, nose bleeds, stress rashes and exhaustion while trying to choose a venue, stick to her budget and ‘please everyone’.

‘I have always prided myself on using my social media to break down stigmas surrounding mental health and being as open and honest as possible,’ she said on Instagram at the time. 

‘This time last week I was in a really dark place. I suffer from extreme anxiety so the thought of trying to plan a wedding, letting people down with their wants and expectations, picking a venue, pleasing everyone, pleasing myself whilst not knowing what I want and trying to budget became so overwhelming,’ she added.

‘At the time my anxiety made me feel so weak. I am completely fine now and we have locked in a venue and I’m finally having fun planning a wedding which I’m so excited about.’

Tayla went on to say she felt the most pressure from herself, and it ’caused great anxiety, nose bleeds, hot flushes, stress rashes, headaches and exhaustion’. 

‘This is just a reminder that although someone’s life can seem so fun and exciting on social media, that person can still be having bad days. Be kind.’
