Amber is our very own resident newlywed and fortunately for us, she tells us all about it too in her weekly column. But now we get to dig a little deeper and find out which superhero she wanted to be, where she’s going on holiday and what she thinks of a wedding without wine.
Name: Amber McNaught

Sexy singleton, smug married or significant other? Smug married since March 31st this year.
Most embarrassing wedding moment? I’ve actually been quite lucky, and have so far managed to avoid embarrassing wedding moments. I’m sure this will change soon, though!
Your ultimate wedding dress/ designer? I wore a Vera Wang dress to my wedding, and wouldn’t have changed it!
Idea of wedding hell? Bad food, bad music and no wine to make it all better.
Dream celebby husband? Well, my husband might read this, so I’m going to have to say it’s him, aren’t I?
And now enough about weddings, tell us a bit about you!
What’s your favourite movie? Office Space
Which book did you read last? ‘The Girls’ by Lori Lansens. Absolutely fantastic.
Best ever vacation? Florida – I’ve been more times than I care to remember and will probably be there again by the time you read this. It’s the happiest place in the world, you know.
Childhood ambition? Technically, it was to be Wonder Woman, but once I got over that, I wanted to be a writer, which I am!
What’s for tea tonight? Probably salad – I’m saving some space for the all-you-can-eat buffets I’ll be hitting on my holiday
If I saw you in the pub, what’s your tipple? If you’re buying, I’ll have champagne. If it’s on me, I’ll stick to wine – dry and white. (I actually prefer red, but it always stains my teeth. Which is nice.)
