"Even going in to wedding shops, I wouldn't have dreamed about trying the dresses on."
Sharon, from Normacot, says that before doing course, based at Hanley YMCA, she was often depressed and lacking in self-confidence.
She said: "It was terrible. I would get a rash from being nervous.
"I'm somebody now, I think a lot of myself now, it's me first and if you feel good in yourself it reflects on other people a lot.
"I definitely needed to do the course.
"I always used to be the one asking for help, now people come to me."
