Tell us about the proposal Ollie proposed in autumn of 2016 during sunset on the sweetest little Airbnb balcony, surrounded by mountains at Lake Wanka, New Zealand.
Describe your wedding style Intimate, romantic, classic, old worldly wedding. The colours were moody, plum, deep colours.
Describe the moment you found your wedding gown After a nightmare morning of tulle, super tight strapless dresses and a tonne of beadwork, I decided to call it a day. My maid-of-honour and best friend talked me into just one last one that she’d made an appointment for the week before. Suzanne Harward was like a breath of fresh air. A simple, classic and beautiful showroom, it was the exact opposite of the morning I’d had and exactly what I’d been looking for. Carly (stylist at Suzanne Harward) put the top of one dress and the bottom of another together and I instantly fell in love.
What was a particularly memorable moment of the wedding day The venue was absolutely incredible. Churchill had so much character and charm. Having a relatively small number of guests (80 people) it added to the intimate feel of the day for us. Having the ceremony and then reception in the same venue, made time slow down a little and we could relax and fully enjoy our moment.
Overall Choose a guest list that makes both of your hearts happy. Don’t invite out of obligation or because you think you should. I know it’s easier said than done, but we put a lot of time and consideration into who we invited and it paid off in absolute bucket loads of love and fun. When you choose carefully, you’re creating an environment for your day that then in turn gives way to a ceremony and reception of fun, love and good vibes.
