CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR WEDDING! IT LOOKED SO BEAUTIFUL - CAN YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT THE DAY?
We started the day at Lotusland - a stunning botanic garden in California that I’ve been wanting to visit for years. We explored the garden and took photos with our brilliant photographer, Kelly Brown, then we made our way to the Santa Barbara Courthouse where we tied the knot! After the ceremony we had a picnic with champagne and our mini wedding cake, then we headed to a nature preserve to watch the sunset on the cliffs overlooking the ocean. To end the day we headed back to our hotel and had a delicious candlelit dinner on the hotel restaurant’s terrace. It was a lovely day!
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO WEAR NEEDLE & THREAD?
I’ve been a big fan for years now, I treasure all my Needle & Thread gowns. Vintage-inspired prints and silhouettes are my favourite, and Needle & Thread does them so beautifully. When I saw the Francine Gown I instantly knew it was the one. It’s the only dress I tried on!
HOW DID THE DRESS MAKE YOU FEEL?
I felt like a princess! It’s such a romantic gown - the floral embroidery, lace trims, tulle and flutter sleeves. I adore everything about it.
WHAT WOULD BE YOUR ADVICE FOR OTHER COUPLES PLANNING AN ELOPEMENT STYLE WEDDING?
Make the day exactly how you want it to be. If you enjoy travelling, make a trip out of it! Do the things you love to do as a couple, and don’t feel like just because you’re eloping you can’t have aspects of a traditional wedding (if that’s your style!). Get your hair and makeup done, hire a photographer, carry a bouquet, eat wedding cake - whatever makes you happy, go for it. It’s your day!
