Inspiration & Styling
Thomas and I didn’t have a traditional wedding so I thought my bridal look shouldn’t be too traditional either. I didn’t want something too extreme that, looking back on it, I might’ve regretted wearing but I did want just a pop of colour and something unique I could wear. I got that with my headpiece and the bouquet. Thomas’ look was very special. Given that we eloped (which meant our parents weren’t there with us) Thomas wanted to feel them close to him nonetheless. He decided to wear the suit jacket his dad wore on his wedding day.
Boho ElopementAs soon as Thomas proposed to Jannie, they instantly knew they wanted an elopement wedding. They wanted to say their vows somewhere understated and special to them, so decided to go back to Northamptonshire to say their nuptials. They started the day off getting ready together at Thomas’ family home, then slowly strolled to Castle Ashby’s Orangery where they exchanged their promises and declarations. The intimate setting is absolutely incredible and looks nothing short of spectacular. And most surprising of all, all of this fabulousness was done for under 10K!
Dried Flower Bouquet
Having lived in Spain for quite some time, I’ve gotten to know quite a few Spanish suppliers. For my bridal bouquet, I headed straight to El Jardín del Cabo. I showed Teresa and Claudia some photos of the dress, the shoes and the headpiece and they came up with the best flower combination. Oh, most importantly, it was made with dried and preserved flowers (so I could take it with me on the plane on our way to the UK), which means I get to keep it forever!
Just be yourselves and do the wedding the way you really feel like doing it, because it’s a once in a lifetime moment and other people shouldn’t decide for you.
