A super relaxed wedding in Jersey for this travel-loving couple, with a globe guest book and a map seating chart! Wanting the feel of an intimate elopement, this couple chose to tie the knot in a remote coastal location in Jersey, made even more special by the fact it was the grooms childhood home! Wanting to make sure the decor was recycled and sustainable, so focused on making a lot of the pieces themselves, such as the ceremony arch, the place names and growing their own flowers whilst also making hundreds out of paper! There was also a very special guest, their beloved pet dog, who had a key role in the ceremony as the ring bearer!


"Both the ceremony and celebrations were held at the grooms childhood home and most of the decorations, games and features were made by the bride and groom, family and friends. The civil ceremony was a truly personal reflection of our beliefs and commitment to each other." - Ana & Sam

Globe Guest Book

The adventurous couple wanted to bring their love of traveling to the wedding, so the globe guest book was a great alternative to the traditional kind, along with the map seating chart that pinned their favourite destinations. The rustic vibe was carried through into the bride and grooms outfits, the bride chose a low back lace sleeved wedding dress finished with a flower crown, while the groom kept it simple with a brown waistcoat and white shirt.


"A relaxed day without any formality with our close family and friends. We were inspired by recycling anything and everything and creating as much as we could ourselves, from the arch to place name holders, growing real flowers to making a thousand out of paper." - Ana & Sam
