Harrie and Touss' love of fashion and the city inspired their intimate Portsmouth Guildhall elopement. Both opting for killer suits in ivory and grey and adding pops of colour with their flowers and footwear. They celebrated becoming husband and wife by heading to their favourite coffee house and toasting with their favourite blend. Pure goals.

Just stay true to your vision and what you both really want from your day.

What Made Your Day Unique

A big traditional wedding just wasn't us, we wanted to focus on our love and vows so we opted for something a little more intimate and personal to us. We love being in the city and wanted to celebrate that, so we decided to elope and go for a coffee at our favourite cafe afterwards.

Portsmouth Guildhall

We absolutely love the simplicity of Harrie and Touss's Portsmouth Guildhall elopement. Absolutely nailing their looks in a trouser suit and pink loafers, complete with a brightly coloured bouquet. Then stopping off at their favourite coffee shop for our photos. And of course a toast with their favourite blend.

Inspiration & Styling

We both love fashion but also wanted to keep in mind that we didn't want too much fuss for our day so I opted for a suit inspired by Emily Ratajkowski's elopement and Touss went for a grey suit with pink loafers! Our photographer Leah was amazing at making us feel so comfortable and capturing our vision, she even brought props too as we both love sitting in the coffee shop reading our papers. Our florist Millie was also there on the day and delivered the most epic flowers I have ever seen! They both really understood our minimal and chic vision and 100% made our day even better than we could have imagined, it was like having friends with us.

Stripping it back allowed us to really enjoy our day.
