How did your partner propose?
My partner proposed to me in January of 2020. We went to the beach after work on a beautiful, balmy summer’s evening. He was acting very strange the whole time – at some point I was looking at the waves and when I turned around he had a ring in his hand. We’re both very outdoorsy, so this was the perfect proposal!
What dress did you wear and where did you buy it?
I wore a gorgeous dress by Elbeth Gillis – the Charlotte gown with a removable off-the-shoulder collar. Both of these pieces are from her Grace collection.
And the accessories?
My whole wedding was very simplistic, down to the accessories. I only wore a pair of pearl chandelier earrings from Lovisa and sling-backs from Queenspark.
What did the groom wear?
He wore a suit from Country Road.
What was the highlight of your day?
We adopted a 3-legged rescue dog a couple of years ago, and she was our flower girl. We even had a little wedding dress made for her! My wedding was extremely intimate – there were only 9 people in total, this in itself was a highlight for me, because I was completely present for every moment of our big day.
What was your best buy?
Hands down my dress by Elbeth Gillis. The material is so incredibly luxe, it really made me feel like royalty!
