Grace + Tom

How did you meet?

We went to school together for years, but it wasn’t until after school that we really got to know each other. He tried his hardest to bag a date for about a year, until I eventually gave in.

When did you know they were the one? 

From date one. I messaged my friend after and told her I will be marrying him.

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

He’s such a gentleman, kind and loving.

Who proposed and how?

We were in Greece on holiday when Tom hired us a private yacht to go around the islands, caves and swimming with turtles. We got to one place where we had to swim through a cave to get to a private beach. Tom had the ring tied up in his swim shorts, got down on one knee. It was perfect and so picturesque.

Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?

My first dress I saw online and just loved. I wanted some simple, but classically English feeling. Lottie was just perfect and I loved her from first sight. I actually had another dress for my second dress but Elsie flowy was released a week before my wedding and I just fell in love with her instantly. I just knew I had to wear her. I contacted the London boutique to see if they had her (which was a low chance seeing as she had only been released a day before, and I needed it in my size exactly). I was lucky that they had one dress in my size and they shipped it next day to me. I got her 2/3 days before my wedding day and she fit like a glove!!!

What was the best moment for you at your wedding? 

Just getting married. We had to change so many plans and dates due to Covid. We originally had a 4 day wedding planned in France but we ended up getting married in the Cotswolds with 40 people. We could have gotten married anywhere as in the end we just couldn’t wait to get married.

What were your favourite details?

I loved how classically English the wedding was. So many flowers!! I loved our personalised Mr and Mrs Cocktails, and our nod to our not-to-be French wedding with our champagne tower.

What advice would you tell other brides?

Enjoy it!!!! I wish I could go back to planning it all and reliving the day. Delay the celebrations… more than one day is needed for a wedding, I wanted more! Also, never be afraid to make sure your suppliers know what you want, I was probably too chilled.
