At a time when weddings are small and togetherness is so precious, we wanted to create some chic, pared-back inspiration for couples looking to celebrate simply, in their own way.

We wanted to highlight just how special and luxurious an elopement celebration can feel even with minimal decor, particularly when the details and location are chosen in an intentional, meaningful way. For our outfits, we were inspired by playful trends à la Coco Chanel, for the modern bride wanting to be both elegant and comfortable at the same time. We chose a monochromatic palette with crisp white, black, and gold detailing - we wanted it to feel timeless, but a little bit bold too! We experimented with block colours, juxtaposing contemporary, asymmetric florals with the classic architecture of an early 18th-century country mansion in the glorious English countryside.

Our focus was on the moments and on the emotions – no crowds, no frills, just love.
