Fire dancers flown in from Austria, a firework farewell at the rehearsal dinner, and a glamorous sequin reception dress–these are just a few things that Olivia and Bart included in their extravagant Guernsey Channel Island wedding. Not to mention the fact that it was held in the bride’s family’s backyard.
Olivia wowed guests in her princess-like high neck J’aton Couture gown paired with a Swarovski tiara, while Bart looked dashing in his Micheal&Giso grey plaid suit. The fashion matched the all-white decor, which included white roses galore arranged by Simply Bespoke and elegant white linens. One look at the photos captured beautifully by Igor Demba, and you’d think we’d been transported to a modern-day fairytale. Keep scrolling through to be enchanted by these magical nuptials.
Olivia and Bart
Unexpected Bridal Fashion
My wedding dress was J’aton– I wanted everyone to think it was unexpected. I think people assumed I would be in head-to-toe sparkles, but I kept it classy. It was the best dress in the world, and it was the first I tried on. My hair was in an ultra-glam top knot to compliment the high neck of my dress. It’s also Bart’s favorite hairstyle on me. I had a Swarovski tiara shipped in from New York and finished the look with super tall Jimmy Choos for the ceremony and Louboutins for the night.
Elegant Vibes At The Guernsey Channel Island Wedding
The overall vibe of the wedding was very romantic, elegant, and magical. It was set at my family home in the Channel Islands. The ceremony took place in a courtyard, and the party was in a huge marquee on the grounds. We didn’t have a DJ; we had a 12 man band. The whole thing was “old school’ glamour vibes.
A Classic Wedding Color Palette
We didn’t ‘fight the white.’ We went all-in on the white–white flowers, white aisle, white everything. We finished it off with brushed antique gold and lots of deep green plants.
