Bride of Ollichon - Becca

Posted by Abby Summerville on

Hitchhiking to your wedding?  Not quite how she planned to arrive, but makes a great story for Becca and Paul's big day!

How long have you been together? 

8 years

Who proposed to who? 

Paul proposed to me in the woods where he played as a kid.

Where did you get married?

The Pump Rooms and Brockworth Tithe Barn in Cheltenham

What was your inspiration to go dress-less? 

I hadn't really considered it before seeing House of Ollichon's designs but just felt my two piece added a more sexy, modern twist whilst keeping an elegant shape.

How did you feel in your outfit? 

Really good. It fitted me like a glove but wasn't restrictive, I was definitely pulling my usual moves on the dancefloor with no problem!

Best buy?

2 metres of ivory tulle for £10! (I made my own veil)

Biggest surprise?

My Dad making me use a pogo stick as part of his speech

Did anything not go to plan?!

YES! My wedding car broke down en route to the ceremony and I hitchhiked my way there!  It made for a funny story!

Best moment?

Driving out of the pump rooms just the two of us, we both screamed!

What did you family and friends think about your outfit? 

They loved it and said it was unexpected.

Will you wear it again?

I will definitely wear the top with jeans.

Testimonial

After visiting a few bridal shops, I can honestly say House of Ollichon has got it figured out down to a tee. Hannah's welcoming and kind nature makes for a great relaxed and creative experience. Being able to have input in the design meant that the outcome felt so special and unique. Hannah genuinely wants her brides to feel their absolute best and I certainly did. I just wish we could do it all over again.
