Bride of Ollichon - Gemma

Posted by Abby Summerville on

Gemma | Classic

How long have you been together?

We have been together for 4.5 years 


Who proposed to who?

I proposed to Trevor.


Where did you get married?

We got married at Montpellier Wine Estate in Tulbagh near Cape Town, South Africa


What was your inspiration to go dress-less?

I never really wear dresses; I mostly wear trousers. I was looking for a trouser suit and discovered a lovely two-piece (top and skirt).

How did you feel in your outfit?

I felt really comfortable, like it was my skin


Best buy? 

My House of Ollichon outfit, of course!


Biggest surprise?

A small piece of jewellery gifted to me by Trevor's aunts that I wore on the day


Did anything not go to plan?!

It rained so we had to move the event inside, into the cellar. But it was a great atmosphere, and even more intimate.

Best moment?

The ceremony was special because it involved contributions from friends and family. I think almost everyone was in tears.


What did your family and friends and other half think about your outfit?

They loved it, particular the hands in the pockets on the day!


Will you wear it again?

Yes, I will wear the pieces separately, probably top with jeans. And perhaps dye the skirt so I can wear it as party dress.


Testimonial 

Hannah is wonderfully imaginative. House of Ollichon's informal yet creative approach really worked for us.
