Bride of Ollichon - Melissa

Posted by Abby Summerville on

With a baby on the way, it was important for Melissa to feel comfortable and not restricted by her wedding outfit, we happily worked around her beautiful bump to achieve this!

How long have you been together?

1 year and 3 months

Who proposed to who?

Kwesi proposed in Barcelona last May

Where did you get married?

Old Marylebone Town Hall and the Union Club in Soho

What was your inspiration to go dress-less?

I wanted something classic and easy to wear that I could hopefully use again


How did you hear about House of Ollichon?

Searching 'modern wedding' online

How did you feel in your outfit?

Very comfortable, glamorous and happy

Best buy? 

Definitely the skirt, lovely to wear!

Biggest surprise?

Everything ran smoothly! Taking impromptu photos in Mayfair after the ceremony was fun though.

Did anything not go to plan?!

Nothing important :)

Best moment?

The first dance

What did your husband, family and friends think about your outfit?

It was perfect!

Will you wear it again?

I hope so!


Testimonial
