Bride of Ollichon - Saskia

Posted by Abby Summerville on

Saskia | Classic in the Linford jumpsuit with a flower crown adding a boho vibe!

How long have you been together?

5 years

Who proposed to who? 

We both proposed to each other at the same time! On our 4 year anniversary away in Italy we clearly both had the same bright idea – it left us in hysterics and kind of proved that it was meant to be.

What was your inspiration to go dress-less? 

I’m not a big dress girl and I wanted to be the best version of myself on my wedding day, not pretending to be a fairy princess. I’m also quite short and felt like wearing a jumpsuit would be the most elegant I could look and still be able to dance!

How did you feel in your outfit? 

I was so comfortable and felt completely glamorous in it.

Best buy? 

Probably our flowers from Worm London – my flower crown was my absolute favourite .

Biggest surprise? 

A video all our friends made us for us to watch in the car on the way to the reception of everyone singing along to a song about us!

Did anything not go to plan?! 

Almost everything. Our venue had to be changed a few weeks before, we had a lot of last minute cancellations, but it was all completely perfect nonetheless.

Best moment? 

Singing ‘I’m A Believer’ by The Monkees all together at The Asylum in lieu of a more traditional hymn.

What did your wife, family and friends think of your jumpsuit? 

Everyone loved it, and thought it was very ‘me’.

Will you wear it again? 

I already did! The morning after because we lost the keys to our Airbnb on the night of the wedding so had to get a last minute hotel that evening at 2am! So bleary eyed, in yesterday’s make up and a few rogue flowers in our hair, me and my wife basically did the walk of shame through Shoreditch the next day hahaha!!

Testimonial

The best service and most gorgeous fitting piece – it’ll be the favourite thing I’ve ever worn for the rest of my life.
