An Intimate + Boho Secret Garden Wedding

Eleanor, who's a Business Development Manager for an online jobs board, and Jacky, a global DJ, celebrated their marriage on 14 July 2018, in London then a gorgeous reception within the hidden garden.


The couple's videographer Lee Anthony come up with a really lovely film during the day, which we're pleased to share here.

"From a young age, I always thought I wanted an enormous traditional wedding inside a church having princess wedding dresses, an enormous marquee inside a garden, and men in black tie. As soon as I had a diamond ring on my finger and we got right down to the planning all of this changed. The style was influenced by the boho angle; calm, relaxed, and easy-going. Pink was always going to become the focal color during the day along with rose gold and grey."

Eleanor decided on a breathtaking French lace gown.

"From as soon as I place the dress on I knew it had been the one. I knew it before I even used it on to become honest! I loved how different it had been from other things I had seen before, it had been incredibly flattering and comfy."

"Pink is just one of my favorite colors but I also wanted touches of green, plenty of eucalyptus, and my all-time favorite flowers – peonies. Many hours were spent head first in Pinterest trying to puzzle out the vibe I wanted! I knew I didn't want structure; I wanted it very free-flowing and relaxed. Carrie is very talented and brought my vision alive and then some!"

The bridesmaids wore softly draped dresses with silver belt detailing, that wore using their shoes and accessories. Go

"Jacky and I met at a party in Manchester approximately 5 years ago. We had several mutual friends so that is cliché as it sounds we had each other over the dance floor and partied before the sun emerged!"

"We were engaged at our favorite festival, Secret Garden Party in the 'wedding party' –everyone was decked out as wedding guests hearing 80's classics once the music stopped and also the DJ came around the mic to express someone were built with a very special question to ask…"

"Before I knew it, before how ever many countless people that have there been, Jacky was recorded on one knee asking me to marry him, and our song, Chic's 'I Want Your Love' then came bursting out! We were engaged just for under a year before we got married."

There Jacky was waiting, wearing a good suit with a contrasting waistcoat, that they wore having a fabulous floral print bow tie and pocket square, watching from The groomsmen wearing grey suits with bow ties and pocket squares.

"My favorite part during the day was finally saying I do and marrying my love before all our smiling friends and family!"

After the ceremony, there is energetic confetti throwing, with colorful petals sourced from, and everyone headed towards the lovely vintage Routemaster buses awaiting them thanks to.

Eleanor and Jacky took towards the dance floor for their first dance choice, One Love by DJ Vas.

"We first heard this song at a friend's garden party and couldn't stop singing it. It's funky, filled with soul, a little bit of disco and love."

DJs and friends play through the night, using the finishing set by Jacky himself.

Words of Wedded Wisdom

"If I have been able to predict it might be one of the hottest days of the year on our big day I would have provided fans for everybody as it had been a scorcher! I would also have made much more of an effort to consume the beautiful food we picked out… The day apart from that was perfect!"
