With the date set and the venues locked down, the next step was finding the perfect photographer to preserve their precious memories. Born and bred island photographer Gypsy Westwood came highly recommended by friends living on the island and their wedding planner alike, and the decision was made. Then, the countdown to the big day was on…
While Tom – looking dapper in a Burberry suit – patiently waited at the altar for his bride-to-be, Chloe was being beautified by a make-up artist she’d flown in for the occasion from Dubai: Hannah Brooke Artistry. Once her floor-skimming Adam Shaw gown and Valentino shoes were on, a vintage Rolls Royce ferried her to the church where she walked down the aisle with not a dry eye in the house.
Dress code for guests was black tie and formal, setting a striking scene as the bride and groom strode into the venue as man and wife. After a selection of canapés washed down with cava sangria – the bride’s personal favourite cocktail – guests were seated for dinner and speeches as the dramatic sunset began before their eyes. Catering came courtesy of the expert Cotton Beach Club chefs, a Mediterranean fusion menu, topped off with the groom’s favourite dessert – apple pie.
After the formalities, the party truly began and guests hit the dance floor to the sounds of a resident DJ with special guest Anastasia McQueen on saxophone. Tucked away in the restaurant’s interior was the hidden treasure – a grown-up’s fancy dress chest – and needless to say, much fun was had by all and it proved to be the perfect end to a phenomenal day.
