You didn’t think we were going to let Friday slip by without sharing an actual wedding did you? Ooohhhh no. In fact, we’ve been saving something rather a little extra special and different for you today. Diana, who is Marketing Assistant for Marc Jacobs in the Asia Pacific region, married her beau Renaud, a Wealth Risk Manager at HSBC on 10th May this year at the beautiful Manoir D’Aulnay in Saint Sebastien de Morsent, France.
Of course, it was a certain dress (Diana wore two, as you will see) that stole my heart when I received this particular submission. I was so keen to learn more about that incredible purple ombre design with flowers…
“Our wedding was very much inspired by our favorite fashion designers. We wanted a Spring wedding, an English inspired ceremony and a very elegant Gatsby/Ralph Lauren feel throughout the reception. Once this was established, we started researching dresses and flowers.”

“I wore a bespoke dress by designer Thai Nguyen - the inspiration for which came from Dior’s Fall 2012 campaign, in which actress Natalie Portman wore a similar gown. I was also inspired by my very favorite designer Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2007 floral dress.”
“We were unsure about having wedding favors until we found the right idea! Sticky supply bright coloured candies that you can personalise with small designs, words or letters. We ordered 4kg, and got personalised stickers via OrangeUmbrellaCo. on Etsy. The tricky part was transporting them from Hong Kong – 120 jars are rather heavy!”
“Our photographer Thao Vu Archey is the definition of a professional. She is so patient and knew exactly how to capture the love and atmosphere during our wedding day. Thanks to her magic, we are now able to re-live all those special moments throughout our wedding every time we view our picture. It really was a dream to be working with a photographer that knew exactly what she wanted before she even spoke about it!”
