An Intimate Wedding of Just 16 Guests: Jasmine & Piers

December 14, 2011


Jasmine & Piers had only 16 guests for their intimate wedding which meant they were able to have a really relaxed and personal celebration. “We wanted it to be simple and pretty, and most of all…relaxed,” the bride told me.

“We didn’t really have a theme, but if I had to pick a work to describe it, I say Love. Everything involved in the day are things (or people) we love. Piers had his Father as his best man, which was very sweet. One of my very dear friends, and her boyfriend, from NYC spent the morning with me, helping me get prepared. During the ceremony, our friends and family sat in a circle around us in the “Lady Chapel” of All Saints West Dulwich. It was exactly what we invisioned and felt so special. We all had so much fun. I don’t think either of us have ever smiled that much in one day!! It was perfect.”


Their reception was held at Luigi’s Italian Restaurant which they decorated with items they already owned. “We had a vintage bottle collection, so it seemed natural to utilise these for the dinner table…especially since there are a mix of bottles from the US and England (Piers is from London and Jasmine from NYC). I had seen the handkerchief invites on Etsy and loved them. They seemed so thoughtful and sweet. Allie from Allie Ruth Design was very sweet to take the handkerchiefs and vintage London postcards I had collected and put together the wedding invites. Thankfully it was really easy to work with her from so far away and luckily I have some very sweet friends that helped to ship everything to me as it was ready….invites, my dress and the favours!”

Jasmine wore an Elizabeth Dye wedding dress which was bought at Lovely Bride, NYC. Her stunning shoes were from Kate Spade and her headpiece from BHLDN.

Thank you so Jasmine & Piers and their photographer Caro for sharing this beautiful day with us.
