Shauna and Joe decided on the historic and beautiful Montmartre for their September 2019 wedding. The day was held at Hotel Particulier, the smallest hotel in Paris which has only five guest rooms. It meant they could take over the entire place with their 30 guests and hold their ceremony in the beautiful courtyard garden. The best part was that the distinctive décor meant they didn’t need to add any extra decorations themselves.
Shauna wore a Suzanne Neville dress which she bought second hand from the charity Brides Do Good which she wore with Converse trainers, and a leather jacket in the evening. The bridesmaids and groomsmen were also all in black.
“The best thing about planning our wedding was imagining how it would turn out and enjoying the little moments along the way with family and friends”, Shauna said. “It was a little bit tricky navigating other people’s expectations with what we wanted to do but in the end there’s nothing we’d change about our day. We’re glad we didn’t worry about what other people thought.”
