Ryan & Georgina in the Clo Crepe Gown

Georgina and Ryan tied the knot under the Italian sun, in Puglia Italy. Embracing the local food, wine and flowers as Puglia is famous for whitewashed farmhouses, miles of olive groves and a very relaxed culture. These two lovebirds made the most of their farmhouse filled with 50 family and friends - a summer they will never forget.

What is a Grace woman to you?

Someone who appreciates classic and simple designs.

Which Grace dress did you choose and how did you know it was ‘The One’?

My Clo Crepe dress was the one, she’s understated and beautiful. She has the same neckline of the dress I wore on my first date, I know Ryan would recognise it instantly.

Tell us about your experience when you found your dress, did you buy your wedding dress online or in one of our showrooms?

We brought the dress in the London showroom, I loved going back to try her on and walk around. She fitted my body shape really well and was perfect for a hot summer Italian day.

We married under the Italian sun, in Puglia Italy. Everything was embracing local, so local food, wine and flowers. Puglia is famous for whitewashed farmhouses, miles of olive groves and a very relaxed culture. We filled a farmhouse full of 50 family and friends and enjoy time together. A summer we will never forget.

What did you do for your first date?

He surprised me with dinner at a rural restaurant in the countryside. Candle lit and romantic, we didn’t want the date to be over so went to the movie afterwards and drove around as the conversation wouldn’t stop.

Did you DIY anything?

We opted for very neutral and relaxed design throughout the wedding and venue. Sourcing most things locally but I did pack everything in a separate suitcase like organic cheesecloths and personalised gifts for our bridal party.

The funniest moment on the day was or something that surprised you?

A very funny and magical moment for us was in the evening at our after party, That’s amore by Dean Martin came on in the courtyard and everyone danced in a circle around us. It was very sweet and magical - a moment you’ll never forget.
