We adore Jade and Alex's real wedding on page 49 of the current issue!
Jade and Alex met at a bar. “I was sitting down, as my feet were in agony from dancing the night before,” says Jade. “Alex came and sat next to me, and we got on like a house on fire. He actually gave me the wrong phone number by accident, but luckily we bumped into each other a few weeks later and agreed to go on a date.”
Alex popped the question during a holiday to Cape Verde. “He suggested we go for a walk one evening before the sun set,” the bride recalls. “We were sitting on the beach when he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. To celebrate, we bought a bottle of champagne and upgraded our room to a fancy suite.”
Here are some of our favourite images and a list of the suppliers who made the day possible.
