Jess & Toby

Bride-to-be Jess turned to RYW to help oversee the final month of planning before her wedding to Toby. With nine vendors and a full time job to juggle, the couple were relieved to be able to hand over the final preparations to us, safe in the knowledge that everything would be checked and organised with the same attention to detail. "We didn’t have the budget for a full wedding planner," explained Jess, "but having the help and guidance in the final weeks was worth every penny.”

Wedding theme/inspiration:

‘Simplicity, love, family and friends’ was the ethos behind this eco-friendly wedding, where as much as possible was DIY, thrifted and borrowed, for a truly personal ceremony and reception.

Favourite wedding memory:

Jess: "The day felt like it went so quickly, so I loved sneaking away for our sunset photos after the ceremony. It gave us both the chance to take a deep breath and to appreciate the beautiful day we had created together. It felt really good to just take a few moments to soak it all in with Toby."

Toby: "I had an almost slow motion moment when it all hit me during the first dance. I was just looking around at all our close friends, smiling, laughing and dancing – in Dubai, under the stars – thinking: Wow! My wife and I are so lucky to have all this! And to have had the expert help to make our dreams come true was just incredible."
