Paris and Elijah met at her sister's wedding in 2018. "We haven't gone a day without speaking since," Paris tells us.

Elijah proposed on his 21st birthday. "After he asked me to marry him, we headed to his home to surprise our families with the news and celebrate - it was a big surprise for everybody!"

Happy couple The couple chose the elegant Orangery at the wedding venue De Vere Tortworth Court located in Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire for their grey and white-themed day. "The orangery was the main attraction to us. It was our dream venue and perfect for our intimate summer wedding," they tell us.

"We had a small wedding with close family and friends who made it very special for us." Paris adds, Walking down the aisle in this beautiful venue was surreal for me, something I'll never forget."

Shaking hands

Paris and Elijah's centrepieces were a combination of flowers that complimented her bridal bouquet. "My bouquet was filled with sweet peas which were perfect because I wanted a soft, delicate flower variety," Paris tells us.

"We got married on one of the hottest days of the year! Trying to prevent the flowers from wilting and the cake from not melting in 32-degree heat was a challenge!


Our wedding cake was a seven-tier white design iced with giant flakes and each tier was a different flavour."

The couple gifted their loved ones personalised iced biscuits as favours which everybody loved, and all of their stationary was designed by Paris's sister, Chanel. "She was a big help during the entire planning process," Paris tells us.


Paris's dress was by Milla Nova. "My mum picked it out and I instantly loved it, it was the first dress that I tried on and no other styles compared to it," she tells us.

"I accessorised it with a bow for my hair made using the material from my dress. I kept my jewellery simple with my something blue being a Tiffany & Co. silver bracelet with an aquamarine stone and my necklace featured a moonstone gemstone which was a gift from my sister for my wedding."


Elijah and his best man (his brother, Noah) wore matching light grey checked suits.

Paris's little cousin, Escada and Elijah's niece, Skyla were the couple's bridesmaids. "They wore platinum grey floor-length dresses by Dessy.

My sister was meant to be my maid-of-honour but she was pregnant during the planning process and couldn't fit into the dress chosen for her by the end of it!"

Dancing Paris and Elijah hired a DJ for the evening reception. "I made a Spotify playlist and he made sure he played every song which was fantastic!" Paris tells us.
