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!” 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.” SETTING THE SCENE 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!

Our wedding cake was a seven-tier white design iced with “We were both so relaxed on our wedding day.The atmosphere was very chilled out which was exactly what we wanted.” - Paris and Elijah REAL WEDDINGS 25
