Tell us about your wedding vibe:
We got married at Jakes in Treasure Beach, Jamaica. I've grown up visiting this special place, and we really wanted to embody the laid back, bohemian nature, but also bring a bit of New York style, which ended up being the perfect mix.
Any special traditions of touches: At the end of the ceremony we all walked down to the water and set off paper lanterns into the sky. This is a Jakes tradition and was the perfect send off. We really wanted our guests to relax and embrace the Jamaican way of life, so we included a joint in the welcome bags with personalised matches and a note that said "don't worry about a thing, cause everything little thing is gonna be alright.
Tell us about your bespoke SZ Napkins:
We wanted something that would fit in with the lush surroundings and colourful background of the setting, but also feel like a natural part of the bohemian vibe at Jakes. Out table setting and flowers were primarily white and green, so the touch of blue and the amazing block print were the perfect pop.
