"Nigel and I have been together for nearly 10 years, and when we decided to get married we had a bit of a problem -- we both don't like formal weddings! So we decided to have a big engagement party with a twist. An hour into the night I had a brief costume change, Nige put on a vest, and we surprised everyone by getting married then and there."
"Working with our wedding celebrant, we personalized an informal ceremony, and then continued celebrating with our family and friends with lovely food and live music. Ruche was the answer to my dress, hair and shoes questions as their collection fit the informal surprise wedding theme so well. Everyone commented on how the dress suited my style perfectly and wanted to know where I got it from. Lots were surprised I bought it online and only had to make a minor adjustment to make it fit perfectly." --Jenna
