Ellie & George

With the stunning backdrop of Holkham Hall, Ellie and George’s beautiful wedding was pure perfection. Featuring 2 ring bearer pups and an actual sword to cut the cake, their day was a wonderful fusion of grandeur and fantastic fun.

How did you two meet?
We met in our local pub in Fulham. George walked in with our black pug, Boko. The rest is history!

What's your favourite thing to do together?
Going for a long walk with our two pugs, Nola and Boko (who incidentally were the ring bearers at our wedding!) usually finished off with a pub lunch by an open fire!

What was the best thing about the wedding?
Having everyone we adore all in the same place together was really very special. But everything! From start to finish, it was the best day ever and we are so grateful to Holkham Hall and all of our wonderful suppliers for everything.

What tip would you give other couples planning their wedding?
Don’t get stressed and go with the flow a bit. There will be minor hiccups along the way but it will all come together and be the best day ever!

Tell us all about your honeymoon! Where did you go and what did you love about it?
We have just got back from 2 fabulous weeks in Bali! We hopped around from the rainforest of Ubud, to island life on Lombok and the Gilli islands, to the bustle of Seminyak. It's somewhere we have always wanted to go and it gave us the perfect balance between complete relaxation and being able to soak up the culture of wonderful Indonesia.

What has surprised you most about being married?
That not a huge amount has changed! Apart from an unbreakable bond that we feel as a couple...

One thing we did before we got married and I'm glad we still do now is…
Have a good giggle and never take things too seriously!

Were you always planning to have a gift list?
Yes absolutely. And the variety of Prezola really appealed to us.

What's your favourite gift list feature on Prezola?
Being able to like something and have ‘favourites’ and then confirm.

What are your favourite brands
There are many but Graham & Green are particular favourites. We could have had our whole list from there!

What item were you most excited to get on your gift list?
We’re quite fond of our little octopus candle stick holder from Graham & Green.

Tell us all about your Prezola delivery day?
It was brilliant, like Christmas had come early! We knew we were getting a BBQ so the first thing we did, was assemble that, light it up, open a bottle of bubbles and enjoy unwrapping everything! The attention to detail that Prezola made when preparing the gifts was amazing.

How would you describe your interior style?
Shabby Chic.

Is there a gift you wish you had added to your gift list but didn't?
A big mirror.

Ellie and George.
