Annabelle Thorp married husband Justin Evelegh on the 9th of July.
Having both grown up spending their summers on the Isle of White the bride and groom had always known of each other but were too nervous to talk to each other. This all changed one summer when Annabelle was 18 and working in Cowes to make some extra money and Justin came in to order a drink from her – they have been together ever since.
Justin proposed as the couple holidayed in Cyprus. They spent the day driving around the National Park and and as they stopped for a picnic champagne lunch he popped the question with a gorgeous engagement ring from Duttson Rocks.
The bride looked stunning in her Caroline Castigliano Bellisima gown with the Alessia shrug. For the evening the bride removed the shrug and added the Rosabella belt for a touch of sparkle.
What did you like the most about your Caroline Castigliano designer wedding gown?
I LOVED LOVED LOVED my dress, I wish I could wear it all the time. It was so comfortable to wear, flowed beautifully and the fabric was amazing.
Best moment of the day?
We have the most amazing day I could ever imagine – but for me the ceremony was the best part.
Any tips for brides to be?
