If you have ever envisioned the picture perfect Mediterranean wedding - this is it! 
We eagerly followed Jessika to the most breath-taking destination - Milos (The best Greek island EVER) and got a glimpse of her intimate but very special wedding.
We asked Jessika a few questions to get behind the scenes commentary of what unfolded to the lead up and wedding day.

Tell us a little about yourselves, what you do, what you love, what is unique about you and your relationship?

I am Jessika Gadoury, 29 years old canadian now living in London with my husband, Olivier, and cat Charlie. My biggest passions in life are travel and food which is one of the base of Olivier’s and I relationship. We met 17 years ago at the beginning of High School and became friends without much more to it for the next five years. Then in our senior year we did a trip with school to Europe and we connected. We have been dating for 12 years now. Since then we have lived in China, Canada, France and now the UK and have visited over 25 countries together. Our passion for traveling brought us together and keeps our relationship fun.

Tell us about your special day, was there a specific theme or style? Tell us a little about the setting, the styling and some of your favourite details

The wedding took place in Milos, Greece at a cute hotel called Psaravolada. The setting was absolutely beautiful on the edge of a cliff by the sea. We didn’t have a specific theme in mind in was mainly around the colour scheme which was dusty blue, white and navy. It was important for me to have a wedding that was elegant and minimal


Tell us about your main outfits of the wedding day

Getting ready : I was wearing a white Meeka KARA robe while my best friend and the mothers were wearing the same robe but with blue flowers one it that complimented the colour scheme of the day super well.

Ceremony: My ceremony dress is actually off the rack as the dress I was suppose to wear didn’t fit me anymore after alterations. So I got a Jenny Yoo dress from Selfridges and it fitted like a glove. It is very sleek, elegant and minimal which I love. It is definitely a timeless piece. My veil is bespoke by Rebecca Anne Designs. It is written ‘Je t’aime mon amour’ on it which is a sentence Olivier and I always say to each other with floral details. The shoes are from Jonh Lewis from a brand called Paradox. I am also wearing Mejuri earrings.

Evening look: For the evening I change into a Daily Sleeper feather dress to be able to move around a bit more. I also swapped my veil for another Rebecca Anne Design creation this time written ‘Home is where you are. St-Eustache Xi’an Quebec Paris London & more to come’ which are all the cities we have lived in together. I matched this dressed with a handmade bag by Jacquelement and some cute white sandals

What items or services did you think were a waste of money? VS what are you so glad you splurged on?

Item wise, I personally didn’t want to spend loads on shoes as I knew they would get ruined and I didn’t want to have to worry about them. I am really happy I did that because after the beach photo shoot they were really not white anymore. The things I am mostly happy I spend on are the more unique items from smaller brand such as my veils, my evening purse and the robes to get ready. I think it made a huge different to make the wedding more elevated and I am happy to have supported smaller businesses along the way.

Service wise, our wedding planner was such a great investment. They really helped us. Additionally, I want to give a special shoutout to our photographer and videographers that made everyone feel so comfortable

Any advice you would like to give to future brides?

I would say do the wedding you want. Not the one your family wants. We at first started planning a weedding in our home country Canada with more than 60 guests (which is far from everyone we ’should’ have invited) and it didn’t feel like us. We wanted something abroad and more intimate. It disappointed some family members but at the end of the day, our day was perfect and represented us and our love. This day is for you and your futur husband so keep that in mind
