Today I’m blogging a beautifully elegant affair from the heart of Jerusalem that shows you that you don’t necessarily have to incorporate a rainbow of colour or an abundance of details to have the wedding of your dreams. A destination wedding in Israel’s historical capital city, Natalie and Olivier’s white-on-white minimal theme is thoroughly timeless and perfectly set against the glorious backdrop of Jerusalem.
Minimal it may be, but will you just look at that custom-designed Inbal Dror wedding dress? I give you full permission to be green with envy over it — it’s absolutely gorgeous.
Not only is Natalie an incredibly beautiful bride, all glowing skin and glossy locks, but her and her French husband Olivier were one of the first couples ever to hold their wedding at the brand new Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem, the city’s latest luxury venue.
Simple, elegant, fun, and relaxed — this wedding is perfectly executed in every way. Photography is by Chiko who’s making his debut appearance today on STG. Welcome to ‘Club Smashing’ , Chiko!
Choosing to marry in Jerusalem
Natalie, the bride: I was born in Jerusalem and it is a very special place to me, it has a lot of sentimental value and is a really unique place. We loved the idea of the Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem because it was brand new. We were the first or second wedding there and the decor is just fabulous so there wasn’t much that we needed to do in terms of styling.
