“Olly and I met on Hinge a few years ago, and the debate still stands about who liked whose picture first…” explains Frances Cookson, co-founder and creative director of uber-chic bridal brand Rewritten. After their first date at Spiritland bar in Kings Cross (which lasted until the staff kicked them out at closing time), Cookson knew they were onto to something special. A few years later, Olly, a software developer, proposed on a sea-view balcony on holiday in Mykonos with a stunning diamond and emerald ring he had designed by jeweller Bear Brooksbank, which took Cookson completely by surprise. Due to COVID, wedding planning fell onto the back burner, and the couple spent the next few years renovating their new home and welcoming a baby boy, Rafael, in the spring of 2022. But when an illness in the family meant that wedding planning suddenly became a priority to ensure loved ones could attend, the couple turned around the whole thing in just two months.After much debate over location, the wedding took place in London, where the couple met, with the ceremony at Islington Town Hall—the same place they registered the birth of their son the year before. The end result was a wedding focused on family, love and togetherness, with a hearty dose of old-school Hollywood glamour and elegance. Scroll on to read more about how the wedding unfolded in the bride’s own words, including everything from the dress she designed herself to all of the details behind the city-based nuptials.”
