If you’ve always harboured a desire to elope; quietly doing the deed somewhere sunny and exotic, then you may want to look to Denise Van Outen’s wedding for inspiration. The TV star married Any Dream Will Do star Lee Mead in the Seychelles in April, having told her friends that she and Mead were just going away on holiday, and with just a few close family members in tow.
While Mead went for hippie chic with a string of flowers around his neck, Van Outen wore a 70s style headband and Jenny Packham’s gorgeous, empire line ‘Rosalind’ gown – which I wouldn’t have thought of as a ‘destination dress’, but being relatively simple in terms of cut, it does the job very nicely, and with the bride looking utterly chilled and serene. But who wouldn’t in such idyllic surroundings? The couple married at the exclusive Labriz Silhouette Resort, where a wedding package costs 2,200 euros per couple.

The Jenny Packham dress is a perfect fit for Denise’s figure, and being strapless, floaty and light, it’s cool enough to withstand the balmy Seychelles climate. The addition of a sparkly headband worn on top of long hair and the string of flowers gives an instant 70s hippie-chic vibe to the entire look.
