Inside professional surfer and model, Imogen Caldwell’s, rustic beach wedding

When did you know you wanted to spend the rest of your lives together?

“[When] we first laid eyes on each other. It was love at first sight.”

How did you approach planning the wedding?

“​Keep it casual, relaxed and fun. We’re also building a house, so the stress levels were already high. I just ticked things off day-by-day and handballed a lot of jobs to our friends/family. I left a lot of decisions up to them and trusted their epic taste/style. My gorgeous and incredibly talented friend Ellen did our cake and I just told her to do what she wanted, it was perfect.”

What was your bridal beauty look?

“Simple, classic and fresh.”


What were the standout styling details you loved on the day?

“The hand-sewn pearl detailing on my [Bowie Rae] dress, the embroidered lettering on my bridesmaids robes, the divine dried blooms… So many beautiful intricate details.”


What did you love about your Homebodii pre-wedding ‘moment’?

“I surprised the girls with a divine duck egg blue linen robe each, personalised with their names. Something they can keep forever.”


Style note: To get ready for her dreamy beachside wedding, bride Imogen wore Homebodii’s Gaylene Linen Robe in white and her bridesmaids wore Homebodii’s Rebecca Linen robes in eggshell blue, which Imogen had personalised for each of her bridal party.

A word of advice for brides-to-be:

“Relax! It’s only one day, don’t put so much pressure on it. It will be amazing regardless of what the world throws at you,”

Imogen says

What was the biggest surprise on the day?

“There were lots of little hiccups during the day, but we just went with the flow and it was all part of what made the day so memorable.”


What are you most glad about when you look back at your beautiful wedding?

“[We’re so glad we] went through with it! We almost pulled the pin due to funds being a bit tight with the house going up, but I’m so glad we just went for it. We didn’t spend an excessive amount, it was a rustic wedding and everything we could have hoped for.”


When you look back on the day now, how do you feel?

“Sad it’s over! Would do it all again in a heartbeat.”
