“Intimate weddings have always been chic—even before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Joy Proctor, who designed Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s intimate wedding in the South of France. And we couldn’t agree more—small weddings, no matter how petite, are weddings nonetheless; well-deserving of attention to detail, jaw-dropping fashion moments, and a stellar guest experience.

With couples postponing and rethinking their wedding plans for 2020 and 2021 with fresh priorities, safety, and national and international regulations in mind, celebrations have inherently become smaller, more intimate—and, if we’re being honest, more intentional and personal than ever before.

Kitchen is heart of the home for award-winning designer Simone Van Der Plas

Interior designer Simone Van Der Plas answers the phone from her “poxy” little house on a lifestyle block in Te Horo, north of Wellington. She’s lambing at the moment and has kept two as pets.

Van Der Plas started out designing exhibition spaces and displays for her family’s business. She learned to build and do architectural drawings and developed a keen eye for colour, textiles and graphics.

When she had her two children, who are now adults, she started renovating an old cottage and people started asking her to look at their interiors. She retrained, opened up shop and, “it grew exponentially from there”.
