American photographer Zackery Michael and British Model Lola McDonnell met through work many years ago when Lola moved from Britain to pursue her career Stateside. After Zackery posted a picture of her, they realized they had a lot in common. Due to their busy travel schedules it took them several months to get a date in their diary. It was almost like they had never met before.

The connection was instantaneous after they both arrived at a fancy restaurant in identical black leather jackets and denim outfits. Both ordered whiskey. “When Lola suggested we get the hell out of there and go shoot some pool, I think that’s when love was in the air,” says Zackery. “We pretty much haven’t really been apart since.”
The proposal was made in Tulum. Lola, who was booked on a modelling job right before they swapped the NY chill for Mexico’s heat, had no idea. “It was beautiful: a villa on the beach, with waves crashing at our feet,” shares Zackery. “Nobody had clothes on; it was perfect.”Lola says he nailed this ring: a single, diamond Tiffany & Co. design from 1910. “I love how classic it is, and the fact that it’s vintage and sustainable is a huge bonus for me,”She adds.
The couple knew they wanted to have the wedding in the Cotswolds. Lola was born there and they have been summering there ever since. They booked Hilles House, a Grade II* arts and crafts venue where the late Isabella Blow lived, for 29 August 2020. They finally got the wedding they wanted, in June this year, three dates later.

Lola and Zackery got married in the rolling hills of central England. Tom Mitchell, a dear friend, took the couple’s wedding photos before the ceremony so that they could get through the tears and spend more time with their loved one.
Lola wore a nude Khaite dress from Catherine Holstein’s autumn/winter 2019 collection – “when I first saw it on the runway I was obsessed” – because she knew she didn’t want a classic white wedding look. “It felt soft and pretty, yet a little rock‘n’roll, with its structure and sheerness,”This is how the bride explained it. “I also loved the vintage feel it had to it; I’ve always been about those ‘forever’ staple pieces to keep in your wardrobe. My Khaite dress will be worn again and again.” Silk lingerie from Teya Silk, nude Stuart Weitzman heels, diamanté drop earrings from a local shop in Stroud called Strangeness and Charm, and a matching sparkly Loeffler Randall completed her bridal ensemble.
