American photographer Zackery Michael met British model Lola McDonnell through work years ago when Lola moved to New York to pursue a career. The creatives discovered they were friends when Zackery posted a photo he had taken of them. It took months for them to find a date due to their busy travel schedules. It was like meeting up blindly when they finally did.

They connected instantly when they arrived at a fancy restaurant dressed in the same black leather jackets, and denim. 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 modeling job right before they swapped the New York chill for Mexico’s heat, had no idea. “It was beautiful: a villa on the beach, with waves crashing at our feet,”Zackery keeps it all. “Nobody had clothes on; it was perfect.”Lola claims he nailed it: a single diamond Tiffany & Co. ring, its design dating back from 1910. “I love how classic it is, and the fact that it’s vintage and sustainable is a huge bonus for me,”She continues.
When it came time to plan the wedding, Lola and Lola knew they wanted it to be in the Cotswolds. They have spent many summers there since then. They booked Hilles House, a Grade II* arts and crafts venue where the late Isabella Blow lived, for August 29, 2020. They finally got the wedding they wanted, in June this year, three dates later.

120 guests travelled to central England’s rolling hills to see Lola and Zackery wed. Tom Mitchell, a dear friend, took their wedding photos prior to the ceremony. This allowed them to get the tears out and spend more time together.
Lola wore a nude Khaite dress from Catherine Holstein’s fall 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.
