A wedding proposal at sunset for Julia Toledano and Roman Ichbia

They got engaged during the summer of 2020 marked by the pandemic. Roman Ichbia had taken advantage of the confinements to organize the wedding. “It was one of the most magical moments of my life,” recalls Julia Toledano. “We were in the south of France, with family and friends, and Novel offered me a short getaway to our favorite hotel, Les Roches Rouges in Saint-Raphaël. I didn’t expect anything, we always spend a few days there during the summer. But the second night, he asked me to be ready earlier than usual to watch the sunset from a restaurant on the beach. It’s not his style at all. As I was lazy after my day at the beach, I quickly got ready and joined him. I really didn’t expect anything.”

The two got into the car and he tied a blindfold on her. “He took me to one of my favorite places in the world: the Palais Bulles,” she explains. “When we arrived, he took off the blindfold, got down on one knee and proposed to me, next to the infinity pool. He had booked a dinner with a chef and we were able to enjoy this magical place.”

A first civil marriage in Paris

After the engagement, the couple plans to hold two wedding ceremonies, the first in Paris for the civil wedding. They collaborated with Evelyne Layani to organize the ceremony and the party that followed at the hotel Le Marois. For the civil ceremony, the young bride wore a revisited and very light version of the jacket Bar Dior with trousers in a very particular cream shade. “For the after-party, I wanted something sexier. I opted for a bustier open in the back which kept the elegance of the look while infusing it with a bit of modernity”, she continues. “Unsurprisingly, I put on Nodaleto : them Bulla Smith gold color. I love the very 90s look of the closed mules. It was perfect to complete my outfit Diorthese pieces tell the same story but with a different aesthetic.”
