Getting married to a private island in the Mediterranean sounds just like the plot of a Hollywood blockbuster, but also for Jenny and Philipp, it was an Ibiza wedding. The late summer of 2017 watched them invite their loved ones to the private island of Tagomago, off the east coast of Ibiza, to get a lavish bohemian ceremony and reception which could indeed have been worthy of a movie production. “We chose Tagomago because it’s unique,” says Jenny. “Usually you can’t rent the island for personal events, but we were able to find an exception we decided to get it done.”
After a whirlwind love in the day they met in 2015 (“It was love at first sight!” Confirms Jenny), the couple — who met through mutual friends — were engaged in just six months and married after a year. Islands are a recurring motif in their connection, with Philipp proposing to Jenny on New Year’s Eve over sunset over a beach in the Caribbean. “It was quite intimate,” she says of this experience.
With that instant, the wedding planning started and Jenny enlisted the expert services of premier Ibiza wedding planner Kerry Anne Winton of Ibiza Wedding. “I’ve been visiting the island to holidays my entire life,” explains Jenny of her passion for the Balearics. “Philipp enjoys it too.” The couple chosen island photographer Gypsy Westwood to catch the magic of this day. “We’re so glad we chose her,” says Jenny. “She took the most memorable images.”

Under the watchful eye of Danielle Hodgson Lindley of island event styling agency Velvet Circus, ” Jenny’s vision came to life just like a dream come true.
Guests were invited across to the island of Tagomago by personal vessel, where they were treated to a broad choice of cocktails on arrival (“We created a big cocktail menu with something to suit everybody’s taste,” explains Jenny) since they shot in the enchanting views and settled to the lavish night and day ahead. Surrounded by turquoise ocean, bright blue skies and lush green countryside with views of Ibiza in the distance, the place has been nothing less than paradisiacal.
Meanwhile, Jenny was preparing for her big day in a beautiful villa high in the mountains of Ibiza’s northwest shore, with in-demand hair and make-up artist Louise Maxwell making a relaxed, natural bohemian look full with blossom crown to complement Jenny’s gorgeous Pronovias dress and Charlotte Olympia shoes. The groom wore a bespoke lawsuit by tailor Simon Scottowe, looking every bit the running companion because of his style siren bride.
