“We couldn’t have imagined it to be any more perfect and personal,” she explained at the time. “And honestly, it was easy and simple. Louis and I knew exactly what we wanted from the start. It was a very intimate celebration. It was so sentimental and sweet. I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.”

Meadow Walker Recalled Being Separated From Louis Thornton-Allan During the COVID-19 Pandemic
While reflecting on her relationship with Louis Thornton-Allan, Meadow Walker told Vogue in 2021 that she had been separated from him during the COVID-19 pandemic for a while. She had been working in Europe when she was forced to quarantine for a job. Thornton-Allan was in New York City.
“It was the longest we had spent apart since being together, and I missed him so much,” she recalled at the time. “He flew to London to surprise me, and we quarantined together. After spending more time with his family in England, he couldn’t wait for the ring we had been thinking of designing and proposed with a ring I had been given on set that day. It was so sentimental and sweet. I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.”
The pandemic also had a hand in the delays and other issues of their wedding. “The pandemic impacted our plans,” Meadow Walker explained. “Louis’s family wasn’t able to attend. A lot of close friends whom we consider family were also unable to attend due to travel restrictions.”
