Her handsome groom wore a Patrick Johnson suit. Khalil has become the designer du jour for local celebrity brides in much the same way Vera Wang is globally. When Hamish spoke of the moment he first laid eyes on his beautiful bride in her dress, he exclaimed, “I’ve never actually had my breath taken away in my life, until that moment when I saw Zoe.” Zoe’s dress was perfectly accented with a simple rose flower tiara and stud earrings.

Many celebrity brides choose vintage style or replica wedding gowns to show off their sense of nostalgia and impeccable taste in fashion. For example, Kate Middleton wore a wedding dress styled after the late Princess Grace’s gown with the lace detailed bodice almost an exact replica except for its neckline. Seed pearl buttons, cap sleeves and a pond train completed both Princess Grace’s and Kate’s look with even their veils being similar too!

The groom created her ring himself!

Celebrities’ interest in vintage fashion and jewellery has helped to fuel public admiration of vintage wedding accessories, often bringing an emotional connection between the cherished jewellery piece and their memorable day.

Make memories at your wedding by showing off an antique diamond wedding ring, a strand of Victorian beads, a carved ivory hair comb or a vintage-inspired wedding dress.
