Hope you all had a good weekend? Busy weekend for ‘celebrity’ weddings this weekend, and all very different!
Boho Chic – Kate Moss and Jamie Hince
First of all, Kate Moss married Jamie Hince in an elaborate ‘Cotswolds Affair’ mixing boho chic with Rock n’ Roll! They married in the beautiful village of Little Farringdon and Kate wore a John Galliano gown. It was gold, sequined and sheer – very ‘boho romantic’ with sophisticated embellishments which gave it that luxurious look.
I thought it was fab, very reflective of her style and it got me thinking about Kate Middleton’s recent Jenny Packham creation of sheer sequined fabric which looked fresh and floaty.
I loved her vintage esque long flowing veil – again very boho and the perfect compliment to the dress!
Love her style – try Alice from Charlotte Balbier. Deep ivory gold colourings with simple straps, perfect for Country Chic!
A Right Royal Affair – Prince Albert and Charlene Wittstock
Prince Albert of Monaco wed Charlene Wittstock this weekend (although it wasn’t without controversy) but leaving that aside, Charlene wore 2 dresses (like Kate!) both designed by Georgio Armarni.
The first was her ‘official’ wedding ceremony dress was an off the shoulder white duchesse satin gown with fabulous embroidery and detail on the bodice with an impressively long train. According to reports, the team at Armani took 2,500 hours completing the dress. The thousand plus swarovski crystal and embroidery detail on the bodice took up 700 hours alone! Teamed with very ’1930s esque’ hair which I particularly loved, she looked as demure and graceful as Kate but with her own unique style.
The evening dress was a more playful Armani tiered gown, a great compliment to the heavier and formal structured dress for the blessing.
Love the look? Try Olympia for Charlotte Balbier for a tiered one shoulder dress with long lace bodice – very elegant and graceful! Cora by Amanda Wyatt for an off the shoulder regal feel and Isabella by Charlotte Balbier for a simple silk satin stately look.

Contemporary Country: Abbey Clancy and Peter Crouch
Abbey married footballer Peter Crouch at the Stapleford Park Hotel in Leicestershire, probably the most low key affair of all three! Abbey chose a dress from less well known designer Giles Deacon and it was one to reflect a more contemporary style for the day.
The flattering bodice really showed off Abbey’s tiny figure while the big romantic skirt was fun and indulgent . Coupled with the simple rose bouquet and her trademark long flowing blond locks, it was a more contemporary twist on the ‘English Country’ wedding. I loved the very rich and sumptuous silk fabric, pleating and rouching.
Abbey wore it with red nails and vampish heavy eye makeup for quite a dramatic look!

Love her Look: Try a longer fitted bodice with an unusual skirt in a fishtail style like Casablanca by Blue by Enzoani or for something fuller, try
