A Lavish Affair

If money were no object, could you imagine your wedding dress being made from 35 meters of silk & a 15 foot train? Well for Nell Diamond, the daughter of ex-Barclays boss Bob Diamond, that was very much her dream dress for her wedding held this weekend at the Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc, South of France.

Designed by Olivier Theyskens, the stunning sweetheart ballgown wedding dress featured an intricate embroidered bead & feather design, Oh! and did I already mention the 15ft train! With a dress to this spec it was rather refreshing to see Nell’s hair, make-up and baby’s breath bouquet kept simple, sophisticated and elegant.

Her bridesmaids (all 8 of them!) wore a floor length one shoulder Grecian style dress in a choice of 2 colours, soft sorbet pinks & a champagne neutral designed by Prabal Gurung. Indeed it is a good call to have designers within your network of friends!

And so with all the almighty weight of her ceremony dress, I was rather relived to see Nell change into a gorgeous one shoulder plisse reception dress, captured whilst cutting her naked wedding cake with floating roses at each tear. Mmmmm…. I wonder if those were real roses or hand moulded sugar paste roses, probably the latter considering the sheer lavishness of this rather delectable wedding! x
