Famous Weddings

They’re the bold and the beautiful. So naturally we look to them for inspiration on for our big day! Here are Perth Bride’s favourites.

Timeless wedding dresses

Diana Spencer became “The People’s Princess” when she married Prince Charles in 1980, and this dress could well be how she did it. Twenty years on polls show that more women today want to wear a dress like Diana’s then any other kind. The dress was designed by David and Elizabeth Emmanuel and featured a 25 foot train and 10,000 hand sewn pearls and sequins.

Hollywood girl Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier of Monaco in 1956 and a gorgeous full silk and lace dress. She sparked a fashion in wedding dresses which survives today. PIC

The dress the achingly stylish Jackie Kennedy Onassis wore when she wed American President John F Kennedy in 1953 has the distinction of being the most photographed wedding dress in history.  It was designed by Ann Lowe and can still be viewed today in a Boston museum.

Another Hollywood leading lady, Elizabeth Taylor, wore this $1,500 satin wedding gown- given to her as a gift by MGM studios- at her first of several weddings. This one was to hotel heir Conrad Hilton.

Our Favourite Australian Weddings

TV Presenter and former Perth boy Rove Mc Manus married fiancé Tasma Walton in Broome earlier this year. While the couple kept this wedding fairly private, we love that Tasma turned the tables on tradition for with the bold move of proposing to Rove, having fist received his mothers blessing.  The couple then married on a northwest beach in great Australian style...

Ex Big Brother contestant and Footballer Ryan Fitzgerald and his fiancé Belinda Irons married last year smack bang in the middle of an Adelaide Football stadium, amongst Adelaide Crows and Sydney Swans football players. Belinda wore a stunning Alexis George dress and kicked off her shoes to for a game of touch footy after the ceremony, which was blessed with Jamaican Rum. Truly Australian. Truly Original!
