Princess Madeleine of Sweden weds in Valentino

Swedish princess Madeleine yesterday married her New York sweetheart Christopher O’Neill in a dreamlike wedding gown created by no-one else then Valentino Garavani. Anyone reading my blog would know that Valentino is one of my favourite designers (check out previous posts Timeless blue china # Part 1 Floral Perfection), and was therefore more than excited about the brides decision. The princess was as expected stunningly beautiful and the wedding followed a light-hearted summer mood celebrating the princess native Sweden.

In true Valentino spirit, the bride’s dress was elegantly cut featuring a well-defined upper body following a romantic flowing skirt ending in a four meter long train. The dress was made out of delicate silk-organza and ivory Chantilly lace covered the upper body and a small cap sleeve, which at times fell down showing the princess tanned shoulders. The veil followed the same material as the dress – silk organza – with tulle edges decorated with “point d´esprit”, and small delicate orangeflowers in Chantilly lace.

The dress was romantic perhaps even cute, and there could not have been a more appropriate choice balancing the royal expectations and the princess personal style. Despite the extravagant volume of the dress – there was an “down-to-earth” feel to the dress – tastefully combining the natural summer theme with couture craftsmanship.
