Celebrity Wedding Style…..Sophie Winkleman

September 28, 2009

Congratulations to Freddy Windsor and Sophie Winkleman who recently got married at Hampton Court Palace in a lavish ceremony. There were 400 guests present including Lady Helen Taylor, rock star Bryan Adams and Princess Eugenie to name a few.

As Sophie walked down the aisle to become the newest member of the Royal Family she looked picture perfect in a full-skirted ivory gown made of 8-ft of silk duchesse satin, hand-embellished with sequins, beads and crystal which had been created for her by one of her mother-in-law’s favourite designers, Anna Bystrova from Roza Couture. The dress featured a delicate sweetheart neckline and a three-meter train.

The bride left her hair loose and flowing as a simple diamond tiara and full-length veil worked beautifully with the dress. Sophie opted for a delicate pair of pearl/diamond drop earrings which balanced the entire look and was the perfect finishing touch. Girls Love Pearls have picked up on the earrings worn by Sophie as they have a few pairs of earrings that are very similar to those worn by the bride.

Check these out…

These earrings are available to purchase from www.girls-love-pearls.co.uk and are from the ‘Chic’ range.
Priced at only 12.95 GPB per pair you too can add a touch of ‘Royal Class’ to your wedding day look.


Celebrity Wedding Style – Rachel Stevens

September 24, 2009

S Club 7 and Strictly Come Dancing star Rachel Stevens tied the knot with Alex Bourne in a Jewish ceremony on the 2nd August 2009. They married in the London’s fancy Claridge’s hotel with over 180 guests and Rachel really did make a beautiful bride, looking effortlessly beautiful in her princess-style ball gown with a fitted silk bodice and full tulle skirt designed for her by Mira Zwillinger. Rachel’s dress featured crystal beading and a pretty feathered corsage.

With such a beautiful elegant dress Rachel did the right thing when it came to choosing her wedding jewellery, she kept it simple yet elegant with her dangling diamond earrings and a matching bracelet. For real life brides who may not have a celebrity budget, Girls Love Pearls have the perfect ‘Chanel’ inspired diamante bracelet that is virtually identical to the one worn by Rachel but this version from Girls Love Pearls is a bargain at 24.95GBP.

Style Tip: For brides that want to really push the boat out with some bling, why not buy 2 or 3 of these sparkly bracelets and wear them stacked!


Corrs for celebration!

September 3, 2009

Congratulations to Andrea Corr and Brett Desmond who got married on Friday 21st August in a major celebrity wedding attended by 400 guest’s hilltop Saint Joseph’s Church in County Clare on the west coast of Ireland. Billed as Irish society’s wedding of the decade, it attracted stars from the world of music and sport. The Corrs front woman, Andrea looked stunning as she arrived at the picturesque church wearing a white strapless Vera Wang dress and veil.

For brides who are considering a similar style dress to that of what Andrea wore, here is some style advice from Girls Love Pearls as to what jewellery and accessories would work well with this style wedding dress.

As there is quite a lot going on with the dress with the satin champagne sash at the front and the flower on the bust line of the gown some brides (like Andrea) may want to keep the rest of the look quite minimal and not too fussy. A delicate pair of ivory or champagne coloured pearl stud earrings would be an excellent choice as would a lovely pearl bracelet or necklace in a cream and champagne mix to complete the jewellery look. The mix of cream and champagne pearls would have picked up the champagne in her silk sash.

Items below available from Girls Love Pearls

For brides wanting to wear a necklace with this style dress, our Phoebe Floating necklace (49.95GBP) would be the most appropriate choice.

If a bride did not want to wear a necklace as the flower detail along the bust line may be enough for some brides, then a bride could choose our beautiful pearl bracelet with a lovely heart charm (38.12GBP) for a touch of romance, or our crystal and pearl watch (38.95GBP) which also ensures the bride is not late for the church!
