a model wedding
Congratulations to Kate Moss and Jamie Hince! They celebrated their nuptials in style this weekend, in an intimate but (obviously) star studded ceremony in the Cotswolds.
The success Kate has earned after years in the fashion business and with her own modelling career, can definitely be attributed to her beauty, style and the unique versatility she is blessed with in front of the camera. For years she has amazed and entertained us, walking down catwalks all over the world and posing in thousands of designer creations. Despite the couples status the build-up to the Moss/Hince wedding didn’t quite cause the same level of hysteria as the recent Royal wedding; nonetheless excitement and anticipation most certainly builds when one of world’s best known and loved fashion stars is getting married!
They exchanged vows in a local village church close to their Cotswolds home, where they later hosted their reception. Kate arrived at the church with her Father in a silver Rolls Royce. She wore a beautiful veil edged with lace and beading and the dress was a classic, silk, bias-cut piece. It was designed by friend and designer, John Galliano and was a rich ivory shade, with the bottom adorned with beads and sequins. She looked positively stunning. Jamie looked dashing in a powder blue tuxedo and completed his look with sunglasses; the ultimate rock n’ roll accessory.
They threw out the rule book when making a few decisions, starting with having no less than 15 bridesmaids, including Kate’s Daughter Lila-Grace. Instead of having a best man Jamie broke with tradition and had a “best woman” in the form of his band-mate Alison Mosshart.
I don’t know what sort of reports I was expecting of their big day and I still can’t say if I was surprised or not. When the most famous super model in the world ties the knot with a rock star, you definitely expect a media circus and to hear a flurry of colourful rumours. The day appeared to be very ‘celebrity’ yet very ‘normal’ too. It seemed to be a laid-back and quirky, classically traditional yet understated affair all at once. As an eager spectator (via internet news of course) it seems like they created their idea of a perfect wedding, which is what everyone strives to achieve. The day seemed to reflect how we perceive them – very British and undeniably cool.
We wish them every happiness for the future and hope they enjoyed every second of the day!
