An elegant wedding in King’s College Cambridge

Alexandra and Mark’s love story began nearly eight years ago in King’s College, Cambridge which with its stunning Chapel and rich university history, felt like a second home to them. They decided that it would be there, that they would tie the knot as their perfect wedding location. They wanted, however to add a special touch to their big day by creating a warm and inviting atmosphere that felt like an intimate family gathering.

 

 

 

Alexandra’s fashion-forward wedding dress was an absolute showstopper. Her choice of a Viktor and Rolf short dress, adorned with intricate and delicate floral appliqués, was a bold departure from the traditional bridal gown. To add a touch of regal elegance, she wore a custom-made exclusive Farah Novias cape that flowed behind her as she walked down the Chapel’s long aisle.

Alexandra’s magnificent cape was inspired by the iconic couture designs of the 1960s. The result was a breathtaking cape that had the elegance of a kimono from the back, while resembling a magnificent bow. Crafted meticulously from luxurious natural silk, the cape showcased the delicate flowers that adorned the dress, creating a harmonious and enchanting look. To complete her bridal look Alexandra wore a matching hand crafted headpiece of the same exquisite flowers that perfectly accessorised her French twist hairdo.

Alexandra’s Manolo Blahnik shoes were the perfect complement to her chic and modern look, while a Simone Rocha purse added the final flourish of femininity. It was a stunning reflection of her impeccable taste and love for all things fashion. And to add a touch of something blue, the bride incorporated the iconic Manolos buckle into her ensemble, making it her own unique “something blue.”

How has internet changed the wedding dress shopping?

The Internet has hugely transformed the wedding industry as most of wedding- planning is now online and potential brides-to-be have a much bigger range of wedding dresses and brands to choose from. The internet has helped brides come a lot more prepared to their appointments and it has helped us reach more brides globally. We have noticed, however that a lot of times even though you think a certain look might be perfect for you, it’s a whole different story when you actually try on the dresses. We have had so many brides who after helping them choose their perfect dress have said to us ‘I never thought this would be the style for me, but I love it’, and thats where are expertise comes in. 

 

 What are the latest trends in bridal fashion? 

All of our designer collections speak to every type of personality and wedding destination. From the minimalistic and more relaxed bride to the playful princess type bride, we explore every prominent fashion trend from the 2022 bridal collections. However, if we had to to choose some of the top trends of 2022 they would be square neck-lines, puffy sleeves and bohemian dresses.

 

 What do you like most about running a bridal boutique? 

Creating the perfect and most memorable buying experience for our brides is what I cherish and enjoy most. The look on a bride’s face when we find her the perfect dress is something that is truly magical and makes every bit of my work worth it. We also always share a very special bond with all of our brides as we always keep in touch with them after their wedding day, which for me is really beautiful.

An Unforgettable Wedding

I always dreamed on getting married to the love of my life wearing the perfect  wedding dress in a beautiful  place. On July 31st my dream was fulfilled by marring the man of my life with the dress I imagined in an amazing setting in Girona and today I can say that it was the most incredible day of my life. 

Like many other couples, it wasn’t easy to get there in a global pandemic. The preparation of the wedding was hard and full of changes and uncertainties, but finally after three date changes we were able to celebrate the love we had shared for years in an unforgettable ceremony. We got engaged in 2018 on the day of our anniversary and from that moment we knew that we wanted to have an intimate wedding with our family and closest friends and that we didn’t want to plan a complicated wedding with too much preparations. If there is one thing to learn from this pandemic, it’s that we need very little to be truly happy.

The Ceremony 

The wedding ceremony took place at Mas Marroch, a 15th-century gothic farmhouse located on the outskirts of Girona, owned by the Roca brothers. We fell in love with this beautiful rustic farmhouse from the first moment that we laid eyes upon it. The wedding celebration continued in the magnificent and elegant garden that surrounds the farmhouse and the floral decorations and live music gave a very romantic touch to the wedding.

 

 

 

 

 

The Wedding Venue

The wedding Reception was held in the Agora, a beautiful natural pavilion that all the guests fell in love with. For the dance, which was held where the banquet took place, I changed into a beautiful and comfortable dress that allowed me to move freely and enjoy the moment.

 

 

 

 

The Wedding Dress

As for my dresses… I discovered Farah’s bridal boutique through Instagram. After months of searching and thinking about how to describe the wedding dress of my dreams, I arrived accompanied by a large group of the most important women in my life. 

 

 

 

 

At the appointment, I remember Farah asking me about the wedding ceremony and the style of the wedding gown I was looking for, and to my surprise it only took a few minutes to find the dress of my dreams. All of her wedding dresses are perfect, but she captured the idea I wanted very quickly and the first wedding dress she took out was the gown that most defined my personalty. It was one of the most exciting moments in my preparations. We were all excited to see that this was finally the dress I was going to tie the knot in. Farah not only advised me on my two wedding dresses, but on all the bridal accessories I wore and she truly made me feel very special at all times.

Princess Beatrice wore Queen Elizabeth’s vintage gown for her wedding
