Ellie Goulding and Caspar Jopling are officially Mr and Mrs after the pair tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in York on Saturday (August 31) at the York Minster cathedral.
The bride wore a bespoke Chloé wedding dress designed by Natacha Ramsay-Lévi.
The silk double crêpe white dress was hand embroidered with White Roses of York and subtly embellished with white glass beads.
Doubled with a silk radzimir petticoat, the garment took more than 640 hours to construct and highlights the meticulous skill and savoir-faire of the Chloé Paris atelier.
As a final touch, the airy and delicate silk tulle veil and organza collar were embroidered with the bride and groom’s initials: E and C.
It took 591 hours for the petites mains to hand-make this creation.
Ellie said, “I was so thrilled and excited to collaborate with Natacha at Chloé on my wedding dress.
I have loved the brand and their incredible team for years, so it only seemed right for Chloé to play big part of this special day.
Natacha worked alongside me to design something timeless and classic, but with all the Chloé spirit. Natacha is a very talented designer and I have admired her work from day one.
I have never felt more special than the moment I first tried on the dress during my fitting in Paris, it was utterly awe-inspiring to see the craftsmanship and attention to detail.”
Natacha Ramsay-Levi said, “Ellie was very involved in the design of her wedding dress. Together we worked on a collage of references from the Victorian era that she wanted to weave into the design, in dialogue with the historical York cathedral where the ceremony was to take place.
Her creative point of view made the process fluid and inspiring, and I feel that the end result really reflects her personal sense of style.“
She looks majestically angelic.
I love the Victorian references, and how the look had an old English feel.
A timeless classic if I ever saw one.
