W E D LUX E B R I D E S POT L I G H T Did you wear a specific fragrance on your wedding day? On my wedding day I wore a mixture of Tom Ford Grey Vetiver and Prada Infusion D’Iris. It’s an interesting mix that makes me feel confident and fresh. What beauty staples were in your wedding day makeup bag? Luckily, I had Jackie Gideon there to tend to my makeup needs. I did touch up my lips with my favourite Givenchy cream lipstick in 102 Beige Plume and I had small purse-sized bottles of Tom Ford Vetiver and Prada Infusion D’Iris that I sprayed throughout the night. We would love to know about the process of creating your custom gown with Ines Di Santo — can you share with our readers a bit about the design of your gown and the process of creating it? Finding a dress was very easy for me, as I have known Ines Di Santo for years and knew that when the time came, she would be the designer I would wear for my 14 WEDLUXE GLOBAL TREND REPORT APRIL 2016 wedding. She suggested that I try on the ‘Madrid’ dress from the 2015 Fall/Winter collection, and with a couple of changes to make it my own, it was the perfect dress! Adding the cape in the evening and my jewellery to complement the dress made it feel modern and chic and very much like me. I believe it is very important for brides to feel like a very glamorous version of themselves for their wedding day. Did you follow tradition and have something old, new, borrowed & blue? If so, what were they? Something Old: A vintage embroidered handkerchief from my great aunt. Something New: Christian Louboutin shoes. Something Borrowed: A heart-shaped metallic clutch. Something Blue: A Swarovski aquamarine crystal, which was pinned inside my wedding dress.
