Prince Felix and Princess Claire of Luxembourg finally tied the knot in France on Saturday. The couple married in a beautiful religious ceremony in Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume’s magnificent 13th century Sainte Marie-Madeleine basilica.
Princess Claire did not dissapoint and looked stunning an Elie Saab wedding dress, the family’s favourite designer.
Here we take a close look at her bridal look. Let me know what you think!
Elie Saab created Claire’s stunning long-sleeved wedding gown. The creme-coloured silk dress was embroidered with floral motifs made out of chantilly lace as well as silver thread. It also featured embellishments of clear crystals and sequinned pearls.
The three metre long veil was made of ivory silk tulle and decorated with neo baroque floral motifs.
Claire wore a floral tiara that belongs to the Grand Ducal Collection, made out of diamonds set in yellow gold and silver, featuring a leaves and berries motif. It has a tradition as a wedding tiara and Claire is already the fifth bride to wear it.
She completed the look with diamond drop down earrings, also worn by her sister-in-law Princess Stephanie on her wedding day last year.
The hair and make-up
For her special day, the royal bride chose to wear her hair in a neat and elegant up’do and kept her make-up minimal, opting for mascara and a splash of soft pink lipstick.
When the bride stepped out of the Rolls Royce Phantom that drove her to the church, we got a glimpse of the bride’s shoes. Claire opted for a rounded toe, ankle strap white shoe with medium heels.
The stunning, yet simple, bouquet was made up of white freesias
The wedding rings
Like Princess Stephanie and Prince Guillaume did, the couple chose to have their wedding rings made of fair-trade gold to raise awareness on the importance of ethical trade.
