I attended the most beautiul wedding of 2011 last month – the wedding of my gorgeous business partner, Linda, the mother of my best friend, my mentor and the lady that helped me make my dream come true.
After a long 17 years engagment, she and her wonderful fiance, Tom, finally tied the knot in a glamorous white marquee. I was pretty emotional for I had been praying for months that they would take this amazing step together. I was also really really tired from a really full-on day. The wedding was on the same day I had the denim shoot and then I had the privilege of playing piano at church. We rushed to the wedding after church, I didn’t get time to put on makeup and had to change into my dress in the car. This dress may look familiar to you, as I used it to style the gorgeous Ebony in this shoot. It looked much better on her.
Tom is Greek (I used an Italian title because I know even less Greek) and Linda was going to wear her red Sophia Kokosalaki dress for the main course of the dinner so I couldn’t resist a Grecian-inspired outfit for myself. Linda had 3 outfits, a Connie Simonetti gown, then a violet Oscar de la Renta one-shouldered dress from Net-a-Porter, and then the red Sophia Kokosalaki dress (straight from the runway). She was ravishing.
I actually gave myself the vintage challenge and wore EVERYTHING vintage- the dress, the jewellery, the belt, the shoes and even my Chrisitan Dior clutch. My favourite piece from this outfit would have to be the gold collar necklace- it gives me a rash afterwards as I have nickel allergy, but Linda was worth it :)
