Wow. I am above and beyond in love with all of the photographs taken this past weekend of Margherita Missoni‘s wedding to Gran Turismo driver Eugenio Amos. They were married at the church, Santa Maria Annunciata in Margherita’s hometown of Brunello, Italy.
The bride’s good friend, Giambattista Valli helped supervise the design of her wedding gown using Missoni silk and organza. As Vogue Italia wrote, “15 years ago she cut out a picture from a magazine and since then she has always wanted a dress like it. She has created this one together with her mother Angela, with the ‘couture’ supervision of Giambattista Valli.”
Isn’t it breathtaking? I am absolutely in love with the off-shoulder style and the intricate designs and adornments that cover the dress. The dress was embellished with embroideries and floral appliques inspired by Missoni prints. Vogue Italia wrote, “The tiara and the very long veil, together with the wedding dress, gave the bride a noble and regal allure.”
Margherita posted on Twitter: “The dress was made by the women who saw me growing up, following my precise directions and with giamba’s ‘couture counselling’.”
Margherita’s good friends, Tatiana Santo Domingo and Eugenie Niarchos served as the bridesmaids along with Margherita’s sister, Teresa. This wedding is a beautiful blend of the old world with a relaxed and modern sensibility.
I love that her bridesmaids wore daisy wreaths and that guests at the wedding dined on low-set tables overflowing with Missoni fabrics and pillows in the century-old outdoor park landscape of Angela’s home. From the bouquets to the picnic style food and dining (the cake topped with wild berries), the country wedding had both a feminine and bohemian feel – very Margherita Missoni.
