Think pink! That’s what magazine editor Maggie Prescott says at the start of the classic Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire musical, Funny Face, when she decides the next edition of her magazine isn’t good enough, and throws it all out in favour of an entirely pink issue.
I think that’s exactly what today’s couple did here, too, with the bride’s spectacular blush lace gown, and pink roses galore. Meet Amalia and Sergio, who were married on the 14 April in a church ceremony in Castelsardo, on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Sardinia, followed by a marquee reception. Castelsardo had special significance for the couple, as it is also Sergio’s birthplace.
Italian designer Elisabetta Delogu is a happy new discovery for me, and Amalia’s showstopping dress, with its dramatic, intricate blush pink lace came from Elisabetta’s ‘Greensleeves’ collection. I just love the colour, as well as the Victorian inspired sleeves, with their puffed and ruffled shoulders and cuffs, and the silk flowers and duck egg blue sequins adorning the neckline.
“I liked the pink colour – I didn’t want a white dress. It’s a unique piece, handcrafted, and nobody will have the same dress.”
