Alex Jones’ Magical Winter Wedding

22 January 2016

There was a magical winter wedding in Wales on New Year's Eve, when presenter Alex Jones married long time love Charlie Thomson. The happy couple got married at Cardiff castle. They definitely celebrated the new year in a way they will never forget!

Alex wore a Sassi Holford gown with a full tulle skirt with an off the shoulder sequined bodice and satin beaded belt. The whole day was like a winter fairytale with a mix of mistletoe, fairy lights and the stunning castle setting. Alex said:  "It was hard to find a wedding dress that wasn't summery, plus the sequins on the top of the dress made it a bit more Christmas-like."

Keeping accessories simple, Alex wore a long veil with a raw edge and a light crystal scatter. This veil complemented her dress perfectly!

To get a look like Alex, see our cut crystal scatter veil C459C. This style has an embroidered scallop edge creating a pretty shape to finish the veil off nicely.

Another similar veil we have is from our Classics collection. Our AF005 has a delicate fine stitched edge with a mixed scatter of pearl and crystal all over. See our Classic veil collection here.

Alex's dress had a satin belt at the waist with central beaded detail. You can add a beaded belt to many bridal gowns to emphasize the waist. The two styles on the right would both add a hint of sparkle to complete a bridal outfit. Choose Belt 79 for sparkling silver crystal or Belt 60 has intricate silver beading.

For the evening Alex changed her look by removing the sequined lace and beaded satin belt, to reveal a strapless satin bodice which she then finished with a wide black satin belt with a large bow to one side. We love this idea of creating two looks from day to night. There are so many ways you can do this by changing your accessories.
