Spice Girl Geri Halliwell Wows in White Lace Gown

19 May 2015

There was a beautiful sunny wedding in Woburn, Bedfordshire at the weekend, where Spice girl Geri Halliwell married Formula One boss Christian Horner. The couple got married at St Mary's Church in Woburn, followed by a reception at Woburn Abbey! The weather was perfect and Geri looked stunning, in a beautiful white couture lace gown.

Geri wore an elegant floor length, all-over lace dress designed by Phillipa Lepley. Her gown was white, with a flattering sweeping neckline and a v-shaped back. It also had three quarter length lace sleeves and a narrow band accentuating her waist.

This bridal look reminds us of Kate Middleton's wedding gown with the lace sleeves and buttons down the back. Lace is definitely here to stay!

Geri had a beautiful pale pink bouquet of peonies and roses, while the flower girls held posies of gypsophila and matching gypsophila circlets in their hair! Geri's daughter Bluebell walked her down the aisle, she wore a pretty pale blue flower girl dress, with dainty satin shoes.

Geri accessorised her lace gown with a raw edged cathedral length veil which was combed to create little volume across the head. Geri's veil was plain, with an elegant long blusher. She wore her veil quite far forward in the hair, to add to this draping look. This veil did not detract from the dress at all, it helped to finish her Bridal look! We love how Geri stuck to tradition and wore the blusher over her face as she walked down the aisle!

If you want to get a similar veil to Geri's, take a look at our AF001. This design is from our Classics collection, it has no decoration and is finished with a very thin stitched fine edge. This style is half combed with a gather as standard. If you want a smoother finish at the comb, like Geri, ask for this style flat combed. If you are looking for a flat combed veil with a softer tulle, see our new italian tulle two tier veil, C458A.

Geri kept her hair and make-up natural, leaving her hair down in loose waves. Her look was complete, with some delicate vintage pearl drop earrings, which were her 'something old'. Geri also wore a friends diamond bracelet, for her 'something borrowed'. The flowergirl dresses provided her  'something blue' and her 'something new' was her beautiful bridal gown!

If you are looking for some pearl drop earrings like Geri's we have two options for you, our P651E drops have a pretty cluster of crystal finished with a pearl drop.  If you wanted a slightly longer drop, our E104 is a great choice too!

If you like the lace look but have already got a strapless gown, why not think about wearing a shrug for the ceremony? Our SH2-2 has lovely French lace, this could be worn to create two different looks with a strapless gown, for a day to night look. See more of our shrug collection here.
