After getting engaged last August, Ellie Goulding and Caspar Jopling are officially husband and wife!
The 32-year-old Grammy-nominated songstress and the 27-year-old art dealer’s wedding was fit for music royalty. The church wedding saw royal family members and famous Hollywood stars in attendance.
The newlyweds exchanged vows inside York Minster Cathedral in Yorkshire, England. It was later followed by a reception at Castle Howard. The pop star reportedly arrived at the venue around 3:35pm in a blue Volkswagen camper van decorated with flowers. It was hard to miss the bride emerged from the vehicle with loud cheers from the crowd.
Inside, both Goulding and Jopling exchanged vows and sealed it with a lovely kiss. The lovebirds were surrounded by friends and family, as well as adorable flower girls and pageboys. “They giggled together and looked extremely happy to be man and wife,” a source described.
It’s worth noting that the pop star wore a hand-embroidered, long-sleeve Chloé bespoke wedding dress designed by Natacha Ramsay-Levi while Caspar wore bespoke tailoring by Huntsman.
Get this, the bride’s wedding gown took more than 640 hours to construct! Just Jared shared that “the silk double crêpe white dress was hand embroidered with White Roses of York and subtly embellished with white glass beads. Doubled with a silk radzimir petticoat, the garment took more than 640 hours to construct and highlights the meticulous skill and savoir-faire of the Chloé Paris atelier”.
As for the final touches, “the airy and delicate silk tulle veil and organza collar were embroidered with the bride and groom’s initials: E and C. It took 591 hours for the petites mains to hand-make this creation!”
“I was so thrilled and excited to collaborate with Natacha at Chloé on my wedding dress. I have loved the brand and their incredible team for years, so it only seemed right for Chloé to play big part of this special day,” Goulding was previously quoted as saying.
“Natacha worked alongside me to design something timeless and classic, but with all the Chloé spirit. Natacha is a very talented designer and I have admired her work from day one. I have never felt more special than the moment I first tried on the dress during my fitting in Paris, it was utterly awe-inspiring to see the craftsmanship and attention to detail,” she added.
It was also a star-studded affair as British high society included Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice (with boyfriend Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi), and their mother, Sarah Ferguson. A-list couple Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom were also present at the wedding ceremony.
