Model Miranda Kerr has finally shared photos from her wedding to Snapchat founder Even Spiegel which took place in May this year. Tasteful and intimate, the couple tied the knot in the garden of their home in California with just 45 friends and family in attendance. Now, in the new edition of US Vogue, the Australian model has opened up about her nuptials, creating the day of her dreams and the inspiration behind her breathtaking gown.
For her big day, the bride chose to wear a custom Dior Haute Couture dress which was exclusively designed for her by the brand’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri. “I think it’s every girl’s dream to have Dior design her wedding dress,” Kerr told Vogue. Inspired by the iconic Grace Kelly, and the gown that she wore for her wedding to Prince Rainer of Monaco in 1956, Kerr’s gown was created with a demure long sleeve, high neck and delicately appliqued with lilies of the valley.
She also wore a long flowing veil and a pearl-encrusted headdress designed by London milliner Stephen Jones.
“Honestly, I couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful wedding dress,” the bride said.
“’I’ve had a lot of fun with fashion, and I used to be more wild, free, bohemian.
“But in this period of my life, my style is more pulled back. My greatest sources of inspiration have always been Grace, Audrey Hepburn, and my grandmother, who at 80 has an effortless chic: a nice pant, a white blouse, a scarf, a little heel.”
While there was no bridal party, Miranda’s son, six-year-old Flynn played a big role in the day acting as ring bearer and joining his mother and stepfather for their first dance.
Precautions to preserve the couple’s intimacy also meant that guests were banned from posting on social media – even Snapchat – while a high white canopy suspended over the garden to thwart helicopters and drones. And, although the big day began by casually slow-roasting a chicken scented with turmeric and lemon, and an hour of yoga to calm the “matrimonial nerves” – you know, as you do – it ended like most typical weddings with a late night karaoke session.
