When Pippa Middleton wed James Matthews over the weekend, she looked absolutely stunning in a bespoke wedding gown by British designer Giles Deacon. Featuring a high-neck lace bodice that flowed into a voluminous skirt, Middleton accessorised with a Stephen Jones millinery veil and a handmade Maidenhair Fern tiara with a matching hairpiece by Robinson Pelham.
However, Middleton didn’t stay in the Giles Deacon gown past the ceremony, reportedly changing into a second gown by Spanish brand Provonias for the evening reception at her parents’ house, Bucklebury Manor.
Provonias is known for its long, flowing bridal gowns and glamorous cocktail dresses that are often spotted on the red carpet on the likes of models Bar Rafealii and Camilla Alves. With stores around Europe and stockists throughout the world, including Australia, the gowns are an elegant choice for any bride.
Considering Middleton’s choice of wedding gown, we bet her second dress, although show stopping, was simpler, allowing her to move around easily—and even hit the dance floor!
Pippa’s sister Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge also famously changed into a second Alexander McQueen gown for her wedding reception in 2011, which she styled with a soft white angora bolero.
