See What Ciara Wore to Her Wedding to Russell Wilson
Plus, check out a sketch of the bridesmaids' dresses.
Ciara and Russell Wilson are officially married!
Even though guests weren't allowed to bring their phones into the ceremony, the singer didn't make us wait long to see what she and her new husband wore to their wedding ceremony on Wednesday at Peckferton Castle in Liverpool, England.
Ciara said "yes" in a custom Roberto Cavalli Couture gown by creative director Peter Dundas. The gown was designed with white silk tulle embroidered with floral motif and delicate glass beading covered with Chantilly lace applique. "Looking like a fairytale princess bride in #CavalliCouture," Dundas wrote in a caption.
Wilson complemented his bride in a Giorgio Armani Made to Measure ensemble and Ciara's son, Future Wilburn Jr., donned a custom Armani Junior tuxedo.
The "I Bet" singer's eight bridesmaids — which included Kelly Rowland, LaLa Anthony, makeup artist Yolonda Fredrick and Russell's sister Anna Wilson — also got the tailor-made treatment.
Ciara tapped Michael Costello, who has designed for the likes for Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce, to create a customized look for every bridesmaid.
Since each dress featured its own silhouette (all made with black silk satin stretch), the designer created a custom French lace choker for each lady so that there would be one cohesive element among the group.
According to Costello, the looks were inspired by the dress he designed for Ciara at this year's Billboard Music Awards.
"Every girl's individual style is implemented in the design of their dress, as well as their personality. Ciara made sure of that," the designer tells Pret-a-Reporter via email. "It was a pleasure to be a part of her special day with Russell."
