Peter Andre married Emily MacDonagh on Saturday, and we just could not wait to get a sneak peek at the dress. The couple tied the knot at the beautiful Mamhead House in Devon – a gorgeous Grade I-listed Georgian mansion.
Stretching over 164 acres of landscaped gardens, it includes an Italian-style terrace, 16 bedrooms, 10 reception rooms and eight bathrooms.
Emily MacDonagh wore a beautiful bespoke Sassi Holford gown. This stunning creation is in the finest Italian silk mikado, and the skirt has French lace discretely appliquéd inside each box pleat.
After the service, Emily told OK! Magazine: “I knew I’d be emotional but I didn’t think I’d be that emotional. I was completely calm and relaxed in the morning while getting ready, but when I could see Pete waiting at the end of the aisle for me, it set me off!”
Sassi and Emily worked together on the gown design, “Emily was such a pleasure to work with. We designed something that would reflect Emily’s own style and be perfect for her intimate family wedding to Peter. I was delighted she chose to wear a changing selection of accessories during her special day, all featuring the same French lace. For the daytime we created a long sleeve jacket and a cathedral veil, and for the evening a delicate cap sleeve jacket with an organza ribbon sash.”
Emily visited Sassi Holford in Taunton, Somerset for her fitting consultations, and her dress was created by Sassi’s expert team, some who have worked with Sassi for over 25 years.
“Emily is from Taunton and told me how much she’d admired my boutique and gowns for many years as a young girl, so it was really lovely to welcome her as a bride.”
