British fashion designer Jenny Packham creates gorgeous gowns — their long chiffon trains sweep the floor, and they feature ornate details that would make any woman feel like a princess. In fact, Jenny frequently dresses Duchess Kate Middleton for her formal events. But what did Jenny select for her own wedding day? A dove gray lace midi that's not at all what you'd expect.
The three-quarter-sleeved high-neck number was perfectly elegant, and it fit Jenny like a glove, rather than flowing out into a full skirt like so many of her ballgowns. Jenny's bridal look was complete with feminine, slightly unexpected touches, like a beaded veil that complemented drop gemstone earrings, a simple gold watch, and metallic peep-toe heels.
While her ensemble was understated and demure, Jenny still managed to take our breath away as she married her partner Matthew Anderson, who cofounded her label. Read on to get a full look at Jenny's gorgeous wedding dress, which she designed herself, and then shop similar styles. Whether or not you're about to walk down the aisle, there's no denying you could use a ladylike number like this one in your closet.
