This Bride Wed in a Civil Ceremony, Then Took Our Breath Away in a Royal Wedding Gown

Prince Ernst of Hanover and designer Ekaterina Malysheva wed quietly in a civil ceremony on Thursday, but that was just the beginning. Following the city hall wedding, the bride and groom celebrated with a royal wedding — and Ekaterina had the dress to prove it.

The Russian designer behind the label Ekat gave us Kate Middleton vibes in a long-sleeved lace gown with a mile-long train and an embroidered veil. It's easy to see the similarities between Ekaterina's look and the duchess's dress silhouette, though there's one striking difference. Look closely at the dress and you'll notice pearl embellishments throughout, giving all-over sparkle with breathtaking effects. The finishing touch on this royal wedding look? A shimmering tiara, naturally.
