Miss Marie Cavallier’s Bridal Gown and Tiara

Miss Marie Cavallier’s Bridal Gown and Tiara

The Wedding of His Royal Highness Prince Joachim and Miss Marie Cavallier on 24 May 2008

The bridal gown is an haute couture creation made of 19th century inspired Calais lace with flower patterns in raised satin stitch. The dress is off-white and lined with ivory silk faille from the silk fabric maker, Buche, in the Loire Valley.

The bodice of the bridal gown consists of finely embroidered lace. The gown ends in a train that is three metres long. The bridal veil is of tulle with lace bordering and is kept in place by a tiara.

The tiara belongs to Her Majesty The Queen. It was a gift from the Queen’s parents, King Frederik and Queen Ingrid. Originally, the tiara belonged to Princess Dagmar (1890-1961), the youngest daughter of Frederik VIII and Queen Louise. In 1922 she married Master of the Royal Hunt Jørgen Castenskiold.

In addition, Miss Marie Cavallier wears a pair of diamond earrings from Genève.

The designers David Arasa and Claudio Morelli from the fashion house Arasa Morelli have designed the bridal gown.
