Soooo, you’re the heir to the Swarovski fortune. How do you celebrate your wedding? The answer, as Victoria Swarovski showed over the weekend, is by showing off a HELL of a lot of gems!
A singer by day (as Victoria S, she sang the German version of the theme song to The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader, which was sung by Joe McElderry in the UK, and in 2016, she won the German version of Dancing With The Stars) Victoria, 23, married her boyfriend of six years, property investor Werner Mürz.
The couple met in 2010 when Victoria was 17 – her husband is thought to now be in his 40s – and got engaged last May.
They kicked off their wedding weekend, held in Trieste, Italy, on Thursday night with a red and white-themed “pasta and love” dinner, before the main event in front of 250 friends and family at the Cathedral of San Giusto.
Victoria wore a glamorous crystal-embellished red dress for her first party, designed by Dubai-based designer Michael Cino, who has created gowns for Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna and Lady Gaga.
And the party REALLY got under way!
For the ceremony on Friday, Victoria wore a 46kg wedding dress that she designed with Cinco, and which is thought to have cost more than £700,000 and came embellished with 500,000 Swarovski crystals and a veil and six-metre train, which she wore with Jimmy Choo heels.
The reception was decorated with herb trees shaped like hearts, and more Swarovski crystals, before guests got down to the crucial matter of dinner.
There was a five-tier wedding cake and a spectacular firework display before guests got their dancing shoes on.
Victoria changed into a strapless white gown for the party, and treated her guests to a song – because hey, when you’ve got a record contract, why wouldn’t you? Now that’s sparkle.
The event wrapped up with a farewell brunch on Saturday – glamorous AND delicious.
