According to the Daily Mail newspaper, the original date of the wedding was June 2, but they decided to move it back one day because their wedding coincided with the wedding of Prince Albert of Monaco and Charlene Wittstock.
The religious ceremony took place in Saint Peter Church, a simple 12th century chapel situated in Southrop, Gloucestershire – a small town in England. The bride, who arrived at four o’clock in a Rolls Royce and was accompanied by her father Peter and her daughter Lila Gracey, wore a beautiful white wedding dress designed by John Galliano, who is a close friend of Moss. The 37-years-old model wanted to encourage Galliano with this gesture, because it just so happens that Galliano had to appear before judges accused of antisemitism on the same day as the top model’s weeding.
Kate decided to wear her hair down and messy with a short and embroidered bridal veil. Meanwhile, the groom was faithful to his retro style and had chosen a light blue suit with a striped shirt, a silk neckerchief instead of a tie and a double-breasted jacket; his entire outfir was designed by Stefano Pilati from Yves Sant Laurent.
Bridesmaids were Charlotte Moss, the sister of Kate Moss; Ella Richards, the daughter of the rockstar Keith Richards and Jess Hallet, Moss’ agent. There were more than 400 wedding guests and among the coveted guest list you could find famous celebrities like Naomi Campbell, who was also in the Monaco Prince Albert wedding the previous day, Vivienne Westwood, sir Philip Green, Tracey Emin, Stella and May McCartney and Jude Law.
Despite the religious ceremony being a quite simple and traditional affair, the wedding reception was an extravagant display of luxury, eccentricity and glamour (the estimated cost of the wedding is put at over £1 million). The party was in the garden of the model’s mansion where they had set up several marquees in order to cover all the guest. A group of drag queens helped guests find the toilets and an army of muscular men, who wore fake tattoos with the names of the newlyweds, walked around the marquees. Among this welcome committee were also trapeze artists and a lot of rock and roll.
The wedding reception continued until June 3. After three days of nonstop party, the model and his new husband left the wedding by helicopter and went to the airport to embark on their romantic honeymoon.
