Kate Moss inspired to wed by Gypsy Weddings
Thursday 11 August 2011
Kate Moss' wedding was inspired by gypsies.
The 37-year-old supermodel tied the knot with long-term boyfriend Jamie Hince last month and admits her nuptials were heavily influenced by her favourite TV show, British reality series 'Big Fat Gypsy Weddings', which showcased the lavish weddings of the travelling community.
She told the September edition of Vogue magazine: "I am so romantic about gypsies.
"You can't believe the dresses. They're like blinging butterflies times ten; they can't move down the aisle! It's so genius."
Kate - who tied the knot in front of 138 guests at St. Peter's Church in Southrop, the Cotswolds, South West England - had 16 bridesmaids, a carnival tent and tepees to entertain children at the reception, specially-made cocktails called Kate 76 made with vodka, champagne, crushed ice and sugar and has revealed the party afterwards was heavily influenced by F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic 1920s tale 'The Great Gatsby'.
She said: "The details are intense. I've gone mental. I wanted it to be kind of dreamy and 1920s, when everything is soft-focus. That light and that kind of fun decadence. It's rock-'n'-roll Great Gatsby!"
Kate's dress was designed by her friend John Galliano, who admitted creating the stunning gown was "creative rehab" following the uproar that followed his alleged anti-Semitic comments earlier this year.
He said: "She dared me to be John Galliano again. I couldn't pick up a pencil. It's been my creative rehab."
