A look fit for a princess: Tatiana wows guests at fairytale ceremony

26 AUGUST 2010

A ravishing blonde in the mould of Grace Kelly, Prince Nikolaos of Greece's wife Tatiana didn't need much to look special.

But her gown, a traditional yet sophisticated design from New York-based Venezuelan maestro Angel Sanchez, transformed her into a truly radiant bride, drawing gasps from onlookers as she arrived by horse-drawn carriage.

Created from 40 metres of French Chantilly lace, the strapless dress featured a moulded bodice that showed off her slender waist, before falling to her feet and finishing in a sweeping train.

Luckily, the designer was on hand personally to help her down and arrange her full-length veil.

Covering her shoulders was a bolero in the same material that she took off for the reception.

Her honey blonde locks had been fashioned into elaborate coils at the nape of her neck.

The chic hairdo set off a tiara she'd been lent by her mother-in-law, Queen Anne-Marie.

A family heirloom, the magnificent headpiece was also worn by Crown Prince Pavlov's wife Marie-Chantal at their 1995 wedding.

It started life as a brooch that belonged to Queen Victoria of Sweden's daughter Ingrid, who married into the Danish royal family in 1935.

Queen Ingrid then bequeathed the piece to her daughter Anne-Marie.

Completing the fairytale look was a pair of diamond drop earrings.

With such eye-catching jewellery, Tatiana wisely kept her make-up simple and accessorised with that unmistakeable sign of a newlywed – a dazzling smile.
