It’s a good day for Nicky Hilton, who married the man of her dreams, James Rothschild, at The Orangery in Kensington Palace on Friday (July 10). The couple, who got engaged in August 2014, said “I do” in a romantic ceremony at the historic London setting.
The beautiful bride stunned in a bespoke Valentino dress, which she proudly showed off as she left Claridge’s hotel, on her way to the venue.
“Ever since I was a little girl I wanted Valentino to design my wedding dress. Valentino is the definition of timeless elegance, I don’t think there’s another couture house like it,” the bride exclusively told Harper’s Bazaar ahead of her big day.
Nicky was closely followed by her older sister Paris Hilton, who wore a long light blue gown. Meanwhile her flower girls looked pretty in dresses from luxury childrenswear designer Marie Chantal.
Close friend Petra Stunt will also be amongst the guests. The couple famously met at Petra’s wedding to James Stunt back in 2011, with Nicky later saying it was love at first sight. James popped the question during a romantic holiday to Lake Como in August, presenting his wife-to-be with an incredible five-carat Asscher cut diamond ring.
The couple’s choice of wedding location couldn’t have been more fitting for their fairy-tale day. Located within Kensington Gardens, The Orangery is licensed for civil weddings and allows for receptions on its terrace. It is also located next door to Prince William and Kate’s apartment.
The new Mr and Mrs Rothschild are expected to keep the party going late into the night with a rumoured performance from Lionel Richie before Paris takes over the decks with a DJ set at the end of the night.
