Nicole Trunfio

Australian model Nicole Trunfio wed Texan musician Gary Clark Jr. in 2016, and while we saw her gown following the stunning Palm Springs ceremony, the star shared an even closer glimpse to Instagram. Trunfio even shared the reasoning behind her one flower bouquet. 

She wrote, “on my way to walk down the aisle……in my dream dress. I went with 1 single rose, with the thorns and the leaves still on it, a non-traditional choice, but I needed to follow my heart (have you ever seen anyone choose 1 flower instead of a bouquet?) everyone was trying to convince me to take the large bouquet that had been made for me, but I felt like the single rose, was unexpected, undone, imperfect, raw and multilayered, effortless, and had more meaning and symbolism to me than a made-up bouquet which felt contrived…….. the single rose also felt more “Italian” @dolcegabbana vibes 🥀 it gave me “La Dolce Vita” vibes, all I needed was a 🌶 to put in my garter 😂.”

The bride wore a Steven Khalil with Sophie Webster shoes. The couple now shares three children – Zion, Gia and Ella. 

Jesinta Franklin 

Back in November 2016, Jesinta Franklin (née Campbell) and AFL star Lance Franklin wed in a fairytale-worthy ceremony held in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales. For her nuptials, Jesinta wore not one but two custom-made gowns designed by Vera Wang, a fitted mermaid-style gown as well as a romantic corseted tulle gown. The tulle gown alone is said to be worth an estimated $20,000.

Miranda Kerr

Miranda Kerr wed Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel in 2017 and has since shared many stunning pictures of her incredible custom-made Dior gown. The Kora Organics founder says she was inspired by Grace Kelly’s iconic dress at her 1956 wedding to Prince Rainier of Monaco. Dior’s artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri Kerr was entrusted with her dream dress: a long-sleeved, high-necked satin gown with appliquéd lilies and matching headpiece. 

While there was no bridal party – and less than 50 guests – Kerr’s 8-year-old son Flynn from her previous relationship with Orlando Bloom was there by his mum’s side as ring bearer. Kerr and Spiegel now have two sons, Hart and Myles. 

Jennifer Hawkins

Australian model Jennifer Hawkins wed longtime partner Jake Wall in a lavish Bali ceremony in 2013. Designer Toni Maticevski was behind the traditional, strapless gown. “Choosing the gown was was probably the hardest thing,” Hawkins said at the time. “I changed my mind about a million times.”

Nicole Warne Shadbolt

Nicole Warne (@garypeppergirl) and photographer Luke Shadbolt wed after 11-years together. The couple tied the knot with an intimate ceremony in picturesque Rippon Hall in Lake Wanaka, New Zealand. The bride wore 5 couture ensembles over her wedding weekend, opting for a custom lace Valentino gown with an ab-baring cut-out and veil for the wedding ceremony itself.

For the reception, she wore a custom white velvet Oscar de la Renta dress, then a white satin dress by Dion Lee for the after-party. The Oscar de la Renta dress was a recreation of Brie Larson’s 2017 Academy Awards black velvet gown. She also wore a custom pant look by Maticevski to the welcome drinks the night before and a custom Michael Lo Sordo dress to the Hamptons-themed recovery brunch.

The couple, who met on the 2013 season of the reality TV show, announced in May 2020 that they were expecting their first child. “With everything that’s going on in the world we feel incredibly lucky and grateful to be starting a family together, and we’re so looking forward to this next chapter in our lives. #BabyRobardsComingSoon @mrtimrobards,” the star wrote.

Lisa Oraglassio

Lisa Oraglassio and Logan Huffman wed in a lavish ceremony in 2018. “This past weekend I got to marry the man of my dreams,” The Veronicas star wrote at the time. “In the dress of my dreams. For my wedding dress I wanted to embody the romance period of the Victorian era, yet still have the forward graces of the 30s and 40s. Inspired by my heritage from the old countries, my French & Italian ancestries played a big part in choosing the fabrics and intricate details of my veil and accessories.”

Orgalssio’s dream dress was created by Melbourne-based designer J’Aton.
