Queen Victoria in her wedding clothes, painted by Franz Xaver Winterhalter in 1847, commissioned as an anniversary present to Prince Albert
Queen Victoria chose to wear a white wedding dress when she married Prince Albert in 1840, which was an unusual choice at the time, when colours were used far more often, marking her independent Girl Power spirit from the start! She has been credited with starting the tradition of white weddings and white bridal gowns (although she wasn’t the first royal to be married in white).
In her hair, she wore a wreath of orange blossoms, a symbol of fertilely, instead of a tiara
We have translated these beautiful flowers and leaves into delicate earrings which look lovely for any occasion, day or night and hope you will feel as beautiful in them as she no doubt felt on that day
