The Royal Wedding of the decade and perhaps indeed, the century, has just been announced and we are all desperate to find out what Kate will be wearing on the big day and how the couple will choose to stamp their personal style on the whole affair. Hot off the press, 5 Star Weddings spoke to top UK wedding planner, Mark Niemierko,to find out exactly what he anticipates William and Kate’s wedding to be like….
Mark Niemierko: I’d love her to wear something fitting, yet with a bit of a kick in the skirt… she’s a fab figure and it needs to be shown off. For sure it’ll be elegant and timeless, yet with a modern fashion twist. She’s a fashion savvy lady. I’d love to see her in a British Designers dress such as Bruce Oldfield, Jasper Conran or Jenny Packham.
5 Star Weddings: What style of wedding do you anticipate in terms of flowers, cake, bridesmaids etc?
Mark Niemierko: The ceremony will be the main event and I’m sure we’ll see the venue, Westminster Abbey perhaps, decked out in flowers. I’d imagine as it’s a summer wedding they’ll choose rather traditional colours of whites and greens but perhaps a hint of blush pink!
5 Star Weddings: Will this be a typically royal wedding like William’s parents?
Mark Niemierko: It’s the wedding of the Future King of England. There’s no doubt it’ll be a big state affair, if not an international event with people watching in their millions. I think there will be all the tradition of the pomp and ceremony you’d imagine, but there will be modern touches which showcase Kate and William’s personalities.
5 Star Weddings: What designers do you anticpate the wedding party to use? ie Kate’s mum and sister?
Mark Niemierko: I’d love to see Stewart Parvin dress Kate’s mum. He designs for the Queen.
5 Star Weddings: Where do you think Kate and William will take their honeymoon?
Mark Niemierko: I’d imagine a safari will be out of the question as they got engaged in Kenya. Perhaps another commonwealth country such as Australia for some sun after what I’m sure will be rather intense wedding planning.
Other comments. Would love to see Prince Harry as best man.
