Elizabeth Hurley’s wedding to Arun Nayar earlier this year was one of those celebrity weddings we’ve all become very familiar with lately. You know the kind I mean: the wedding goes on for days on end, usually includes at least two ceremonies, and is the subject of intense speculation in the press, with the photos normally selling for more than most of us spend on our entire weddings – and then some.
So it was for Elizabeth and Arun. Their first ceremony took place at Sudley Castle, in Gloucestershire, with Sir Elton John walking Liz down the aisle, and continued with Hindu ceremonies held in Mumbai and Jodhpur, India. Because of the multiple ceremonies, Elizabeth naturally found herself in need of multiple wedding dresses, with the most photographed one being this swan-like gown by Donatella Versace. For the Indian ceremonies, Hurley choose couture sari’s, also designed by Donatella, and had her hands and feet painted with traditional henna designs.
