Sophie Hunter, the beautiful new Mrs Benedict Cumberbatch has finally revealed her stunning one-of-a-kind Valentino couture maternity wedding dress!
Until now, the couple have kept details of their private Valentine’s Day wedding on the Isle of Wight to themselves, but Sophie’s gown was simply too stunning not to share!
The show stopping couture gown with sheer long sleeves and a chic high neckline was designed by Sophie herself, with the help of Valentino designers Pierpaulo Piccioli & Maria Grazia Chuiri. The ethereal silver lace is woven through with pomegranates and vine leaves, and drapes in the perfect high-waisted a-line cut to hint at her early pregnancy.
When you’re married to Sherlock, you’re likely to spend a lot of time in the spotlight, and Sophie has adjusted to her new-found fame with true grace and poise. Now a little further on with her first pregnancy, we have loved watching Sophie’s maternity style develop. Directly after the wedding, the couple flew straight back to LA, where they walked the red carpets at award season, and Sophie looked effortlessly glamorous in our Silk Printed Maternity Maxi Dress!
Sophie is proof (as if any were needed) that a blossoming expectant bride can make a show stopping entrance on her wedding day – all it takes is the perfect maternity wedding dress! Luckily for those of us who may not be granted a private appointment at Valentino, there are plenty of stylish options out there. If you are tying the knot soon, why not channel Sophie’s empire-waisted silvery style in our Mist Grey Embellished Grecian Maternity Gown, or explore the rest of our stunning selection of maternity wedding dresses & gowns – you may just find “the one”!
Congratulations Sophie – you make a breathtaking bride!
