Cressida Bonas got married during the pandemic and she’s opening up about why her day was “imperfect yet perfect.”
“I had a lockdown wedding. A 30-person, socially-distanced, sanitised church service was organised in under two weeks,” Cressida wrote in an article for The Spectator. “Restrictions meant no hymns, no wind instruments and no speaking too loudly. A disappointment for a musical family. Not what we’d envisaged, but a more intimate and special day than we could ever have imagined. Imperfect yet perfect — a day we will never forget.”
Cressida revealed that her wedding dress was one she wore in a music video!
She said, “Four days before the big day, I marched up and down Oxford Street on the hunt for a wedding dress. Finding nothing, I remembered an old Whistles dress I once wore for a James Arthur music video. I went home and found the dusty frock at the back of my cupboard. After some ironing, it looked good as new.”
Cressida opened up about making her wedding a memorable day despite the limitations from the pandemic.
“We’d talk about the party, the guest list, the cake, people’s expectations, what it should or shouldn’t look like. Having a small portion of Harry’s and my family in the church made it just simply special,” she said. “After the service, swapping heels for trainers, we rode away on horses. At first my horse looked at me nervously. He didn’t seem keen on my dress. Once finally aloft, with hearts full, we rode off into the stormy weather and into our future life.”
Cressida was asked at the beginning of the year to comment on Meghan Markle and you have to see her response.
