French Fairytale Wedding
I can finally dish about an amazing fairytale wedding I got to do last month when I was off the grid for a few days. Katya Virshilas and Klaus Kongsdal are darling friends and they bid their “I Do’s” in a Castle outside of Paris.
Katya has just finished three seasons on Strictly Come Dancing for my North America friends that is Dancing with the Stars UK (and you might also recognize her as Antonio Banderas‘ dance partner in the hot tango in Take the Lead). And Klaus is also Dancing with the Stars Alumni from Denmark.
A French fairytale wedding at Chateau de Chissay is exactly what you’d expect of ballroom dancers. Even the minister started the wedding by saying: Welcome ladies, gentlemen, and ballroom dancers. The guests included many of the dancers from Strictly.
The ceremony happened in a cave that felt like out of a romantic scene in Robin Hood. And after the nuptials we all gathered in the courtyard for the champagne tower, gypsy band and rose filled pond. The smell of the fresh roasted herbs for the cocktails set the atmosphere.
Other than the bride – the bridal party dresses were all made by one of our faves – London based JAIDA HAY. And Katya’s dress! I don’t need to gush – just look at the pics. Klaus was dapper on his own in a little Tom Ford. But seriously it’s his contagious smile that rivals Katya’s dress.
