Hearts all around the world broke when it was revealed that actor Benedict Cumberbatch married Sophie Hunter. The only thing to soothe our aching hearts is the fact that Hunter wore an incredible wedding gown.
Sophie Hunter’s wedding dress was a one-of-a-kind Valentino. The 37-year-old opted for a silver number, which had long sleeves, a high neckline and a high waist. While it was very untraditional, it was very romantic.
Maison Valentino featured a photo, which was shot by Annie Liebowitz for Vogue, on his Instagram account. He captioned the photo, “Beautiful Sophie Hunter with Creative Directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli prepping her couture dress for her March wedding to Benedict Cumberbatch.”
Hunter was supposedly so smitten with the design, it was hard for her to believe it was her wedding dress. “It seemed to encapsulate everything I’d been speaking about,” she said. “It feels very much of nature, and it’s so detailed and extraordinary that I’m still trying to get my head around how beautiful it is.”
She topped off the incredible look with a matching silk cape, and a baby bump, which was barely visible in the gown.
She joins the likes of Courtney Cox, Elizabeth Taylor and many other celebrity brides who wore Valentino on their big day!
