Meghan Markle's white bridal gown was designed by Givenchy's Clare Waight Keller after months of speculation linking her to other designers, such as Erdem, and moved her groom to tears in the stunning classic creation. Photograph: Ben Birchall/WPA Pool/Getty Images
 

Markle chose Waight Keller for her timeless and elegant aesthetic, impeccable tailoring, and relaxed demeanour and wanted to highlight the success of a leading British talent who has now served as the creative head of three globally influential fashion houses – Pringle of Scotland, Chloé, and now Givenchy.

The gown chosen by Meghan was very reminiscent of an Audrey Hepburn style as opposed to a beaded number. The dress had slim three-quarter sleeves and a boat-shaped neckline. The look was completed by a Cartier bracelet and earrings. Photograph: Andrew Matthews/Reuters

The veil of Meghan’s dress represents the distinctive flora of each Commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral composition. India’s Lotus, Pakistan’s Jasmine and Bangladesh’s White Water Lily were part of Meghan’s five-metres long silk tulle veil which had selection of flora distinctive from every member state of the Commonwealth.
