||It was inevitable that Mary's medieval-inspired wedding gown by Danish designer Uffe Frank would spark a slew of copycat gowns. After all, what bride wouldn't like to look like a picture-perfect princess on her wedding day?
Style-savvy Mary worked closely with designer Uffe to come up with the design of the once-in-a-lifetime gown. Flattering to her slim silhouette, the dress, of ivory duchess satin, featured lily-shaped sleeves, a dramatic, almost off-the-shoulder neckline and panels opening out from the waist to reveal 100-year-old lace.
And there was, naturally, a nod to Mary’s Australian homeland in the ensemble. Her unusual trailing bouquet featured crooked-leaved Australian eucalyptus – known as Snow gum – among other blooms taken from the palace gardens.
