Britney Spears and Sam Asghari said yes. And it was a real Cinderella wedding – with everything that entails. Only the choice of the wedding dress was surprising.
A sea of peonies, a fairytale carriage and a white horse with golden hooves – this is how Britney Spears celebrated her marriage to Sam Asghari at her estate in Thousand Oaks. On June 9, the couple walked down the aisle. Now the singer has shared footage of her fairytale wedding on Instagram.
Despite the Disney backdrop, the bride didn’t show up in a glittering tulle and glitter ball gown. Instead, she wrapped herself in a fitted dress with a hip slit and open shoulders. A metre-long train was a must, as was a veil that was just as long.
Britney Spears wears Donatella Versace dress to wedding
The robe was designed by none other than Donatella Versace. Sam Asghari also appeared in a classic outfit: black suit, black bow tie and white shirt.
To plan their wedding, the couple sat down with celebrity event planner Jeffrey Best. “We really wanted to make this a small and beautiful moment with family and friends,” Britney tells US Vogue. “We wanted warm and feminine colors like blush, white, cream and gold as well as many different shades of pink and red.”
The ceremony itself took place in a pink-lit tent, adorned with chandeliers and even more flowers. The number of guests was manageable, but a handful of celebrities turned up. Madonna, Paris Hilton, Drew Barrymore, Selena Gomez and star designer Donatella Versace. The hotel heiress’ mother, Kathy Hilton, was also on the guest list.
There doesn’t seem to have been a dress code: Paris Hilton came in all black, Madonna in a colorful patterned floral dress, Selena Gomez in a blue suit.
Spears herself eventually swapped her elegant gown for an ultra-short black blazer dress and twirled the dancefloor late into the night.
Charlotte and Sofia Tilbury create bridal look
Charlotte and Sofia Tilbury were responsible for the bride’s make-up: “I was so thrilled and honored when I was asked to design Britney’s bridal look!” Charlotte told Vogue. “Britney is an icon of our time who has inspired and empowered us all with her joy and positive energy. She is such a natural beauty and has the most captivating big brown eyes.” Tilbury’s niece Sofia was there on the day to bring the look to life.
While numerous stars witnessed the wedding, only her brother Bryan, 45, came from the Spears family, reports “Page Six”. Neither the parents nor the sister of the singer were present. Neither did her two sons. Attorney Kevin Federline, the children’s father and Spears’ ex-husband, told TMZ: “Although the boys will not be there, Kevin and the boys are very happy for Britney and wish her and Sam all the best in the future “.
