When a reality personality marries a footballer, it will never be an understated affair.
So when Love Island star Olivia Attwood tied the knot with her footballer beau Bradley Dack at the weekend, the 25,000 flowers on display at London's five-star Bulgari hotel was perhaps to be expected. Her big day followed a funeral-themed hen party, intended as a humorous farewell "to the girlfriend era".
However, it might come as a surprise to learn that the 32-year-old TV personality chose to wear a dress created by an Israeli designer and opted for a wedding cake from a luxury dessert maker specialising in kosher treats.
Attwood's £30,000 Galia Lahav gown – one of two outfits she donned for the occasion – featured a low neckline, with a long veil topping off the off-the-shoulder number.
Galia Lahav, a fashion label established in Telv Aviv in 1984, is known for its bridal and evening wear.
The designer herself was born in Pinsk, Belarus, before emigrating in 1957 with her family to Israel, where she grew up in the city of Ashkelon.
Bar Refaeli wore the luxury label while hosting the Eurovision Song Contest final in Israel in 2019, while Simone Biles and Beyoncé have walked down the aisle in their own Lahav numbers.
After the ceremony, Attwood and Dack, 29, cut into their £10,000 eight-tier wedding cake, by cake designer GC Couture.
The business has ten years of experience in the luxury cake market and is the preferred kosher cake supplier to luxury venues including the Savoy and the Mayfair Hotel.
Currently it offers a range of kosher and dairy-free cakes at Selfridges and “have recently opened a dedicated kosher production kitchen”.
The couple's wedding was three years in the making, as the pandemic delayed their original plans.
Olivia previously told OK! Magazine: "I'm really pleased as I designed [the dress] three years ago, and my fear was that I'd see someone using a similar fabric. I would have been so gutted. But I can confidently say I haven't seen anyone with a dress similar."
