Ellie Goulding and Caspar Jopling celebrate one-year anniversary

It’s been a year since songstress Ellie Goulding and Caspar Jopling tied the knot in one of Britain’s most lavish non-royal weddings to date.

The private pair married on August 31, 2019 with a grand affair fit for royalty. A-list guests who attended include Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, Ed Sheeran and Sienna Miller.

They exchanged vows at the York Minster Cathedral in England and held their reception at Castle Howard, a stately home a few miles away. In true Ellie style, she opted for not one but 5 show-stopping wedding looks, paving the way for ‘royal’ wedding trends to come.

Her ceremony look consisted of a bespoke Chloé gown and a delicate silk tulle veil with an organza collar – featuring her and Caspar’s initials. The veil reportedly took 591 hours to make. The dress itself wasn’t shy of detail either – complete with hand-embroidered White Roses of York and subtle white glass bead embellishments, which took a further 640 hours to create.

I spoke to @britishvogue about my wedding dress, and this is what I said 😊 “I was so thrilled and excited when I found out that the iconic and unparalleled Chloe wanted to design a bespoke wedding dress for me. I have loved them and their incredible team for years, so it only seemed right for Chloe to play big part of this special day. From day one they worked along side me to design, from head to toe, something timeless and classic, but with the all the Chloe opulence and spirit. Natasha was the perfect collaborator. I have never felt more special than the moment I first tried the dress on in Paris, and it was utterly awe inspiring to see the craftsmanship and attention to detail (I had C and E in the lace on veil, and the Yorkshire rose) they understood my longing for a very traditional dress 👗 Actually I could never thank you enough my dear people at @chloe , especially @nramsaylevi and @arnaudcauchois and to the lovely @juliahobbs_ . 💘

Fans speculate that the couple met through their mutual friend, Princess Eugenie. The English singer-songwriter has been engaged to the art dealer since August 2018. Caspar announced the engagement on Instagram.

The pair are currently living apart as Goulding works on her upcoming album and Jopling continues his Masters degree at Oxford University.
