Back in July, Ellie Goulding’s assistant, Emma, contacted us: Ellie wanted a very traditional wedding and was looking for flower girl dresses and page boy outfits that would nicely complement her pure white Victorian long sleeved dress and very long train. Having chosen French Maison de Couture Chloe to design her bespoke wedding gown and bridesmaid dresses, choosing French royal designer Little Eglantine for her junior bridal party seemed a natural choice.

The Love me like you do singer wanted the children to be chic and elegant. She chose our Gallia dress for her two flower girls, with its delicate puff sleeves and peter pan collar.

She opted for our mandarin cotton shirt, ¾ button shorts and cummerbund for the three boys. After Ellie received our fabric swatches, Hannah Lowe, her best friend and personal assistant, who was one of her bridesmaids, also contributed in helping chose the colours and details for each garment.

All the outfits were made of crisp white taffeta, with a pale blue dupion silk sash and cummerbund, chosen as a gentle reminder of the very pale blue bridesmaid dresses.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

All the team of Little Eglantine wishes the newlyweds a very happy life together.
