ANNE HATHAWAY married Adam Shulman in an outdoor sunset ceremony last night. The actress wore a custom-made Valentino bridal gown during the intimate wedding in Big Sur, California.
An estimated 150 guests attended the nuptials, which started on Friday night with a rehearsal dinner at the luxurious Ventana Inn and Spa. The wedding itself took place on a nearby private estate.
Italian designer Valentino Garavani confirmed just last week that he had designed a wedding dress for Hathaway, who he described as “like my daughter”. The off-the-shoulder bridal gown featured intricate lace and embroidery and was paired with a dramatic full-length veil and vintage-inspired headpiece.
“The wedding was lovely and Anne looked gorgeous,” a guest told People. “It was just friends and family. No movie stars. There were only a few people in the business there, like her stunt double.”
According to reports, the couple enlisted the help of Natalie Portman’s wedding planners Yifat Oren and Stefanie Cove to help organise their big day – which, like Portman’s, was also believed to be a traditional Jewish ceremony. The wedding was allegedly inspired by nature, featuring multitudes of branches and over $100,000 (£62,000) worth of flowers – courtesy of The Velvet Garden florist - at both the ceremony and reception. The evening dinner featured an all-vegan menu, while guests were kept entertained with music from US jazz trio Americano Social Club.
The pair confirmed their engagement last November, with Hathaway showcasing a diamond engagement ring designed by Shulman.
