Queen Elizabeth II was not only the longest reigning monarch in British history, she was also a loved and respected figured globally. 🤍 👸🏻 ✨

The Fashions by Farina team took some time reminisce on the spectacular Norman Hartnell gown the ever-stylish royal wore on her wedding day in Greece, November 20th of 1947.

The stunning garment has a truly remarkable story behind it. While many brides these days order their dresses nine months to a year or more in advance, Princess Elizabeth’s gown wasn’t even started until just 3 months out.

One detail that stands out on Princess Elizabeth’s truly spectacular wedding gown and elaborate veil was the decadent pearl florals. 🌸

Design Norman Hartnell’s signature was said to be embroidery. The ensemble is covered in an astonishing 10,000 seed pearls imported from America. All were hand-sewn to create this stunning floral pattern. It took the hard work of 350 women to pull off creating the intricately detailed piece in such a short timeframe. All involved were sworn to secrecy to protect any details about Princess Elizabeth’s special day from leaking to the press. ✨ 💎
