UPDATE

Pop Sugar — Gwen Stefani wore a white-and-pink gown for her London nuptials to Gavin Rossdale in September 2002.

New photos of Gwen’s wedding dress being featured in the new White Weddings exhibit in Australia have shown up online, and it’s gorgeous! It’s on display now until November 6 at the Bendigo Art Gallery in Victoria. We hope some of you are able to see it in person!

The Hoopla — Traditionally brides wear white, but of course rocker and style icon Gwen Stefani and burlesque queen Dita Von Teese were never going to obey that rule.

Their truly breathtaking gowns make up part of the collection now on show at the Bendigo Art Gallery: “The White Wedding Dress: 200 years of Wedding Fashions”.

Singer Gwen Stefani married Gavin Rossdale September 14, 2002 at St Paul’s Church in London. The couple exchanged traditional Anglican vows in front of 150 family and friends. Stefani was chauffeured to the church in a blue 1970s Rolls-Royce, making a dramatic entrance to the ceremony approximately one hour late.

She wore a custom-made pink and white silk faille wedding dress by John Galliano for Dior, with an antique lace veil also designed by John Galliano. Her eight bridesmaids wore bias-cut silk dresses by Dior.

The bride walked down the aisle on the arm of her father, Dennis, carrying a bouquet of phalaenopsis orchids, rosary beads and her grandmother’s Catholic prayer book. The groom wore a traditional British morning suit and was escorted by his Hungarian sheepdog, Winston, who donned a garland of red flowers.

The couple are still married. Rossdale has a daughter, Daisy, from a previous marriage and now have two sons together – Kingston and Zuma.
