Celebrity Wedding Inspiration: Matthew and Camila
Well as of the 9th June 2012, Matthew McConaughey, the naked bongo playing heart throb of Hollywood is now officially a married man. That is right, try as the ridiculously beautiful Brazilian model and television presenter Camila Alves might, she could not “Lose her guy in ten days”, and instead they fell in love, have two beautiful babies and are now husband and wife. When I saw the cover of the magazine, I knew hearts were breaking around the world, but on the bright side, at least we all get an insight into their special day and can use their event as our celebspiration!
The good-looking love birds are famed for their relaxed nature to life and this flowed into their wedding day which was a beach meets Texas theme that lasted over three days! They wed at their home in Austin Texas at sunset; the traditional Catholic ceremony was overseen by a priest and a monk. Their children, Levi and Vida were included in the ceremony as page boy and flower girl, little Levi led his baby sister down the aisle, both bare foot and too adorable.There was no bridal party either! Matthew looked every inch the old-style Hollywood heart throb in his three-piece Dolce & Gabana tuxedo with bow tie. His bride was stunning in a handmade gown by Brazilian designer Ducarmo Castello. A beautiful silver headpiece glistened over her dark locks which had been swept back into a chignon. They both designed their Kathy Rose wedding bands; Camila’s Cathy Waterman engagement ring is a beautiful rose coloured diamond and screams vintage glamour. After their ceremony, Camila switched her gown for a pretty white cocktail frock and she danced the night away with her husband. For their first dance as a married couple, they played Forever and Ever by Randy Travis.
The one hundred (small for Hollywood, I know) guests drank red wine, rum and tequila as they dined outdoors, treated to tasty dishes of sushi, traditional Brazilian churrascaria barbecue and their wedding cake is my ultimate favourite choice for wedding cake – red velvet. The base and middle cakes were iced in their respective flags. Base cake was the Texan flag, the middle cake the Brazilian flag. The top tier was round with blue icing and white stars with “Amen” written on top in red. The reception was true to the couple with a laid-back festival vibe, decorated with candles and a live band entertained the guests as they sat at long wooden tables which were decorated with little potted plants. Luxury tents had been set up on the property for guests to stay in and the wedding guests all walked away with personalised “stubby” coolers, with the newlyweds names and wedding date. So un-Hollywood! Big difference compared to Kim K’s wedding spectacular!
