Olivia Henson Drew Inspiration From Princess Kate's Bridal Look

Olivia Henson looked stunning as she exchanged vows with the Duke of Westminster in a lavish wedding ceremony at Chester Cathedral on Friday.

The 31-year-old account manager dazzled guests in a vintage-style silk wedding gown by British designer Emma Victoria Payne, also known as EVP. The gown featured a bias-cut skirt, gathered sleeves, hand-appliquéd embroidery, and a two-metre train.

Olivia completed her bridal ensemble with a water veil secured with the Fabergé Myrtle Leaf Tiara, a traditional accessory worn by Grosvenor brides since 1906.

Like many brides, she wore her hair in an intricate and elegant updo, styled with a side parting and a chic chignon at the nape of her neck, which helped to secure her veil—a practical choice for the windy day in Cheshire.

It has since been revealed that Olivia’s hairstylist was Cristiano Basciu, the Artistic Director at Richard Ward Hair. The royal-approved salon is known to be a favorite of Sophie Wessex, and Richard himself is renowned for Princess Kate’s famous bouncy blow-dries.

Taking to Instagram, salon director Richard and his wife Helen posted: “We are immensely proud of our exceptionally talented Artistic Director, Cristiano, for his incredible work creating the stunning hairstyles for the wedding of the Duke of Westminster and Olivia Henson.

“His outstanding work, featured in renowned publications such as British Vogue, Tatler, and many others, showcase his artistic ability. Cristiano’s attention to detail and creative vision have once again set a new standard in bridal hairstyling, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to celebrate his achievements. Richard & Hellen Xx”.

“Soft, loose curls are handy for outdoor engagements because they hold up well against the weather if it takes a windy turn,” Richard told the MailOnline in 2023. “If you’re being blown about a bit they will just look beachy and natural as they brush against your face, which can be very flattering.”

Richard Ward is the man behind Princess Kate’s blow drys, including her bridal hair style on her wedding day in 2011

Long, flowing curls are reportedly the preferred hairstyle of both Kate and William. Richard was specifically instructed that Olivia’s husband must be able to recognize her when she reaches the altar.

Known for her relaxed beauty approach, Olivia looked absolutely radiant on Friday, complementing her hair with minimal, fresh-faced makeup — a truly stunning bride.
