When rumours started to circulate that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter would marry before their baby is born, there was only one thing on our minds. What would the pregnant bride wear?!
Well, 2 months after the couple’s Valentine’s Day wedding on the Isle of Wight, a picture of Sophie’s wedding dress has finally emerged – and we have to say, she looks absolutely amazing.
Taken before the secret wedding, the Instagram pic, shot by renowned celeb photographer Annie Leibovitz and shared by Valentino, shows Sophie, 37, wearing a one-of-a-kind maternity bridal gown.
The pale silver dress, embroidered with vines and pomegranates has a high-waisted, medieval look. The dress features a high neck and long sleeves, and skims beautifully over Sophie’s 2nd trimester baby bump.
“It feels very much of nature,” Sophie told Vogue magazine, “and it’s so detailed and extraordinary that I’m still trying to get my head around how beautiful it is.”
Valentino’s post was captioned: “Beautiful Sophie Hunter with Creative Directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli prepping her couture dress for her wedding to Benedict Cumberbatch. #magicmoment #sophiehunter #benedictcumberbatch photographed by #AnnieLeibovitz.”
