The blushing bride: Sophie Ferguson Jones.

I knew that when my partner in crime, fellow Grazia Fashion Ed. Sophie Ferguson Jones married her long time love of ten years Charlie Baillie, that it would be a spectacularly stylish affair, but to say their wedding in Mijas, Spain last month surpassed my expectations is an understatement!
Set in the stunning mountains of southern Spain, Charlie and Sophie married at the Mijas cathedral at 4.30pm, before festivities, which were held at the Ferguson Jones’ idillic family house, carried on until the wee hours...
The bride wore a breathtaking Rosa Clara gown, complete with a delicate lace bodice and gorgeous dramatic bow detail. Sophie’s dress and traditional Spanish veil set the tone for a wedding that could of taken place in ’50s Sicily... in other words it was fabulously God Father! Complementing Sophie perfectly was groom Charlie’s blue suit by The Kooples, which matched all ten of his sleek ushers... the height mafioso marvelousness.
To all her friends, Grazia posse included, Sophie is one of- if not the most stylish person we know, so it was a given that her wedding guests would dress accordingly, and bathed in glorious Spanish sunshine everyone truly stepped-up to the mark.
Sophie and Charlie’s wedding was the most magical day; and as luck would have it, fashion photographer Phill Taylor was also in attendance, his camera in tow... Here’s a peak at the very special day through his lens, with HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Mr. & Mrs. B! 

The beautiful order of service and my Spanish fan- the ushers handed out to all the women.

I can honestly say I've never seen anyone look so beautiful: Sophie walks down the aisle on her father's arm.
