Meghan Markle celebrated her first birthday as a royal at a major party–for someone else. She and Prince Harry attended the wedding of his childhood friend, Charlie van Straubenzee, to Daisy Jenks. Prince Harry served as an usher in the wedding, which was infinitely more laid-back than his own. The couple wed at St. Mary the Virgin Church in Frensham, Surrey, and the bride wore…Mira Zwillinger.

If you haven’t heard of Mira Zwillinger, now’s the time. The brand, based in Tel Aviv, is best known for their ethereal embroideries and romantic silhouettes; case in point: Daisy’s appliqué-dotted tulle A-line gown. The bride opted for the brand’s “Gigi” gown for the aisle, and made customized changes to it’s silhouette–like transforming the neckline from a straight, off-the-shoulder bodice to a strapless, sweetheart neckline.
The bodice of the dress is encrusted in cascading three-dimensional floral appliqués, which decrease in size as they scatter throughout its tulle skirt. Jenks purchased the gown from London-based bridal salon, Brown’s Bride, but brides who love it as much as she did can order the approximately $12,540 gown from any of the brand’s dozens of bridal retailers worldwide. She paired the gown with its matching veil, and accessorized the look with a vintage-inspired diamond necklace and, appropriately, a clutch of daisies.

While van Straubenzee and Jenks’ wedding welcomed a guest list jam-packed with royals–Princess Eugenie was also in attendance with her fiancé, Jack Brooksbank–this wedding was far more bohemian and casual than most royal, and royal-adjacent affairs. Meghan donned a sweet, pleated day dress from Club Monaco for the occasion (that surprisingly, is still available for purchase), and the couple left their ceremony on a rickshaw, driven by the groom, after sharing a kiss under the arch of greenery and white blooms that adorned the door of the church.
It’s possible that Daisy’s experience in the wedding industry lead her to her less-formal choices for her wedding day. The bride is a videographer, and per her company website, shoots weddings herself. It appears that her personalized touches, sweet send-off, and her choice of a bridal designer more off-the-beaten path were all nods to her wedding industry know-how.
