Brides have never looked so glam

Back in June 1981, ahead of the Royal Wedding in London, Hong Kong Tatler styled a weddings shoot featuring the designs of Sandra Rhodes, Nadia Lavalle, Benny Ong, Gina Fratini, Catherine Buckley and Caroline Charles.

The result is a glorious eight-page spread of lace, gold sheaths and capes, and ruffles galore—not to mention, big, BIG hair.
