Heiress To Swarovski Crystal Empire Ties The Knot

Every inch the glamorous & sparkling affair you’d expect!


Gemstone heiress and singer, Victoria Swarovski, married property investor Werner Mürz in Trieste, Italy at the weekend, and naturally it was a dazzling affair.

The 23 year-old who is the heir to the glittering Swarovski Crystal business empire, married Werner Mürz, thought to be in his 40’s, in an intimate ceremony at the Cathedral of San Giusto in front of 250 of their closest friends and family.

The lavish Italian wedding featured a show-stopping three-day bash, with the luxurious weekend being kicked off on Thursday with a welcome dinner at the Piazetta at the Falisia Resort and Spa, where the theme was ‘pasta and love’ with a red and white colour decor theme and dress code for the guests. The first dress worn by the bride was a fabulous red gown by Michael Cinco, a Dubai-based designer to the stars who celebrity clients include the likes of Beyonce, Rhianna and Jennifer Lopez. It was a daring but stunning number, that set the precedent for what was to come…

 

The Friday- which was the day of the wedding ceremony- was followed by a reception at the five-star luxury resort of Falisia in Portopiccolo where the tables where surrounded by heart-shaped herb trees as part of the wedding decor. The venue was of course also decorated in the family’s gemstone’s, designed by event stylist Sabine Königsberger.


For the main event, Victoria stunned in a custom-made and self-designed gown also by Cinco, The dress was reportedly embellished with 500,000 of her family’s Swarovski crystals, cascading out into the magnificent train, weighed in at 46kg and cost a staggering £700,000! Talk about Bling….

The dress, which was a stunning tulle and lace creation with laser-cut flowers, was complete with an eight-metre veil and designer heels by the infamous Jimmy Choo. She later changed into a strapless ivory gown for the cutting of the cake and the first dance.

Victoria, who is a singer by day provided some entertainment for the evening and sang the soundtrack to The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader. She treated guests to a few well-known tunes, because why wouldn’t you when you have a Sony record deal?! The couple then finished the evening with a five-tier wedding cake and a spectacular fireworks display.

The New Mr & Mrs Wurtz also hosted a farewell brunch the day after their nuptials at The Beach Club in
Portopiccolo as one final wedding celebration. The newlyweds are now enjoying a luxury honeymoon around France, with the heiress keeping Instagram followers up-to-date with her lavish lifestyle- lounging on yachts and shopping at Dior in St.Tropez- Oh the insta-envy!
