Royal Brides -  Queen Victoria

Queen Victoria's lavish bridal gown befitted her status as the head of an Empire.

An ivory silk dress trimmed with scalloped lace around the neckline and three-quarter sleeves. The skirt and train have gold braid trimming and the bottom half of the skirt is covered in lace. The centre of the bodice is trimmed with a blue crystal brooch and white rosebuds.

Queen Victoria wears a chain of 'pearls' and crystals with a red rhinestone at the centre and a diamante 'diamond' necklace.
