'Harry Potter' star Bonnie Wright got married in a 100-year-old wedding dress that was completely see-through when she first tried it on
Bonnie Wright revealed new details of her 2022 wedding to Brides.
She told the outlet she wore a 100-year-old vintage dress to her California wedding.
The gown was completely sheer when Wright first tried it on.
"Harry Potter" actor Bonnie Wright revealed new details about her 2022 wedding to Andrew Lococo in an interview with Brides' Shelby Wax.
Wright, 32, and Lococo, 40, have been together since 2018, when they met through a mutual friend at a party, Brides reported.
They got engaged in September 2021, tapping Wright's parents Gary Wright and Sheila Teague to design her ring, as they own the jewelry company Wright & Teague together.
Wright and Lococo set their wedding date for six months later on March 19, 2022, and as Wright told Wax, they wanted sustainability to be a priority at the nuptials planned by Abby and Caroline Events.
"It was important to reflect our love for the environment and use sustainable materials instead of any single-use packaging, lean into our creativity and make things ourselves, and source everything as locally and seasonally as possible," Wright told Wax of their approach to the day.
They chose a regenerative and organic farm, The Ecology Center, in San Juan Capistrano, California, for their venue, and Wright kept sustainability in mind when selecting her wedding dress.
"I knew I wanted to wear a vintage dress. There are so many beautiful dresses already out in the world full of character and story," Wright said to Wax. She went to the vintage bridal salon Happy Isles in Los Angeles to find the perfect dress for her.
"It only took two visits to the salon and I found my dress," Wright told Wax for Brides. "It was surreal at first actually making the official decision, but it felt so right and easy!"
Wright's form-fitting dress had flutter sleeves, a V-neckline, ruffles of fabric on the skirt, and delicate embellishments all over the gown, as their photographer Jamie Street of St Chelle captured.
The dress was stunning when she found it, but when speaking to Wax, Wright said she did have to make some changes to the vintage piece, particularly because it was totally sheer when she bought it.
"The dress didn't have the original underdress with it as it had likely perished — it being 100 years old," she said. "So when I was first trying it on, it was completely see-through. It was quite funny having to imagine the underdress we would end up making for it."
As Wax reported, Wright paired the statement gown with a dewy makeup look, Prada shoes she already owned, and a half-back hairstyle with a vintage hairpiece. Cameron Rains styled her hair, and Amber Dreadon was her makeup artist.
"I liked the idea my hair could be clipped back into it, so it was clear of my face," she told Wax for Brides. "My hair is naturally so straight, so we added some texture which made it move in the wind beautifully."
Although she loved the vintage gown, Wright changed into a silver slip dress for the reception, which allowed her to dance the night away.
"Even when it started to rain in the last 30 minutes of the night, people kept going," she told Wax of how much fun the reception was.
"It was sad when our last song of the night played. We could have danced for hours more," she added.
