Fans of Matthew Mcconaughey will remember that he surprised his wife Camila Alves with a lavish proposal on Christmas Day, presenting her with a vintage-style diamond engagement ring.
The Brazilian matched the ring with a huge collection of bridal jewels for her wedding to the Hollywood star at their estate in Texas on Saturday (June 9, 2012). The details of the nuptials were kept safely under wraps, though the latest issue of People magazine reveals the extent of Alves's dazzling wedding look. Jeweller to the stars Neil Lane provided two pieces, including an elegant diamond headpiece and 10-carat earrings featuring pear-shaped diamonds to help provide a "very romantic, soft look". Lane told the magazine, "She wanted to wear her hair back with the glamorous earrings." The jeweller went on to explain that the platinum headband, designed initially as a bracelet, "has a beautiful Edwardian, art deco feel", adding, [It's] vintage without being too old-fashioned. It's an exquisite, romantic look". Alves certainly had to do a little work to get to her engagement ring over Christmas, with MCConuaghey saying at the time, "It was the last gift to be opened and I wrapped it in seven different boxes so Camila would have to keep unwrapping.She got the ring, I took a knee and asked her to marry me and take my name. After a bit, she conceded . thankfully".
As has been widely reported, the couple married in a three-day celebration over the weekend, with guests including Reese Witherspoon and KENNY CHESNEY.
