Nicky Hilton is clearly still pinching herself one week after her fairytale nuptials to James Rothschild. The hotel heiress posted a tender snap on Instagram to mark the first milestone since her big day.
The photo showed 31-year-old Nicky, kissing her new husband – who looked dapper in a crisp black suit. The bride’s beautiful dress can also be seen in all its glory.
“One week ago,” she simply captioned the image, alongside a heart emoticon.
The new Mr and Mrs Rothschild looked to be in a world of their own as they shared the intimate moment, while one of Nicky’s bridesmaids helped smooth out the bride’s flowing train.
While many women stay tight-lipped about the details of their wedding dress, Nicky was always open about her dream of walking down the aisle in Valentino. Her show-stopping gown, which is said to have cost around , approximately $100,550 CAD, took pride of place in the photo.
The Valentino haute couture wedding dress was made with three different tones of ivory and silver guipure, and richly embellished with crystals. It was reminiscent of the Duchess of Cambridge’s stunning gown, featuring long lace sleeves, a cinched waist and a flowing skirt.
Nicky and her banker beau married on Friday 10 July in a romantic ceremony in London. The couple exchanged vows in front of family and friends, including Nicky’s sister and her maid of honour Paris Hilton, at The Orangery in Kensington Palace, just a stone’s throw away from where Kate and Prince William live.
Paris was joined by her boyfriend Thomas Gross, while other guests included Prince William’s good friend Thomas van Straubenzee, and Chelsea Clinton and her husband Marc Mezvinsky.
Crown Prince Pavlos and Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece represented the royals on the guest list.
Bernie Ecclestone’s daughter Petra and her husband James Stunt also attended. It was at their 2011 wedding in Italy where Nicky met her future husband James and the pair later got engaged in August 2014.
Ahead of the big day, the bride and her older sister Paris, 34, got ready in a suite at Claridges. The TV personality shared a few snaps on Instagram of Nicky’s wedding preparations, including one of the siblings wearing their matching dressing gowns, bearing the words bride and maid of honour.
