Bride’s 1.8-mile veil is world’s longest

24 September 2011 No Comment

HERE comes the bride — and her 1.8-MILE veil.

Elena De Angelis sure turned heads with her bridal outfit, sporting the world’s longest veil when she walked down the aisle.

She needed 600 people to help her carry the headpiece — made from 3.7 miles of white silk — when she tied the knot with Ferdinand Pucci this week.

Thousands of people took to the streets of Casal di Principe, Naples, Italy, to watch as the bride travelled to the church in a vintage car and the veil was carried by a procession following behind.

The veil, which was two metres wide, was designed by Gianni Molaro Campania and has now entered the Guiness Book of World Records.

Molaro said: “I was really greateful to be asked to design this veil. I met tens of thousands of people on the way to the church who complimented my idea.

“I wanted this veil to symbolise peace and hope and I think we have achieved this.

“This has been one of the biggest moments in my career as a designer.”
