Chelsea Clinton wed long-term beau Marc Mezvinsky on Saturday in upstate New York in a picture-perfect ceremony that was kept largely under wraps, with local roads closed and a no fly zone imposed above the Hudson River Valley. 

The only daughter of former U.S. president Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton looked stunning in a strapless Vera Wang gown, which featured a silk tulle diagonally draped bodice with an organza ball skirt and train.  The glowing bride also wore a gorgeous silver-jewelled embroidery band around her waist, accentuating her tiny figure.

The groom was stylish in a black Burberry tux, while the mother of the bride looked fabulous in a raspberry degrade silk gazar gown by Oscar de la Renta. The bridesmaids also wore lovely Vera Wang lavender chiffon strapless gowns.

Bill Clinton, sporting a classic black suit, slimmed down to give his daughter away, having shed over 20 pounds for the big day!

The wedding was relatively quiet, with very few A-listers, though Hollywood star Ted Danson and former secretary of state Madeline Albright were two attendees in the guest list of about 500. Although how you have a ‘quiet’ wedding when the equivalent of £6,400 was spent on each guest, including £7,000 for a vegan and gluten-free cake, I just don’t know!

The wedding took place at sunset at Astor Courts, a Beaux Arts-style estate on the Hudson River.  Clinton, 30, and Mazvinsky, 32, were friends as teenagers and attended Stanford University together.  The happy couple embraced each other’s religious backgrounds, with both a minister and a rabbi conducting the ceremony; Clinton is a Methodist Christian while Mezvinsky is Jewish.     

All in all, it was a beautiful wedding free of hoards of paparazzi for the spotlight-bound former first daughter.  Hope the two newlyweds have a great honeymoon
