Inside Look At Lena Dunham’s London Wedding
Lena Dunham married musician Luis Welber in Soho, London over the weekend.
Luis proposed to Lena after she was ill in hospital, the couple told Vogue.
“‘I just I don’t ever want you to go through that on your own again.’ And you said, ‘Oh, I want to marry you someday.’ And I said, ‘Why don’t we make that someday, soon day?’”
Felber proposed with an family heirloom: Incan Peruvian ring from the early 1700s that belonged to his grandmother.
They were engaged for a month before tying the knot in a 60’s inspired impromptu wedding.

The wedding also featured certain Jewish elements, including a “chuppah, a traditional Jewish wedding altar” which was “one of a handful of spiritual gestures Dunham, whose mother is Jewish, and Felber, whose father is Jewish, wanted to include.”
The couple also shared a tender intimate moment underneath taallit, which belonged to their rabbi.
Lena wore total of three custom dresses by Christopher Kane.
Her look for the ceremony was a white long-sleeved A-line mini-dress complete with white tights and a bow-topped veil.
Her second look was a chic long satin gown with a high neck and split sleeves.

For the third and final dress, Dunham told Vogue that she cried during the final fitting.
“He did a painting of the portrait of us on our wedding invitation with these sequinned eyes and lips, and stuck it to the front of this beautiful A-line white silk dress.”
Taylor Swift and Tommy Dorfman attended the event as bridesmaids and also wore Christopher Kane gowns.
Lena and Luis honeymooned in Somerset.
