Ellie Goulding posted more cool photos from her fancy-pants wedding

One of the best things about celebrities on social media is that they’ll often show off their wedding photos. It is truly one of my favorite things! I love looking at wedding photos and I love that so many celebrities don’t do the “well, I’ll only sell these photos to Vogue/People” thing anymore. Celebrities are just like us – they spend a fortune on their weddings, and they want to show it off with carefully curated wedding photos on social media.

Ellie Goulding is the same. Ellie got married over the weekend, and photographers got lots of shots of her Victorian-inspired wedding gown for the church-wedding. But Ellie had three dress changes for the reception(s), and she gave us a better look at those dresses on her social media (some of these shots are from Instagram Stories). Her first reception dress was a sleek, modern, off-the-shoulder column dress by Stella McCartney. There was also a white dress with a beaded top/sleeves which has not been ID’d. And there was also a white minidress for the end of the night.

Ellie posted the above Instagram with this message:

This weekend I married the love of my life, in God’s own country, surrounded by the people I cherish. Overwhelmed with gratitude. Thank you eternally to everyone involved in such a special time, including every single person that traveled from far and wide to come and celebrate with us at York Minster- a place that my husband and his family hold close to their hearts. I will never forget your support and generosity. We both send you all so much love and a massive hug xx

It’s sweet. It also makes me think that her new husband is well-connected? Is he, like, aristo-adjacent or something? Ellie is good friends with the York princesses and Prince Harry, and now I’m wondering if her husband fits into that society very well too.

    Much prefer her Stella McCartney dress to the Victoriana / Duchess Kate cosplay. Think the unidentified full length dress is Ralph & Russo? Not sure about the mini dress.

  2. Tiffany says:

    Now that I have seen more of her wedding dress, I like it. I like it a lot.

    • sequinedheart says:

      I adore her wedding dress. It’s elegant and not fussy. Reminds me of the Prada number that Hailey Bieber wore on her Vogue cover, but with sleeves.
      Also, the rest of Ellie’s dress collection for her wedding are to die for. This girl has exquisite taste.

    As the risk of being a whole American ass, can someone explain why my FB is chockablock full of the details of this wedding?

    It seems every entertainment outlet is covering this as if Taylor Swift put a ring on it and I was unaware Ellie was that high profile.

    • ME says:

      Slow entertainment news week. Normally the Kardashians amp up during slow gossip weeks but they are oddly quiet.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      She’s pretty big in the UK. Just not here in the States. I honestly only know one of her songs and it was just “okay” to me.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        This is a random question but…did she get lip fillers?? Were her lips always that full or am I imagining things?

      • DS9 says:

        I think I know four. But there is one I love almost as much as my children, Hearts Without Chains.

        I could lay in the dark and listen to it on repeat for days I’m sure.

      • Kitten says:

        She’s been getting lip fillers for quite some time now.

      • Nahema says:

        I’m in the UK and tbh I don’t like any of her music even though I’ve ended up seeing her live at 3 different music festivals. Other people seem to love her.

        She really strikes me as a wannabe royal though. So much that she says and does feels that way.

      • Redgrl says:

        @vv – yes she needs to stop messing with her lips.

  4. Diana says:

    Only like the off the shoulder one! She looks great in that dress and should have only stuck to the one look imo.

  5. Shana says:

    I’m sorry, but her lips… far from a tasteful job…

  6. Jillian says:

    I think having white flowers at a wedding is so boring, why not mix it up? It’s her day though

    I LOVE her dresss

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      My sister’s bouquet was all different shades of white flowers with a bit of greenery. I thought it looked very elegant (it was a black and white wedding). Her dress was an antique “whipped cream” color, mine and the bridesmaids were black. It really was gorgeous. (Just my opinion, of course! 😊 )

  7. Yamayo says:

    Am I right in thinking she hasn’t released any music for years?
    All I know if that she played at Kate and William’s wedding and had a thing with Harry.

    Her adult bridesmaids were wearing the most hideous unflattering dresses I HAVE EVER SEEN. Please Google, it is so worth it.

    • ME says:

      “Close to Me” is the latest song I’ve heard from her and it’s pretty good…it features Swae Lee.

    • Burdzeye View says:

      I had a nightie like that in the 70′s!

    • Diana says:

      Oh my God! Those dresses are TRAGIC!!! 🤣🤣🤣 #dead

    • AnnaKist says:

      Cynical me believes ugly bridesmaid dresses announce, “I. Am. The. Star. Of. This. Show.” And these particular frocks are ghastly.

    • Sarah says:

      I just googled and wow you are not wrong! Those poor women .

    • Malificent says:

      Wow, these bridesmaids dresses required Machiavellian amounts of designing on Ellie’s part to make sure that every bridesmaid appears to have the breasts of an octogenarian:
      1) Must be a sheer material, so I can issue an edict that no one can wear bras.
      2) Must be high-waisted with banding just below the breasts.
      3) Must have a crew neck.

    • Mira says:

      Whoa! I googled and I wasn’t disappointed. Honestly, the dresses make them look like the sister-wives of some nasty old dude.

  8. Cay says:

    Oh, she said “God’s Own Country.” Now I’m going to be thinking about that awesome movie all day.

  9. gingersnaps says:

    Yeah he is, his parents are the Hon Nicholas Jopling of Yorkshire and his mother Jayne Warde-Aldam of Yorkshire, he’s educated in Eton and Harvard so not surprised he moves in the same aristo/landed gentry circles as his family is well connected.

    • soaps says:

      His uncle is Jay Jopling, founder and owner of the contemporary art gallery White Cube, who represent Damien Hirst, Tracy Emin, etc. An enormous character in the art world, he and Charles Saatchi were responsible for the explosion of the YBAs in the early 90s and the revitalisation of British art. He and Casper are very close apparently and they are a spitting image! I would say Casper is probably even more well-connected than Ellie.

  10. Kate says:

    I like the off the shoulder column dress a lot, but I don’t think it’s as formal as the groom’s outfit or the venue. They look like they are at different events side by side. Her first gown definitely fits the big fancy church and long coat tails vibe.

  11. Lisa says:

    The Stella M. dress is lovely.

  12. OriginalRose says:

    So how many hours was she in each dress? It seems like a bit of a faff to me to change 4 times in a day. How strange. There’s so much else going on it must be weird to then have to dash off to change again

    • Mo says:

      Or it’s an excuse to go off and change again. I’m so introverted I eloped, but if I had to do a big wedding, I think ducking away to put up my feet for a bit, have a cup of tea and change outfits would be a fantastic plan. Plus the new dress would be something to chit chat about.

      Looking at the pictures yesterday, I liked her dress, but wasn’t crazy about it. Seeing it up on the altar, it is gorgeous. It was clearly designed for that view, that lighting, that backdrop.

  13. Catherine says:

    We all need to go to castle Howard


  14. Katinka says:

    I wish she didn’t have so much work done 😕 she was super cute before, you guys! https://theskincareedit.com/.amp/2016/10/17/ellie-goulding-before-and-after

  15. KLO says:

    Her husband looks like a snack. That is all.

  16. K says:

    Her lips look ridiculous

  17. Ravine says:

    Getting married at York Minster… Wow! I was there a year ago, and it was breathtaking. Incredible acoustics, too.
