Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani Wedding

London, England
Los Angeles, California

September 14, 2002

Gavin Rossdale married Gwen Stefani on September 14, 2002 at St. Paul’s Church in London. The couple exchanged traditional Anglican vows in front of 150 family and friends.

Stefani was chauffeured to the church in a blue 1970s Rolls-Royce, making a dramatic entrance to the ceremony approximately one hour late.

She wore a custom-made pink and white silk faille wedding dress by John Galliano for Dior, with an antique lace veil also designed by John Galliano. Her eight bridesmaids wore bias-cut silk dresses by Dior.

The bride walked down the aisle on the arm of her father, Dennis, carrying a bouquet of phalaenopsis orchids, rosary beads and her grandmother’s Catholic prayer book.

The groom wore a traditional British morning suit and was escorted by his Hungarian sheepdog, Winston, who donned a garland of red flowers.

Following the vows, guests boarded double-decker buses and headed to Home House, a private club, where a six-course Italian dinner was served in the courtyard garden. The menu included risotto, pasta and seafood.

Two weeks after their London nuptials, the couple hosted a vow-renewal ceremony in Los Angeles at the home of Interscope Records head Jimmy Iovine. The event was planned by Mindy Weiss.

Invitations, created by Lehr & Black, asked guests like Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston and Ben Stiller to “dress romantic.”

The bride wore the same John Galliano for Dior gown from the London ceremony, this time paired with a Georgian pendant of pink tourmaline, peridot and diamonds by Neil Lane.

To celebrate their first anniversary, Rossdale and Stefani returned to St. Paul’s Covent Garden with the same car and driver they had on their wedding day.
