Sing a song for this couple. Two of South Korea’s biggest stars, Song Hye-Kyo and Song Joong-Ki, recently married in a lavish Seoul wedding, and fans around the world are beside themselves over the ceremony photos and details revealed this weekend.
The couple, both A-list actors in Asia, fell in love while filming wildly popular 2016 Korean drama Descendants of the Sun. They kept their relationship a secret before officially announcing their engagement this summer to unknowing fans, solidifying their status as the “Song-Song couple” (a term of endearment for their shared last names).
On October 31, the bride and groom exchanged vows at the famed Shilla Hotel in Seoul before a star-studded guest list, which included many of the couple’s fellow A-listers.
The bride looked resplendent in a custom, haute couture gown by Dior artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri, which the French fashion house confirmed this weekend on social media. “Take a look at the making of an haute couture creation,” Dior shared on Instagram. “Here with the sketch for Song Hye Kyo’s sigh-inducing wedding dress, exclusively designed by our Artistic Director #MariaGraziaChiuri.”
Following the big day, the bride took to Instagram to express her appreciation to fans around the world. “Thank you so much for your sincere understanding and interest,” the actress shared, “and also for blessing us with loving hearts.”
This is the first marriage for both stars, who enjoyed their own respective, standout film and television careers prior to the nuptials. Take a look at the details from the wedding day below.
Dior creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri worked on the bride’s custom couture gown, a long-sleeve, lace creation. Chiuri also worked with supermodel Miranda Kerr on her gown this year.
If you can imagine it, they can make it. Such was the case for Korean actress Song Hye Kyo’s exquisite wedding dress. Following a design by #MariaGraziaChiuri, the petites mains in our famed haute couture atelier flou set about exercising all their extraordinary skill and meticulous attention to detail to whip up a sweeping silk gown of which dreams are made!
