Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen celebrates baby news – see photo

Congratulations are in order for Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen as the famed interior designer has welcomed another grandchild after his daughter Hermione gave birth to a baby girl.

The proud father-of-the-bride not only walked his daughter down the aisle, which he described as his “highlight of the whole day”, but he also turned bridal designer by designing her wedding dress.

“I was very keen that Hermione should wear something elegant; she needed something architectural and youthful. I came up with a simple design – a white satin dress with a nipped-in waist, sweetheart neckline and a little white velvet cape with a [fake] fur trim,” Laurence told HELLO! of the classic design, which features long sleeves and a full skirt.

And it was a role that Hermione was happy for her dad to take, sharing: “There was no way I’d say no as I knew he’d have my best interests at heart.”

Laurence had a big part in planning the wedding between his daughter and her husband Drew Marriott, as he also designed the wedding outfits for his wife Jackie and eldest daughter Cecile.

The 56-year-old also revealed that the four older bridesmaids were given a red colour scheme but were free to wear what they liked, adding: “I hate that cabin crew look.”
