Record-breaking wedding dress

Here comes the bride and her TWO MILE train: Italian village brought to standstill by record-breaking wedding dress
By Stephen Hull

This bride went a tiny bit over the top with her wedding dress with a train that takes some stopping.

They say it’s a day you should never forget – and that’s certainly the case for Italian bride Elena De Angelis and the village of Casal di Princice.

She has broken the world record for the longest wedding dress by arriving to the church with a mammoth, 3km (1.86 mile) long veil.



Here comes the bride: Elena is sitting in the vintage car as hundreds of people come out to help her carry the dress through the streets of Casal di Princice


Hundreds of schoolgirls and their mothers turned out to help the bride-to-be along the streets of her village.

The Gianni Molaro designed cream dress, which is made from 6,000 metres of silk chord, is expected to be confirmed as the world’s longest by the Guinness book of Records.


It’s apparently 28 times the length of Manchester United's Old Trafford pitch and would take Usain Bolt running at blistering world recording pace almost five minutes to run its full length.

Driven to the church in a vintage car Elena was applauded by the entire village.

The veil literally stretched for miles and had to be carefully collected by designers after Elena arrived in the church.

It's a bundle: Hundreds of mother and workers from the design company worked together to get the three kilometre long dress into the church

A day to remember: The entire village of Casal di Princice came to a stand still for the epic wedding dress which was carried through the town
