How Olivia Henson’s wedding tiara symbolises hers and Hugh Grosvenor’s love

Already deemed the society wedding of the year, Hugh Grosvenor – the seventh Duke of Westminster – and Olivia Henson’s tied the knot at Chester Cathedral at noon today.

The star-studded event has brought in royals and high-profile guests alike, including Prince William and Princess Eugenie.

Beaming at the crowds as she arrived, Olivia looked radiant in her wedding dress, with her veil majestically blowing behind her in the wind.

Of course, what caught the eye of diamond specialists at UK retailer Steven Stone was her choice of headwear, which was the Grosvenor family’s Faberge Myrtle Leaf Tiara.

“As the wedding of Hugh Grosvenor and Olivia Henson approached, there was widespread speculation about which tiara the bride would choose. Many assumed she would wear the Bagration Tiara, famously worn by Hugh’s mother on her own wedding day.

However, when Olivia arrived at Chester Cathedral, she dazzled in the Grosvenor family’s Fabergé Myrtle Leaf Tiara. This exquisite piece was originally crafted in 1906 for the wedding of Lord Hugh Grosvenor. 

Adorned with round brilliant diamonds, the intricate tiara features two sprays of myrtle leaves and berries, with stalks of engraved red gold and leaves set in rub-over silver, showcasing a perfect blend of elegance and heritage.

Not only is the tiara a sentimental choice as it was also worn by Hugh’s sister when she married Edward van Cutsem in 2004, but it’s also an incredibly romantic one as the myrtle leaf is a symbol of love and closely associated with Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of love.

I’d estimate the tiara to be worth $75,000 (£60,000).”
