Billie Faiers Marries Gregory Shepherd in the Maldives


There was no question that ITV star Billie Faiers would make the most beautiful Bride. In a first peek at the official photographs, which are being released by OK! magazine tomorrow, the reality star wow’s in her custom-made BERTA gown.

Billie’s wedding dress is effortlessly chic. Perfect for the Maldives beach wedding she had always dreamt of. Her BERTA gown is instantly noticeable for its 3D, cut-out flowers and figure-hugging silhouette.

So what do you need to know about BERTA, the brand chosen by Billie?

Founded by Berta Balilti in 2004, this international power-house has an avant-gard approach to wedding dress design and always tests the barriers of the wedding dress world. BERTA wedding dresses are unique and instantly recognisable. They showcase mouth-watering design with feminine shape and ultimate sophistication. BERTA is famous for bold, sexy, and modern-fit that incorporates vintage materials and retro styles.


Billie’s incredible wedding dress (as shown above) is a real show-stopper in our eyes! She looks sensational in the figure-hugging fishtail gown, which features a plunging neckline and an intricate lace and crystal embellishment.

Billie says of her wedding dress, “As soon as I tried it on I had ‘the feeling’; when you know you know! Because we didn’t get married in a Church I could get away with something more daring.”

It’s not hard for us to see why Billie chose to get married in BERTA. Their bridal couture is highly distinctive and makes a statement from start to finish. The elegant shaping and detailing is pure magic.

Part of BERTA’s success is due to their attitude towards the wedding industry. The designers present a couture level of quality yet at retail prices, available around the World to the masses.  In addition to designing the collections, Berta herself oversees the entire production process in her studio still to this day, despite having over 150 retailers around the World.


The BERTA brand boasts 2.3 Instagram followers, proving it is well and truly loved around the World.

Today the BERTA fashion house includes the famous namesake luxury bridal line, two more bridal lines by the names MUSE BY BERTA and BERTA PRIVÉE, as well as an evening line that is available at the BERTA NYC showroom in SoHo, Manhattan.

As one of the hottest names on the wedding scene, we adore BERTA wedding dresses! Sassy, stylish, with an edge of sexy… we think this gown suits Billie through and through; it’s not hard to see why she’s a BERTA Bride.

“It was like a fairy tale – all the stress and tears were worth it,” Billie told OK! Magazine.

One thing is for certain, you won’t forget a BERTA wedding dress once you’ve seen one.


A huge congratulations goes to Billie Faiers (now Shepherd) and Gregory Shepherd on their recent wedding. We wish you a lifetime of happiness together.

Billie Faiers shot to fame in the hit Television show The Only Way is Essex. She has her own clothing line and is one-half of ITV’s The Mummy Diaries with her sister Samantha Faiers.
