Commenting on the winning design Phillipa said: "It has great balance and proportion, and just the right amount of embellishment. I'm really looking forward to meeting Lauren and am sure we shall have a lot of fun making this creation."

Lauren and her fiancé, George, are planning to marry next September in Tuscany. Their wedding will be a three-day affair, staring the festivities on a Friday night and finishing with a farewell brunch on the Sunday.
