Audrey Hepburn and Mel Ferrer Wedding (1954)

The marriage of Audrey Hepburn and Mel Ferrer took place in Burgenstock, Switzerland, where they made their home.They married at a private civil ceremony on 24 September 1954 attended by close friends and family, followed by a service at the local Protestant chapel the following day.

The couple had been introduced at a party hosted by Hepburn’s co-star in Roman Holiday, Gregory Peck.

Her next role in Sabrina, released shortly after her wedding in October 1954, established a life-long working relationship and close friendship with Hubert de Givenchy, who designed the vast majority of her wardrobe from then on. However, on the occasion of this, her first marriage, Hepburn wore a gown of white organdie by French couturier and costume designer, Pierre Balmain.

Hepburn and Ferrer had a son, Sean, and divorced, at Hepburn’s instigation, in December 1968 (source).
