Fendi heiress married handsome beau in lavish Ibiza ceremony last weekend
Ibiza saw its first big society wedding of the season last weekend, when fashion scion Paola Fendi married Aram Ahmed in a lavish ceremony which saw 250 guests descending on the White Isle.
Yet despite the bride’s family history, she did not wear Fendi – instead opting for a dramatic Valentino gown featuring full skirt, high neck and long lace sleeves, wearing her long brunette hair down, with just a sweet hair clip to hold it in place. Her husband also wore white, opting for a very smart tux and a chic boutonnière pinned to his pocket.
The day began with a church ceremony at a 13th-century cathedral, which featured a performance from local singers, before the celebrations really got underway with dinner and a DJ set at the Atzaró Agroturismo hotel. There was a beautiful flower wall backdrop to the cake-cutting moment, as well as sparklers.
Guests at the nuptials included a mix of Italian socialites and the international jet set. It was a double celebration, as the bride’s namesake grandmother was also turning 90.
Of her famous relative, she told fashion brand Kitri’s website in 2019: ‘My grandmother, who I am named after, and my mother. I come from a family of elegant, intelligent, independent, strong, confident, creative and innovative women. My grandmother is always curious, always looking at the future and very wise. She started working when she was 14 years old in the world of fashion and, alongside her sisters, they have created a beautiful legacy. Both her and my mother have influenced my style as well as my work ethic and ambition.’
Fendi has pursued a career in the art world, working for Christie’s auction house in New York as a specialist in post-war and contemporary art. She studied at Oxford University, Paris’s La Sorbonne at Boston University, before beginning her career at Christie’s and working her way up the ladder. The couple became engaged in London in 2019.
