Last Friday, Princess Beatrice wed Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a stunning, low-key ceremony – and we are in love!
The bride looked absolutely stunning, and the nuptials took place at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge in Windsor, with a guest list of 20 people.
For the special occasion, Beatrice opted for a vintage ivory gown made from Peau De Soie taffeta, and trimmed with ivory Duchess satin. The dress, which belongs to Queen Elizabeth, was designed by Norman Hartnell, and then customized to the bride’s needs. It features organza sleeves, diamanté adornments, and a checkered, geometric bodice. We don’t know about you, Fairies, but we think that the bride’s gown was an exquisite royal bridal look!
It is evident that the couple had a seriously quiet royal wedding, but their official photos are proof that the day was nothing short of magical!
“Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice of York and Mr Mapelli Mozzi have been touched by the warm wishes they have received since their wedding, and are delighted to share two additional photographs of their happy day,” a statement said.
The Princess had the ultimate “something borrowed” wedding and was loaned a stunning vintage gown and tiara from the Queen.
The ivory taffeta dress by Norman Hartnell featured puff sleeves and an intricate bodice while the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara was worn by the Queen on her own wedding day in 1947.
It infamously broke hours before the Queen walked down the aisle, prompting a hurried effort to fix it in time.
Beatrice was walked down the aisle by her father Prince Andrew, Buckingham Palace confirmed but no photos of Andrew or her mother Sarah Ferguson have been released.
The Queen herself, and Price Philip, were also in attendance.
Beatrice’s wedding band was designed by jeweller Shaun Leane, who also created her Art Deco-meets-Victorian engagement ring.
Hello reports Leane created the platinum and diamond band to fit around the engagement ring, with both crafted in consultation with the couple.
“I am thrilled for the happy couple, it warms my heart to see two wonderful people unite in love as much as Edoardo and Beatrice do,” the British jeweller said in a statement.
The use of platinum sets Beatrice’s wedding ring apart from others in the monarchy, as most royal brides (and some grooms) in the last 100 years have chosen gold.
More specifically, royal wedding rings have been created from a single lump of gold taken from the Clogau St David mine in Wales since 1923. These include wedding bands belonging to the Queen, Prince Charles, Princess Diana, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.
We wish this beautiful couple a lifetime of happiness!
