Pippa Middleton may not be royalty, but her beautiful wedding looks fit for a Queen! The bride walked down the aisle at the family’s village church of St Mark’s in Englefield wearing a custom made gown by British designer Giles Deacon. The designer, known for his edgy/gothic style, created a romantic gown with a modern twist for Pippa, which featured cap sleeves, a high neckline and corseted bodice with draping to the front, and a heart-shaped detail at the back.
According to Deacon: “The bespoke silk cotton lace was hand appliqued to create an illusion of the dress having no seams. The lace bodice is embroidered with pearl detailing over an organza and tulle underskirt for floor sweeping movement.”
Pippa’s sister, Catherine Duchess of Cambridge was on duty to manage the mini parade of pageboys and flower girls that included Prince George (3) and Princess Charlotte (2). In true mum style, she was spotted trying to keep the kids hushed as they entered the church.
Guests include the bride’s sister and brother-in-law The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and members of the royal family. Prince Harry’s girlfriend, Meghan Markel, will no doubt try her best to not upstage the bride while rubbing shoulders with other famous faces such as tennis ace Roger Federer.
Pippa and husband James Matthews will be celebrating with guests in the breathtaking $170,000 glass marquee at Bucklebury Manor (the Middleton family home). Guests will toast the newlyweds under an exquisite cherry blossom tree, but it’s said one of the most extravagant temporary features of the night was the $10,000 portaloos dubbed: “The Royal Thrones.”
