Yesterday, Pippa Middleton tied the knot with hedge fund manager James Matthews in a private ceremony at St Mark’s church in Englefield in Berkshire, England, surrounded by family and friends. The bride arrived at the ceremony in a vintage car with her father, wearing a lace Giles Deacon dress with a high neckline, cap sleeves, and an open back. She gathered her chestnut lengths into a sleek, classic chignon. A tulle, pearl-embellished veil by milliner Stephen Jones, paired with a Maidenhair Fern tiara and handmade hairpiece by Robinson Pelham, flawlessly framed her bronzed-out glow. The bridal look was complete with a pair of ivory Manolo Blahnik pumps.
Before Middleton entered the venue, her older sister, Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, made some adjustments to her train. The beautiful bride carried a bouquet of white flowers as her father escorted her down the aisle of the 12th century church, which underwent some renovations in preparation of the wedding.
For the occasion, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a blush pink Alexander McQueen dress accessorized with a hat, while her children, three-year-old Prince George and two-year-old Princess Charlotte, were page boy and bridesmaid respectively. Both children wore ensembles by childrenswear brand Pepa & Co. Among the guests were Prince William, Prince Harry, Princess Eugenie, and the groom’s brother and best man, Spencer Matthews. Prince Harry’s girlfriend, Meghan Markle, was absent at the ceremony, but attended the reception.
Following the wedding ceremony, the newlyweds made their way to the Middleton family home, Bucklebury Manor, which is just 6km away from the church, in a Jaguar convertible to celebrate their nuptials with their 150+ guests. A massive greenhouse, which is meant to accommodate up to 350 people, was constructed near the family home for guests to mingle and rejoice.
Mabrouk to the newlyweds!
