As guests still recover from the two-day affair, the first official pictures from Princess Eugenie‘s wedding have been released. The royal, who wed her long-term partner Jack Brooksbank at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on October 12, is photographed surrounded by her family and wedding party in the first of the snapshots, captured by photographer Alex Bramall. The newlyweds were joined by the bride’s grandmother, HM Queen Elizabeth II, grandfather Prince Philip, and parents Sarah, Duchess of York, and Andrew, Duke of York in the White Drawing Room at Windsor Castle. (Royal fans may remember that Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex instead posed in the Green Drawing Room for their wedding portraits back in May).
The happy couple were also joined by the groom’s parents, brother, and the bride’s sister, Princess Beatrice, for the image, as well as their page boys and bridesmaids, including HRH Prince George and HRH Princess Charlotte of Cambridge. In an accompanying photograph, Princess Eugenie and her new husband pose with their young attendants, including Mia Tindall, daughter of Mike and Zara Tindall, and Theodora Williams, daughter of Robbie Williams and Ayda Field.
A third shot gave a first glimpse at the bride’s evening gown, a peach-hued creation by American designer Zac Posen. With a boat neckline, long sleeves, and nipped-in bodice, the sweeping dress was inspired by the white rose of York, in a tribute to the royal. “Mr Posen was inspired by the beauty of Windsor and the surrounding countryside. The choice of color reflects the blush of an English rose,” a statement from Royal Communications revealed. The gown was worn at the Royal Lodge ahead of a private evening dinner, which was attended by guests such as Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Cara Delevingne, and Ellie Goulding.
Princess Eugenie earlier donned a bespoke bridal gown by British-based label Peter Pilotto to exchange vows, designed by the label’s creative duo of Christopher de Vos and Peter Pilotto. With a fitted bodice and full, flowing skirt, the elegant number blended a classic, refined silhouette with a hint of texture for a contemporary twist. The royal teamed the sweeping number with the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik tiara, which twinkled with diamonds and emeralds under the camera flashes. The tiara, crafted in 1919 by Boucheron, was lent to Princess Eugenie by Her Majesty The Queen for the day. The bride purposefully decided to go without a veil for the ceremony, instead allowing the gown’s V-back to show her scars, gained after the royal underwent corrective surgery for scoliosis aged 12. Diamond and emerald earrings, a wedding gift from the groom, and Charlotte Olympia heels were Princess Eugenie’s finishing touches.
