History in the making

So I don't think there will be a blog out there this weekend that won't post about the royal wedding. How can we not, it is truly a beautiful part of history being made.

How lovely was it? How gorgeous did Kate Catherine look? How amazingly stunning was her dress? And most importantly how happy did they look?

These are some of my favourite photo's from the wedding.

Her dress was absolutely beautiful, designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen. It is the perfect combination of tradition and modernity. Ivory satin bodice (very symbollic of McQueens work) overlayed by hand-cut English lace and Fench Chantilly lace. An interesting fact, the workers of the lace on the dress washed their hands every 30 minutes to keep the lace and threads in pristine condition! Only for a duchess....

Her bouquet of myrtle, lily-of-the-valley, sweet William and hyacinth.

Her sister, Pippa's dress was also designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen. Lovely.


Leaving Clarence House to travel to Buckingham Palace for post wedding celebrations. This dress also designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen.

I love their getaway in the Aston Martin Volante.

What a gorgeous couple and I wish them all the happiness.


  1. Perfection, she truly looked exquisite. And she did her own makeup!

  2. I thought it was all absolutely gorgeous! They did look very happy which is the most important thing :)

  3. It was magnificent wasn't it. Thanks for sharing the photos. So beautiful. Ange

  4. I haven't seen these photos (yet). Thanks so much for sharing them, what great perspectives of the wedding. I was up next to our 50" tv like a fool taking photos with my iphone of the service. I probably took 100 photos. hahah, I think the whole world is in love with the romance of these two.

  5. Hi Sarah,

    I'm a bit of a fairy tale junkie, I loved looking at your photos! Have a great week. Emma.

  6. My girlfriend had a girls night in to watch it and we had to all wear tragic op shop bridal attire and couldn't stop cooing over how gorgeous Kate looked, she really is a true princess isnt she.

  7. Such a beautiful occasion. We had a great night celebrating! Nicolex
