Royal Wedding Photos: Prince William and Kate Middleton’s Big Day
Kate arrived at Westminster Abbey in a stunning Sarah Burton gown — complete with lace sleeves with a plunging neckline and full veil. She entered the Abbey led by her father, while sister and maid of honor Pippa held her train.
Prince William — in full uniform and alongside his brother Harry — arrived at around 10:15a.m. local time wearing a red military jacket, with Harry in the more traditional dark coat. the ceremony lasted a bit more than an hour, as William and Kate smiled and stared at each other before exchanging vows and eventually making their way out of the Abbey, down the red carpet and into the carriage for a ride through London.
Then, on a balcony at Buckingham Palace with thousands gathered beneath them and millions watching worldwide, the couple exchanged a short kiss — making the entire process official.
The blushing bride was covered with a veil and was wearing a tiara as she waved to the crowds on her way to Westminster Abby. Her long sleeve dress has a lace overlay. Kate chose champagne colored flowers to accompany the breath-taking gown.
“Miss Middleton chose British brand Alexander McQueen for the beauty of its craftsmanship and its respect for traditional workmanship and the technical construction of clothing. Miss Middleton wished for her dress to combine tradition and modernity with the artistic vision that characterises Alexander McQueen’s work. Miss Middleton worked closely with Sarah Burton in formulating the design of her dress.”
Pippa Middleton looked radiant as she arrived at the Westminster Abbey on Friday for the royal wedding.
Her ivory satin dress had a cowl front and was designed and created by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen. It was designed with the same button detail and lace trims as Kate’s dress, making it quite lovely!
Meanwhile, childrenswear designer Nicki Macfarlane created the young bridesmaids’ dresses. All of the dresses were hand-made and hand-finished with delicate English Cluny lace, which is visible under the skirts.
