It was a perfect summer wedding with sixteen bridesmaids and flower girls wearing beautiful tiaras and looking adorable in the lovely Bonpoint dresses. Kate looked absolutely beautiful in John Galliano’s creation.
The pathway to the church was lined with low arrangements of pretty flowers – delphiniums, daisies, scabious, and sweet-scented stock. These flowers were also used to deck the rustic interiors of the blissful church.
The bridal party arrived in a fleet of very sophisticated ribboned vintage Rolls-Royces driven by grey-uniformed chauffeurs. Guests were awestruck as the bridal party entered. It was a fantasy – a parade of beautifully decked girls with the bride looking like a princess. It was totally magical!
Post the wedding the celebration moved to Kate’s garden which had tea light candles hanging from fruit trees in glass jam jars and rustic lanterns. The décor was overwhelming. There was a “Second Look Tent” which had arrangements for guests to change post the wedding for the celebrations. It had faceted mirrors and dressing tables adorned with pink and beige roses.
The gazebo laid for dinner was lit with Victorian chandeliers, and silver ashtrays from the 1920’s. A combination of pale apricot and lilac roses were used for table arrangements, while Chesterfield sofas and Edwardian palms flanked the dance floor- a perfect setting to unwind!!
