Oh How We Loved The Royal Wedding!

The Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle was all we dreamed of – and more! 


    THE CHAPEL DECOR:

    The Flowers:

    Florist Phillipa Craddock decorated St. George's Chapel in Windsor with all kinds of locally-sourced flowers and foliage. A cascade of flowers, lots of greenery (including beech and birch trees) and endless white roses. The floral installations that form arches at the entrance as well as inside the chapel are epic. Imagine the aroma!

    Apparently the florist and her team only finished the impressive display at 5am on the morning of May 19.

    WHAT THE COUPLE WORE

    Prince Harry wore a 'FrockCoat' suit.

    Meghan Markle wore her hair in a low chignon bun with a veil and tiara. The sophisticated gown was made by Givenchy's Clare Waight Kellere and the five-metre veil included intricate embroidery – a flower to represent each of the 53 Commonwealth Countries. New Zealand = the kōwhai.

    Meghan's diamond earrings and bracelet were from Cartier.


    THE RECEPTION

    Meghan wore a halterneck custom gown from Stella McCartney for the Evening Reception. Her 'something borrowed' and 'something blue' was noted by her stunning ring – thought to have been a gift from Harry. Diana, Princes of Wales, wore the emerald-cut aquamarine ring to a charity event in Sydney in 1996.
