The celebrations began earlier this morning with more than 2600 guests and amongs them a lot of celebrities were seen such as the cast of Suits, Priyanka Chopra, David & Victoria Beckham, Tom Hardy… After the ceremony, Meghan & Harry were seen kissing on the steps of the St Georges Chapel. Then they left in an Ascot Landau riding through the streets of Windsor and waving to the crowd. More than thousands of people were waiting to see them and share their joy with the couple. Later in the day, Sir Elton John has performed at the Lunchtime Reception. The Reception which was hosted by Her Majesty The Queen took place at St George’s Hall, Windsor Castle.
Ms. Meghan Markle’s wedding dress has been designed by the acclaimed British designer, Clare Waight Keller. Ms. Waight Keller last year became the first female Artistic Director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy.
Ms. Markle expressed the wish of having all 53 countries of the Commonwealth with her on her journey through the ceremony. Ms. Waight Keller designed a veil representing the distinctive flora of each Commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral composition.
The veil is five meters long and made from silk tulle with a trim of hand-embroidered flowers in silk threads and organza.
The veil is held in place by Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau tiara, lent to Ms. Markle by The Queen. The diamond bandeau is English and was made in 1932, with the entre brooch dating from 1893.
The wedding shoes are based on a Givenchy refined pointed couture design made of a silk duchess satin.
Prince Harry handpicked several flowers yesterday from their private garden at Kensington Palace to add to the bespoke bridal bouquet designed by florist Philippa Craddock.
The Bride’s bouquet is a petite design, pulled together in a gentle, ethereal, relaxed style with delicate blooms also including scented sweet peas, lily of the valley, astilbe, jasmine and astrantia, and sprigs of myrtle, all bound with a naturally dyed, raw silk ribbon.
Ms. Markle’s hair was styled by Serge Normant, with make-up by long-time friend and make-up artist Daniel Martin.
