With her sister Kate’s marriage to Prince William a few years ago, Pippa burst onto the scene thanks to that jaw-dropping Alexander McQueen dress that thrilled magazines across the world. Now Pippa has thrilled us once again, this time with her own wedding to former racecar driver turn hedge-fund manager, James Matthews.
The biggest wedding of the year, the couple was wed at St Mark’s Church on Saturday morning in a ceremony that lasted 45 minutes and was followed by a reception that reportedly lasted until 4 in the morning (as an avid partier, I am impressed!).
The bride wore a beautiful Giles Deacon dress, crafted especially for her of delicate lace with a keyhole back and soft, high neck. Deacon said: “I was thrilled to work with Pippa on her wedding dress. The dress is constructed with a cap sleeve, high neckline and features a corseted bodice with draping to the front and a heart-shaped detail at the back. The bespoke silk cotton lace was hand appliqued to create an illusion of the dress having ‘no seams’. The lace bodice is embroidered with pearl detailing over an organza and tulle underskirt, which has payer upon layer to enable a floor sweeping movement. It’s a privilege to show the craftsmanship that my team produces in London and a real testament to Pippa’s support of British fashion.” The dress was teamed with a Stephen Jones veil, a Maidenhair Fern tiara, and Manolo Blahnik ivory satin shoes.
The Duchess wore her favourite designer (of course), an Alexander McQueens ensemble. Catherine was busy all day ushering the pageboys and flower girls and ensuring they were on their best behaviour. They looked so darn cute I don’t think anyone would have even minded if they were a little restless – kids will be kids!
It’s safe to say that brides will be looking to Pippa Middleton (or Matthews?) for wedding inspiration all year.
P.s People wear the wackiest damn things to British weddings and I honestly don’t understand it.
