Best known globally as the younger sister of Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, Pippa Middleton finally had her very own moment to shine as she married multi-millionaire hedge fund manager James Matthews.
Having been extensively planned with one of the most high-profile guest lists around, the entire ceremony was conducted in a traditional, picture-perfect English setting fit for royalty.
Wearing a stunning Giles Deacon gown bearing a strong similarity to her sister Kate’s own wedding dress upon marrying Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, Pippa arrived at St. Mark’s church, Berkshire, England, accompanied by her father, Michael, ready for the ceremony to begin.
Despite strict security regulations, the bride received a welcoming cheer by onlookers and residents to the local area and, after a 45-minute ceremony, herself and James emerged from the church with beaming smiles – finally husband and wife!
As can be expected, many royal faces were seen in attendance, including Princes William and Harry, and Kate who was Maid of Honor.
So as not to upstage her sister, Kate was seen wearing a simple, dusky-pink dress designed by Alexander McQueen.
Whilst still effortlessly stylish and elegant as always, this outfit choice successfully allowed Pippa to rightfully take center stage as the gorgeous bride.
Also in attendance were Pippa’s niece and nephew Prince George and Princess Charlotte, looking simply adorable as a pageboy and flower girl.
One notable person missing throughout the ceremony was Prince Harry’s girlfriend, Meghan Markle. But she was later seen joining Prince Harry at the later wedding reception at the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire – a mere few miles away from the church in which the ceremony was held.
A simply stunning wedding bursting with traditional British charm, Pippa and James Matthews will now be celebrating their honeymoon in French Polynesia and Australia as loved-up newlyweds.
