The Happy couple
Congratulations to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle who were married in a fairy-tale wedding ceremony at St George’s chapel on May 19th. Prince Harry spent a lot of his childhood here and even got christened at the same chapel the royal wedding was held. Not that there needs to be a reason to want to marry here as the grounds and chapel make for stunning pictures and is more than royal wedding worthy.
Wedding dress and hair
Meghan Markle’s wedding dress for the royal wedding received mixed reviews, with some critics calling it boring and plain. It is hard to disagree that the dress was simple for a royal wedding but the simplicity of the dress was made up for with her natural beauty and stunning tiara. The veil also deserves a mention; the length was 5 metres long and took hundreds of hours to stitch, making brides-to-be envious everywhere. The designer and look of the dress for the royal wedding was kept top secret during the build up, now we can give credit to Givenchy’s British artistic director Clare Waight Keller.
The night goes on..
The royal wedding ceremony finished and the newly married couple went to get ready for their reception at Frogmore house. When she emerged from Windsor castle with Prince Harry on her arm, with a stunning new dress. Meghan was wearing a custom made ‘lily white’ Stella McCartney gown which oozed elegance and class. We loved it and thought it suited her perfectly. @StellaMcCartney tweeted describing the dress as “a bespoke high neck lily white gown in silk crepe”. To finish the dress Meghan was wearing an aquamarine cocktail ring owned by the late Princess Diana, complete with a matching bracelet.
For her second look she opted for her signature messy bun as mentioned earlier, the finish was looser than the bun for the royal wedding done by London’s top stylist George Northwood. The newly appointed Duke and Duchess of Sussex then drove off in an iconic Jaguar E-type as they made their way to the royal wedding reception. We at limelight wish them all the happiness in the world and a long, loving marriage!
