William & Kate: Royal Wedding Highlights

2 May

Will & Kate Engagement Photos

Royal wedding highlights from the dress, to the bouquet, to the jewels and veil directly from me, who pulled an all-nighter to catch the best of the royal wedding live and direct from London. Kate Middleton looked so calm and serene as her car drove up to the Westminster Abbey and as she walked down the aisle to meet her awaiting Prince. One of the best caught moments was Harry cracking jokes at the Prince as Kate walked up to him. The Prince’s response to his oh so long awaiting bride? “You’re beautiful”; all a girl wants to hear on her wedding day from her Prince.

The details of the dress were by far one of the best kept secrets in society since…forever? There were rumours as of last night that Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen was the dress designer since she was seen sneaking into Kate’s hotel; and indeed it was Sarah Burton herself who not only designed Kate’s dress but her sister Pippa’s as well.

I was a huge fan of the lace on Kate’s dress which really brought out a classy  and feminine side to the dress, as well as added character. It was evident that Kate was quite involved in the design since it is very much reflective of her simple and modern side, all while not forgetting the traditional aspects. Her shoes were also designed by the McQueen House.

Kate’s Cartier tiara was given to the queen on her 18th birthday and worn by her of course on many occasions; and it came to no surprise that everyone was in shock and could not get over the gorgeous Cartier tiara once its history and details were confirmed.

Kate Middleton's Bouquet

Kate’s bouquet was made up of a mixture of gorgeous flowers that represented happiness, love, friendship and marriage. The bouquet was significant of many aspects that she wants as part of her marriage.

The Famous Balcony Kiss

The second most anticipated event of the royal wedding, after the revelation of the dress of course, was the balcony kiss by the couple following their wedding ceremony. They had practiced and practiced to make sure they go this kiss just right!; since it is going to me on most, if not all, media outlets around the world for many years to come. William and Kate, who were named the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, had to ensure they had an excellent camera angle as they kissed since without a doubt their famous balcony kiss will be displayed on stamps, memorabilia and so on; not only in magazines, news papers and television.

The wedding was magical and reflective of the fairy tale that most of us girls dream of. It was particularly an exciting experience to watch the wedding live since it is an occassion not everyone gets to experience. I truly wish Kate and Will the best for the future and believe they will do a fantastic job at taking over the roles of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. In a few more years you will get to watch my wedding with Prince Harry..a girl can dream right??

With Love,
Christie
