Duke & Duchess of Sussex – Congratulations

 

We just LOVE this photo – so simple but speaks a thousand words.  A moment of tranquillity following your wedding ceremony, a few moments to reflect on the enormity of the occasion to chat in private with your now husband/wife!

Wedding photography is no longer about standing in line, ‘ all look this way please’ thankfully photographers are far more creative nowadays.

The whole day was captured by the very talented Alex Ilubomirski

What kind of wedding photography/photographer are you hoping to work with on your big day?

 

 

The Gown

British designer Clare Waight Keller secured the fashion commission of the year, selected to design Meghan Markle’s wedding gown.

The Duchess of Sussex, is thought to have requested sketches and samples from several of the UK’s leading design names, leaving everyone guessing what she would be wearing right up until the moment she left her hotel, Windsor’s Cliveden House on the morning of the wedding.

Meghan opted for a boat neck neckline that framed her shoulders with a three-quarter length sleeve. The haute couture dress is made of double-bonded silk cady cushioned by an underskirt in triple silk organza, opting for elegance in cut and style on her slender frame.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The veil

Meghan also wore a five metre-long white silk veil covering her face which included floral detail representing all 53 countries of the Commonwealth. The bride suggested the design because the Commonwealth will be a central part of her and Prince Harry’s official work now they are married.

 

 

 

 

The brothers wore…

The brothers were each dressed for the rank of Major. But their uniforms had some subtle differences.

For the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the brothers were clad in the “the frockcoat uniform of the Blues and Royals,” according to the palace press office. The uniforms were made by Dege & Skinner.

 

The Badges and Medals
