A wedding fit for a princess

By Bride and Groom 15 October 2018

The world was again captivated by a real life fair tale when Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank were wed at Windsor Castle on Friday

It was the second royal wedding in the space of six months and it did not disappoint with many personal touches among the royal protocol.

The dress

Princess Eugenie was a regal bride in an ivory custom off-the-shoulder gown by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos.

The modern royal opted to forgo a veil to show off the dress' open back, designed to show off the scar from her scoliosis surgery.

The fabric incorporates a number of symbols meaningful to the couple including a thistle representing Scotland, a shamrock for the bride's Irish heritage, the York Rose and ivy.

To finish the look the Princess held a bouquet for lily of the valley, stephanotis, baby blue thistles, white spray roses, trailing ivy and sprigs of myrtle.

The second dress

After an afternoon reception hosted by the Queen at the castle the newlyweds had an outfit change prior to the evening celebrations at Windsor Great Park's Royal Lodge. 

The bride wore a long sleeve, blush silk Zac Posen gown with a built-in cape and pin-tucked plissé cut on the bias and mixed with signature drapes

The design was inspired by the colour of an English rose while the White Rose of York was subtlety embroidered on both the shoulder and back.
