Over 29 million tuned in to watch the Royal Wedding on Saturday, May 19, 2018. Suddenly an artistically-crafted wedding film to keep the memories alive complete with movement and audio sounds well worth the price tag, wouldn’t you agree? If you had missed the livestream, or if you just prefer to read and view photos instead, here is our little recap of the Royal Wedding!
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – now The Duke and Duchess of Sussex – married on a Saturday, which breaks away from tradition as royal weddings usually take place on a weekday (The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wed on a Friday, and the Queen’s wedding was on a Thursday). Officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, their ceremony took place at St. George’s Chapel where dramatic florals awaited, comprising of beech, birch and hornbeam that complemented white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves taken from the gardens and parkland of the Crown Estate and Windsor Park. Music included a rendition of Ben E. King’s soul classic “Stand By Me” performed by Karen Gibson and The Kingdom Choir, as well as a gospel choir that sang Etta James’ version of “Amen/This Little Light of Mine.”
As far as fashion went, Meghan Markle’s ring of Welsh Gold was gifted by the Queen, while Prince Harry’s band was created from platinum with a textured finish. Both rings were crafted in the Cleave workshop and were carried to the chapel by the Duke of Cambridge. Perhaps one of the most anticipated moments from the wedding was the reveal of Markle’s dress designer. British designer Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy worked with Markle to craft a custom gown created out of double bonded silk cady with an open bateau neckline. The veil, designed to represent the distinctive floral of each Commonwealth country united in one spectacular composition, was made from five meter-long silk tulle with a trim of hand-embroidered flowers in silk threads and organza, held in place by Queen Mary’s diamond tiara lent by the Queen.
