Pippa Middleton and James Matthews Wedding

The Cannes Film Festival may be in full swing, but the other major event of the weekend was the wedding of Pippa Middleton and James Matthews on Saturday (May 20) at St. Mark’s Church in England.

I was awestruck by the classic beauty of Pippa’s bespoke Giles Deacon lace gown that featured a heart-shaped cutout at the back. It was enduringly romantic, sophisticatedly feminine and forever timeless—everything you’d hope a wedding dress could be.

Her fine tulle veil, with its dégradé of embroidered pearls, was made by renowned milliner Stephen Jones, and it brought a delicate, whisper-light addition to the gown.

A Maidenhair Fern tiara and matching headpiece by Robinson Pelham, along with custom-made Robinson Pelham earrings and custom Manolo Blahnik ‘Seneca’ pumps completed the graceful, fairytale look.

Of course, we cannot forget the bride’s bouquet which included astilbe, sweet pea, peony, freesia and waxflower, as the lushly simple array of white blooms couldn’t have been more suiting.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge: Pretty in dusty-rose pink, Catherine relied on one of her favourite design houses, Alexander McQueen, for her sister’s wedding. I was most delighted by her accessories, including a Jane Taylor rose-topped fascinator and Kiki McDonough earrings. Gianvito Rossi tonal suede pumps rounded out the look. You might recognize the silhouette of her dress as one that is similar to the McQueen ensemble she wore several years ago.

Children: This might be my favourite photo from the wedding, as it had such a sweetly charming sensibility with James and Pippa providing classic romance in the background and the children—including Princess Charlotte and Prince George—all donning matching white flower-girl frocks and page boy ensembles designed by Pepa and Company.

Princess Eugenie of York: Princess Eugenie was the picture of relaxed, retro elegance in a Paule Ka navy, open-shoulder frock styled with colour-block Zara heels. She completed her look with an Anya Hindmarch ‘Crisp Packet’ clutch.

Donna Air: I love how the sheer paneling in this light, lemony Emilia Wickstead coatdress lifted the mood, with a matching Jane Taylor hat and a pink clutch adding touches of whimsy.

Carole Middleton: As the mother of the bride, Carole was couldn’t have been more chic in her bespoke Catherine Walker dress that was both dainty and elegant at the same time with its delightful, pastel-pink sensibility.

Roger and Mirka Federer: Tennis player Roger Federer was also in attendance with his wife, Mirka. Both kept it classic, with his formal tailcoat tuxedo and her two-piece dress that featured a feminine flared silhouette and a festive textural sheen.

    LOVE the second pic with all the children, cuteness overload.
    Pippa looked so happy in her GORGEOUS wedding gown, and kudos to her head accesories.
    and why did everyone dress like the Royal Ascot to her wedding? Is the fasinator a mandatory piece on the dress code?

    Pippa’s gown was beautiful. Kate’s was matronly. I don’t see why the Middleton’s engage designers known for their eclecticism (McQueen, Deacon) only to have them do more traditional styles.

    That dress is breathtaking, the Duchess is absolutely beautiful and the kids are adorable.

    This was such a wonderful dress . The rest of the guests looked awful except Carole. The DOC’s dress was dull and made her breasts look very droppy and the facinator was wrong.

    Pippa’s gown is totally stunning.

    Bride: What a beautiful gown. Reminds me of Nicole Kidman’s Valentino gown from Cannes which I loved.

    Children: Absolutely adorable

    Overall, a lovely wedding

    She is a very beautiful and elegant bride. Love her dress and smile.
    They both look so happy, and that’s the most important thing for a wedding to be a nice one. They seem like a lovely couple 🙂

    Beautiful, classic wedding dress.

    The Dutchess’ look, while elegant, does not surprise me at all.

    Donna Air is my best dressed guest.

    I, honestly, prefer her wedding dress over Catherine’s

      Yup, me too. And her styling as well. Her hair is wonderful.
