Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi released two pictures one along with Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip and another only both of them leaving the All Saints Chapel in Windsor Great Park on Saturday. The couple got married in a surprise and very intimate wedding ceremony at the chapel on Friday morning with only 20 guests in attendance including family and close friends.
Now more details about the wedding has come to the fore. Check out the details here.
Princess Beatrice of York wore a vintage gown by Norman Hartnell, loaned from her grandmother Queen Elizabeth II. The gown in ivory is made from Peau De Soie taffeta, trimmed with ivory Duchess satin, with organza sleeves. It is encrusted with diamanté and has a geometric chequered bodice. It was remodelled and fitted by the queen's dresser Angela Kelly and dressmaker Stewart Parvin.
The bride wore the Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara, also on loan from her grandmother. The tiara was worn by the British monarch on her wedding day. The tiara was originally made for Queen Mary by Garrard and Co. in 1919, from a diamond necklace given by Queen Victoria for her wedding.
Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson's elder daughter carried a bouquet of trailing jasmine, pale pink and cream sweet peas, royal porcelain ivory spray roses, pink o'hara garden roses, pink wax flower and baby pink astible. In keeping with royal tradition, sprigs of myrtle were included in the arrangement. The bouquet was made by Patrice Van Helden, co-owner of RVH Floral Design.
The couple thanked the gardening teams at The Savill Garden and Windsor Great Park. Beatrice's bouquet has been placed on the tomb of the Unknown Warrior in Westminster Abbey.
The ceremony was officiated by The Reverend Canon Paul Wright, Sub-Dean of the Chapel Royal and The Reverend Canon Martin Poll, Domestic Chaplain to the queen. The national anthem wasn't sung, but played in the background. All social distancing measures were followed.
Beatrice was walked down the aisle by her father Andrew, while Mozzi's son Christopher was the best man and pageboy. The wedding was attended by the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, the couple's parents and siblings. The princess's ring was designed by Shaun Lane while her husband's is a vintage gold band designed by Josh Collins. The photographs released by the Palace were taken by Benjamin Wheeler.
