It was a romantic, dreamy wedding- till yesterday, all we could do was imagine what the out-of-the-blue wedding of Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi would have been like, but not anymore, ‘cause the royal couple has finally shared their swoon-worthy wedding photos! And as per reports, “the wedding was incredibly romantic” where Beatrice wore a romantic ivory dress plus a regal, sparkling diamond tiara, handed down to her by grandmother Queen Elizabeth, 94, who wore the same tiara when she married Prince Philip.
Princess Beatrice and Edoardo have shared two beautiful, flowery wedding photos (captured by famous wedding photographer, Benjamin Wheeler), wherein the bride and groom can be seen exiting All Saint’s Chapel in Windsor Great Park, where they got married. The 31-year-old Beatrice looks practically radiant in the vintage ivory Peau de Soie taffeta dress, designed by Norman Hartnell. Interestingly, Queen Elizabeth wedding gown was also famously crafted by the renowned designer.
The dress was expertly remodeled by Queen’s trusted dressmakers, Angela Kelly and Stewart Parvin, who trimmed it with ivory Duchess satin, decorated it with diamonds, and added organza sleeves, a nod to Beatrice’s mother, Sarah Ferguson’s wedding gown in 1986.
As for the mesmerizing diamond fringe tiara, it was originally made in 1919 by Garrard and Co. for Queen Mary from the diamonds embedded in a necklace gifted to her by Queen Victoria on her wedding.
As reported by People, the timeless tiara “is arguably the most sentimental [piece] lent from the Queen yet, for a very special reason.” “The Queen saved this grand tiara specifically for Beatrice. It was always reserved for her as they are exceptionally close,” as shared by a source with the outlet.
While U.K. jeweler Shaun Leane designed Beatrice’s ring, Mapelli Mozzi’s vintage gold band is Josh Collins work.
The beautiful ceremony, which we reported was attended by Beatrice’s parents, Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew, plus 20 close friends and family, was officiated by The Reverend Canon Paul Wright and The Reverend Canon Martin Poll, with Mapelli Mozzi’s young son, Wolfie, present as the groom’s best man and page boy.
As per reports, The Queen was “the guest of honour” and immense precautions were taken by those attending the ceremony, especially because of the monarch’s dwindling health and age which makes her most susceptible to contracting COVID-19.
The bouquet Princess Beatrice carried, as seen in the wedding photos, was compiled by Patrice Van Helden (co-owner of RVH Floral Design) following the royal tradition- it was a combination of trailing jasmine, royal ivory spray roses, pale pink and cream sweet peas, pink o’hara garden roses, pink waxflower, baby pink astilbe, and sprigs of myrtle.
In short, dreamy!!!
