Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg & Gotha - 1840

Queen Victoria & Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha
February 10, 1840, Chapel Royal, St. James Palace

The Dress: Queen Victoria wore a creamy-white silk satin ball gown trimmed with Honiton lace and orange blossoms. The gown had a fitted, pointed bodice, full-skirt and a train attached at the waist. She wore flat shoes of white satin trimmed with bands of ribbon. Long ribbon ties fastened around the ankles held the shoes in place. They were made by Gundry and Son, Boot and Shoemakers to the Queen. Her wedding attire has been regarded as the ideal traditional wedding gown which has influenced brides since then and will for years to come.

The Diademe: She chose a wreath of orange blossoms to wear in her hair.

The Veil: She wore a handmade Honiton lace veil.

The Attendants: Her 12 bridesmaids were similarly attired in shades of white.

Memorable Details: Queen Victoria recorded in her journal on Monday, February 10, 1840, "I wore a satin gown with a very deep flounce of Honiton lace, imitation of old. I wore my Turkish diamond necklace
and earrings, and Albert's beautiful sapphire brooch." Queen Victoria married her cousin, Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha in the Chapel Royal, St James’s.

Paintings and drawings of their wedding may not be accurate but it's not difficult to visualize their grand but elegant wedding ceremony.

Gorgeous pictures, thank you! They were a truly wonderful couple, who in spite of the limitations of their roles, found true love..... As a result, when Prince Albert left the world so prematurely, Her Majesty, Queen Victoria was devastated beyond words.
The price of true Love is Divine Pain. But it is not easy to bear....

Princes tend not to have a 'best man', they have a 'supporter' or supporters. Prince Albert's were his father and brother.

Best man is just a modern form for supporter.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday: Queen Victoria's Gown

A gown that was beautiful for it's time. I think this is a very beautiful and romantic wedding dress. I love the over the shoulder design and the lace details. I thought it was a lovely idea to put flowers on her hair.

I have always loved Queen Victoria's wedding gown. But I do agree that it is an historic piece. However, I wonder if it is another wedding dress that Catherine drew inspiration from as I see elements of the skirt (but also the lace on top) of Victoria's dress that were reflected in Catherine's.

The Archbishop of Canterbury asked Victoria if she wanted the word "obey" to be deleted from her wedding vows.
The Queen insisted it remain.
To the young Queen Victoria, the symbol of the union was the ring, which Prince Albert slipped on her finger as the guns fired a royal salute.
The Times claimed that the traditional band of gold 'appeared more solid than is usual in ordinary weddings'.

Certainly a huge helping of Grace Kelly's dress . Though not as much as Chantal MIller's.
