It seems this is a wedding dress that really divides people's opinions. I personally love it.

I agree that the material looks rather heavy for a summer wedding. But I love the design, which probably wouldn't work with lighter material.

Late spring/early summer. Looks like it was about 17-20 C in Granada for the wedding and quite windy. Though I couldn't imagine the thicker fabric later in the summer, I don't think it would be too bad right now.

No family tiara on the bride? i am struggling to recall what the family looks like?

Has the designer of the dress been confirmed? Some had suggested Erdem? It seemed a very heavy material for a summer wedding in Spain.

Bit surprised she didn't wear the family tiara or some jewels. But they had a pretty relaxed dress code and she maybe didn't want to over do it.

The family tiara (main one at least)

I notice when her older brother Arthur married Jemma Kidd, she wasn't leant the tiara to wear either.

Cant find picture's of Honor's wedding to Orlando Montagu so not sure if she wore the tiara. The other two Wellesley kids are unmarried.


According to Hello, the dress is Emilia Wickstead

I didn't realize until now why James Blunt was there. I just thought he was one of many celebrities. I didn't realize his wife Sofia and Charlotte are first cousins. Sofia's father John is Arthur's younger brother (the third of four sons of the 8th Duke).

Lady Charlotte Wellesley and Alejandro Santo Domingo are very distant cousins.

The dresscode was very relaxed. High society Spanish weddings are often posh with jacquet (morning coat), long dresses, mantillas, peinetas and other festive looks. Nothing of all this, it was cosy and casual, no matter the couple both belonging to the happy few in society.

The bride's dress was absolutely STUNNING. She looks like a medieval princess. It's the best wedding gown I've seen in a very long time. It's obvious the bride put a lot of thought into matching her dress to the venue. She looks lovely.

I've been looking at photos for two days and this is the first time I've seen Tatiana and Andrea. I thought perhaps they hadn't been invited. Tatiana, as usual, looks like she's headed to a funeral and forgot to brush her hair. Camilla looked nice as did most of the guests. Overall, a very nice wedding.

That dress was splendid! I wonder how much it and the veil weighed? It certainly looked heavy.
But the style was excellent and she was a gorgeous bride.

I disagree, I think it's magnificent It looks very elegant, almost royal, very no-arrivistes-need-apply

I wish she'd worn a tiara, and the material was more suited for Fall, but it's still a gorgeous dress imo.

Not sure about the third page boy and second flower girl, but three of the kids are her niece and nephews. Her brother Arthur and Jemma Kidd's children. The twins Arthur and Mae are 6, and the little blonde toddler is their 2 year old brother Alfred.

Not sure about the other 2. Seem to be a bit young to be her other niece and nephew. Honor's kids Walter and Nancy are 11 and 9, and the oldest flower girl and page boy don't look that old, perhaps I am wrong. Maybe some Santo Domingo relatives, Alejandro's full brother has kids.

Thanks to those who shared the photos and videos of the wedding. I like Lady Charlotte's dress a lot, it's rather elegant and beautiful. I agree with mslewis in that she looks like a medieval princess. It seems to be quite cold in Granada, since her dress appears to be thick and the sky looks gloomy.
I liked the list of guests too, it was impressive.
