beautiful bride, as expected. I'll be interested in seeing the front of her gown when she leaves the Chapel. I *think* the gown reminds me of Princess Alexandra of Kent's gown -- at least what I could see from the front.

I'm rather disappointed in Princess Michael's outfit --- I have no idea what she was thinking!

You could see in this photograph that the neckline and front silhouette of the gown is certainly reminiscent of Princess Alexandra's wedding gown. Lovely!

I heartily approve of the flowers & plants too. They look exactly like our hedgerows & gardens right now. I'm a huge fan of using British, seasonal flowers & plants so if this wedding has used them (it appears it has) it has a thumbs-up from me.

She is a beautiful bride. Absolutely love her dress, but have to say I'm not a fan of such a heavy veil with this gown. However, that is something small, but she is absolutely lovely.

As expected, Lady Gabriella was stunning. The dress was perfectly-fitted. I liked delicate embroidery on the dress fabric and intricate hairstyle. I am surprised that the dress was made by Luisa Beccaria, an Italian fashion designer.

Personifying elusive French chic, Caroline Sieber was the best-dressed guest among non-British guests.

Years ago I would have drooled over this look, now I think it is too much. But that is because my preferences have changed.

Are there any video clips available of guests and bride arriving to the chapel?

I was also wondering this... and also the duke of
Kent and possible duchess of Kent? They both attended Harry’s wedding and possibly eugenies

I’m sure we will see more photographs on Instagram of the younger royals. Flora Amelia zenouska etc

the 'Duke of Kent had a duty in Athens today. Wonder why it was planned for this day. As for the Duchess perhaps she has arrived at an entrance where no photgraphers where.

I love Gabriella's dress & she looks stunning in it. The detail on the top layer is superb, especially towards the hem.

Thanks for the video footage

I agree with the view that Lady Gabriella looks very lovely on the day, though I too am not a super fan of the overly lacy look. I like her veil, but I need to get a better look of how it moves with her dress in video footage.

From what I can see of the bridesmaids and pageboys, no. The little girls' dresses are too much on them, kinda similar to the too much fabric-sack look of Meghan's little bridesmaids' dresses, but at least those weren't as long and overwhelming as these. The styling of the pageboys' outfits for Lady Gabriella is nice, but IMO, the white is too much against the white of the little girls' dresses.

There is definitely a referencing by Lady Gabriella of Princess Alexandra's wedding dress from 1964:

https://orderofsplendor.blogspot.com...xandra-of.html

Princess Alexandra's wedding dress is so dated looking. Even in 1964, it was dated! The above Order of Splendor article provides interesting background about the making of Princess Alexandra's dress.

ETA:
After seeing the video, I think the little bridesmaids' dresses are styled much nicer than the ones Meghan's bridesmaids wore. The only thing is I think the skirts on the bridesmaids dresses today are a bit too long. Otherwise, pretty styling.

Lady Gabriella's dress is very pretty, but nothing unique. It's cut in a classic style, with all the oomph coming from the embroidery and scalloped hem, there's certainly nothing original in the cut of the gown. I will say I'm not a huge fan of this much embroidery paired with the veil: she needed to do one or the other, elaborate detail on the dress, simple, sheer veil to allow the dress to shine, or heavier veil over a very simple dress.

I like the little bridesmaids and pages outfits; those are a lot more successful and flattering than most. There's nothing sweeter than little bridesmaids in white or cream with flower wreaths.
