Yes, Princess Alexandra attended. I didn’t see The Duchess of Kent though. I don’t think she attended.

Some of the press has got this wrong today.
The official British royal family web page said Marina wore this tiara at her wedding.

The boys are wearing very pale pink sashes around their waists which match the bridesmaids dresses which are the very palest shade of pink.

Interesting re the pale pink color you are describing for the bridesmaid's dresses and the boys' waist sashes. The color doesn't come through at all in videos. But that's often the case. I went back to look at the photo, and the palest of pinks for the dresses and the sashes shows up, but not unless you know to look for it. It's probably more noticeable in person.

Right. This article clears up the confusion:
The Kent City of London Fringe Tiara | The Court Jeweller

"... Marina didn't actually wear the [City of London] tiara on her wedding day. She wore a nearly identical diamond fringe tiara..."

Princess Marina wore a fringe kokoshnik tiara of Russian origin (her mother had Russian heritage) on her wedding day. And the City of London gave Marina as a wedding gift, a fringe tiara that resembles the kokoshnik tiara Marina wore on her wedding day, but it's not the same tiara.

So, it's the City of London Kent fringe tiara that Princess Alexandra and Princess Michael wore, and that was passed on to Lady Gabriella for her big day.

I love Luisa Beccaria as a designer (she would have been great for Eugenia too) so I really like Ella’s dress. Nothing groundbreaking but it’s very sweet and fits her very well.

Lovely to see the tiara too!

And nice to see the family out in force. Surprised Eugenie didn’t show and really surprise Kate didn’t either.

Wish Ella and her husband a lovely wedding day/evening and many happy returns!

It looks almost identical to William and Kate's cake-which isn't a criticism, it's beautiful.

Even the press office at Buckingam Palace got it wrong as they mentioned in their Release about the bridal gown etc. that the tiara worn by Gabriella was also worn by her grandmother Princess Marina on her wedding Day.

The wedding looked like a lovely spring ceremony and I adored all the seasonal flowers (wonderful to see lily-of-the-valley and hydrangea, which are some of my favourites, included amongst them!). Gabriella and Tom seem like a lovely couple who appear to be very happy with each other - I loved the photo of them cutting the cake provided by Flora Ogilvy!
Really nice to see Estella Taylor as a special attendant too - I wondered if they would be attendants since they're now a little old for bridesmaids.

Love the fringe tiara but it needed to be worn at a higher angle or it looses its sparkling airiness a fools a bit like a kokoshnik headband.

I love that she gave a nod to her aunt in the style of her gown as it she looked beautiful in it but there was something about th veil . . . too voluminous perhaps and accentuated by the flair of the gown?

The bridesmaids definitely seemed to have a blush of pink and pageboys trousers had the merest wash of lavender blue.

The Queen looked as she always does at royal weddings, happy and bright with her usual jewellery. Prince Philip looks to be in almost 'rude health'. Retirement suits him well. When I saw the photo of him with Archie I thought he looked years younger and at the wedding he seemed to move with more freedom.

The Queen looked so animated outside the church today and looks equally delighted in this picture. I get the impression that Ella is a family member whom Her Majesty is very fond of

Sorry, but I don't think they look alike at all.

This wedding makes me so happy though. The decoration outside the St. George's Chapel were perfect, clothing for the boys and girls simply perfect, bright colors, very classic. The dress was stunning, simple and elegant, but also very fit for the venue and occasion (a big plus for the perfect fit on the bride too!). And the tiara, just beautiful.

Lady Gabriella made a very beautiful, very happy and stunning bride.

There do seem to be differing opinions on Marina's wedding tiara--

"Her long tulle veil was topped by a tiara, still then not a requirement for a British royal bride as we think of it now. Some cite this as one belonging to her mother, some as the Kent City of London Fringe Tiara, one of her wedding gifts."

The shapes are different. It looks like Tom and Gabriella's is decorated with real flowers versus William & Kate's frosting, fondant, gum paste decorations.

Traditional wedding cakes tend to have many similarities. They differ more when the couple goes non-traditional.

On a much smaller scale obviously, but without even knowing initially that the same baker made them I noticed a strong similarity between both cakes.

Its white and multi tiered what else???

William and Kate had multiple shaped tiers, and a base that was multiple cakes. Dripping in adornment and covered in fake flowers.

Gabriella's was all circular, and with very little adornment on it, just some real flowers.

That's quite a lovely photo of Lady Gabriella warmly clasping hands with her cousin, the Queen. As always, the Queen looks bright and cheerful in the melon outfit. And she's beaming, seeing yet another young relation tie the knot.

Because the tiaras are nearly identical is surely the reason for most of the confusion. Additional passage from Court Jeweler article I already linked above:
"Some sources claim that Marina secured her bridal veil with the City of London Fringe Tiara, but Marina didn't actually wear that particular tiara on her wedding day. She wore another very similar diamond fringe tiara: the Vladimir Fringe Tiara, which she borrowed from her mother, Princess Nicholas of Greece and Denmark."
