The dress is lovely, but the lace arms were a bit much. Her bust is much too small for such a gown, too. Plus, I think she should've worn her hair up. For some reason, brides who wear their hair down just don't look right to me.

Anyway, that said, I do like her makeup, her veil, and the dress' skirt really was stunning. What's all this I hear about Princess Eugenie arriving in an insanely bright outfit though? I have not yet seen photos of her, but the way she's been described it sounded as though she was trying to steal the limelight. For shame! Not on someone's wedding day!

I don't care for the bridal gown at all. The neckline is too low-cut, and not at all flattering for her bustline. The skirt is too big. I am also surprised by her choice of gown. It wasn't a style that I expected to see her wear. The tiara is very nice, and I am also incredibly curious about Princess Eugenie's outfit.

Are the jacket and the gown one piece or is it a loose jacket just like Autumn Kelly wore for her wedding to Peter Phillips?

It looks like it is all one piece it is o.k just too low cut. I think it matched the setting of the wedding.

It looks to me like it's a separate lace shrug like Autumn's, probably so she could be covered in the chapel but have bare shoulders at the reception.

There are parts of her dress I am not too keen on but overall she looks beautiful. The main thing I noticed about the pictures is how over the moon they look with each other. Despite the best efforts of one particular newspaper to try an spoil it they seem to have pulled off a lovely, private, and dignified wedding day.

P.S. Much as I enjoyed looking at pictures of the Phillips' wedding at the time the Hello deal in retrospect does look a bit tacky when you compare it to how this one has been done. Just my opinion.

By the way, could anyone identify the tiara?
Lack of royals is not surprising at all. I expected the Kent family and their children to be in attendance. It is nice to see Princess Eugenie attending the ceremony. I hope we shall be able to see photos of Lady Helen Taylor, who usually is a smart dresser.
I'm totally shocked by the low neckline of the wedding dress,too.And I totally dislike the way the couple posed Personally,I can't find anything regal about them.Fortunately,Princess Michael and Gabriella saved the day,they were both stunning

The link from Emeralds & Opals won't work for me but I think this is it -

BBC NEWS | UK | Windsor marries Peep Show actress

The son of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, Lord Frederick Windsor, has married actress Sophie Winkleman in the Chapel Royal at Hampton Court Palace.

The bride, best known for her role as Big Suze in TV's Peep Show, admitted she "wept throughout the whole thing"

Lord Frederick is 31st in line so I suppose we can say this was more of a society/family affair rather than a royal wedding.

If this is a 'fairytale style' wedding dress, then it's the 'Barbie Bride' kind of fairytale, and terribly old-fashioned in its own way - indeed looking as if made for some 'Dynasty' series season finale, ca. 1985.
I don't find the amount of cleavage shocking, but quite unnecessary for a bride.
The official wedding pictures are photographed beautifully against the outline of the Hampton Court facade.

Why is there no picture of Eugenie? I mean on the link above they can describe her outfit in details, that proves that if they had the time to notice what she was wearing then they must have had the time to take pictures of her, right?

I would guess that there were no photographers permitted inside Hampton Court Palace as the guests were arriving and leaving. So far the photos we have seen were ones taken outside Lady Annabel Goldsmith's house and the photos of the couple posed in front of (I would guess) a selected photographer.

More the style produced for the british Sindy doll than her American equivalent. Beautifully understated rather than the grotesque figure hugging styles apparently favoured by some!

As I expected Princess M. looked like a Queen. Gabriella elegant as usual but I'm not so happy about her choice of colour. However both looked great as well as Lady Helen looked stunning.

I'm not so sure about Sophie's gown... Its very 80ies IMO and I expected something very different from Sophie and Freddie. I hope we will see a few more pictures... I think, they are a wonderful couple, Freddie and Sophie both are so cute.

My congratulations to them both.. She made a beautiful bride...and he, a handsome groom. Now maybe the Daily Mail can just move forward and leave them alone finally.

Guests at Windsor/Winkleman wedding

I must say I am surprised at the apparent absence of HRH Princess Alexandra. She is the groom's aunt, sister of his father Prince Michael.
No mention of her at all.
Beautiful bride, thought Lord Frederick looked great too. I found it a tad disappointing that she is the first Kent bride not to wear the fringe tiara, apart from Lady Nicholas Windsor who did not wear a tiara at all.
Beautiful earrings though, very appropriate.

Indeed. Where is/was Princess Alexandra??? I hoped for a group photograph. Maybe one will be published later.

I must say I feel like complaining to the BBC. That headline of theirs about Sophie was totally unnecessary. She has after all appeared in other roles. Or they could just have said actress. They just won't cut Princess Michael or her family any slack, not even on her son's wedding day to a lovely young lady.
