It's hard to believe that Edward and Sophie have been married 7 yrs. Time does fly! I loved their wedding it was a beautiful ceremony and the bride was stunning. thanks to everyone who shared their wedding pics with all of us. I forgot how beautiful it was.

Edward and Sophie wanted a small private family wedding. It became problematic when they expressed a desire to use St. George's Chapel as the venue. It was pointed out to them that they should at least invite enough people to fill it. The wedding was at first not meant to be televised - but than News corps said Edward wanted to sell the rights through his own television company so Buckingham Palace said it would go to the BBC. This was something that quiet upset about. It is important to note that Edward and Sophie are not interested in doing things like playing public affection and kissing on balconies for the sake of the media and public. This a private marriage, not a public soap opera - indifferent of whom they are and who his parents are.

Several foreign royals were invited. But as Edward and Sophie were adament that only friends would be attending only royals that fell into that category attended. It was said that Edward personally wrote letters to the heads of other royals family explaining his need for a small wedding and saying that it was not meant as a snub or anything. Apparently Queen Beatrice wrote a very sympathic letter back congradulating him on his steadfastness to not let his life became a faust.

There is a list of guests at House Wessex. It is by no means complete - but does show the royals. Tony and Cherie Blair were not invited as were no political figures. Except one of Edward's oldest friends who happens to be a Conservative consulor. Odd considering that today - Gordon Brown's wife and David Cameron's wife are regular visitors to Bagshot park and their husbands even have to content with each other at dinner parties.

Sophie's tiara...is it one that was designed for the wedding by Edward or is it a family tiara? I have the Majesty Magazine from their wedding, but I can't find it right now & I can't remember if they talked about the tiara in the issue.
I love how their wedding was intimate & even though it was "large" it was filled with people they wanted & not people that they had to invite.
They look so happy & the family looks happy as well.

As far as I know the tiara was given to her by the Queen.So it should be a famly tiara. Edward designed the necklace and earrings himself..as a present for Sophie

I remember reading that about the earrings & necklace....I just couldn't place the tiara. I like the style of the tiara (gives me some ideas for whenever I get married )

I liked her dress a lot too. But, it seemed a little big on her, as if she lost more weight after the last fitting.

I may be wrong here but, it appears Sophie had the veil covering her face at first, I thought you only did that when you were a virgin on your wedding day?

No all brides can cover their face it is part of tradition some do some choose not to.

In a royal wedding, it's the royal status of the bride before marriage that makes the difference between whether she has her veil over her face or not. Princesses don't have their faces covered (check out photos of Princesses Elizabeth, Margaret, Alexandra, and Anne before their weddings) whereas it's more usual for a non-royal bride marrying into the royal family to arrive at church with her veil over her face.

I thought the setting was wonderful. St. George's chapel is very lovely. The sight of the three brothers strolling to the chapel gave the event a more relaxed feeling than previous British Royal weddings.

As to Sophie's dress, I think that it could have been wonderful if it fit her better. It did look like she was being swallowed up by it, much like Princess Letizia's gown did to her. Of the recent British royal weddings I think that Lady Helen and Lady Sarah had the most beautiful gowns.

I read once that Anne put the veil over her face just before she went to the altar, though she hadn't had it before. I've never seen pics of Anne's ceremony, though.

I too enjoyed seeing Princes Charles, Andrew & Edward walking to the chapel. It was a wonderful site to see. I think it did give the wedding a relaxed feel & was a nice touch. St. George's seemed to fit them- I don't think it would have had the same feel if it had been anywhere else.

The Earl of Snowdon is Edward godfather.

And even if he wasn't it is Edward and Sophie wedding they can invite who they want, there is no reason to get angry about it.

Princess Margaret is in the big group picture she is beside Sophie's father.

I have read that Edward didn't trust Sarah to keep her mouth shut about anything.
