Sophie's wedding outfit consisted of a dress with a trained coat over it, together with a diamond tiara holding her veil in place.

I think that was the intention for it to have a medieval style because the wedding took place at Windsor Castle which is a very medieval type of place. I think it was a nice and different type of theme.

Yes, its a medieval type of place

I think she looked very lovely as she entered the church, the veil and tiara were absolutely beautiful. But the dress per se was a bit too simple and clean. But it was 1999 - I think fashion those days was kind of minimalism and clean chic...

I remember watching their wedding when it was on tv.

This is the first thread I've seen it reported that the coat train was detachable from the gown. From the way the media reported the wedding details albeit it was long ago, I remember it being described as a coat dress. Meaning, the train section isn't detachable.

Yes, I agree that she looked lovely. Also I love the medieval look. Her tiara apparently was made from the crown jewels and some people say that it was either a copy or parts of the Honey Suckle Tiara that was made for Princess Mary. Can anyone else confirm?

There is an article/page here... that talks about it

The theories surrounding the wedding tiara are very interesting - it's ashame that the palace do not seem willing to confirm where the tiara or the various elements of the tiara came from.

me neither... but, I don't like the tiara at all, and even those days she keeps wearing it. Maybe she hasn't another one, or maybe she just like it haha, any way, I didn't like the dress or the veil, I believe the hair is well done. BUT I DON'T LIKE THE TIARA

Not just the place, I loved the tiara and dress, veil and all exactly for being, or at least looking, medieval. It really amazes me how our opinions can differ - many people disliked Sophie's choices for the same reason.

so we conclude that Sophie can be special siometimes, her choices are not tipicals (that's how you write it right?...sorry). Maybe for the plaace and the dress and the entire medieval ambient that tiara fit just good,, but i still don't like the fact she stills wearing it, she wore that tiara at CP Victoria's wedding, and she wears many times.

But is just my humble opinion, hahaha.

Have a nice sunday :)

Oh, I wasn't referring to you in particular, Abril. You have every right not to like her choices on that special day. I've heard so many negative comments from others as well. I guess I liked the fact that she dared to differ.

Oh Noor! I never thought you were referring to me! I was just saying that Sophie is special, her choices are not bad, but aren't stunning either, just that. So don't worry darling, I am not mad, or nathing similar, I was just trying to reply that you said that this wwedding generated a lot of different comments.

I remember when they got married many people said tyhat she were going to be like Diana, but she showed to be quite different. I like her anyway, Prince Edward looked "really english" on their wedding day right? quite elegant...

When I watched the video again, I saw that Sophie's dress was essentially two: a simple dress that flowed into a short train at the back with a trained coat over it. Apparently the train was some 12' long.

Question about person at their wedding

Hello,

this may be slightly off topic, for which I apologise, but I really don't know where else to post it.

I would be grateful if somebody could tell me who was the young woman (in a pale green - I think - dress) who handed Sophie her bouquet when she was sitting in the coach, after the wedding ceremony.

She can be seen at 1:45 - 1:49 in this footage:



It's not terribly important, but I would appreciate it.

Thanks!

Or someone associated with the designer. That's what I am thinking.

I believe that's the designer herself, Samantha Shaw.
