Harry who? Carefree Chelsy Davy arrives at Alnwick Castle to rehearse maid of honour duties for tomorrow's society wedding... and her Royal ex is coming too:
Chelsy Davy arrives at Alnwick Castle Northumberland for Lady Melissa Percy wedding - Prince Harry arrives tomorrow with Cressida Bonas | Mail Online

I'm just guessing the posts about the Percy & Staubenzee wedding will be on this forum.

Alnwick Castle what a setting for Melissa Percy & Tom van Straubenzee's wedding. Harry Potter magic and all.

The wedding route-

"The Gazette has been told that guests have to be seated by 4pm and the wedding will take place at 5pm."

I can't wait to see the pictures from this.

(Surprised Prince Charles isn't a guest; he is supposed to be BFF with the Duchess).

My photo of Lady Melissa and Thomas van Straubenzee. Wishing them a wonderful day. #AlnwickWedding

Beautiful picture of the couple.

Thank You for the information.
Are they supposed to broadcast church ceremony?
Interesting, as I don't remember live coverage of her eldest sister's wedding.

Its a local newspaper, so it will just be a running commentary of the comings and goings, plus pix.

Take it back, they are running a video but I really will be surprised if they are allowed in the church during the service.

The groom, Tom is in the front, I believe.

In a peplum dress, feathers and hair up.

Beatrice and Eugenie, and I think Cressida!

The Northumberland Gazette is saying these are bridesmaids (you will love it or hate it) :lol:

William attended without Kate.

Yes, indeed, Melissa is like coming from another romanticised epoch.
Even though, I like more her sister as a bride. Melissa is proud daughter of her father, she just can't stop being overwhelmed by emotions.

Dman 06-22-2013 12:41 PM

I like that it's such a community event. They try to make sure that everyone enjoy the wedding day. Instead of having everything so private that the people outside can't see anything.

You've got to be prepared for the English weather.

Congratulations to the couple!
Lady Melissa looked lovely. The tiara is magnificent.

i agree - do we know the provenance of this tiara. It is different than the one her sister wore on her wedding day. However the necklace is the same.

A very nice piece.

I don't like it; it overwhelms Melissa!

She would have looked better in a more delicate tiara.

Love the children's costumes, but the adult bridesmaids' dresses are not very attractive, imo.

cepe 06-22-2013 04:15 PM

she needed bigger hair

soapstar 06-22-2013 04:57 PM

Yeah, I think the tiara is too big for Melissa. Something smaller would have looked so much better. I also agree about the bridesmaids dresses. I don't like the color or the style.
