Those pictures are lovely, especially the ones taken outside on the Windsor beautiful gardens - that looks like a lovely place.

The Queens attendance intrigues me - I dont recall her attending the wedding of Ella's brother Lord Frederick, and certainly I can't remember her attending the weddings of the Gloucester children - definitely not Davina's but I can't remember her being at Rose or Earl of Ulster's


Is it more a diary clash for previous weddings or the size of them?

Looks like Gabriella was a witness at the wedding of Aurelia's parents

The Weddings of the Gloucester children where smaller affairs probably this has also something to do with. And to add that this Wedding and the one of Lady Helen (which she also attended) both took place at Windsor.

I much prefer Lady Gabriella's formal wedding group picture to Harry and Eugenie's, it's nice and balanced in the centre of the room whereas H and E's were taken in a random corner and they just didn't look right to me.

Thanks for the photos!
They are lovely. I have to say that Lady Gabriella reminds me of Northern European ethereal beauties.

This wedding was at Windsor, and the Queen has never missed a wedding at Windsor.

(But it has also been reported that she is very fond of Gabriella).

I wonder if part of it is the ease for HM and also for security reasons?

Attending a wedding at Windsor is easy to attend for HM unless she is away overseas and also is probably easier to secure than other locations. Windsor always has its own security around it whereas when other venues might not and therefore if HM attends it creates a bigger "fuss".

Anyway, glad to see HM at this.

Thank you, Iceflower, for the official photos. They are beautiful.
I love the one in The Duchess of Kent's Drawing Room. That is special and captures a nice shot of everyone. What relationship to Gabriella is that Duchess of Kent?
Sweet that Maud and Isabella sit at their grandmother's feet.
Is there any significance in the the paintings on the wall behind the wedding group?

The photos in the Frogmore gardens are also lovely. Is the Mausoleum associated with The Duchess of Kent?

How nice for the names and details to be released.

The Duchess of Kent that is associated with the Drawing Room at Frogmore House and one of the mausoleums outside, was Queen Victoria's mother. She was also named Victoria and was married to King George III's son Edward Duke of Kent.

She died in 1861 and was great great great grandmother to Queen Elizabeth and to her cousins the present Duke of Kent and his younger brother Prince Michael of Kent, Gabriella's father. It's a bit hard to see the portraits but one of them is probably Queen Victoria's mother as a young woman.

So Gabriella had her wedding picture taken in her great, great, great great grandmother's drawing room, how lovely!

It is interesting to see the room.
We've seen wedding photos in the Windsor Castle Green and White Drawing Rooms and in Buckingham Palace. Have any other royal wedding photos been taken in The Duchess of Kent's Drawing Room?
Hugo Burnand, the same photographer was used by Prince William and Prince Charles and he has a good eye.

Peter Phillips' official wedding pictures were taken in Frogmore House but I'm not sure in what room.

For Harry's wedding, the problem may well have been an uneven number of people between the bride and the groom's side to photograph., and hence the need for artistic corners.

I much prefer Hugo Burnand's wedding photography style as well. More formal but bright family photos less fashion photography vibe.

I think Eugenie and Harry's photographers also took amazing shots.
I love the moody depth of the Green Drawing Room in the official photos of Harry and Meghan taken by Alexi Lubomirski and Meghan's veil was stunning in the church photo by Danny Lawson. That Green Drawing room was warmly embracing for the Queen's 90th birthday photos too.
Eugenie's group photos were more casual but happiness bubbled over. Alex Bramall did well.
It's a career high for any wedding photographer to cover a royal wedding and very nice of the couples to release some for public perusal.

The green drawing room in particular is lovely but I didn't like how the photographers placed their subjects in H and E's photographs. They didn't make the most of the lovely setting those rooms provide as everyone was just kind of standing in a random corner and in E's case the door was lying open behind them too which I also didn't like.
