Lady Sarah is a painter, not a stay at home mom. She's exhibited some of her work, and some can be seen on the internet. I must admit I'm not a fan of her artwork, but someone once told me that's fairly successful, so it must just not be to my taste.

I must confess I am a big fan of this generation of British Royal Family. The way I see it Sarah and Daniel, Serena and David and Helen and Tim they all choose to make their Royal Wedding a personal and intimate affair. This generation is not so formal as their parents' generation and not so informal as the next generation. So when I refer to them I say they are "the equilibrated members of British Royal Family" .

And I've always kept this pictures as cherished moments of elegance, nobility and good taste.

And in some details of the cerimony you can see that this, in case of Sarah, fragile-looking Lady made her point about what she wanted for her own wedding.

If you feel that I am boring you in posting this "old" pictures please let me know. Thank you in advance.



Sarah and Daniel wedding was attended by the British Royal Family, with exception to Dukes of York.

The bride choose not to have Royal Carriage, Red Carpet or Sound of Bells ringing.
The cerimony only took 30 minutes and the newlyweds caught everyone by surprise leaving the church unannounced. Even the driver wasn't at his place which made the couple laugh while waited for the car to show.

The church was chosen by the couple that wanted a romantic and intimate place to get married. Only 200 people could attend to their wedding, and the children were not invited due to the dimensions of the place.

The wedding gown was designed byJasper Conran, the bride's favourite designer, who also designed the bridesmaids dresses.

The bridesmaids were: Lady Frances Armstrong-Jones, Zara Philips and Tara Noble Singh.

The groom was so worried about being pontual that arrived to church 1 hour and half before the beggining of cerimony.

The bride entered the church under the sound of religious himn "Ye Holy Angels Bright".
The cerimony was adapted from the "Book of Common Prayer" of 1928. Still the bride didn't promisse to obey her husband nor to adore him with her body.
The musics played during the cerimony were "Jesus Shall Reign Where'er The Sun" and "Alleluia! Sing to Jesus".
After their marriage promisses the couple exchanged gold simple bands and after the blessing left the church.

Afterwards there was a reception at Clarence House which Diana didn't attend and didn't pose for the wedding official photo.

Their honeymoon was in Bombay.

I like her dress. I would have preferred a different head piece but the veil was nice. Her dress reminds me a lot of mette marits.

It was sweet to put her younger half-sister in so prominently.

I wonder if Zara will do the same for her half-sister.

The couple, both painters, were married in St. Stephen's Walbrook, a small 17th-century church in London built by Sir Christopher Wren.
Reporters were kept at bay, so few details about the ceremony or the reception at Clarence House, the home of the Queen Mother in London, were available.

Every once in a while you see a bride that looks as good as she can look, with the most perfect, elegant dress, not a wrong note anywhere in the wedding, and you say "wow." Sarah was one of those brides. I'm a great admirer. She lives her life well.

This was one of my favourite royal weddings as well. Very tasteful and lovely. I love the dresses, especially the bright pink flowers in the hair of the bridesmaids. Princess Anne looks lovely as well.

I've always loved Lady Sarah's dress. I would love to copy it or have something similar to hers whenever I get married. Its a very pretty dress & timeless.

Question....who is Tara Noble Singh? I know who Lady Frances & Zara are but I've never heard of Tara. I'm assuming a friend of the family....former classmate.....relative of some sort to either the bride or the groom.

Thanks for the pics I said before I LOVE her dress (& even the bridesmaids dresses)....I have the PEOPLE magazine (somewhere) that features Lady Sarah's wedding

The photographs of Sarah and her bridesmaids all together are stunning. The bridesmaids are exactly that - not little cute, but useless, flower girls and not middle aged women like you get over here (and Mary Donaldson's sisters are a good example of royal bridesmaids too old). The"bride's" "maids" look lovely in their complimentary dresses and with their lovely roses and they are old enough to help Sarah with her train. The best photos of all weddings and I think Mette Marit's designer took inspiration from this dress; though they said that the design was based on Queen Maud's dresses it certainly looks like a copy of Sarah's to me.
Thanks for the photos- I haven't seen as many elsewhere.
