Pippa Arrived with her Father in a 1951 Jaguar. Love this! 

Her dress was a lace dress by Giles Deacon.  She wore a tulle veil with pearls by Stephen JonesMaidenhair fern tiara by Robinson Pelham, and shoes by Manolo Blahnik with pearls.

 Here are the princes arriving for the event. 

Carol Middleton (Mother of the bride) and James (her brother) arrive.  I love Carol’s pretty pink outfit.

Princess Eugenie arriving below. I love her dress!

Roger Federer and Mikka arriving…

Pippa posing for photographers with her beautiful veil.

Here you see Duchess Kate and Princess Charlotte watching her sister get out to the car!

You can see here the heart shaped detail in the back.

Ah, here is the Duchess… apparently in charge of the pageboys and bridesmaids. 

 Pippa and James look so happy!  Her dress is so pretty.

How cute are the pageboys’ outfits!

Cute picture showing the backs of the bridesmaids’ dresses.

 And look at her arms! Someone has been lifting weights!

 Here is the little Prince George hamming it up for the cameras. 

 Prince George and Princess Charlotte holding a cute heart shaped bouquet of flowers.

 The Duchess is wearing a retro inspired piece, honestly not in the most flattering color for her, but it isn’t her day and kudos for her for not upstaging it! It does match the flowergirls too!

 I liked this picture as you can see the lace of her dress in better detail and her pretty hairdo as well.

Of course it’s hard not to compare the wedding to her sister’s! 

A vintage WWII Spitfire fighter flew over the guests. There are only 50 of these left in the world!

Her wedding looked beautiful.  

So I had no idea who James Mathews is! He is a former race car driver and now a hedge fund manager worth over $2 billion!  I see no expense was spared at this wedding!

Here is a look at inside her reception… WOW!!

I love this! 

 This is like a fairytale!

How cute are they driving away in a Jaguar E (apparently a priceless car!)

 So cute!!

Congrats to the happy couple!

      Oh me too, I loved all of these pics! I have seen them well everywhere (ok not everywhere, but in the British tabloids!) and I just love it all! What I find the most interesting is that the Brits all seem to have a wedding in the morning which is unlike a lot of weddings here in the USA!
