A first glimpse at Princess Beatrice’s stunning wedding dress has been revealed.
The vintage dress was on loan from the Queen, and refitted by Her Majesty’s dress maker, Angela Kelly, and Stewart Parvin.
The dress is made from Peau De Soie taffeta in shades of ivory, trimmed with ivory Duchess satin, with organza sleeves and is encrusted with diamanté with a geometric checkered bodice.
The 31-year-old princess also borrowed the same tiara worn by the Queen on her wedding day to Prince Philip.
The tiara was made for Queen Mary by Garrard and Co. in 1919, from a diamond necklace given by Queen Victoria for her wedding.
Her bouquet was made up of trailing jasmine, pale pink and cream sweet peas, royal porcelain ivory spray roses, pink o’hara garden roses, pink wax flower and baby pink astible. It was placed on the tomb of the unknown soldier in Westminster Abbey after, in line with royal tradition.
The images were released the day after it was announced that Princess Beatrice had married Italian property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a private ceremony at Windsor Castle.
The palace said: “Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice of York and Mr. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi were married in a small family ceremony on Friday 17th July. The ceremony took place at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor, with the kind permission of Her Majesty The Queen.
“The couple decided to hold a small private ceremony with their parents and siblings following the postponement of their wedding in May. Working within government guidelines, the service was in keeping with the unique circumstances while enabling them to celebrate their wedding with their closest family.”
The bride’s ring was designed by Shaun Leane, while the groom’s is a vintage gold band designed by Josh Collins.
Beatrice and Mozzi said they were “delighted” to share the photographs and sent their thanks to the gardening teams at The Savill Garden and Windsor Great Park.
The couple had been due to get married on 29 May at the Chapel Royal in St James’s Palace in London, followed by a reception in the garden of Buckingham Palace. However, the service was postponed due to the coronavirus.
Due to the recent relaxation of lockdown rules, wedding ceremonies are currently allowed in England, but with no more than 30 people in attendance.
