Finised my exam paper today, got home and switched on the TV just in time to catch a glimpse of Kate Middleton got into Rolls Royce on her way to Westminster Abbey. I seriously thought I miss the whole ceremony since the NTV 7 started the live program at 3.30pm.
My timing couldn't be more perfect. The whole holy matrimony service was lovely and beautiful. Westminster Abbey is magnificently beautiful, decorated with 8 English maple trees which signify "RESERVE and HUMILTY" for the wedding. I was so nervous when Kate walked down the aisle with her father, Michael Middleton. I felt like a proud mother watching her own daughter getting married. Drama queen much, eh? Admit it, I know you guys felt the same way too.
Kate's wedding dress is beautiful. The lace, the train, the veil, I love everything. Her wedding dress is by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen and the lace on her dress was embroidered at Hampton Court Palace. Her train is 2.7 meters long! Her satin shoes which we didn't get to see was hand embroidered with lace by Royal School of Needlework.
One word, gorgeous isn't she <3
Her tiara is the tiara that given by George VI to his wife, the late Queen Mother in 1936. She had her hair down, it was styled by James Pryce at Richard Ward Saloon. After the ceremony, the newlywed were escorted leaving Abbey in a 1902 open-topped state landau carriage to the Palace. Among the guests at the wedding ceremony are Sir Elton John with David Furnish, the Beckhams, Rowan Atkinson, Sultan of Brunei, Earl Spencer, the brother of the late Princess Diana and Prince Harry girlfriend (ex?) Chelsy Davy.
At the Palace, the beaming newlywed made the popular balcony appearance to the massive crowds. With the popular balcony appearance, how could they forget the kiss!
Crowd-friendly newlywed sealed their wedding with not just a kiss but two
After the first kiss, the crowd were chanting "Kiss her again" and the Prince William turned to Kate for another light kiss. Awwww, I'm melting.... This wedding is the fairy tale wedding that a girl ever dreamed of. Watching the wedding live made me felt like I'm in part of wedding though I was a thousand miles away. I don't know them personally but I feel so happy for them.
The newlywed first wedding gift was from Queen Elizabeth. The Queen gifted them as Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. From a commoner to Duchess, that's impressive! But what's important is Kate is marrying the love of her life after being together for a decade. Here's a toast for the newlywed, congratulation for the royal wedding, may the road ahead as man and wife is paved with happiness and joy for them.
"Marriage should transform as husband and wife make one another their work of art"- Lord Bishop of London.
