A wedding with lots of titles

The wedding of Britain's Prince William and his darling Catherine (Kate) Middleton on the 29th of April was a living fairy tale watched by an entire world. Hastily called the “wedding of the century” it was though a stunning and opulent show, mostly because of its media coverage and the cheerful support of a celebrating nation. I admit being caught up by this modern tale of princes, but how can you not be charmed by this modern young couple that looked so genuine in their emotions?

Royal Wedding: Prince William and Catherine Middleton

Take a look at some of the photographs from the official Royal Wedding album, released on 30th April by Clarence House: "The newly-titled Duke and Duchess of Cambridge appeared to be lost in matrimonial bliss as they smiled for the traditional wedding day photo album taken by Hugo Burnand." Daily Mail Online

"Catherine Middleton stepped out in front of Westminster Abbey at 11 a.m. wearing a wedding gown designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Middleton’s dress featured an ivory lace bodice with a restrained, high lace collar, long lace sleeves and sweeping ivory satin skirts." WWD.com

What the designers think of the wedding gown: "Many cited likeness to bridal gowns worn by Queen Elizabeth and Grace Kelly, and remarked on its traditional allure." WWD.com

See who was among the best dressed at the wedding (besides the bride&groom ofcorse) and admire the traditional display of eccentric hats and fascinators at Telegraph.co.uk

If there were any doubts, the news is the wedding gown is a boost for Alexander McQueen fashion house writes Wall Street Journal "Friday was a coup for fashion house Alexander McQueen— whose future was uncertain just a year ago in the wake of its British founder's suicide—and an inspiration for retailers who said the gown's polished style would set trends for wedding and evening wear."

Is Catherine, new Duchess of Cambridge going to be a fashion icon? "And so we have ourselves a new style icon. On Friday Catherine Middleton became a princess, walking through the doors of Westminister Abbey not just into royal history, but sartorial history too" Financial Times

The New York Times found the royal wedding a bit too traditional, but in a good way: "From the modest lace dress of courtly love, to the fascinator hats perched like exotic birds and the colorful military uniforms with their gilded decoration, Friday’s royal wedding was so awfully British"
