The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister, Pippa Middleton, marries financier James Matthews in a romantic church wedding in Englefield, Berkshire. Breathtaking in a custom gown, Pippa beams happiness in every single photo. And we’ve got plenty of them for you.
Pippa Middleton Marries James Matthews
The bride wore a custom gown designed by Giles Deacon, a Maidenfern Tiara, veil and earrings by Robinson Pelham and custom shoes by Manolo Blahnik.
She also wore a huge smile during the entire event.
Like she did at her sister Kate’s 2011 wedding to Prince William, she donned the same Robinson Pelham pearl earrings.
As the bride arrived, she couldn’t conceal her happiness.
“I was thrilled to work with Pippa on her wedding dress,” Giles Deacon said of his collaboration with Middleton. “The dress is constructed with a cap sleeve, high neckline and features a corseted bodice with draping to the front and a heart-shaped detail at the back.”
“The bespoke silk cotton lace was hand appliqued to create an illusion of the dress having ‘no seams’.”
“The lace bodice is embroidered with pearl detailing over an organza and tulle underskirt, which has layer upon layer to enable a floor-sweeping movement.”
“It’s a privilege to show the craftsmanship that my team produces in London and a real testament to Pippa’s support of British fashion,” Deacon added.
The wedding gown is said to have taken two months of intense handiwork to create. Giles Deacon couture designs- which are made in his London atelier by a staff of 20 – can reach as high as £120,000 for extravagant dress such as this one.
