As we approach tomorrow’s tenth anniversary of The Wedding, I thought it might be fun to look at some of the preps before the big day, ending with the night before the wedding.
UPDATE: New photos have been released to mark the Duke & Duchess’s anniversary.
The images were taken by Chris Floyd, a London-based photographer known for his celebrity portraits.
In the new pictures, the Duchess is wearing her Avery print dress by Ghost.
The dress was available at John Lewis at one point, where it is described as “Featuring three mix-and-match floral prints across the wrap-effect bodice and tiered skirt, it is loaded with pretty frill detailing in georgette fabric. three mix-and-match floral prints, a wrap-effect bodice, and tiered skirt.” It had pretty frill detailing and a tie-detail at the waist. It is made of synthetic material and is machine-washable. Below, a better look at the details.
It looks like the Duchess may have on a necklace I’ve not previously seen. I will take a peek and update as soon as possible. UPDATE APR 29: There are suggestions the piece is Asprey’s Daisy Heritage Pendant, matching the Duchess’s Daisy Earrings shown below. That is certainly a good possibility.
UPDATE APRIL 30: As several have mentioned in comments and on social media, the number of ‘petals’ on the necklace and earrings appear different. I am not convinced the necklace is by Asprey and will continue seeking more information and also look at other designers/companies.
Obviously, the planning and preparation for an event like this took months. Among the projects underway in March 2011, the creation of two cakes. Below, Fiona Cairns, chosen to create the multi-tiered, traditional fruit cake with white icing.
