When Harry Met Meghan- The Royal Wedding
The world woke up to beautiful images and videos of the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. When Harry met Meghan- The Royal Wedding. This blog is going to be photo highlights of the Royal Wedding that took place on Saturday May 19th, 2018.
I am so HAPPY that Harry & Meghan had the wedding they desired. They stayed true to their vision and lifestyle while respecting British Royal Family tradition. It was not a cookie cutter version of royal weddings of the past including Princess Diana & Charles and William & Kate’s. Though those Royal weddings were incredible ! But, this wedding was ALL HARRY & MEGHAN, and it was delightful !
I loved how they were intentional with sprinkling elements/ memories of Harry’s mother Princess Diana throughout the affair. From selecting diamonds from his mothers jewelry to incorporate into Meghan’s engagement ring, to Meghan wearing his mothers Aquamarine ring to the reception. I am positive that Princess Diana is beyond happy and proud of Prince Harry’s selection of the woman he chose to be his wife.
This Royal Wedding was like NO other.. the presence of diversity was incredibly thoughtful. Meghan and Harry ensured that elements of Meghan’s background was represented in all aspects of their nuptials. As we know, Meghan the Duchess of Sussex is of bi-racial descent. Her mother Doria Ragland a Yoga instructor is African-American and her father is Dutch-Irish. Rachel Meghan Markle was born and raised in Woodland Hills CA,
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex
Meghan’s wedding gown was custom designed to match her elegant and sophisticated style. Her dress was designed by Clare Waight Keller of the house of GIVENCHY.
The Royal Wedding cake was again a break from the traditional Fruit Cake. Instead, the cake was created by LA born and current London transplant ClairePtak of Violet Cakes.
The confection consists of tiers of lemon sponge cake drizzled with elderflower syrup and topped with an Amalfi lemon curd. The wedding cake was coated with a Swiss meringue buttercream and infused with elderflowers and adorned with 150 fresh flowers, including peonies and roses.
Outfit change– Meghan reception dress was another understated, and yet elegant dress designed by Stella McCartney
Meghan and Harry The Duck and Duchess of Sussex wedding was a true reflection of who they are, and I have a feeling the brits are looking at a new and updated Monarchy coming soon! We already have Prince William & Kate, so get ready for a fresh, new and modern royal family!
