When your big sister has a royal wedding, it can be a tough gig to follow. But Pippa Middleton’s weekend nuptials) were something to behold. Every single element was perfection–especially Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s special roles–and now more details from the exciting event are emerging.
The 33-year-old, who wore a bespoke cap-sleeved gown designed by Giles Deacon during the ceremony, changed her outfit during the second reception. An insider told Spanish publication Hola! that the new bride surprised guests when she arrived in a stunning Pronovias gown.
While the Spanish bridal house have yet to confirm the exciting development, it has been reported that Pippa wore a “white, flowing dress.”
Rocking a second outfit can now be considered a Middleton tradition. During her 2011 big day, Kate famously opted for an outfit change. While her Sarah Burton designed Alexander McQueen lace gown was perfect for the official portion of the day, the Duchess let her hair down in another Sarah Burton frock for the evening reception.
Kate had a huge presence for Pippa’s wedding. The brunette’s big sister stepped in as an “unofficial” maid of honor, keeping track of the youngsters in the bridal party.
The 35-year-old also provided Pippa with her something borrowed. The new Mrs. Matthews wore the earrings that she originally donned for Catherine’s wedding. The dazzling jewels were commissioned by the girls’ parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, from Robinson Pelham. During her nuptials, Pippa also donned a stunning handmade diamond tiara by British jeweler Maidenhair Fern.
While many details from the illustrious affair have been under lock and key, lucky patrons who were in the village of Berkshire got an inside look of the church. As a public venue, St. Mark’s Church was open to all following the lavish ceremony. Locals flocked to the pretty location to see a piece of history.
The building was adorned with pretty pale pink roses and white flowers with green leaves. The flowers perfectly matched Pippa’s small bridal bouquet and lined the windows and pews. Covering the exterior of the church, the pretty petals proved the perfect accompaniment to the romantic service.
“It was amazing,” one guest told People. “They were so cute. I cried. My makeup was running.”
While we wish we could have been there, we’re so excited for the happy couple!
