Pippa Middleton—who gained international attention as her famous sister Kate’s beautiful bridesmaid back in 2011—became a stunning bride in her own right this past weekend.
Middleton married James Matthews on May 20 at St. Mark’s Church in Englefield, England. And, the pictures confirm what everyone pretty much already knew: Pippa had a fairytale wedding!
No More Bridesmaid for Pippa Middleton
Pippa made a splash six years ago as her sister Kate’s maid of honor. Kate Middleton married Prince William of England in an incredible royal ceremony that captivated the world.
However, Pippa almost stole the show from her sister when the world saw her in an incredible white sheath gown. Remember this knockout dress?
It surprised no one that Pippa’s wedding dress would leave everyone breathless. Giles Deacon designed the one-of-a-kind lace-covered gown. Royal family fans may notice some similarities to sister Kate’s dress, but Middleton clearly made her own statement. The dress fit the occasion with its romantic style, gorgeous train and simple elegance.
Don’t Forget The Children
Not only did the bride look amazing, but her little attendants for the wedding made quite an impression. Middleton’s nephew, Prince George of Cambridge, and her niece, Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, served as a pageboy and bridesmaid. As if these children aren’t cute enough, you have to see them all dressed up for their aunt’s big day!
Here’s Princess Charlotte not long after the ceremony with her mom Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge.
Of course, big brother Prince George of Cambridge, looked dashing in his pageboy outfit.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte were just two of the eight children participating in Pippa Middleton’s wedding ceremony. The little ones appeared to bring an extra touch of joy and happiness to the festivities, as shown in these pictures.
The pageboys and bridesmaids led the happy couple from the church after the ceremony.
Aww. The newlyweds share a kiss while the children look on.
There was even a little goofing around by the little ones. A photographer captured this classic moment just before the ceremony. We wonder if the Duchess of Cambridge noticed this little kid’s move (the media certainly has)!
