Official photos of Princess Beatrice and Edo’s wedding – bride wore a vintage royal dress!

Following on from the unexpected royal wedding yesterday, Princess Beatrice and now-husband Edo have shared two snaps of their big day.

The couple tied the knot at the Royal Chapel of All Saints, near to Windsor Castle, yesterday, with the public finding out a few hours later.

It was said the couple did not wish to overshadow Captain Tom Moore, who visited Windsor Castle yesterday to receive his knighthood.

The bride, 31, looked wonderful in a white dress, with puff sleeves and dark beading, wearing Queen Mary’s fringe tiara, as she stands with her groom, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. This is the same tiara worn by Princess Elizabeth in 1947 for her own wedding, which was made by E. Wolff & Co. for Garrard & Co. in 1919; they made a kokoshnik-style piece consisting of 47 graduated brilliant and rose-set tapering bars, separated by 46 narrower spikes. Mary’s fringe can also be removed from its frame for use as a necklace.

She carried a bouquet of pale pinks and whites.

The dress was a vintage one once owned by The Queen, created by Norman Hartnell. It was remodelled by Angela Kelly and Stewart Parvin for Beatrice. You can see Her Majesty wore this in 1966 State Opening of Parliament.

Edo, meanwhile, wore tails and a white flower in his button hole, shown in the images taken by Benjamin Wheeler.

Mr Mapelli Mozzi’s son, Wolfie, aged 4, was best man and pageboy, while Prince Andrew walked his daughter down the aisle. Under government guidelines, no hymns were sung.

The Queen and Prince Philip look at the happy couple

The Queen and Prince Philip look at the newly weds from a safe distance outside the church. Around 20 guests are thought to have attended the ceremony, including Beatrice’s parents – The Duke of York and Sarah Ferguson – and the couple’s siblings.

The bouquet the Princess carried, featuring pale roses and myrtle, was then taken to Westminster Abbey, and placed on the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior, as has become a royal wedding tradition. The Queen Mother – then Duchess of York – began this act, remembering her brother Fergus, who died during the First World War and therefore absent from her wedding in 1923.
