Pippa Middleton, radiant in a custom-made wedding gown, married a wealthy financier Saturday as two likely future British kings and other members of the royal family, including her sister, looked on.
In what was seen by many as the society wedding of the year, Middleton and hedge fund manager James Matthews said their vows in a ceremony at St. Mark's Church in Englefield, west of London. Before the wedding, a crowd of well-wishers gathered outside the church grounds, hoping for a glimpse.
The wedding party included Prince George, a 3-year-old page boy, and 2-year-old Princess Charlotte, a bridesmaid. Both are the children of Pippa's sister, Kate, the duchess of Cambridge.
Prince William and Prince Harry arrived wearing formal morning suits. Matthews, 41, smiled broadly and sported elegant formal wear set off by a blue vest.
Middleton, 33, came to the church accompanied by her father, Michael, in a vintage Jaguar convertible. She wore a gown designed by Giles Deacon, a long veil by prominent hat-maker Stephen Jones, and a sparkly tiara.
The duchess of Cambridge gracefully ceded the spotlight to her younger sister Saturday. Kate wore a long-sleeved, blush pink Alexander McQueen dress and focused on making sure the young page boys and bridesmaids behaved — which they reportedly did.
The bride's parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, had an elaborate glass marquee built on the grounds of their estate in nearby Bucklebury for the lavish reception Saturday night.
