It was fashion's best kept secret and we were all left surprised to learn Meghan's stunning wedding gown was designed by acclaimed British designer, Clare Waight Keller. Ms Waight Keller last year became the first female Artistic Director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy. The moment Meghan stepped out of the car there was a collective gasp from those I was watching with; the cut, craftsmanship and seemless simplicity is so very Meghan, and she stayed true to her style whilst incorporating every consideration for her new role and position.
The veil is quite simply a work of art. Meghan expressed the wish of having all 53 countries of the Commonwealth with her on her journey through the ceremony. Ms Waight Keller designed a veil representing the distinctive flora of each Commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral composition. The sparkling diamond bandeau is English and was made in 1932, with the centre brooch dating from 1893. Meghan's shoes are based on a Givenchy refined, pointed couture design made of a silk duchess satin.
Prince Harry handpicked several flowers yesterday from their private garden at Kensington Palace to add to the bespoke bridal bouquet designed by florist Philippa Craddock. The spring blooms include Forget-Me-Nots which were Diana, Princess of Wales’ favourite flower. The couple specifically chose them to be included in Meghan's bouquet to honour the memory of the late Princess on this special day. Meghan's earrings and bracelet are by Cartier. The bracelet is the $155,00 Reflection style.
She has worn the Galanterie de Cartier earrings on several occasions. The bride's hair was styled by Serge Normant in an updo with a middle part, with make-up by long-time friend and make-up artist Daniel Martin.
Meghan looked gorgeous in a bespoke Stella McCartney lily white high neck gown made of silk crepe. Meghan's shoes from Aquazurra are made in silky satin, with nude mesh, with soles painted in baby blue. Her hair was styled by George Northwood.
For 'something blue', Meghan wore Diana's statement aquamarine ring. It is thought it was a wedding gift from Harry. It very much looks like Meghan wore the Cartier Reflection earring
