Princess Eugenie has married Jack Brooksbank in a lavish ceremony at Windsor Castle in front of a host of celebrity guests and members of the Royal Family.
Storm Callum crashed the party, causing a bit of a stir as one pageboy was nearly blown away by gusting winds, and guests were left clutching their hats and hemlines.
Here are the highlights – and occasional lowlights – of the Queen’s granddaughter’s big day:
The star-studded guest list
Robbie Williams and his wife, Ayda Field, were among a host of famous faces at the wedding, with the guestlist including Kate Moss and daughter Lila Grace, Hollywood royalty Demi Moore and Liv Tyler, along with Stephen Fry, Ellie Goulding, James Blunt, Cara Delevingne, Pixie Geldof and Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister Pippa Middleton also oozed maternity chic in her outfit for the occasion.
Eugenie also invited surgeon Jan Lehovsky and other staff from the the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, where she had surgery at the age of 12 after scoliosis caused a curvature of the spine.
The royal family
The celebrity guests were joined by members of the Royal family, with the Queen and Prince Philip attending their granddaughter’s wedding, along with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the latest Royal newlyweds, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Prince Philip, who has been hit by bouts of ill-health recently, also made it to the wedding.
Mother-of-the-bride Sarah Ferguson, who got a cheer as she arrived, impressed in the fashion stakes with an emerald-hued suit and matching hat with golden wings.
Maid of Honour Princess Beatrice arrived with her mother in a royal blue jacket and skirt.
Storm Callum brings blustery weather
Strong winds whipped the guests as they arrived for the ceremony, with a number of hats escaping.
Robbie Williams, whose daughter Theodora Rose, six, was one of Princess Eugenie’s bridesmaids, was forced to run down the street to collect his mother in law’s headwear.
Louis de Givenchy, the six-year-old son of JP Morgan banking executive Olivier de Givenchy and his wife Zoe, took a tumble on the West Steps at the entrance of the chapel as a mega gust hit the bridal party.
The bridesmaids and pageboys
The gaggle of bridesmaids and pageboys were a highlight of the wedding.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte were joined by Savannah and Isla Philips, Peter and Autumn Phillips’ daughters, Zara and Mike Tindall’s four-year-old daughter Mia, five-year-old Maud Windsor, eldest daughter of Lord Frederick Windsor and his wife Sophie Winkleman, Robbie Williams’ daughter Theodora, and six-year-old Louis de Givenchy, the son of JP Morgan banking executive Olivier de Givenchy and his wife Zoe.
Princess Charlotte showed off her regal wave from the car as she arrived, and there was a cheeky interaction between Prince George and Savannah Philips.
Princess Eugenie chose a gown by London-based designer Peter Pilotto as her wedding gown.
The ivory satin dress had a cold-shoulder neckline, long sleeves and a dramatic, sweeping train.
The bride chose a dress that showed the scars from her childhood surgery.
The low back feature was a specific request from Eugenie, who wanted to proudly display the marks of the operation she had at the age 12, after scoliosis caused a curvature of her spine.
The princess had two 12-inch metal rods inserted in her back in the eight-hour operation, which took place in 2002 at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital.
She said before the wedding: “I think you can change the way beauty is, and you can show people your scars and I think it’s really special to stand up for that.
The Great Gatsby
The couple’s choice of an extract from The Great Gatsby raised a few eyebrows, with commentators suggesting that a passage from a book that delves into the themes of excess might be somewhat ironic at a wedding widely criticised making such a dent in the public purse.
But during his address, the Dean revealed that the passage describing Jay Gatsby’s smile in the book – which Eugenie had read just after meeting her now-husband in the ski resort of Verbier in 2010 – had reminded her of him.
“She decided she wanted eventually to let Jack know how much those words had brought him to mind,” he said.
The service, led by the Dean of Windsor David Conner, also included a performance by Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli.
After the ceremony, the newlyweds had a brief tour through the assembled crowds in Windsor, waving at well-wishers from a horse and carriage.
The dodgy weather earlier in the day meant the couple opted for a covered carriage rather than an open-top one.
The beaming couple waved to onlookers as they passed by the flag-waving visitors.

The crowds in Windsor were noticeably thinner than those for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle earlier this year.
Despite a heavy police presence, spectator numbers were low, with officers outnumbering members of the public in places.
Although this was to be expected considering Princess Eugenie is far less prominent royal, critics had vented their anger ahead of the wedding that it was costing taxpayers so much.
