Video: The civil weddingThe long-awaited day finally came on April 9, 2005 - just one day later than planned, after things were postponed so that Prince Charles could attend the funeral of Pope John Paul II in Rome.
After a change of dress (a Robinson Valentine coat dress for the bride), it was off to St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle for the larger blessing ceremony. Her Diamond Flower Pendant Earrings added a small touch of luxury without going over the top for a daytime affair, and the rest of the accessorizing was accomplished by her golden Philip Treacy headpiece. Of course, her heirloom diamond engagement ring and new gold wedding band were in place throughout the day.
