This month we have been lucky enough to witness another royal wedding. Princes Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank in a beautiful ceremony on October 12th with members of the royal family all proudly watching on.
Here are a few things that you may not know about the couples big day:
Family jewellery ties
The royal family traditionally have their wedding rings made from Welsh Gold and this has been the case for many years. Welsh Gold is extremely rare and is one of the reasons why it is the go-to metal for the royals.

As wedding cakes go, the couple opted for a creation from Sophie Cabot, who was more than delighted to be creating a five-tier masterpiece for the couple. The cakes were of two different flavours with three being red velvet and two chocolate. In total over 400 eggs were used to create the autumnal themed cakes with even the decorations being made out of sugar craft and consisted of maple leaves, ivy and acorns.
The evening reception reportedly had a carnival theme to it with even bumper car rides being brought into the Windsor Great Park’s Royal Lodge where the reception was held. Following on from the more formal afternoon gathering and sit-down meal, that is traditional at most weddings, the evening food consisted for gourmet pizzas and tequila themed drinks.
The wedding car
The couple left in an Aston Martin DB10 one of only eight cars that were created for the James Bond film Spectre in 2015.
Like many of the other royal weddings there were a number of high-profile celebrities on the guest list, with Robbie and Ayda Williams daughter taking part in the wedding ceremony as a bridesmaid and other guests including Demi Moore, Kate Moss and Naomi Cambell.
Princess Eugenie’s dress was one of the most talked about elements of the wedding. Designed and created by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, she opted for a gown with a low back so as to embrace the scars she has following on from the surgery she had aged 12 for scoliosis. The princess is reported to have stated that she believes in embracing your true beauty including your scars and that they are something that should be celebrated not hidden away. She has gained much popularity from the simple statement.
