Princess Eugenie's wedding dress: Bride beams in long sleeved, low back dress by designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos
Bride opted for a low v-neck back, long sleeves and a heavy jacquard fabric to pair with a stunning emerald tiara for wedding to Jack Brooksbank
While there might not have been the media frenzy drummed up for the wedding of Britain's Princess Eugenie as there was for her cousin Harry's big day in May, it's fair to say that there was still plenty of in interest in one thing - her wedding dress.
And now the questions have been answered as Buckingham Palace revealed that the bride opted for British-based designers Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, leaving those with all their money on the likes of Erdem and McQueen out of pocket.
Eugenie's dress - a heavy jacquard fabric, with long sleeves and a stunning low v-neck back - harks back to the eighties in its style, with an A-line silhouette that flatters the bride and the strong fabrics ideal for conveying that 'autumnal theme' the bride was reportedly so hands on in creating for the day.
Eugenie specially requested a low back to be a feature of her gown, Buckingham Palace said - she had surgery aged 12 to correct scoliosis.
Eugenie opted to go without a veil for the service, instead donning a beautiful emerald studded Greville Emerald Kokoshnik tiara - which she borrowed from the Queen - that sat on her relaxed hairstyle.
The low neckline of the dress accentuated the bride's elegant emerald drop earrings, which were given to her as a wedding gift from her groom Jack.
"During several fittings the dress was developed layer by layer, constructing it from the corset and the complex underskirt to the fitted bodice and full pleated skirt.
"The dress features a neckline that folds around the shoulders to a low back that drapes into a flowing full length train.
"The low back feature on the dress was at the specific request of Princess Eugenie who had surgery aged 12 to correct scoliosis."
On the dress are symbols of personal significance to Eugenie, including a thistle for Scotland acknowledging the couple’s fondness for Balmoral, a shamrock for Ireland as a nod to the bride’s Ferguson family, and the York Rose and ivy representing the couple’s home.
Pilotto and De Vos reinterpreted these symbols in a garland of rope-like motifs, woven into a jacquard of silk, cotton and viscose blend.
Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos met at the entrance exam at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp 18 years ago, Peter said in an interview with The Man Repeller, and in 2007 Peter launched his namesake label.
"Actually, I started doing stuff in 2004 because a couple of stores wanted to buy my graduation collection, so I started to do small collections" Peter said in 2016.
"Christopher moved to London at the end of 2006 and we worked on the side together because Christopher had a job in London. We got the support for a catwalk show of sketches in 2007, so that would have been spring/summer ’08, then we said we should join forces."
The Duchess of Cambridge arrived with Prince William, wearing a dress by Alexander McQueen and a Philip Treacy hat.
The Duchess of Sussex, who arrived with her husband Prince Harry, wore a navy dress and coat by Givenchy and a hat by Noel Stewart.
