What about the dress?

Pippa Middleton arrived at St Mark's Church in Englefield wearing a bespoke Giles Deacon lace gown, which was crafted to create the impression of being seamless.

The wedding dress was designed by the British fashion designer, who is famed for his eccentric approach to modern glamour.

Deacon was spotted in November leaving Pippa's house in west London carrying garment bags, but had refused to confirm he was making her wedding dress.

A royal favourite, Deacon's designs have formerly been worn by Princess Beatrice, as well as other A-list celebrities such as Scarlett Johansson, Drew Barrymore, Agyness Deyn, Thandie Newton and Victoria Beckham.

In 2011, Abbey Clancy, who had previously modelled for Deacon, wore a wedding dress by the designer when she married footballer Peter Crouch.

Deacon's collections are described as having a "couture" feel, and his catwalk shows have previously attracted supermodel fans Linda Evangelista and Karolina Kurkova.
