There are two types of people in the world today - those that watched the Royal Wedding, and those that did not. I fall into the former category and thankfully, so do my fabulous friends.
Starting at 5:30am we snuggled up on the couch with tea in one hand and crumpets (okay, more like coconut-almond muffins) in the other. We watched the entire spectacular affair, from the arrival of guests at the grand entrance of Westminster Abbey, to Catherine Middleton’s walk down the aisle among the trees; from her STUNNING Alexander McQueen lace dress, to William’s sweet blush during their kiss on the balcony. Pure perfection.
My senses are completely overwhelmed and my mind is racing so quickly, remembering all the amazing details, that it hardly seems feasible to shortlist down to three things (it could also have something to do with sleep deprivation and the intense desire to crawl back into bed and watch highlight reels for the rest of the day, from under my covers).
For today, forgive my attention to the numbers and let’s chalk it up to wedding fever and being totally enamoured by the new royal couple. Here is a selection of my favourite wedding-related articles, sites, photos and quotes…
