Princess Eugenie and her fiance Jack Brooksbank announced the order of service ahead of their wedding at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on Friday.
The service was led by the Right Reverend David Conner, Dean of Windsor, who was accompanied by the choir of St George’s Chapel, along with musicians from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and opera singer Andrea Bocelli.
Beginning at 10:25 a.m. local time, the members of the Royal Family, the bridegroom’s family, and the bride’s mother Sarah, Duchess of York, arrived. Soon after, Brooksbank walked up those steps and was received by Rev. Conner.
Queen Elizabeth then made her entrance as fanfare sounds.
Finally, the bride herself arrived and was led to the altar by her father Prince Andrew.
Following hymns and words from the Reverend, Eugenie and Brooksbank said their vows and exchanged rings.
They were then serenaded by Bocelli and the orchestra in a performance of “Ave Maria”.
Both the bride and groom then read from texts they’d selected. Brooksbank read from St. Paul’s Letter to the Colossians and Eugenie read a passage from The Great Gatsby.
More songs, prayers, and hymns followed, culminating in the British National Anthem before the procession of the bride and groom out of the chapel.
It was revealed Friday that Rob Van Helden had been chosen to create the church flowers for the much-talked about wedding.
Mr Van Helden said: “It has been the greatest privilege and honour to create the flowers for Princess Eugenie and Jack, on their wedding day. Her Royal Highness has been very involved from the start and has been instrumental in the autumnal theme.”
It was then confirmed that Alex Bramall would be the official photographer for the couple’s special day.
Mr Bramall gushed: “It is an honour and a privilege to be invited to photograph Princess Eugenie and Jack on this most special of days. I look forward with great excitement to capturing this significant occasion and wish them both a happy future together.”
