Princess Eugenie's blowout marriage to Jack Brooksbank needles palace

After a traditional ceremony, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank celebrated their royal wedding on Friday, October 12 with two lavish receptions!

Britain's Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank kneel at the altar during their wedding ceremony at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.

Unlike her bridal predecessors, Eugenie opted for pale pink rather than white for her evening reception at The Royal Lodge in Windsor.

They are the daughters of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, who are divorced but enjoy an amicable relationship.

When Princess Eugenie finally joined him at the altar, Brooksbank reportedly whispered something to his bride which a professional lip reader has said was something to the effect of: "Oh my heart".

She was also wearing the "wheatear brooches" owned by the Queen in her hair.

Royal fans may have been surprised when Princess Eugenie chose not to change into a second dress for her wedding reception.

Have you ever given a wedding speech?

When her cousin, Prince Harry left the same seat open during his May wedding to Meghan Markle (the now Duchess of Sussex), many theorised that it was left open in memory of his beloved mother, Diana, Princess of Wales. They married in the same venue used in May by Harry and Meghan. Originally made for society host Margaret Greville in 1919, its style reflects that of the Russian Imperial court, according to the royal family's website.

He said: "We're good family friends, I was meant to be going to the wedding but I'm in Australia so I couldn't, so, of course, I've got my priorities right!"

"But it's a lovely way to honour the people who looked after me, and a way of standing up for young people who also go through this".
