Catherine's wedding dress first came into view as she left the Goring Hotel with her father, Mike in the Rolls Royce 1. Even then, with only the top half of the dress in view as she journeyed in the car toward Westminster Abbey, it was imediately clear that this was a dress which was perfect for Catherine.  The V-shaped neck with intricate lacework around the shoulders and arms gave a very elegantly stylish first impression, and the amazingly fine veil enabled everyone to see Catherine's joy on her way to her marriage ceremony.

With her father, Michael Middleton proudly at her left side, and her sister Philippa supporting the train as Maid of Honour, Catherine stepped into Westminster Abbey looking gracefully beautiful and radiant.  A brief stop in front of the grave of the Unknown Warrior, gave Philippa the chance to arrange the 2.7 metre train of Catherine's stunning wedding dress behind her.

Meanwhile, William and Harry exited Westminster Abbey's traditional groom's waiting area at Saint Edmund's Chapel and walked to the Abbey's altar, where William looked straight ahead.  His Brother Harry, standing on his right hand side, provided a few words of commentary or reassurance as William waited patiently for his bride to complete her walk up the aisle.

Day after the Royal Wedding: William and Catherine Delay Honeymoon

On 30 April 2011, the day after Prince William and Catherine's wedding, hundreds of people queued up to get in to Westminster Abbey to see up close just how the Abbey looked in all its resplendence with the decor and trees that would remain there for a few days after the wedding. Catherine's wedding bouquet rested there on the grave of the Unknown Warrior.

After a long period of courting, Prince William and Catherine Middleton have become engaged. Yay for the happy couple!
