The beautiful touching detail hidden in Lady Gabriella's wedding dress you missed

It was all in the details for the stunning bride.

When Lady Gabriella WIndsor stepped out of the car to make her grand arrival at her wedding day, it would be safe to say the world collectively revelled.
Indeed the stunning 38-year-old kept us on our toes until the very last minute as we waited to see the highly anticipated wedding dress design, to which she would wear for her nuptials to partner Thomas Kingston.
And as all eyes were on her stunning wedding venue of St George's Chapel for the grand reveal on May 18, it would be safe to say it was well worth the wait!
A bespoke design by Italian designer Luisa Beccaria, the royal's beautiful gown featured a lace bodice with embroided flowers and embellishments.
Surprisingly, the design itself also wasn't traditional white - the bodice was in fact a blush shade, making this royal wedding gown even more unique.
Gabriella said she was "in love with Luisa Beccaria dresses for a long time" and said she felt very lucky to have had her dream dress designed by her.
But there was another addition to her stunning wedding day look that really drew our eyes, and it was all to do with the top of her head.
The blushing bride wore a beautiful Russian Fringe style tiara that was once worn by her mother, Princess Michael of Kent and her grandmother, Princess Marina of Greece on their own wedding days.
How beautifully fitting!

Speaking to Vogue.com about Gabriella's wedding day look, the designer herself shed some light on how the collaboration between herself and the royal came about.
"More and more brides love to enter into our sort of wedding world," Beccaria said.
"They are looking for something different. They appreciate the freshness and lightness of a dress that is not a proper bridal gown."
And Lady Gabriella, also known as Ella, was entirely on board.
Explaining how they incorporated the blush colour into the gown, Luisa said: "We had to put so many different layers of blush and cream organdy tulle so that it looked like just a little touch of blush. We also added a bit of blush to the veil."
As for the lace itself, Lady Ella had a specific idea in mind.
"She fell in love with a certain lace and I had it special embroidered in her own colour, and then we combined a couple of dresses that she saw here."
We can all agree that the the eventual result was nothing short of heavenly.

As for the Bridesmaid and Pageboy outfits, Luisa Beccaria also designed them, dressing the young Bridesmaids in cream dresses with blush underlays and sashes - a perfect subtle match to Ella's wedding gown.
The adorable young bridesmaids, Miss Isabella Windsor, Miss Maud Windsor, Miss Leonora Weisman, Miss Aurelia del Drago, Miss Eliza Goldsmith and Miss Emily Conolly, also wore flower rings in their hair to match the bridal bouquet.
As for the Pageboys, named Master Frederick Murray, Master Rafferty Murray and Master Karim Khawaja - cream shirts and knickerbockers were the winners of the day.

With a final flourish, guests at the wedding reception, which including Queen Elizabeth herself, were treated to smoked Scottish salmon and asparagus risotto and canapés.
They were also served Caragh Chocolates from the Isle of Sark, the very same place the couple became engaged.
