Further Details: The Wedding of Lady Gabriella Windsor and Mr Thomas Kingston
THE WEDDING OF LADY GABRIELLA WINDSOR AND MR THOMAS KINGSTON
Lady Gabriella Windsor and Mr Thomas Kingston were married today at St George’s Chapel, Windsor. The Service was conducted by the Dean of Windsor, The Rt Revd David Conner. The Wedding was followed by a private reception at Frogmore House, Windsor.
The hymns were ‘Tell Out My Soul’, ‘Be Thou My Vision’ and ‘Love Divine, All Loves Excelling’.
The readings were taken from Ecclesiastes III, Philippians IV, Love’s Labour’s Lost by William Shakespeare and O Tell Me The Truth About Love, by W.H. Auden. They were read by Mrs Joanna Conolly, Mrs Emma Murray, Lady Frederick Windsor and Miss Sarah St George.
Lady Gabriella and Mr Kingston chose Paul Thomas to design the flower arrangements for the Service. Flowers in St George’s Chapel included coral sunset peonies, coral and white roses, white hydrangea, white delphiniums, apricot stocks and seasonal flowers, in addition to the creamy ivory ‘Ella’ rose, by David Austin, named for the bride.
The cherry and apple blossom trees and shrubs which stood outside St George’s Chapel were from Hillier Nurseries. Flowers at the reception were by John Plested.
Cake and reception
The wedding cake was a tall tiered cake designed and created by Fiona Cairns. The pale blush icing and leaf border surrounding the base were inspired by fabric within Frogmore House. The decoration included seasonal sugar flowers and shades of the lacework on the Bride’s wedding dress. The three tiered cake was made with three recipes including fruit cake, Victoria sponge and lemon Limoncello sponge.
Guests at the afternoon reception were served smoked Scottish salmon and asparagus risotto and canapés, as well as Caragh Chocolates from the Isle of Sark, where the couple became engaged.
