Shunning the tradition to wear white, religiously followed by the Duchess of Sussex and the Duchess of Cambridge at their respective receptions, Eugenie, instead went for an elegant peach outfit was designed by Zac Posen, reports Daily Mail. The designer revealed that he drew inspirations from the Windsor Castle and the surrounding countryside for the bespoke evening gown.

In the family photos, that were taken in the White Drawing Room at the castle, Sarah Ferguson, Eugenie's mother, was pictured standing next to Prince Philip, who is reported to have exiled her from the royal family in the 1990s.
An image was also taken of the bridal party which showed Theodora, the daughter of singer Robbie Williams and wife Ayda Field, standing next to Brooksbank who was pictured resting his hand on her shoulder. Prince George, the future king, was also pictured standing next to his sister Princess Charlotte.

The wedding that took place on Friday is believed to be the first time in 26 years that the Duke of Edinburg and Ferguson were pictured together after she was ostracized from the family after her divorce from Eugenie's father, Prince Andrew, in the 1990s. Even though Prince Philip once viewed Ferguson in a fond light, the 97-year-old declared her as persona non grata in 1992 after she was pictured to topless and having her toes being sucked on by Johnny Bryan, her American lover.
One of the most intimate pictures that were taken is a black and white image that shows the couple stealing a kiss inside the Scottish State Coach as they were returning to the castle after the carriage procession. In yet another image that was taken at the York family home, Eugenie is seen in her stunning evening gown while staring lovingly at her husband.

The White Rose of York, which was subtly embroidered on both the shoulder and the back of the dress, was a hint at her upbringing as Princess Eugenie of York. The evening gown was complemented by diamond and emerald drop earrings which were a wedding gift from her husband. She also received a hair slide that belongs to the Queen.
Buckingham Palace has said that the designer, Posen, is a big fan of the golden era of Hollywood and was inspired by Windsor and the countryside. The officials also added that the color of the dress was chosen to represent an English rose. The palace also said that the silk which made up the gown came from Biddle Sawyer Silk.
The newlywed couple is reportedly "delighted" to share the four official photographs that were taken by Alex Bramall, a British fashion and portrait photographer.
