Balcony kiss defining image of wedding day

Lady Diana Spencer’s wedding to the Prince of Wales was billed as a true life fairytale.

Amid pomp and circumstance, shy Lady Di married the heir to the throne in the grand St Paul’s Cathedral on July 29 1981, watched by a worldwide TV audience of more than 750 million.

Many camped out overnight on the streets of London – including the future prime minister, David Cameron, who was 14 at the time – to get the best vantage point on the route from Buckingham Palace to the Cathedral.

On the day, hundreds of thousands of well-wishers travelled to the capital to catch a glimpse of the future king and his young bride, the new Princess of Wales and a future queen.

Details of Diana’s wedding dress were kept a closely guarded secret and, when she arrived at St Paul’s, it drew gasps of admiration. Designers David and Elizabeth Emanuel had created an elaborately flowing silk taffeta gown with a train of memorable proportions.

The dress, with a deep, gently curved neckline and billowing sleeves, trimmed with bows and lace flounces, incorporated a boned and fitted bodice, featuring antique lace, and was hand-embroidered with sequins and pearls. The veil, of ivory silk tulle, was spangled with 10,000 mother-of-pearl sequins and held in place with the Spencer family diamond tiara.

During the ceremony, both the bride and groom displayed wedding nerves as they fluffed their vows in front of the 2,000 guests. Diana inverted the Prince’s names, calling him “Philip Charles Arthur George”. And Charles promised “with all thy goods I share with thee” instead of “all my worldly goods I share with thee”.

Erik Karlsson wedding: There's a new royal couple in Ottawa

Le 7 août 2017, 13:31 dans Humeurs 0

Erik Karlsson officially tied the knot Saturday, marrying long-time partner Melinda Currey at a private wedding in Ottawa.

The Senators' star defenseman, who is known for his strong presence on social media, kept a low profile leading up to the big day and did not post any pictures from the wedding yet on his Instagram or Twitter accounts.

Roughly a week before his wedding, Karlsson posted this photo of himself working out and rehabbing from foot surgery in Ottawa.

However on Sunday, Currey posted this wedding picture and message on her personal Instagram account:

Long-time hockey reporter Don Brennan did his best to chronicle the day for The Ottawa Citizen. Though he did speak with the mothers of both the bride and the groom --with the Citizen posting photos of the moms, including several of Ulla Karin Karlsson's tattoo of her children, which includes, of course, Erik -- Brennan did not even catch a glimpse of the happy couple much less speak with Karlsson and Currey before being ushered off the grounds.

Many current and former teammates of Karlsson's were on hand, including best-man Daniel Alfredsson.

The pair became engaged last fall when Karlsson proposed with an engagement ring in a pizza box. This is the second marriage for Karlsson, who divorced his first wife, Therese, in 2013. Currey, a glamorous Ottawa native, is a CMO at a local business.

Karlsson, the two-time Norris Trophy winner who was again a finalist as the league's top defenseman this year following a 71-point season, helped lead the Senators to the Eastern Conference Final this past spring, ultimately dropping a heartbreaking double-overtime Game Seven to the eventual Stanley Cup champion Penguins. Karlsson, Ottawa's captain, played through multiple foot fractures during the post-season. He underwent surgery on his left foot in early June.
