May kicks off wedding season, which also means it’s the beginning of anniversary season! On Sunday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle celebrated their first wedding anniversary, as did Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, who have been together for an impressive 22 years. Now it’s time to say congratulations to Pippa Middleton and her husband, James Matthews, who are celebrating their second anniversary today.
Pippa, who first shot to worldwide fame after she wore a figure-flattering Alexander McQueen maid of honor dress at sister Kate Middleton’s 2011 royal wedding to Prince William, chose a stunning custom lace gown by British designer Giles Deacon for her own ceremony. With a high neckline, cap sleeves, and a corseted bodice, her bridal dress fit perfectly well with the romantic English countryside setting of her nuptials at St. Mark’s Church in Berkshire.
Pippa accessorized her gown with a Maidenhair Fern tiara by Robinson Pelahm, Manolo Blank pumps in ivory satin, and a killer pair of toned arms. (We were so impressed by them, we even wrote a piece on how to get sculpted arms like hers as fast as humanly possible.)
Aside from her beautiful dress, Pippa’s page boys and flower girls, which included Prince George and Princess Charlotte, also stole the show in adorable custom looks by Spanish brand, Pepa & Co.
Last October, a little over a year after tying the knot, the couple welcomed their first child, a son named Arthur. A few days ahead of their cotton anniversary, the pair were recently spotted attending the wedding of Lady Gabriella Windsor and Thomas Kingston, which most likely brought back memories of their own May wedding day. Here’s to many more anniversaries in the future!
