His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge and his fiancé, Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, also known as Prince William and Kate Middleton, tied the knot in a ceremony at Westminister Abbey. The ceremony was a brisk two-hour affair from 10:00 am to noon Greenwich Mean Time. The bride wore an ivory dress designed by Sarah Burton, the creative director of Alexander McQueen, accessorized with a pair of earrings given to her as a gift by her parents, and a Cartier tiara lent to her by Her Royal Majesty The Queen. After being reportedly unhappy with the makeup job she got during their engagement photo shoot, Kate insisted on doing her own makeup for the big day.

Both William and Kate had their younger siblings, Prince Harry and Pippa, act as their best man and maid of honor, respectively. And the event had many notable guests in attendance, including Victoria and David Beckham, and Sir Elton John and David Furnish.

The royal couple had a quick public kiss before a crowd of spectators on a balcony at Buckingham Palace, and will attend several congratulatory parties and banquets before taking for their honeymoon to a secret location.
