In Pictures: Royal wedding

Autumn Kelly enters chapel

Princess Anne's son, Peter Phillips, has married Canadian Autumn Kelly at Windsor Castle. The bride wore a satin and lace dress with a full veil and a tiara loaned by her new mother-in-law.

The bride was given away by her father, Brian Kelly. Her six bridesmaids, including Peter's sister Zara Phillips, wore sage green gowns designed by Vera Wang.

Peter and Autumn leave the chapel

The couple met in 2003 while both were working at the Montreal Grand Prix. Peter proposed last July during a rain shower as they walked their dog.

The new Mrs Phillips converted from Catholicism to the Church of England, enabling her husband to remain 11th in line to the throne. Heirs to the throne who marry Catholics cannot become sovereign.

The couple exchanged vows in St George's Chapel. The 300 guests included many members of the Royal Family including the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh.

The Royal wedding party

One notable absentee was Prince William who was attending a wedding in Kenya. He was represented at the Windsor ceremony by his girlfriend Kate Middleton.

After the ceremony, the celebrations continued with a reception and dance at nearby Frogmore House, which was loaned to the couple by the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh.

The newly-weds were whisked away in a horse-drawn Balmoral Sociable carriage. They would not say where they were going on honeymoon, other than it was somewhere hot.
