Spanish Wine, French Food, And Traditional English Cuisines

The wedding celebrations were not just limited to the ceremony and wedding breakfast, with guests invited to enjoy a range of exclusive events, hosted by the royal family and the French government.

Victoria and Margarita celebrated their marriage, on their wedding night, with a romantic dinner for two, featuring a Spanish wine, followed by a meal of French crepes and other French delicacies. For those guests who dined at the wedding celebration, it was evident that the bride and groom’s choice of venue was not just down to its historical significance but also due to the hotel’s superb culinary reputation.

The following morning saw some of the most recognizable faces of British royalty arriving at the hotel, fresh from their night out. Queen Elizabeth II, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and the Duchess of Sussex were amongst the high profile wedding guests who stayed at the hotel that weekend.

The newlyweds, along with their guests, left the palace grounds on Monday morning, just as guests were settling down for the start of a well-deserved honeymoon.

Fashion And Beauty

If we are to believe the many glowing reports of the wedding, then it was indeed a celebrity celebration to remember. With a range of luxurious choices available, it was evident that the newlyweds were keen to make the most of their wedding day. One of the most memorable events was the bride’s dramatic entrance, wearing a custom-made gown and accompanied by a bevy of attendants. As the royal wedding progressed, guests were treated to a diverse range of luxurious choices. The bride wore an ivory silk dress, embellished with beadings and sequins, which was custom-made by Christian Dior. It was accessorized with a matching ivory silk stole, lined with rabbit fur and trimmed in gold-colored metal. The dress also featured an a-line, sweetheart neckline and was accompanied by a matching Christian Dior handbag.

The dress was chosen due to its ‘wedding chic’ aesthetic and the fact that it could be worn throughout the engagement. Also sporting an ivory silk dress was Victoria’s mother, the Duchess of Kent. The following day was a special one for the King and Queen of Spain, as they both wore outfits chosen especially for the wedding. The King wore a custom-made white tuxedo, with the Queen choosing a blush-toned, full-skirted dress adorned with white, pink and yellow flowers. It was also remarked that Queen Victoria looked ‘particularly radiant’ as she walked down the aisle on the day of the wedding.

The wedding breakfast was a sumptuous affair, featuring a range of delectable four-course meals, along with desserts and cheese boards. The wedding cake was a 9-tier, chocolate fountain, studded with edible gold leaf. Just like Margarita, Victoria and Margarita’s cake was a tiered affair, with each tier representing a different country of the couple’s travels. The guests enjoyed a spectacular view of New York City, as the majestic ‘Welcome to America’ mural was projected on to the palace’s ceiling. The couple also enjoyed a fair isle whisky, named after the groom’s grandmother, on their wedding night.

It would be remiss of us not to tip our hat, once again, to the team at Hotel Versailles. The hotel’s welcoming staff were praised for the way they took care of their guests, despite the enormity of the task during such a high-profile wedding. Guests praised the hotel’s attention to detail, as well as its warm, personal touch. The newlyweds said “we could not have found a more perfect wedding venue’ and “the staff went above and beyond to make our dream come true’.” Margarita also chose to stay at the hotel for the duration of the wedding week, ensuring she could continue to enjoy the lavish surroundings, as her guests arrived from around the world to celebrate with her.
