Who: Camilla Parker Bowles (nee Camilla Shand) and Lt. Col. Andrew Parker Bowles

When: July 4, 1973

Where: The couple recited their vows at Guards Chapel in Birdcage Walk in London, England.

The Ceremony: Over eight hundred guests, including the Queen Mother and Princess Anne, who had once been wooed by the groom, were on hand to witness the culmination of a seven year romance in holy matrimony. After the service, the newly betrothed couple exited the chapel to the blare of trumpets as they walked beneath the gleam of a sword arch.

The Dress: Clutching a cascading bouquet of white lilies, the bride met her intended at the altar in a white Belville Sassoon confection with ruffled trim along the neckline and hem. A ten-foot-long veil was attached to a delicate tiara which rested upon her blonde locks, worn natural for the occasion. The groom opted for a morning suit, which was embellished with a carnation boutonniere.

A parade of children marched down the aisle ahead of the bride, with the boys in miniature naval uniforms. The girls, in full-length gowns closely resembling the bride's attire, carried baskets of blossoms and wore wreaths of flowers in their hair to enhance their cherubic appeal.

The Reception: It was a short journey for guests from Guards Chapel, which had been restored in the 1960s after sustaining extensive damage during World War II, to St. James Club, where Princess Margaret was among the throng of well-wishers.
