I love this photo - a wedding portrait of my English great grandmother in the late 1800s wearing a truly magnificent wedding dress - with  the newly wedded Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

It was so thoughtful of Prince William and Kate to ensure their wedding celebrations was timed so perfectly for cocktail hour in Australia. So, at the stroke of 6:30pm when our television coverage commenced, the first of many corks was popped. I had a group of great friends around - all dressed suitably English or Royal. We dined on 'gourmet' Jamie Olivier fish pie to keep with an English theme. It was thrilling to see Kate's stunning vintage inspired dress, so reminiscient of Grace Kelly's beautiful wedding dress. It reminded me a little of a 1950s lace, tulle and silk wedding dress from the same era I have in the collection. We had a great night!
