It was the wedding of the years which saw billionaire bride Nicky Hilton marry wealthy English heir James Rothschild in a lavish but eccentric day that saw a marriage between the two cultures - and some mishaps with the Valentino couture dress.
The 31-year-old's dress had a lengthy train and was worn with a traditional lace veil under which a sleek blonde up-do could just about be seen. She also carried a bouquet of white roses - seen earlier being carried into the hotel by an aide.
But it landed her in a spot of bother more than once after she tangled with a Bentley that parked on the train and later her hemline rode as high as spirits as a team of staff helped her look perfect at Kensington Palace.
Escorted out of the hotel by her father, the hotel heiress had a brief scare when she tripped over her train as she got into her car but managed to hold herself up and made it into the vehicle without losing her dignity.
With Miss Hilton was older sister and chief bridesmaid Paris, 34, who was dressed in a floor-length periwinkle blue gown with a glittery silver belt and carried a delicate bouquet.
The suit that James Rothschild got married in was a bespoke charcoal grey wedding suit, made of British cloth by the Savile Row tailor Huntsman. The blue dinner jacket he wore for the festivities was also made bespoke by Huntsman. Both took between three and four months to make.
The luxurious day started at 11am for Kensington Palace staff when the wedding party arrived at Kensington Palace for a rehearsal before heading to Claridge's.
Guests were called into the Lawn Marquee for what started out as a very English affair, to reflect the groom's nationality, soon to be followed by a more American theme as the blushing bride brought the some home cuisine to the table.
Guests were served drinks form the cocktail list first, which included the English Garden, made from gin, elderflower, lemon apple, mint, and the Pine and Dandy, with vodka, lime, ginger, pineapple and rosemary.
Flowers were done by London florist Nikki Tibbles, one of the city's most sought after florists, founder of Wild At Heart. She used Lilly of the Valley, roses, hydrangea, Stephanotis, sweet peas, white, cream and soft pink peonies, olive branches, rosemary and mixed herbs, delphinium and stocks to decorate the venue and the guests.
Guests were moved from the marquee to the Orangery for the cake cutting at 9.35pm, followed immediately by the happy couple's first dance, which is when the party began and it goes on until the early hours of the morning.
On the turntables was DJ Kayper, the trendy Croydon scratch DJ who has worked with some of the world's biggest dance producers, including Diplo, and played some of the world's most famous clubs, including Ministry of Sound.
