Star guests’ wed­ding snaps go on­line in an In­sta-in­stant

The Daily Telegraph - - Eugenie & Jack - By Pa­trick Sawer

If this In­sta­gram photo is any­thing to go by, then it was a very good wed­ding in­deed. Shortly af­ter leav­ing the re­cep­tion that fol­lowed the mar­riage of Princess Eu­ge­nie to Jack Brooks­bank at Wind­sor Cas­tle yes­ter­day, Cara Delev­ingne, the model, posted a pho­to­graph on In­sta­gram taken by Liv Tyler, the Amer­i­can ac­tress.

It shows Cara with her sis­ters Poppy and Chloe and their friends Derek Blas­berg and David Gard­ner sprawled across so­fas at a nearby ho­tel. Next to them are glasses and bot­tles of ale.

Cara added the sim­ple cap­tion “post wed­ding”, in­di­cat­ing that – what with all those speeches and canapés – the party of friends had ex­hausted them­selves and sud­denly come over all tired and emo­tional.

One ob­server said: “They ar­rived back from the re­cep­tion in very high spir­its, but were soon laid out on so­fas and arm­chairs look­ing rather tired. They cer­tainly looked as if they’d had a good time.”

Cara Delev­ingne’s out­fit turned heads at Wind­sor with her choice of a boy­ish black tie, tail coat and top hat, and she de­scribed her­self on In­sta­gram as “suited and booted” and “show­ing up the lads”.

Also shar­ing pho­to­graphs on so­cial me­dia was Chelsy Davy, the Duke of Sus­sex’s for­mer girl­friend, wear­ing a be­spoke wed­ding hat by J T Millinery, one of the Duchess of Cam­bridge’s favourite milliners. Naomi Camp­bell, one of the in­dus­try’s orig­i­nal su­per­mod­els, posted a pho­to­graph show­ing her name tag cov­er­ing that of Princess Eu­ge­nie to give the im­pres­sion she was the one mar­ry­ing Mr Brooks­bank.

Sev­eral of the guests leav­ing the re­cep­tion com­mented on what a beau­ti­ful, fam­ily af­fair the wed­ding had been, with speeches by the groom em­pha­sis­ing his de­vo­tion to his new wife, and the Duke of York pok­ing gen­tle fun at his ex­pense, in­clud­ing a joke about shout­ing at his dog “Jack” to get off a chair and his new son-in-law leap­ing in­stinc­tively into the air.

As Tyler’s pho­to­graph shows, there was cer­tainly a lot of fun to be had at the Wind­sor Cas­tle party.

An­other celebrity guest who posted up­dates was Jack White­hall, the co­me­dian. He poked fun at his fel­low League of Their Own panel mem­ber and for­mer foot­baller Jamie Red­knapp, who also at­tended.

“Royal wed­ding, Wind­sor Cas­tle in the pres­ence of the Queen and I end up sit­ting next to a low rent foot­baller. I have to start pre­tend­ing he was Ru­pert Red­knapp, The Duke of Hamp­ton,” said White­hall. “An in­cred­i­ble day, see­ing two of the kind­est and most lovely peo­ple in the world ty­ing the knot. Wish them a very happy life to­gether!”

As their guests joked on so­cial me­dia, Mr Brooks­bank and his new wife drove off in an As­ton Martin DB10, orig­i­nally cre­ated for James Bond Spec­tre, to start their mar­ried life to­gether.
