William, Kate and Pippa attended the wedding of school friend Alice St John Webster in Taunton, Somerset today. Alice was in the same years as Kate at Marlborough College and was given a prime seat at the royal wedding in the Statesmen's Aisle. She married her long- term partner Gerald Alvenel.
A huge thank you to Freyja McLennan who kindly shared photos via Twitter.
The wedding took place in St Mary's Church, Bishops Lydeard, Taunton, Somerset. The church dates from the 14th and 15th centuries and has been designated as a Grade 1 listed building. A beautiful church for an intimate ceremony.
A look at William and Kate inside the church.
Always the gentleman Prince William shielded Kate from the dismal weather by holding an umbrella over her.
Kate wore the printed silk chiffon Beulah Blossom Dress (With thanks to the wonderful Bella) It is currently reduced from £490 to £415 and is described as
'With long billowing sleeves and knee length style, this dress is the perfect piece for any smart, summer occasion. The unique print and cut makes this dress original, flattering and feminine in a versatile way that can be worn from day to evening'.
Interestingly the label was started by Prince William's former girlfriend Natasha Rufus Isaacs. This is the second time Kate has chosen a Beulah dress (She wore their Sarai dress for a gala fundraiser last October) so obviously there's no hard feelings :)

Kate wore her favourite LK Bennett Sledge shoes.
Kate recycled the Jane Corbett hat she wore to the Order of the Garter.
Kate appears to be carrying a white shawl and possibly her LK Bennett Natalie Clutch.
