A Dream Come True: My Royal Wedding Experience

In the life of a wedding planner, every event holds its magic, a unique story waiting to unfold. But occasionally, there arises an opportunity so enchanting that it feels plucked straight from the pages of a fairy tale. That moment came on May 19, 2018, when I found myself among the vibrant crowds gathered to witness my royal wedding experience of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle. This is not just a recount of that day but a story of childhood dreams, international friendships, and the timeless allure of royal weddings.

The Dream of a Lifetime

Since I was a child, the grandeur and romance of royal weddings have always captivated me. Watching them on TV, I'd get lost in the pageantry, the elaborate dresses and the tales of true love making their way into the annals of history. As the lead planner and owner of Ever's Wedding And Events, I had the unforeseen honor of experiencing this magical event not through a screen but in person, surrounded by family, friends, and fellow Royal enthusiasts from around the globe.

The Anticipation on The Long Walk

The sun rose on Windsor, shedding light on what was to be a perfect day. We were so excited as we positioned ourselves along The Long Walk, the verdant path leading up to the majestic Windsor Castle. It was more than just an opportunity to catch a glimpse of the newlyweds; it was a community gathering where every anticipation-filled face told a story of miles traveled and dreams fulfilled.

Among the spectators, I met a lady from New Jersey who had flown to England just for the royal wedding. We shared stories fueled by excitement and the surreal feeling of being present at such a historic moment. It didn't matter where we were from or the paths we took to get there; on that day, we were all united by a shared sense of joy and wonder.

Witnessing Royal History 

The ceremony was a beautiful testament to love's unifying power, breaking barriers and weaving together cultures. According to The Royal Household, "2,640 people were invited to watch the wedding from inside the Castle Grounds. Many came from charities close to the couple, as well as over 1,200 who were nominated by their Lord Lieutenants". CBC News posted that "An estimated 100,000 people came out to catch a glimpse of the couple after the royal wedding". It was a diverse, international crowd representing the global impact of the royal family. But the moment that indeed took my breath away was when The Duke and Duchess of Sussex emerged, radiant and full of love. They embarked on their carriage procession, and as they passed by us down The Long Walk, the crowd erupted into cheers. It was a scene straight out of the movies - the kind you watch as a child, wide-eyed, never entirely imagining you'd be part of it one day.

The atmosphere was electric, with happiness and collective admiration for the couple. Their procession was more than just a ceremonial tradition; it was a moment of connection, a celebration of love's triumph, and a new chapter for the royal family.


The Reflection

Reflecting on this experience, as wedding planners and event organizers play in bringing dreams to life. The royal wedding, with its grandeur and flawless execution, inspires orchestrating special events that honor tradition and encapsulate the personal stories of the couples we work with. It's about creating moments that, much like the royal wedding, linger in the memory as vividly as if they were painted there.

This royal wedding reminded me of the power of love and the beauty of coming together to celebrate it. It taught me that with passion, dedication, and a little bit of magic, every wedding can be a royal wedding experience.


In my heart, I carried away more than just memories of a beautiful wedding; I left with a renewed sense of purpose and a reminder of the joy that comes from witnessing love in its most splendid form. Whether it's a grand royal wedding or an intimate backyard ceremony, at the heart of it all is love, which makes every wedding special and memorable.


For those planning their dream wedding or special event, remember, it's not just about the pomp and circumstance; it's about the love, the joy, and the shared moments that make life truly beautiful.
