Prince William and Cathrine Middleton exchange rings at the service
Today, Friday 29th April 2011, Dream Designs Colchester joined the many thousands of people worldwide, in celebrating The Royal Wedding of HRH Prince William, now The Duke of Cambridge, and his newly titled bride, The Duchess of Cambridge.
The service was held at Westminster Abbey in London, with two choirs, one orchestra and two fanfare teams who provided the music for The Royal Wedding service.
Both The Duke of Cambridge and The Duchess of Cambridge took great interest and care in choosing the music for their service, which included a number of well-known hymns and choral works as well as some especially commissioned pieces too.
Following the Wedding Service at Westminster Abbey, Claire Jones, the Official Harpist to The Duke of Cambridge, was said to have performed at a Reception hosted by Her Majesty the Queen at Buckingham Palace.
The Royal Wedding Procession took in some of London’s most prestigious sights and offered a truly memorable event in the most picturesque surroundings London has to offer, for the many thousand who turned out to witness the event.
Since Dream Designs Colchester was established in 2007, we have had quite a close association and interest with The Royal Family. We’ve had the opportunity to visit Cunard Line’s flagship Queen Mary 2 and their newest vessel Queen Elizabeth, both of which were officially named by Her Majesty The Queen.
We were lucky enough to visit Queen Elizabeth, just two weeks after Her Majesty The Queen officially named the vessel, upon the arrival back to Southampton after the maiden voyage. We also had the opportunity to present our drawing to Captain Christopher Wells, which is now displayed aboard.
Later this year in August 2011, Dream Designs Colchester will have the honour of visiting the majestic cruise ship, Hebridean Princess. The luxury vessel has been chartered by Her Majesty The Queen a number of times in recent years. During the visit to Hebridean Princess at Harwich International Port, we intend to present our drawing of the vessel to the Captain.
Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester, said:
" We are so delighted that we will have the opportunity to visit the Hebridean Princess in August when she visits Harwich International Port for the first time. It’s particularly appropriate that the vessel has been chartered by Her Majesty The Queen in previous years and adds to today's Royal Wedding celebrations."
In June 2012, Dream Designs Colchester will celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen, in Southampton aboard Cunard Line’s flagship Queen Mary 2. Both Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria, will join the celebration in Southampton, with a terrific Royal Rendezvous.
Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester, added:
" Today has been a truly remarkable day with thousand of people celebrating The Royal Wedding, not just here in the United Kingdom, but worldwide. It was a extraordinary to watch The Royal Wedding live via the BBC throughout this morning. We are very much looking forward to celebrating the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen, next year, aboard Cunard’s flagship Queen Mary 2. "
