“If you find someone you love in your life, then hang on to that love.”

Wedding of the Century

Watching the Wedding of the Century along with over 750 million other people back in 1981 was what made me (and the rest of the world) fall in LOVE with Princess Diana.    

You cannot envision the wedding without thinking of David & Elizabeth Emanuel who designed Diana’s wedding dress.  We are honored to display “The Spare” wedding dress which was re-created by Elizabeth Emanuel for the museum.  It was made just in case the gown got stolen, burnt in a fire or its secret exposed & Diana was not aware of its existence.  

Also on display the original wedding achieves from David & Elizabeth Emanuel which include notes about Diana’s flowers, and the world’s best kept secret about where Diana’s long veil was actually made.


To think now that The Princess Diana Museum has preserved a piece of wedding cake that is over 43 years old is surreal.

The original Tambour hook that Peggy Umpelby used to embroider the Royal wedding veil which she did in the secret of her own home, applying over 10,000 individual mother of pearl sequins over a period of two weeks is also on display.

 “Pre Wedding Ball Gown”

The dazzling shocking pink silk taffeta gown was created at the Emanuel studio for the then Lady Diana to wear at the pre-wedding ball held at Buckingham Palace on Monday 27th July 1981. This was two days before the Royal Wedding on July 29th 1981 when Lady Diana became HRH The Princess of Wales at her wedding to HRH Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales.
