Meghan Markle & Prince Harry
It was one of the most photographed weddings in history and images kept flooding the internet! All of us at The Bride’s Diary were glued to our TV screens watching the royal wedding on Saturday May 19th and then passionately awaiting every new image of Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, their bridal party and the guests. But just when we thought we had seen it all, there was yet another wonderful surprise! Renowned Australian illustrator Alexandra Nea Graham has created gorgeous illustrations of the big day and they have gone viral!

Based in Sydney, Alexandra is a freelance illustrator who draws anything that inspires her from cakes, flowers and beautiful hotels to lavish weddings! Her list of clients is really impressive as it includes some of the biggest names from the fashion industry, but after she had posted her portraits of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on Instagram, she has gained over 8,000 new followers in just 48 hours!
Alexandra has recreated some of the most memorable moments of the royal wedding including Meghan walking down the aisle in her breathtaking Givenchy wedding gown, the married couple holding hands while standing on the West Steps in front of St George’s Chapel and adorable Princess Charlotte waving to the crowds!
She has also captured some of the best dressed guests including Amal Clooney in her stunning yellow Stella McCartney gown, Lady Kitty Spencer in Dolce & Gabbana, Abigail Spencer in Alessandra Rich, Gina Torres in Christo Costarellos, Sarah Rafferty in Lanvin, the Duchess of Cambridge in Alexander McQueen, Gabriel Macht in a bespoke Garrison suit and Jacinda Barrett in an Emilia Wickstead frock.

These breathtaking drawings gave me yet another excuse to reminiscence about the royal wedding and admire all those fashion statements. Jewel-coloured dresses caught everyone's eye, but the hats were the talk of the town… especially the ones made by the famous British milliner Philip Treacy!
Meghan’s bridal gown looks even more impressive in Alexandra’s illustrations because the details are so intricate and the lines so wonderfully smooth. I couldn’t help thinking that having your own wedding documented with a series of hand-drawn portraits really is the icing on the 'wedding' cake!
