First look at James Middleton’s French wedding

Just a week after saying “I do”, photos have emerged from James Middleton and Alizée Thévenet’s secret French wedding.

James and Alizée were wed in the French village of Bormes-les-Mimosas on Saturday, September 11.

In an exclusive with Hello! Magazine, which shared the first snap from the ceremony, the newlyweds opened up about their big day.

“There are three important things for a good party: good music, good food and wine, and wonderful people,” James told the outlet.

“We were lucky enough to have all three.”

In the photo shared on the outlet’s Instagram page, James and Alizée are shown beaming while posing together in a classic white car decorated with dried flowers.

James wore a cream suit, paired with a blue suit and tie, while Alizée chose a chic, off-the-shoulder white dress that  featured a fitted bodice and delicate lacework along the neckline.

As her “something borrowed”, the dress was worn by her new mother-in-law Carole Middleton at her own wedding in 1980.

“It fitted me perfectly and was exactly what I wanted,” Alizée told HELLO.

“It always troubled me that wedding dresses are only worn once so it was amazing to give such a beautiful dress a second lease of life.”

The couple also revealed that two of their beloved dogs - Ella and Mabel - joined in the ceremony as flower girls.

HELLO confirmed that James’ sister Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, attended the ceremony with Prince William and their three children.

James told the outlet that he couldn’t be happier to be married, especially after having to postpone the wedding twice due to the pandemic.

“It was wonderful to finally celebrate with family and friends despite the challenges of a global pandemic,” he said.
