after having purchased several of the other books available on the royal wedding (and subsequently being disappointed at the lack of actual wedding day coverage), i am entirely pleased i purchased this one as well!

this is a solid book. the quality of the binding and the pages is top notch, as are the quality and quantity of the images presented.

the caveat here are the images themselves! present is the first photo i have seen of the actual cake! also included is one of the official images released by the royals of the bride and groom with the children of the wedding party. there are both the officially released engagement photos. there is a lovely photo of catherine on the way to the ceremony, as well as numerous lovely images from the ceremony itself. there are a few images of the carriage ride to the palace, as well as a great spread on the balcony kisses.

if you are considering purchasing a book for images of the royal wedding itself, i highly encourage you to purchase this book, as it is far more impressive than the others currently available on the market!

This book has 55 pages dedicated to wedding day pictures only as well as a few shots of the wedding throughout. In addition, there's background details/pictures of prior royal weddings up to Diana and Charles as well as information and pictures of William and Catherine prior to the wedding individually and as a couple. I think this is a great collector's book. I had also pre-ordered the "LIFE The Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton: Expanded, Commemorative Edition" and found it very lacking. I cannot recommend this book enough as it includes pictures of both arriving at the ceremony plus various other royals and guest shots as well as pictures of the crowds at the mall. This truly encompasses the whole day up to them leaving for Clarence House prior to the night reception.

This book is absolutely fabulous! There are tons and tons of pictures, way before the wedding, shortly before the wedding, and many of the amazing day itself. This is the perfect book for anyone obsessed with the royals and their recent nuptials. I will treasure my copy for years to come!

This is by far the best book in pictures and story that I have seen on the wedding....and I have checked them all out in the bookstores....this actually has start to finish of the wedding, a beautiful picture(s) of the kiss and a lot of great background information. Well worth the money and a great book of this once in a lifetime event.

This is a lovely book filled with photos of the recent marriage of William and Catherine, but also begins with a history of the Royal Family and past weddings in the family. I purchased this book on Amazon.com

I was so suprised and delighted at the size of this book and all the wonderful pictures. It is as nice a reminder of the royal wedding as I could ask for. I loved all the pictures from inside the cathedral and the archive pictures and stories from royal weddings past. I think you will love this book as much as I do.

This is a beautiful book; and I was not disappointed by the photographs included; they are simply lovely. But I should have read all of the reviews; had I, I would have known there was an entire section dedicated to previous Royal weddings entitled "Grand Affairs" covering pages 16 - 41, this was surprising as nowhere in the title does it allude to their inclusion; and might have influenced my decision on purchasing this particular offering. Perhaps I am in the minority; but I don't feel it necessary to continually show the pictures from William's parents wedding, and if I wanted to read about other Royal couples I would have purchased a book on the British Monarchy. I would have preferred those pages be filled with images from all of the couple's public engagements; they have included several, perhaps those 25 could have served that purpose. Overall it was worth the cost; and it makes a nice addition to my collection.

I like this book main it shows more than others I 've seen. What does it show that other others don't. Their wedding cake. I have never seen a picture of there cake with all the coverage this wedding had. It also has some great shots of the back of Kate's dress that is designed differently than the usual. A good up close shot of Pippa with her earrings you can make out some details. It is also rare because Pippa at the wedding is usually pictured at a diiference. It as a copy of their wedding invite, anotheritem from the wedding I haven't seen till this book. Also some pictures I haven't seen of Kate pre-engagenment. Yes, it shows William's growing up & parents. some older royal wedding picture. So this book is a good investment.
