Windows to Celebrate The Royal Wedding

Various, London

It has been 30 years since the last royal wedding in England, so it is definitely a unique event. Prince William and Kate Middleton are to marry tomorrow, and here in London it really shows. There is bunting everywhere from streets to front doors of homes and people dressed in blue, red and white.  

The wedding offers a welcome commercial opportunity to shops pushing their home wears, fashions and souvenirs. It is also a celebration of all things British. Most windows featured here will have Union Jack flags in them one way or another.

Liberty of London and the classic Mini.

John Lewis, Oxford Street prepared its customers for the perfect summer party.

Bentalls, Kingston based its windows around typically British themes such as the street party and the summer festival.

Bhs, Oxford Street take this event as a great opportunity to promote their affordable wedding dresses.

Apologies for being away for a while. Thailand! These luxurious but fun LV Bond Street windows were installed a while ago, but I thought I would share them anyway. Mannequins and accessories ride on golden rollercoasters. The windows were installed and produced by Chameleon Visual and the concept came from LV Paris creatives. The UK based company started working with LV when the grand New Bond Street store opened in 2009.
