Over 2,600 members of the public were invited in to the grounds of Windsor Castle and 1,200 of those were nominated by the nine regional Lord-Lieutenants offices. We are delighted to say that we had representatives from County Londonderry among those guests and they watched the arrival of all the wedding guests, from all the Royals to celebrities and friends of the couple and of course they saw up close and personal the newly married couple.
They got some great photographs and we'd like to share some of those and their response to being at this special day.
