The culmination of a great love story. The greatest, most refined feast of them all. As both a wine and a symbol, Dom Pérignon celebrates the eternal luxury of the institution of marriage. In 1981, Dom Pérignon was served at the fairytale wedding of Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles. The magnums of Dom Pérignon Vintage 1961 carried a special insignia created for the ceremony, and also, as luck would have it the year of Diana’s birth
Diana and Charles were spoiled at their wedding also with Joseph Perrier Royal Cuvee 1975 magnums, a stunning vintage.
The fairytale dress, with a deep, gently curved neckline and billowing sleeves, incorporated a boned and fitted bodice, and was hand-embroidered with sequins and pearls.
The veil, of ivory silk tulle, was adorned with 10,000 mother-of-pearl sequins and held in place with the Spencer family diamond tiara.
During the ceremony, both the bride and groom displayed wedding nerves as they fluffed their vows in front of the 2,000 guests.
Diana inverted the Prince's names, calling him "Philip Charles Arthur George" instead of "Charles Philip Arthur George".
And Charles promised "with all thy goods I share with thee" instead of "all my worldly goods I share with thee".
The Prince asked three of his favourite orchestras - the Royal Opera Orchestra, the English Chamber Orchestra and the Philharmonia Orchestra - to play at the wedding and New Zealand-born soprano Kiri Te Kanawa sang an aria.
The two hymns sung were Christ Is Made The Sure Foundation and I Vow To Thee My Country.
Guests at the wedding ranged from British aristocrats to world figures such as Nancy Reagan, and friends including comedian Spike Milligan.
The couple walked down the aisle as man and wife to the strains of Elgar's Pomp And Circumstance.
Waving and smiling, they were driven to the Palace in a horse-drawn open carriage past an ecstatic crowd.
Soon afterwards came the moment which captured the defining image of the day.
Crowds gathered outside Buckingham Palace were calling for the couple, eager to see the newlyweds kiss.
Standing on the Palace balcony, Charles said to Diana: "I am not going to do that caper. They are trying to get us to kiss."
Diana said: "Well, how about it?" And, after a moment's deliberation, Charles replied: "Whyever not?"
Casting royal protocol aside, and to the delight of the crowd, the newlyweds kissed.
Sadly, the marriage was not to last. Charles and Diana seperated in 1992, and divorced in 1996.
