Pippa Middleton’s wedding to James Matthews was nothing short of a fairytale celebration.

The service, which was held at St Mark's Church in Englefield, Berkshire, was filled with wall-to-wall pink and white flowers including peony, sweetpea, freesia, waxflower, and green bell, according to the Daily Mail.

And while the flowers filled the ceremony with the sweet scent of spring, it was one smaller, more delicate detail that truly made the ceremony unique: a personalized drawing created by the Duchess of Cambridge adorning the cover of the order of service.

According to reports, Duchess Kate, a former art history student, created the drawing of St Mark’s church as a gift to her sister and new brother-in-law for their big day.

Matthews reportedly thanked his new sister-in-law during his speech at the reception. According to the Sun, Matthews remarked, “And to Pippa’s sister Kate, such ability – a beautiful drawing of St Mark’s church in the order of service.”

While the piece is beautiful and clearly shows off the Duchess’ artistic talent, it really should come as no surprise that she wanted to create the piece for her sister. As Duchess Kate has remarked in the past, she is "a firm believer in the power of art to make a difference."

Following the ceremony and reception, Middleton and Matthews immediately hopped on a plane to travel halfway around the globe to enjoy their honeymoon on the Pacific Islands. As Travel + Leisure previously reported, the duo is staying at The Brando, an eco-friendly resort with 35 thatched villas that each have their own outdoor bath, an infinity pool, and a rocking chair for two – perhaps the perfect subject for Kate's next piece of art.
