 I hear,TVS (Tom Van Strawberry   tehe) , DEFINATELY wanted a Aristocratic wife, he couldn't have just any woman hanging around a future King.  Prince William.tehe

He's Prince William's friend (and was the one who gave Kate the "ok" to William, reports are William had TVS check around about her and he basically said(this is a paraphrase)..., she's cool, if you sleep with her she won't talk or run to the press! So William went ahead and "had a go" , like he told his friends he wanted to.  sly

TVS is more William's friend I think? He was the one who took Kate to AFRICA AFRICA event when William was out of town (and Kate imo kept flirting with him, or giving him the eye like she loves to do when guys are in her presence.)  Shocked

^ I think they were broken up for awhile and he was seen kissing some other girl in a club or something, not sure if they were together then or not, it seems as if they got back together and everything worked out!
Congratulations to Melissa and Tom!  flower  loveshower
It will undoubtedly be a beautiful summer wedding! With lots of the royal and aristo crowd in attendance.
I wonder if Melissa will marry at Alnwick Castle like her sister or Syon Park, the Percy family's London residence? It's beautiful.
http://www.syonpark.co.uk/

Melissa looked lovely as maid of honour at Katie's wedding, http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2012/03/18/article-2116645-123A0DDB000005DC-329_468x1035.jpg
Here she is with younger brother Max: http://www.zimbio.com/pictures/s_JhPeYShsW/Chelsey+Davy+Katie+Percy+Wedding/mjqTSrw1Xrv
with her mother the Duchess: http://paimages.s3.amazonaws.com/categories/news/480x385/10269931.jpg

Her sister Lady Katie married Patrick Valentine on the 26 of February 2011 at Alnwick, her winter wedding looked beautiful,
she arrived in a carriage with her father the Duke.

Does anyone know if this is the family tiara? It did annoy me that it was crooked but she still looked beautiful and ever so happy.

The little bridal attendants looked just darling, the girls with their floral crowns and capes and the boys in the uniforms, who seem very impressed with their toy pistols.

She had quite a crowd turn out to see her!

I think it will be like most weddings in their circle, mainly pap pictures of all the guests and the bride arriving and leaving the church for the ceremony. That's what we got from her elder sisters wedding and it was featured on bbc (see video), most of the weddings in that circle don't get as much attention as Katie's did, because she is a Percy and a daughter of a Duke, just like there was a lot of attention to Lady Tamara Grosvenor's wedding (to Edward van Cutsem in 2004), as she is the daughter of the Duke of Westminster, Lady Edwina Grosvenor's wedding would have probably gotten similar coverage but she married Dan Snow in 2010 in a very small private ceremony.

Lady Mary Douglas-Home got married in a registry office and we still got pap pics
http://www.rexfeatures.com/live/2010/06/26/wedding_of_christopher_clothier_and_mary_douglas-home,_london
Her sister, Lady Iona's wedding was the one Prince William flew the Chinook to the Scottish borders to attend, we never got pics of that. http://www.journallive.co.uk/north-east-news/todays-news/2008/04/24/wills-finds-a-way-to-get-to-church-on-time-61634-20810697/
It depends upon where the wedding is held, if they do a very private ceremony with no public access to see anyone coming and going, we won't get pics. Also who attends is a big factor on coverage, if Will, Kate, Harry, Eugenie etc attend, as they most likely will, as Tom is one of Will and Harry's best friends and Harry and especially Eugenie are close with Melissa, we will probably get loads of pics.
 sorry For my very long post!  Embarrassed

That is the family tiara and she had it crooked on purpose (she is like that)
The coach is the family one too and has their crest on.
TVS and Missy were broken up when he was seen with that brunette.

TVS was more William's friends but I think over the last few years they are grown distant and he is more Harry's now

He's still close to William. He's been up to Angsley.

Quote
The couple have yet to decide on the details of their big day but sources said yesterday both Harry and Chelsy would be close contenders for the roles of Best Man and Maid of Honour.

Melissa is a tennis coach at Queen’s club and the younger sister of Pippa Middleton’s close pal George Percy.

Her family is estimated to be worth £300 million and their home is Alnwick Castle, used for the exterior of Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films.

City stockbroker Tom’s family run the Henry Van Straubenzee Memorial Fund, of which William and Harry are patrons, in memory of his brother Henry who tragically died in a car crash aged 18.

Tom went to Ludgrove Prep and Eton with both princes .

Will they or won't they? Oh the speculation of the media.   tehe

So was Grace van Cutsem forced to not wear glasses at Katie's wedding too?  Bless the little Cutseym!

Blessings to Melissa and Tom.  But I am afraid that she is being used.
