When Princess Beatrice married her fiancé Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi last Friday, the ceremony was intimate, with only those closest to the bride and groom in attendance. But one other person got to witness the nuptials: photographer Benjamin Wheeler.

As the event at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge was completely private, Wheeler's images are the only insight the public has into Beatrice's big day, and a limited number of pictures have been released to the press thus far.

But this week on his own Instagram account, he opened up about photographing the wedding, calling it a "milestone" of his career, and sharing that he was "so incredibly honoured" to be involved in the day. In the post, he also shared a few details about the wedding, congratulated the couple, and thanked his fellow photographer Gillian Lawtie.

Read his full caption below:

Congratulations to HRH Princess Beatrice & Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi! The couple were married in a small private ceremony at the Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge.

Princess Beatrice & Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi celebrated their wedding with their closest family, including Her Majesty The Queen & The Duke Of Edinburgh.

Princess Beatrice wore a vintage dress by Norman Hartnell & The Queen Mary diamond fringe tiara, both belonging to Her Majesty The Queen. The tiara was worn by Her Majesty on her wedding day in 1947.

I was so incredibly honoured to photograph their wedding day, a certain milestone of my career. A huge thanks to Gillian Lawtie.
