This past weekend, Queen Elizabeth’s cousin, Ivar Mountbatten married his partner, James Coyle in a beautiful and intimate wedding ceremony at a chapel in Devon.
This wouldn’t ordinarily be news except that this was the first-ever gay royal wedding.
And, as because we all love royal things and all royal food especially, here’s a round-up of all the food things we know about this particular royal wedding.
Well, first up it was about the wedding itself.
The pair has always been upfront about wanting the wedding to be low-key and different from the others. In a recent interview, James told to The Royal UK:-
“We went to a wedding a couple of weeks ago we are not doing that at all. There will be nothing like cutting cakes. We’re not having a first dance as well”.

He continued: “Me and Ivar have decided to have lovely food and really good music. But there won’t be two men in tuxedos on a cake, white doves or anything twee or contrived like that”.

That doesn’t mean there wasn’t any cake, but the idea was tossed around.
In the same interview, Ivar also said: “We’ll probably have cheese, instead of the wedding cake”.
The newlyweds had their royal wedding catered by Posh Nosh. In the same interview, Ivar said: “Jimmy’s pre-wedding diet went out of the window for the day as we had 5 different starters to choose from”.

It’s likely there were great snack options throughout the evening. We can say this as it is evidenced by all the pictures posted on Ivar’s Instagram account.
James made a croissant-laden appearance on Ivar’s Insta as well. It is not quite food information related to the royal wedding so much as it is to say the honeymoon looks fantastic.
