Matthews and Middleton have been friends for more than a decade, and briefly dated in 2012 only to go their separate ways for a few years. In 2015, the pair reconciled and a year later, they were engaged. The bride—who first stepped into the spotlight as sister Kate Middleton’s wedding in 2011—is an event planner and an author. The groom, meanwhile, co-founded a hedge fund, which he currently oversees and manages.
