Peaches Geldof—model, writer, mother of two—was laid to rest today in Faversham, England. The Hollywood Reporter notes that the funeral was held at the same church where Geldof was married two years ago and where the funeral of her mother, Paula Yates, was held in 2000.

The private event was attended by Kate Moss and her husband Jamie Hince, Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, Rolling Stone Bill Wyman and Alexa Chung, among others. (The Daily Mail has many photos of attendees arriving.) Geldof's father, Bob Geldof, gave the eulogy, reports the BBC. Heartbreakingly, the 25-year-old's sky blue coffin featured a painted picture of her, her husband, their two sons and their pet dogs.
