Swedish Royal Wedding of Princess Madeleine & Christopher O’Neill

CONGRATULATIONS to HRH Princess Madeleine and Christopher O’Neill on their wedding!

I’d initially planned on waking up to watch the Swedish royal wedding before ballet class but I’d miscalculated the time different and woke up two hours after the wedding had started. I decided to quickly skim through the tweets and photos to have an idea of what had happened during the wedding. I’ve just watched the live coverage this evening for the wedding ceremony, carriage ride, and arrival at Drottningholm Palace. For those of you who also missed out on today’s royal wedding, take a look at the links of photo galleries, articles, and blogs. I would like to thank my royal tweeters for their excellent live coverage!

The Bride

The ceremony dress:

There had been rumours that Princess Madeleine would wear Valentino and it turns out that the reports were correct! (see photo)

I’m pleased Princess Madeleine had a long train and veil. Sometimes you need fairytale weddings. 😉

Read about the dress and bouquet from the Swedish Royal Court.

I’d also like to point out that I love her smile. I’m very glad she didn’t try to ‘bleach’ her lips like some women do. It’s a lovely shade of pink and look at those pearly white teeth! 🙂

The evening dress:

I liked Princess Madeleine’s white ball gown borrowed from her mother. Tulle embellished with crystals makes a ballerina fly!

The Family & Guests

Royal Hats created several posts on the wedding couple’s family and guests. Have a look!

The Kiss

The Royal Watcher has gifs of all the kisses Chris O’Neill planted on Princess Madeleine. Aww! 🙂
