Royal wedding in Sweden

Saturday, June 13th

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended the royal wedding of Prince Carl Philip of Sweden and Miss Sofia Hellqvist taking place in Stockholm, Sweden. Queen Margrethe, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie also attended the wedding. 

A wedding is always worth waiting for and a royal wedding even more, if you are royalist of course. What a magnificent wedding with stunning dresses, flowers everywhere and tiaras. Weddings are magical, a specific atmosphere you hardly can describe. I'm sure you're feel the same way. It is part of the game when being a royalist. Am I right? Most of you probably were cleaned to the screen to follow when the guests arrived, when we first saw the groom and of course the excitement to see the bride in her wonderful wedding gown, long veil and flawless makeup. What a moment when Miss Sofia walked down the aisle. With slow and well-balanced steps she walked next to her father to Prince Carl Philip, who soon would become her husband. For every step she took was a step closer to a entire new world as Princess Sofia of Sweden, Duchess of Värmland. A sweet moment which will be remembered for many years.

At the wedding the Crown Prince couple represented Denmark, such as Queen Margrethe who in fact wore a stunning red gown the same as at her 75th birthday gala dinner. Great to see the Queen in an age of 75 year and still wear a red gown. That's style. Prince Joachim and Princess Marie also attended the wedding. Princess Marie was dressed in a slim greenish fitted gown wearing her wedding tiara. We simply have some very good looking royal women in Denmark.

I really hoped that we would see a new gown and we did. The most dazzling gown I think we have seen in quite some years. According to Billed Bladet her magnificent gown is created by Birgit Hallstein. I hope to be able to confirm it. Here I want to thanks all you who have given me the info about this dress. It features a wide, high neckline and a low V-neck on her back and a long train which was only seen on very few dresses that day. At the front lace work have been added down the dress. The fitted shape of a classic 50s dress gave her slim waist all attention and the light blue colour is great next to her brown hair and porcelain skin. She wore the Swedish Order with the Order Star from her right shoulder to left side hip. A question has appeared. At the weeding, Freja Kjellberg wore a dress very much similar to the one Mary was wearing, here. Could they really be wearing the same gown? This makes me question if Mary's creation in fact is made by Birgit Hallstein. I can't wait to hear your thoughts about this subject.

Heaven with the good eyes suggested that her silver glitter pumps, matching the new clutch, are from Gianvito Rossi and I think that's absolutely right. As many other guests at the wedding, Mary wore a silver square clutch. Heaven also gave me an idea about the new silver clutch, which is mainly why I began looking for and ID.  A few minutes later I found what I'm sure is her clutch at J. Furmai. Her outfit became even more gorgeous with the two Marianne Dulong pearl bracelet and her wedding earrings. A little something from her own big day back in 2004. I'm also amazed by her beautiful hairstyle with the diamonds hairpiece. I literally can't stop staring at the pictures of the couple; Frederik in his traditional black suit wearing all his medals and Mary in a elegant blue gown with her wedding jewellery on. A wedding to remember!

On behalf of Styleofmary and all its readers I would like to wish the happy couple, all the best in the future and from Denmark a congratulation is now said!
