The wedding of Prince Gustav and Carina Axelsson

03 June 2022


Who is the lucky couple getting married? No-one else than Prince Gustav of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and his beloved girlfriend of many years, Carina Axelsson. Both the Crown Prince Couple, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie stayed in Berleburg for a few days to attend the wedding.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary arrived late afternoon on June 3rd. They were to attend the civil wedding of the couple at Schloss Berleburg some hours after they arrived to the castle, which is located in the German state of Nordrein-Westfalen.

Actually, the Crown Prince Couple played a very significant role in Prince Gustav and Carina Axelsson's civil wedding: they acted as witnesses.

Along with the information that the Crown Prince Couple acted witnesses, we also got a photo of the newlyweds and the Danish couple. Sometimes one photo is everything it takes. Sometimes it is simply not enough. This time, we got just enough to tell that Mary wore her outstanding spring dress from Zimmermann. Isn't it beautiful? She wears it for the third time. Mary first wore it in South Korea in 2019 (here). Then later that same year, at the confirmation of Princess Ingrid Alexandra of Norway (here). We like the dress, right?

We also get a glimpse of the accessories Mary had chosen to wear with the floral printed dress. The earrings I can't identify. I think it could be a pair of Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen creations, but I am NOT sure. That stunning golden bangle is from talented Rebekka Notkin and her rather large diamond ring is by Dulong Fine Jewelry. When first wearing the Zimmermann dress in South Korea, Mary matched it with the very same peep-toe pumps. Back then, they were identified as Prada but I have never been able to find the right model. But they are in fact from Prada.

The following day of the civil wedding, the couple celebrated one more time. Around 80 guests were invited to attend the ecclesiastical wedding of Prince Gustav and now, Princess Carina. The ceremony took place in the castle church at Schloss Berleburg, such as the following dinner

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary were here accompanied by Prince Joachim and Princess Marie.

We have very few photos from the wedding, but from what I have seen, I bet it was a magnificent and memorable day for all of them. Especially, the married coupled.

Indeed, we have only a couple of photos from the arrival of the castle church of the Danish royal family members. Of course, I wish we had just a few more photos because Mary looked so amazing in her printed Erdem dress. This is yet another reused dress from her wardrobe. She wore back in 2017 at the birthday dinner for the King and Queen of Norway (here).

Mary accessorized the lovely Erdem dress with her wedding tiara (clever choice) and morning gift (also a clever choice) for the occasion. Love that she wore something from her own wedding! A closer look revealed that she styled her outfit with a silver clutch from J. Furmani. We want more photos, right?! Wonderful match to the Dulong Fine Jewelry diamond ring.
