A very lovely and animated Charlene here. The thumbs up from the Prince cracked me up. But overall - it looked like a fun, family event. good for them.

Lovely pictures of a happy family occasion. The bride looked really beautiful and I love her wedding gown. Also noticed how much P Charlene resembles her mother, who at 50+, is still a very attractive lady.

Strange that Gareth converted to Catholicism but didn't bother to get married in a Catholic church.

The Wittstock Family

The priest who married them is Catholic, Father Bill, I think? Or am I mistaken?

Yes but it just looks like a blessing not a proper Catholic wedding as there is no alter and the priest isn't in robes. I would have thought that if someone felt strongly enough to convert to a particular religion they would certainly want to adhere to it's teachings, in this case that marraige is a sacrament and should be administered via a nuptial mass. I suppose some people will point to this as proof that he only converted so he could be chosen as Gabriella's godfather.

I am catholic, and I had only a blessing for mu wedding, my children had also a blessing,there are rarely a nuptial mass exept when a royal is marrying.
the blessing is a sacrement as a mass and no need to have a alter, there is no communion.
The wedding of Albert and Charlene was in the honor courtyard of the palace not in a church
Roisin the wife of Gareth is irish and is catholic and her little daughter was baptized in the catholic religion.
Gareth is the godgather of Gabriella, he is now catholic and he could be the godfather of Gabriella, he was choosen by Prince Albert and Charlene,

IN this video, G Wittstock axplains how P Albert and Charlene asked him to be godfather of P Gabriella

I'm a catholic too and I had a nuptial mass as most practising catholics do not just royals. When I read that Gareth was marrying in the hotel garden I still expected this just as Albert and Charlene had it in the palace courtyard. The fact that he was also marrying a catholic makes it even more strange I think.

I am a practising Catholic and marriage does not need to be administered during a mass to be valid. Most of practising catholics choose to live it during a mass but this sacrament during a ceremony is valid without the celebration of Holy mass.

Yes I know a full mass isn't necessary but my point is that it is the full spiritual scenario on offer and I would have thought that a catholic convert would have especially desired this, especially when he is marrying a fellow catholic.

Mrs. Melina Premiere, I'm catholic and, as many Catholics did, I had a nuptial mass even if I did't belong to any Royal Family.

Well, if a nuptial mass is not compulsory, then I guess it is the choice of the bridal couple.

Blessing or mass, it is the personal choice of the couple, it cannot be discuted


Gareth is catholic, he is married with a catholic woman and he is the godfather of Gabriella. he is the uncle of the child and he has the right to be it.

I think that the aim of a forum is to exchange personal point of view! In here there's a kind of "one man show". If you think like this "one man show" it's ok otherwise you will repeated to exhuations its idea is the right one!

I agree...I find it a bit odd that a Catholic couple-especially with one of them a recent convert- would choose to marry outside of the Nuptial Mass. But maybe they preferred the informality of an outdoor ceremony?

The setting looked spectacular.

And the bride is very beautiful even thought I didn't care for her dress much at all.

My thoughts on what I've seen in the pictures - everyone looks very happy and like they're having fun.

I don't like Roisin's dress, I think it looks cheap (I'm sure it wasn't), from my old-fashioned viewpoint female guests don't wear any shade of white, cream, ivory and mother-in-laws don't wear black (however chic it may look).

I find it a bit weird they sold/gave the pictures of their wedding to a magazine.
They always struck me as a discreet family.

The wedding looked beautiful though. Nice setting. I like hairdo of the bride.

She lived a very long life and had the joy of seeing her granddaughter become Princess Consort of Monaco and the mother of twins.

That must have made her immensely proud....RIP.
