Tsar Nicholas II of Russia and Princess Alix of Hesse - 1894

The new tsar of Russia and Queen Victoria's favorite granddaughter were married on November 14, 1894 at the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia. Just weeks before, Alix took the name Aleksandra Feodorovna when she was confirmed into the Russian Orthodox Church.

Her Gown and Cloak....

According to Russian Imperial/Royal Protocol, the Bride would wear an Ermine trimmed Imperial Coronation Mantle over Her gown, as can be seen in your picture. Poor Princess Alexis nearly collapsed when the Mantle with the long train was draped over Her delicate shoulders.... She was unable to move unaided! However, She looked very Regal.....
She would have to wear the same Mantle/Cloak again at the time of the Coronation. One hopes it did not cause Her any back problems......

Oh sorry, i read you post too quick and thought you left ut the two gentlemen I mentioned, which you obviously did not.
As for the ladies, standing it seems to be Alix (l) and Victoria (r), and seated Irene (l), Ella (m) and Victoria-Melita (r). So you have them all right indeed, the only ones missing are the husbands of Victoria and Irene.

Just in case, the lady of the image its not Alexandra, but her mother in law Maria Fyodorovna. A wee note to avoid confusions

One would have thought with Alexandra marrying Nicholas on Marie Feodorovna's birthday this would have endeared the Dowager Empress (Tsarina) to her new daughter-in-law.
In Nicholas and Alexandra, Robert K. Massie wrote that before Alexandra married Nicholas :

From a red velvet cushion, Marie (the Dowager Empress) herself lifted the sparkling diamond nuptial crown and settled it carefully onto Alexandra's head.
