Bunte also has an article on it:

Elmerice von Habsburg-Lothringen: Liebes-Hochzeit im Schloss | BUNTE.de

It seems that the bride belongs to the Tuscan branch of the Habsburg family. Her grandfather AD Heinrich married morganatically and her father and his siblings were styled as counts of Habsburg-Lotharingen.

Her father uses Archduke title:

"Mr A.T.D. Fairfax and Archduchess Elmerice of Austria
.—The engagement is announced between Alexander, son of the Hon Hugh and Mrs Fairfax, and Elmerice, daughter of Archduke and Archduchess Christoph of Austria"

The big thing on the cake is not a castle, it is the Tower Bridge in London, symbolizing the groom’s home. The smaller building on the cake is symbolizing the family home of the bride’s family, the „Salzburgerhof“ in St. Andrä, Austria.

According to the article the bridal gown is by Austrian firm Doren. They say that she decided againt wearing the family tiara because it didn't fit with the design of the gown, instead she wore her mother's topaz earrings.

Thanks for clarifying about the tiara. The cake is enormous.

I'm curious to know more about that family tiara because I don't know about a tiara in that branch of the family. Maybe it will be seen when her brother Ferdinand Karl marries later this year?


Have there been pictures of the guests? I wonder which Habsburgs were present.

There was a short clip about the wedding last week on ORF. Maybe it is still online then I will post a link. Elmerice is apparently a Countess of Habsburg-Lothringen and not an Archduchess of Austria so the title of the thread is not correct. But there was a very nice interview with her in the wedding clip and I have to say she really is a sweetheart. :-)

It is indeed a Countess. The branch of the family descends from a morganatic marriage of her great-grandfather:

Heinrich von Habsburg-Lothringen-Toskana, Erzherzog von Österreich (1878-1969)
x Karolina Ludescher (1883-1981)
= Heinrich

Heinrich Graf von Habsburg-Lothringen (1908-1968)
x Helvig Schütte (1910-1990)
= Christoph

Christoph Graf von Habsburg-Lothringen (1944)
x Ebba von Mohrenschild (1949)
= Elmerice

Elmerice Gräfin von Habsburg-Lothringen (1984)
x Alexander Fairfax

Apparently Archduke Karl has reinstated all of the morgantaic branches of the Habsburg Family (with the exception of hte meran and Hohenberg branches) to the Titles Archduke/Archduchess. But there is no clear Information when this happened and not all of them are using the Archduke/Archduchess titles.

@Stefan yes I have heard those rumours about the morganatic branches too though I am not sure whether it's true.

I haven't heard of Archduchess Elmerice before, but I looked at the photos and she appears to be quite likeable.

How is she related to Archduke Karl?
