Archduke Karl of Austria & Baroness Francesca Thyssen-Bornemisza 1993

This wedding took place at the Austrian Sanctuary of Mariazell, on the 31st of January.

The wedding gown was designed by Versace and the veil was from the Habsburg Family. The bride didn't have a bouquet but an old and valious Mass Book.

Thank you mtbcm and pdas1201 for posting the photos. What a beautiful winter wedding! The snow on the bare trees makes a wonderful backdrop. I'm assuming the gown was two parts; the outside part and this underneath? So much work must have gone into it. I love the little flower girls' coats. http://img198.imageshack.us/my.php?i...edding10pj.jpg :)

Yes, a truly beautiful winter wedding!!! The similar white coats of the bridesmaids and the bride are just adorable! Does anyone have a pic of her wedding dress, as well? You can get a glimpse of it on the portraits with the Prince, but what about the full view of the dress?

Thanks for all the wonderful photos. The wedding dress and the young girls coats are simply beautiful! With all the snow and bare trees, it looks like it was a real winter wonderland. Gorgeous!

Thanks for the great photos. This is one of my favorite wedding dresses. I love that it isn't a plain or just white wedding dress. The gold tones and creams work so well. Plus the outside winter theme was great. Very different and very memorable.

No one has commented on her father's costume.

Just how rich is her father? I read that this couple live separate lives but attend many functions together as well as support each other publicly.

Who were some of her guests? She has a different sense of style, but it works well with her and that beautiful hair. From her pictures here, her wedding was one of the nicest Winter Weddings.

This was a very beautiful wedding. Not too many royals have winter weddings.

The Baronness's bare shoulder dress was beautiful. I thought her jacket was very unique and elegant, not to mention warm too!

what a beautiful wedding it was, terribly romantic!

I wondered though, as some of Archduke Otto's brothers (Robert and Carl-Ludwig?) opposed the marriage, did they all attend the weddiging? Were Carl-Christian and Marie-Astrid there for example?

I have checked the Point de Vue coverage of the wedding (#2323 9 Feb 1993) and although the report states 70 members of the House of Habsburg attended, no names are mentioned. The photographs are of the bridal party and "other" Royal guests; apart from Archduke Otto's family there are no Habsburgs pictured. Still a mystery, sorry.
