On July 2nd, 2005 archduke Maximilian of Austria got married to Ms. Maya Askari in Rome (at the Vatican actually).

Maya Askari was born in Iraq, and grew up and lives in London, where the couple met.

The bride's gorgeous gown is designed by Giambatto Valli (previously working for Ungaro).

Titles

Actually, this guy is definitely not an archduke of Austria, since Austria has abolished aristocracy in 1918. Which means that technically speaking he's Maximilian Habsburg, no more, no less.

A bit more info on the groom :

His Imperial and Royal Highness Maximilian Heinrich Ferdinand, Prince Imperial and Archduke of Austria, Prince Royal of Hungary and Bohemia, was born on February 8th, 1961 in Boulogne-Billancourt (France).

He's the son of Archduke Ferdinand of Austria (° 1918) and countess Helene zu Toerring-Jettenbach (° 1937)

Maximilian has two sisters (of which one died) :

- archduchess Elisabeth, who married James Litchfield in 1982, she died in 1983.
- archduchess Sophie, who married prince Mariano zu Windisch-Grätz in 1990 - they have 3 children (Maximilian, Ferdinando and Larissa).

Helene's mother wasn't Helena. She was Elisabeth of Greece. She was the daughter of Prince Nicholas and Grand Duchess Elena Vladimorvna of Russia, and the sister of Marina, Duchess of Kent.

Also, if anyone cares, Grand Duchess Vladimir was only HIH after her marriage, as were all the who married into the IF. There was no dual kingdom. Prior to her marriage she was a (mere) Highness, but her Russian style of Imperial Highness outranked & replaced that style.

The groom carried a uniform of the order of Malta, while the bride wore a gown in empire style, made by Giambattista Valli. The tiara was also worn by the groom's sister, Archduchess Sophie (now Fürstin zu Windisch-Graetz), on her own wedding day.

Information on this Fringe tiara can be found here:
Archduchess Sofia of Habsburg & Prince Mariano Hugo zu Windisch-Graetz 1990


Maya Askari is a writer and a member of the International Network for Contemporary Iraqi Artists.

Her gown is lovely but I don't like the design of the sleeves. Who knows, maybe it will grow on me. The rest of the gown is beautiful however. I love the neckline, the silhouette, and the veil. Her tiara is also stunning.
