Here is an article with some photos: https://fr.news.yahoo.com/photos/car...180235470.html

The bride wore a star tiara with a green wreath in her hair. It looks as if the train of her gown is a richly decorated heirloom.

Thanks for the photos!
The couple looks good together. The bride's ensmeble is very complex:a tiara paired with a wreath, a heavy train on a delicate lacy dress.
Is Count Philippe related to Count Rodolphe of Limburg-Stirum, who married Archduchess Marie-Christine?

Very closely related actually. Philippe is the younger brother of Rodolphe.

Thanks for the information! It is great. As far as I can see, the marriage is equal.
I am looking forward to seeing photos of guests.

Stephanie of Luxembourg's family (the de Lannoys) have also intermarried with the Limburg-Stirum dynasty. I wonder if she and Guillaume attended the wedding.

Great Weddings for the Limbourg Stirum.

The first Wedding in the Orleans Family was Princess Hélène with the late Count Evrard de Limbourg Stirum.

Count Evrad is the eldest brother of the groom's father. So they are quite closely related.

Also one son of Count Evrard and Princesse Helene d'Orléans is married to HGD Stephanie of Luxembourg.

The eldest brother of the bride's father is married to Archduchess Andrea, btw.

They are reall very well connected.

I heard, that in Germany is an old rule in some aristocrat-family: they should marry to other aristrocrat because if not, they can lose their title... But if this true or not, I don't know.

They can not loose their title bercause in Germany the former title is now the surname. However in some Families it had been the case that when the oldest son married a commoner and one of his younger brothers married noble that the son who had married noble inherited the Famuiliy property and succeeded as head of the House. But hat is different from Family to Family.

Only 3 belgian Noble Families were in the past Members of the Order of the Golden Fleece /Austria:
The late Prince Antoine de Ligne
The Count of Limbourg-Stirum
and another Noble I forgot his Name.

So actually I think the eldest Sun of Antoine de Ligne is Member of the Golden Fleece, I don't know for the Limbourg Stirum ?

Congratulations to Count Philippe and Countess Caroline.

I loved the bride's dress, the gold on her veil in particular. I wonder if any members of the Belgian RF attended, since the Limburg-Stirum family are members of the Belgian nobility. I can imagine that Archduchess Marie-Christine of Austria attended, given the fact that the groom is her husband's brother.

I prefer it when "normal" people marry royalty, because it makes the royals seem more down to earth and "just like everyone else" and I disagree with arranged marriages. But, of course, if the royal/royal, nobility/nobility or nobility/royalty match is a genuine love one, then that's perfectly okay.
I've gotten the impression that the deposed RFs are more traditional in their values, since most of them seem to marry other royals and nobles and IIRC most of the families also still have male primogeniture.

How much public interest is there with the non-reigning families and nobility in Germany? I see them feature sometimes in magazines like Bunte, so I'm curious.

A good looking and well connected bride and groom.
I think I saw Archduchess Marie-Christine in one of the pictures.
