I thought the same. She is radiant, and even though she is not a natural beauty, she looks very nice indeed! I especially like the veil, and her tiara beats the ones any of the crownprincesses was wearing.

Very nice to see that the Orleans family is so faithfull to their aunt Therese de Orleans-Braganca (sister of the late countess of Paris). I also liked the pictures of the other guests (it is always a joy to see Dom Duarte and his lovely wife Dona Isabel) , so thanks to all the posters of these pictures.

This pic has been removed from Danjel's site, so I am attaching a pic of Princess Marie zu Wied, now Hereditary Duchess of Württemberg, at her wedding in 1993 wearing the tiara.
The tiara worn by Duchess Fleur is a dfferent smaller one which was also worn by Duchess Marie-Thérèse a sister of duke Carl, on her Wedding to Prince Henri of France, Count of Clermont, now Comte de Paris in 1957. The tiara in the Picture above was worn by Duchess Diane and by Duchess Marie on their Wedding Days.

Here's the information advanced by DPA, about the wedding.
(My German is not that good, so forgive any faults)


The civil wedding - Schloss Altshausen, August 8th, 2003
The religious wedding - Schloss Altshausen, August 9th, 2003

Wedding celebration of the European high aristocracy: Duchess Fleur of Wuerttemberg married the Austrian count Moritz von Goeess, on Saturday in the castle church of Altshausen (Baden-Wuerttemberg). Among the 460 guests, the catholic wedding was attended by the king of Spain, Juan Carlos, who was the testimony of the 25-year-old bride. The other testimony was the former king of Bulgaria Simeon, who could not attend the ceremony, at the last moment; the then Bulgarian Prime Minister let himself be represented by his wife, Margarita. Besides, the ceremony was also attended by Gloria von Thurn und Taxis, the Dukes of Bragança, the Princes of Liechtenstein and the Prime Minister Erwin Teufel.

Pope John Paul II sent his blessings to the couple.

The glowing bride carried a white organza dress, adorned with Brussels’ lace and veil of four meters long, that was a creation of the Parisian couturier Catherine Puget. The French hairdresser Alexandre made an artful up-do with her long black hair and decorated it with white flowers and a tiara.

The duchess is the youngest daughter of Duke Carl and Duchess Diane von Wüerttemberg. Her 37-year-old groom is the son of Count Ernst-Friedrich and Countess Gabrielle (the former countess zu Salm-Reifferscheidt-Krautheim und Dyck), whose palace is located in Kaernten, since the 17th century. The couple went to live in Vienna, where count Moritz works for an industrial enterprise.


The baroque church was decorated with thousands of blue and yellow (the national colours) flowers. Due to the heat felt on the occasion, the guests had to refresh themselves by using the program of the ceremony as fans.

The house of Wüerttemberg is one of the eldest aristocratic houses in Germany.

Fleur is the daughter of Duke Carl von Württemberg and Princess Diane of France.
Moritz is a son of the late Count Ernst Friedrich von Goëss (*1932 +1999) and Countess Gabrielle zu Salm-Reifferscheidt-Krautheim und Dyck (*1941 +1985).

Fleur didn't wear the "bridal tiara", actually. If you look at larger pictures of the two you will see that they are very different. The bridal tiara is much bigger.

Fleur wore Queen Olga's small tiara. It was worn by Marie Therese at her wedding to the current Comte de Paris, as well as by Duchesses Mathilde and Marie (nee Wied) at their pre-wedding balls.
