The wedding - is catholic and protestant right?? Not only one of it... It look like special mixture of both. Am I right??
Exactly, it was an ecomenical wedding. This is quite frequent in Germany nowadays. In my grandparents days it still was no-go to have marriages of mixed confessions. Nowadays that's no problem anymore.
1. this may be totally off base but were the man and woman singing earlier on the upper level singing in Hebrew? I thought I recognised a few words. Perhaps part of the peace process and involvement of the couple?
EDIT: The man who sung is wearing a yarmulke now that I can see him, so i'm assuming they were singing in Hebrew. I think it's great they had things from different religions in their wedding.
2. what were the items the Protestant priest gave to the couple a few minutes ago? One was a book, another looked like an olive leaf...
1. Yes, they incorporated some jewish music into the service. That was because GF has strong connections to Jerusalem.
2. They received a wedding bible as a present from the church community, an olive branch from Jerusalem, a piece of leather with their wedding motto (sorry, I don't know the correct English expression) written by a jewish calligraph. ... Did I forget anything?

I was never disappointed by a weddingdress so much like this time. I liked her pre-wedding style. Not high fashion, but nice looking type-fitting clothes.
This dress was a mess!!!
The jacket was somehow okay and even the upper part was good. But the skirt...oh my dear what were they thinking.
Wolfgang Joop likes the - I don't no the name of that style - but quiletet stripe. Sophie's evening dress a the Monaco wedding was in that style either.
The dress would have been nice, if that striped stuff was somehow over the whole dress. But the tullepatches at the front lokked like she went through a shredder.
The shape in general was okay and fitted her type...but that skirt...and this dress was expensive ......
Her hairstyle and the tiara were nice.
My mother liked the dress because she said it was daringly.
I don't where the Royal Dish poster obtained their so-called information but the Aosta tiara worn by Princess Astrid of Belgium and the wedding tiara worn by Princess Sophie are two completely different items.
I've checked the May 2004 Point de Vue cover story of the wedding of Princess Katharina von Isenburg and Archduke Martin of Austria-Este and her tiara also bears no resemblance whatsoever to the Aosta tiara.

In one of the galleries that Iceflower posted, there is a picture of the horses, and one of them appears to be have tripped/fainted/fallen down or whatever, and it looks like some people are trying to help him get situated.
