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.

I am not liking Princess Sophie's dress. Hopefully, there will be some better pictures so I can see some of the details.

There is no denying that smile (from either of them really) or that tiara! All three are stunning! They look happy....Good for them!

Thanks!
The wedding bible, a olive leaf from the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem (he said that it was also a family tradition), a piece of leather with their wedding motto upon it and their marriage certificate.

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?

Do you mean the guy who was interviewed when he arrived? That was the designer Wolfgang Joop, head of the label "Wunderkind". He's one of the best known designers in Germany.

Did some of the Thurn und Taxis family attend?
I didn't see either Prince Albert of Monaco or Princess Michael of Kent.

Ooo, which horse was that? When they were getting in the carriage the horse in the front left looked uncomfortable (from the heat maybe), was that the one?

She certainly is never going to make the International Best Dressed list, let alon the Hall of Fame. Maybe she could be the inaugural member of the Hall of Shame instead.

The guy in the red suit is the designer of Sophie's wedding dress. I didn't see what happened to the horse....

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.

Thanks for the info on the designer.

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.
