Would this be the 1st Royal Wedding to take place in Serbia of recent memory?

No, Prince Mihailo last October was. Mihailo's wedding was the first royal wedding in Serbia since 1922.

What a chaotic wedding! People moving everywhere and getting in the road. Phone cameras everywhere inside the church!

Is the bride a good friend of Crown Princess Victoria’s to have had her as the matron of honour?

Based on the photo of Victoria with the Swedish ambassador at the palace after the ceremony, I'd say yes.

And yes according to royal musings, a reception will be held tonight at the palace.

Do Serbian royals not have any relationship with the other European royal families? Brits? Lux? Belgium? etc

They have close ties with British and Lux royals, but not so with Belgium ones.

The Spanish and Greeks certainly as seen at the wedding.

They also used to at least have a relationship with the British royals. They lived in London for many years. Elizabeth is godmother to Crown Prince Alexander, and I believe Anne is godmother to Peter. Prince Philip's niece Christina (the daughter of his sister Sophie) was married to Prince Andrew (younger brother of Peter II and Prince Tomislav). Philip was godfather to both children of this marriage, Christopher and Maria Tatiana.

We also see them commonly at Swedish events. And Victoria is maid of honor so obviously the bond goes stronger then the rare invitation.

Guillaume and Sibylla of Luxembourg were in attendance at the wedding.

Isabelle of Liechtenstein also attended. Though she is distantly related through the groom's mother.

CP Alexander said 2 years ago that Brits(Prince Charles etc.) always require very heavy security previously given by approved government body and Serbia is not top of the security list when their government body is concerned.

Crown prince Alexander and crown princess Katherine told at an interview in swedish media some years ago, that they are friends with king Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia and visit Sweden privately sometimes.
So maybe because of this, Victoria is also friends with Alexander's children.

Yes I saw Queen but was remarking that it was strange not to see her sister with her.

I am sorry. I must have misread your post.

On a different note, Princess Danica looked nice. I like how simple her wedding ensemble was.

Congratulations to the couple!
Thank you to all those who shared the photos and videos of today. It's nice to see a good royal turnout. It would have been nice to see a British royal, I'm also surprised they didn't turn up.
I'm not sure if I like Danica's dress though, it looks a little like a hotel dressing gown to me. She still manages to look nice however, even if the dress isn't my cup of tea!
