HSH Erbprinz Christian zu Solms-Hohensolms-Lich and Countess Christina Douglas, 2009

Hereditary Prince Christian zu Solms-Hohensolms-Lich and Countess Christina Douglas married in a religious cerimony in Lich on Saturday, 5 September 2009. They had previously married in a civil cerimony in Vienna on 13 December 2008.
The religious marriage took place on the first birthday of their son Louis, born on 5 September 2008.

The Prince was born in 1975, and is the eldest son and heir of Furst Philipp-Reinhard zu Solms-Hohensolms-Lich and his wife Furstin Marie, née Fouché d'Otrante.
The Princess was born in 1973, daughter of Count Patrick Douglas and his wife Countess Alexandra, née Freiin von Berlichingen.

Pictures of the religious wedding are in this site (royaltyguide.nl).

Thank you very much for the information on and pictures from the wedding, MAfan!
The bride looks very beautiful, although I'm not sure about the rather daring design of the dress (for a Royal wedding).
I was thrilled to see so many familiar faces: Albrecht and Marie Louise of Castell-Castell (I love Marie Louise’s ensemble), Ludwig and Yvonne of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn (another lovely dressed lady, although I'd prefer a hat) and of course, Princess Benedikte.

Exactly, Christina is a second cousin once removed of the Duchess in Bavaria and of Rosita Spencer-Churchill.

Thank you for magnificent report and great pictures, Stefan!
It was very nice of Fürstin Gabriela to let you take her picture: she's one wonderful lady for sure.
