I like the style of the bride's dress, but I'm not so sure about the sleeves. Her veil and tiara are pretty. Many of the guests had very lovely hats.

Can someone please explain the family relationship to Sunny Von Bulow's children Prince Alex and Princess Ala Von Auersperg?

As far as I know, there are virtually no relationships between Alex and Ala Auersperg and the rest of von Auerspergs. Alex and Ala rarely if ever appear during the family gatherings, such as weddings: in fact, they don't even use their titles or the von Auersperg as their surname (just Auersperg, without von).
Even if there had been any connection between the Auerspergs and Sunny’s family, the Auerspergs might have distances themselves from their American relatives after Sunny’s coma and the following court case. However, I doubt there had ever been any sort of relationship at all: Prince Alfred was always the black sheep of the family and I’ve read that a lot of Auerspergs didn’t like his profession (tennis instructor).
None of the Auerspergs (apart from Alex and Ala, naturally) were present at Sunny’s memorial service in New York (I think it was either in January or February of this year).


Thank you for the pictures, iceflower!
The bride and groom look very happy. They chose interesting dresses for the flower girls, which at least matched the groom's tie.

I'm absolutely delighted to see Prince Franz, he looks fit and in good health. The picture of Helene, Elizabeth, Marie and Maria Anna is delightful as well.

I like the Duke and Duchess of Braganza very much though I have not got a clue who they are. And I feel for Helene, she looks like a different relative in comparison to her sisters.

The duke is the head of the Portuguese royal house and would be king of Portugal if the country hadn't abolished the monarchy. The couple lives in Sintra near Lisbon and has 3 children.

Nice pictures! I have not a clue who the bride and bridegroom are... but nevertheless.I like the dress, simple and elegant. The orange tie is strange. Why choose orange. (if you are not dutch...) It doesnot match her bouquet.
The picture of the "bayern" sisters is nice. But I agree with susan alicia... Helene is so different. She is so short.... I feel for her. I would feel very insecure standing next to my goodlooking tall sisters.

All my relatives are taller than me. When we pose for pictures like the Bayern sisters one, I just smile and take pride in myself.

And rightly so Helene also looks very secure. It was not so much her height as her weight I was thinking of (there is a pressure on women to be slim).

Thank you Stefan for the pictures, I got to see some familiar faces

It is unbelievable how agil Princess Therese of Bavaria still is. She is still so youthful and such a nice woman.

Has the plans for this wedding been changed after the death some days before the cerimony of Countess Eleonore von Waldburg zu Zeil und Trauchburg, the great-aunt of the bride?

Personally I think Helene is the most attractive of the five sisters, she's got great curves, which coming from a gay guy says something I know many straight men who aren't into bean poles. I hope that, if it is what she wants, that she finds that someone special.

Well sorry, but why is it unfair to talk about bigger people as "fat" or make comments about their weight, but perfectly okay to refer to thin woman as "bean poles"?That's hypocritical...

Never understood this double standard.

I mean, I get what you wanted to say, but it was a bad choice how you did it.
