Margarita wore the Kochert Fleurt-de-lys Tiara, a tiara made by the Austrian jeweller Kochert for Queen Maria Luisa of Bulgaria, designed in the colours of the Bulgarian flag; red, green and white.

Thanks a lot for the pictures. I have never seen before pictures of Simeon's wedding.

I think it is normal...until 1990, I did not even know that we had a royal family

Wonderful pictures Mandy! :) Thanks for sharing them.

I have never seen pictures of either Simeon or Margarita's engagement or wedding either, so this is a real treat.

It's funny to see how classical wedding gowns always find some ressemblence in future dresses, even if these are not directly influenced by them... 40 years later, Countess Stephanie von Bismarck-Schönhausen wore a similar version of Margarita's gown... I wonder if she ever saw any photos of this wedding.
