The neckline of Astrid and Maxima's dresses are very similar but the rest of the dress is rather different -- or as different as one can get with wedding dresses.

Maxima's dress was much more structured and the fabric seemed much heavier and stronger than Astrid's dress (see the first post especially by Elsa).

Maxima's dress seemed constricted and difficult to move in whereas Astrid's dress seems free flowing and moved with her body movements rather than dictating how her body moved.

Elsa M., you just ROCK! :)
I just love those wedding pictures, especially those of lesser-known royals: I always learn new things that way!

As for the bride, seldom have I seen a more glamerous one! Wonder though what her dress looks like under that gorgeous coat. Any idea who the designer is?

And one more q: What does/did she do for a living, do we know?

They have two daughters: Anna Benedicte (*2001) and Mathilde Stephanie (*2002).

Baron Karl-Theodor is a lawyer for job and he's a deputy for the CDU/CSU. Until 2002, he worked as a journalist at the daily paper Die Welt.


Princess Olga, I'm sorry, but I don't know who signed the wedding gown. It would be however iteresting if anyone could find out, since Countess Stephenie is well-known for being an elegant and a très chic lady. I remember reading something about a ball, where she appeared wearing a gown by Christian Lacroix, so everything seems to point to her choosing a famous designer for her wedding... but I don't know more about it. I'm sorry.

Count Wolfgang de Limburg Stirum & Martine Eykerman 1999

This one comes from point de vue June 30th 1999.

The wedding of count Wolfgang de Limburg Stirum and Martine Eykerman in Ohain (Belgium). They got married in the St Etienne church, by the parish priest, Christophe Pastuszak.

The party was held at the castle of La Hulpe.

I like the simple elegance of the bride's dress, it goes together well with her bouquet and tiara.

1. the bride with her father, Luc Eyckerman
2. the married couple leaves church
3. posing for photos at the castle of La Hulpe
4. brides children Sophie Cornet d'Elzius and Geoffroy t'Serstevens
