Thank you very much again for these great photos, mtbcm! I've never seen any pictures of Maria zu Hohenlohe-Langenburg as a bride and I'm quite impressed! This was a beautiful dress for a beautiful woman! :)

I thank you, Elsa, for creating this space for other weddings. It's nice for not-so-much-talked-about weddings, like the ones I'm trying to post today.

And, I agree, Maria was beautiful, perfect! and her brother Christian - what can I say he was gorgeous :o .

Regards,
mtbcm :)

Wedding of Duchess of Alba with Jesus Aguirre

16th March 1978

Wedding of Duchess of Alba with Jesus Aguirre


Six years after becoming widow and with her son, Carlos, Duke of Huéscar, as Godfather the Duchess of Alba married in a ceremony held at Palace of Liria Chappel.

The new duke was Jesús Aguirre y Ortiz de Zárate, writer, theologist and Professor.

The Duchess was dressed by Dafnis in beige with pink flowers and green leaves.
Jewels were a pearl necklace and earrings in pear shape ending with pure diamonds from her mother and a precious bracelet given to her by Queen Victoria Eugenia.

The wedding was conducted by Priest Martín Patino.

In the end the wedding wasn’t as intimate as the Duchess had suggested being attended by hundreds of guests. Around Cayetana all her sons and in first row the little Eugenia, also attended the Dukes of Badajoz, Dukes of Soria, Alfonso de Borbón and Carmen Martínez-Bordiu Dukes of Cadiz among others.

Carlos Fitz-James Stuart, Duke of Huéscar, with Matilde de Solis-Beaumont y Martínez

18th June 1988

Wedding of Carlos Fitz-James Stuart, Duke of Huéscar, with Matilde de Solis-Beaumont y Martínez de Campos, daughter of Marquis de la Motilla


18th June 1988, the day Duchess Alba fulfilled her dream to see her eldest son married in Seville at the main Altar of the Cathedral.

The bride was 23 years old and the groom 40.

Matilde was the third bride of the Century to be allowed to wed at the main Altar. The first one was Doña Esperanza de Borbón and the second was her mother-in-law Duchess of Alba.

The wedding was attended by 1500 guests.

Matilde dressed a gown designed by Cerezal, in silk and organza, in pure lines and train of 5 metres. The people immediately classified her gown as the 8 degrees' gown, because the train occupied the 8 degrees that took to the altar.

Matilde wore the Russian Tiara and Duke of Huéscar dressed the outfit of “Real Maestranza”.

The wedding was officiated by Opus Dei Priest and brother of the bride, Manuel de Solís.

As a curiosity, at the wedding banquet were served only cold dishes due to the amount of guests and because cooking for so may people would add some danger to the ancient kitchen of the House-Palace of Marquis de la Motilla.

Los Dukes de Huéscar had 2 sons: Fernando and Carlos.

They were divorced in the end of the century. Matilde has remarried and Carlos has a relation with Alicia Koplowitz.

While browsing through an old Town & Country (Feb 2005)magazine, I found the story of how Max proposed to Vanessa.

----

Vanessa von Bismarck, pr executive:

He and I had been talking marriage for a while, and I kept saying that he needed to have a ring. Nothing special, but he had to show he had thought about it. Months went by; no ring. In February last year, I noticed he was frantically looking for something. Turned out he had lost my ring. We looked everywhere; a hypnotist was consulted, and a psychic- to no avail. After two months, his mother found it. Very relieved, he decided to plan a trip for us to Harbour Island. Once there, he had the genius idea to propose underwater, a plan capsized by the slight panic attack I had when I was told that I had to dive through a tunnel (not knowing he had the ring on the string of his bathing suit). Finally he proposed on the balcony of our hotel room: anything at that point to hand over the ring.

Princess Tseyang Palmo & Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche 2006

not a european royal wedding, but something different from an eastern royal wedding...

Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, left, places a ring on his bride Princess Tseyang Palmo's finger during their Tibetan Buddhist royal wedding ceremony in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada on Saturday, June 10, 2006.
The 43-year-old Sakyong, son of the movement's founder, is the spiritual leader for more than 10-thousand Shambhala Buddhists around the world.




before that, there was a ceremony 2 days earlier..

Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, left, and Princess Tseyang Palmo participate in a Tibetan Buddhist purification ceremony to mark the beginning of a three-day wedding festival in Halifax, Canada, on Thursday, June 8, 2006. The couple will be married on Saturday. The teachings of Shambhala are based on creating an enlightened kingdom through meditation and training.

Princess Tseyang Palmo & Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche 2006

i posted this over the weekend but it appears to have disappeared so here it is again. From the Chronicle Herald of June 10, 2006:

The Cunard Event Centre on the Halifax waterfront had a busy opening weekend, as almost 1,500 people gathered from around the globe to witness the marriage of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and Princess Tseyang Palmo.

Sakyong Rinpoche is the eldest son of Trungpa Rinpoche, the founder of Shambhala Buddhism. His marriage to the princess represents a significant linking of lineages for Buddhists around the world.

The princess wore a chuba, a Tibetan garment of embroidered white silk, with her black hair in a single plait.

Lady Diana, the wife of the groom’s late father, presided over the ceremony, performing purification ceremonies and blessing the couples’ union.

The bride’s family members came from Tibet to join in the celebrations, and Ms. Bonzi said other members of the Shambhala community came from as far away as Europe and Chile.

The bride and groom were married in a civil service in Colorado last summer, and Ms. Bonzi said they will eventually have a third "less westernized" wedding for the bride’s side of the family in India
