If I had to guess, I'd say they were on the mobile with Patriarch Ilia ("the man behind the marriage" ) who was in Germany for medical reasons and therefore unable to officiate.

Patriarch Ilia II did not officiate ... Is he so ill? I find it strange that Patriarch Ilia II withdrew from the ceremony due to health reasons.

Apparently, the Georgian Patriarch was flown to Germany on February 4 after having been hospitalized in Tbilisi for a fever. Patriarch Ilia's health also prevented him from attending the enthronization of Russian Patriarch Kirill.

Thanks for information! I hope that Patriarch Ilia II get well soon. Still it is odd that he was unable to officiate.

It is hard to tell because there are no photos of the reception. I am sure that Georgian mass media would have informed us about any singificant Royals attending the ceremony. My best guess is that diplomatic corps substituted the European Royal houses.

Rustavi 2

Wedding ceremony of two branches of the Bagrationi dynasty has been held. Horsemen have accompanied the groom from the Darejani Palace to Sameba Cathdral. Several thousand people have attending the ceremony. Three thousand guests have been invited to the wedding of the representatives of the royal family.

Father accompanied groom into the church today. She walked through rows of `Chokhosnebi`. Before the wedding ceremony, Anna Bagration-Gruzinski and Davit Bagration-Mukhraneli received Eucharist at Svetitskhoveli Church of Mtskheta town.

Representativesof the Georgian society consider the marriage as a significant event of historical importance.

`It is a very important day in the life of our country and the Bagrationi dynasty today. The two branches of the Bagrationis who parted from each other long ago, are merging today. This wedding may have a historical significance for our country in the future`, Mariam Lortkipanidze, academician of historical sciences said.

Family members and relatives of the bride hope, the marriage of Bagrationi branches will bring prosperity to Georgia.

The Bagrationi dynasty was the ruling family of Georgia. Their ascendency lasted from the early Middle Ages until the early 19th century.

The Grand Duchess Maria was in Russia from 30 Jan to 3 Feb. While in Moscow she attended the installation of Patriarch Kirill (see press release). Grand Duke George works for a living and generally does not take part in royal events. And you are correct, at 94 years of age, Grand Duchess Leonida is in rather frail health and thus abstains from travelling.

However, as FabianJ noted earlier, it does appear that Grand Duchess Leonida's elder daughter Helene Kirby was at the wedding.

It's indeed so strange to see a couple talking on the phone during their wedding... It's the first time in my life I see such a thing haha.

The Princess's dress is lovely.
The Prince is, as lucien said a very serious young man.

I just knew it's the second marriage for the Princess. The eastern Orthodox Church accepts to marry divorced people? or did she ask the annulment of her first marriage?

There is no much information about Princess Anna's first marriage. At the same time, it is worth noting that almost all modern couples have got a religious wedding in a church of their liking and civil ceremony in a municipal registry. Thus, it is possible that Princess Anna had to ask for the annulment of her first marriage. Given the fact that Patriarch Ilia II was personally interested in the marriage between Prince David and Princess Anna, it would fair to presume that the annulment was given without any problems or delays.

Georgia may become the first Orthodox Christian country to restore monarchy.

The bride looked very pretty in her simple dress and veil. Shame there aren't any better ones of the dress.

Thanks for such amazing compilation of photos! The ceremony was wonderful. The reception seemed to have a lot of national dances. The national costumes were impressive as well.
At the same, it is worthy noting that there is a photo of Prince David dancing with a lady in a blue dress. However, there is no a single photo of Prince David dancing with Princess Anna.

It was my pleasure to do so!

I only wish that the couple had lived happily ever after () like I originally imagined they would.

All the Orthodox Churches ( Georgian, Russian, Greek etc.) accept second and third marriages. In other words you can get married in the church 3 times whether divorced or widowed. You don't need an annulment to get married a second time because the Orthodox Church grants divorces. I must say, they offer a fair number of choices for those you have second thoughts .

Dear Al bina,

You might be interested to know (since I myself was!) that the lady dancing with Prince David is his sister Maria, who came to the wedding with her young son. Thus, all three of David's siblings (Maria, Irakly, and Ugo) were present, as was his mother. On the bride's side, both her parents were there, as were her two little daughters. I believe that her sister Maya attended too.

Also, to my surprise, I came across another photo album from the wedding that clearing shows David and Anna kissing...on the lips! So perhaps all the reports were wrong.

Lastly, here is a picture of the wedding cake.

I can't find it again, but I did see a photo where David did have a hint of a smile. She made a lovely bride. It's refreshing to see a wedding that is quite a bit different than usual. May they be happy forever!
