Prince Heinrich Donatus von Hessen & Countess Floria-Franziska von Faber-Castell 2003

36-year-old Hereditary Prince von Hessen married 28-year-old Countess Floria-Franziska von Faber-Castell, in Kronberg, Frankfurt, on May 17th 2003.
The civil ceremony took place in Wiesbaden, on April 25th.

The groom is the son of Prince Moritz von Hessen and Princess Tatjana zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, while the bride is a niece of the head executive of the Faber Castell pencil company.

Floria-Franziska's gown was rather plain, but she used the same impressive train as Princess Mafalda de Savoy (with floral embroiders in bronze). Also the tiara was the same worn by her mother-in-law and by her sister-in-law, Princess Mafalda de Savoy.

I always have a good laugh when I see pictures of Gloria von Thurn und Taxis. Who wears a floppy beach hat at wedding?!?

The woman in the last set of pictures in 1 & 2 is Marie-Christine von Guggenberg von Riethofen (born Archduchess of Austria)

Heinrich Donatus and Floria's religious wedding ceremony was followed by a grand ball in the Green Salon, a stateroom of Friedrichshof Palace.
