Hi, Alexandria.
The "formal" reason I don't know.
Maybe one of our Royal Experts know the official reason :) .
I have always seens that gesture towards the Queen as a courtesy gesture from King Simeon.

Don Juan Carlos had previous engagements so he only attended the party.

The wedding gown was designed by Beatriz Basaldúa.

Glad you enjoy it.

Regards.

Thank you so much for sharing all these wonderful photos, mtbcm! I can see you have many great pics from royal weddings :)

Maria was a truly awesome bride and it's good to see this couple still seem so harmonic and classy a decade after their knot. It's a pleasure to see them together. Thanks again.

You can not even imagine how many pics of weddings I've been saving for years. I am so glad that now, with your permission of course, I can share it with others. :)
Regards.

Thank you for your explanation mtbcm. Another question: If King Simeon escorted Queen Sofia after the church service, whom did Queen Margarita leave the church with?
I look forward to seeing more of your pictures! :) There is so little seen of this lovely couple.

Queen Margarita left the Church by the hand of the father of the bride.

As I saw in some other weddings. The mother of the groom leaves with the father of the bride. And the father of the groom leaves with the mother of the bride. When King and Queen attends the wedding, the godfather leaves the church with the Queen and the godmother with the King. But I'll have to check this...
Thanks for your comments.
Regards.

Maria was a lovely bride indeed! Her delicate figure inspires that serenity all the brides should inspire!
The only thing that strikes me is the large shoulderpaths... they look awkward in a wedding dress!... But then again, if I remember it right, everybody was wearing them in 1994.

Maria Garcia de la Rasilla y de Gortazar was born on May 13th 1970, while Prince Constantin was born on December 5th 1967. It means that Maria was 24 and Konstantin 26 years old.
