In connection with the wedding of Princess Amélia and James Spearman, a new photograph of the couple has been released. It has also been announced that the wedding will take place on August 16 at the Church of Nossa Senhora do Carmo in Rio de Janeiro. The last member of the Brazilian Imperial Family to marry there was Princess Isabelle, who married the Count of Eu one hundred and fifty years ago:

Thank you, Hereditary Princess.

In fact, the last member of the Imperial Family to marry at that church was Princess Isabel's younger sister, Princess Leopoldina, who married there two months after her sister's marriage. And a remembrance service for Princess Amélia's late brother, Prince Pedro Luiz (1983-2009) also took place at the Church of Nossa Senhora do Carmo.

I can't see the picture, because - for some unknown reason - Noblésse i Royautés - can't be accessed from Brazil.

You're welcome and thanks for the extra information, Cris. That's strange since Noblesse & Royautes works for me, but then again I guess that's because I'm nearer to France. I've copied the photo into my Image Upper account for those of us outside of Europe, hopefully you can see it now:

Oh, thank you, Hereditary Princess!
I've already seen this picture. They released another one this week (a very beautiful one):

https://scontent-a-mia.xx.fbcdn.net/...dc&oe=545D4F85

It was taken last year, on September 7th (191st anniversary of Brazilian
Independence) at Château du Lude, the seat of the Counts of Nicola˙, in France, at the wedding of Princess Amélia's second cousin, Marguerite de Nicola˙.

Princess Amélia has renounced

According to Causa Imperial, HRH Princess Amélia of Brazil has just renounced her dynastic rights. She's now HRH Princess Amélia of Orleans-Braganza. Her place in the Line of Succession to the defunct Brazilian Throne now belongs to her younger sister, Princess Maria Gabriela of Brazil.

Princess Amélia of Orleans-Braganza (b. 15 March 1984) [second child and oldest daughter Prince Antonio of Brazil (b. 1950) and his wife, née Princess Christine of Ligne (b. 1955)] married Mr. Alexander James Spearman (b. 1982) [the oldest of the three sons of Mr. Lochain Alexander Spearman (b. 1952) and his wife, née Mss. Pilar Garrigues y Carnicer] today, at the Church of Nossa Senhora do Monte do Carmo da Antiga Sé, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. A reception is being held at Casa Modesto Leal, also in Rio de Janeiro.

The bride - now Princess Amélia, Mrs. Spearman -, a former member of the Imperial Family of Brazil, belongs to the Princely House of Orleans-Braganza. The groom belongs to the family of the Spearman Baronets and, throught his mother, he decends from the Spanish Nobility.

Princess Amélia's younger siblings - Prince Rafael (b. 1986) and Princess Maria Gabriela (b. 1989) of Brazil - are still single. Their older brother was the late Prince Pedro Luiz of Brazil (1983-2009).

Causa Imperial has just released a picture of the wedding.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.n...10a2a43ccf14a8

Princess Amélia was stunning (a fairy tale Princess) and James Spearman used his family's tartan. The bride's mother, Princess Christine, was also very elegant in a blue long dress.

The Duke and Duchess of Braganza and their children were present.

Congratulations to Princess Amélia and James Spearman. Amélia's dress looks lovely, it reminds me a little of the Duchess of Cambridge's wedding dress, although I think I prefer Amélia's. Even though they have family connections, I must admit that I wasn't the biggest fan of James's tartan trousers - but then again, I dislike them in general. A kilt would've been much better, IMO.

Some of the guests wore kilts.

Foreign Royals who attended:

Almost everyone from the Princely Family of Ligne, The Duke and Duchess of Braganza with their three children, Archduchess Alexandra of Austria and her husband, Ambassador Héctor Riesle, Princess Maria Laura of Belgium, Archduchess of Austria-Este, Prince and Princess Casimir of the Two-Sicilies and their sons Prince Luis Alfonso and Father Prince Alessandro of the Two-Sicilias, who concelebrated the wedding, together with Father Jorge Luiz das Neves.

Members of the Families of the Marquises of Garrigues, Marquises of San Saturnino de la Granja, Counts of Stolberg, Counts of Nicola˙, Counts d'Ursel de Bousies also attended, as well as lot of British aristocrats.

His Holiness The Pope sent his personal blessing to the couple.

Experts are saying it was the greatest wedding ceremony held in Brazil since the Empire, in the 19th century.

No, he's catholic. Aparently, he, his parents and brothers are the Catholic "branch" of the family.

Do you think they'll release more pics? An official picture, perhaps? Could it be covered by any magazine?
