I never really understood why they didn't marry in a Swedish church. It is customary that a wedding takes place from the bride's home, unless the groom is the heir. But the groom was a younger son.

That might be the point, they could hardly have a RC ceremony in Sweden.

The Prussian branch of the Hohenzollerns are Lutherans, but Princess Birgitta married into the Sigmaringen branch of the family which are catholic.

An Ard Ri, I have no idea if Birgitta converted or not.

From the blog of Trond Norén Isaksen:
"At the time of her marriage Princess Birgitta converted to Catholicism, but has stated that she has since “distanced” herself from the Catholic church due to her resentment over how “they forced me to sign a paper saying that I should live as a Catholic and raise my children as Catholics”."
Trond Norén Isaksen On this date Princess Birgitta’s 75th birthday
