Madeleine is so beautiful that would be impossible to her looking bad in her wedding day. However, I was expecting a different dress, not a romantic type like this one. And I was expecting the Cameo tiara too just to see how it would like on Madde.
Chris was so happy, so in love, it was very touching.
I think the service was too short but at the same time it was better than William and Kate wedding and all those songs and lectures. Here in Brazil the services are short too (sometimes really short).

Well he's engaged to be married, so I hope for his future wife's sake that he doesn't regret his split from Madeleine. Both Jonas and Madeleine have moved on with their lives and found love with other people. I imagine they are both happy with the way things turned out.

Estelle, Victoria and Daniel were the highlight for me too. Estelle is absolutely adorable.

This was I think first and foremost for Madeleine and Chris a family wedding. There is no reason her niece should not be there.

Jonas has a lovely fiancée, they are getting married in August. And the beauty isn't the thing which makes people happy, it is the life they share together.

Especially if Madeleine wanted her there.

A nice 24 pic gallery from Berlingske: Svensk prinsesse fik sin Chris | www.b.dk

I see all who wear uniforms are wearing the mess uniforms.

The sentry at the sentry box is a dragoon. The guards lining up along the red carpet outside the church are grenadiers.

I'm fairly certain that it was Madeleine and Chris's choice, so apparently Madeleine didn't mind for her little niece to "steal the show" (it's what you make of it, I suppose, because I think that while Estelle was super adorable, Madeleine and Chris were still the ones I focused the most on). I'm sure that Victoria and Daniel wouldn't have brought her, had Madeleine not wanted it.

I agree; I would definitely have liked more solumn, traditional church hymns instead of the (pop) songs at both recent Swedish royal weddings.
And while all 1.5 year olds are cute and eye-catching, the focus should be on the bride and groom that day. Fortunately, no toddler tantrum to disturb the ceremony today

Chris O'neill has completely won me over with his emotional reactions today. Best groom since 14 May, 2004

Would the May 14, 2004 groom be Mr. UserDane?

3.) Why on God's good earth did the TV cameras focus on those violinists at the end of the ceremony and COMPLETELY MISSED Madeleine and Chris bowing to the King??????
1. This is Madeleine's wedding and it is as she wanted it.

2. I don't like kids at weddings either, but see comment No. 1.

3. Some place some where there is a shot of them bowing to the King AND Queen. We just haven't seen it yet.

It's myrten. Don't know the english word for that plant, sorry.

When the kings grandmother Margret married our king and moved to Sweden, she brought a plant of myrten with her. It's been nurtured ever since those days, and it's tradition that all royal brides in Sweden wear some myrten in their hair.

I simply focused on the bride and groom it was their wedding. Estelle was a guest like everyone else just a very cute one.

Thelady at on the 3rd row at Chris' family side (next to the orange turban) has a serious tiara...
Yes, I'm with you, Marengo. This is a beautiful wedding...but, I can't stand trite songs. I was going to say at weddings. But, actually, I just can't stand trite songs, ever.

It appears from the photos that Princess Charlene is not wearing any jewelry at all. Perhaps there was a mishap with her belongings. Even if she would have chosen no tiara, she would normally wear earrings.
