Daniel told to Aftonbladet that he particularly remembers a very special moment on their wedding day. He thought that it was absolutely fantastic when Victoria came into the church, and he saw how beautiful she was. The tears just came pouring out, Daniel told about the emotional moment.

I read somewhere that the structure of the palace was not built (back in the old days) to hold so many people. Part of the "cost" of the wedding included some renovation and reinforcement work at the palace. So this story about the floors shaking is quite plausible- especially when you add "rock" type music and foot stomping type of dancing. This palace was more likely built for violins, harps and slow waltz...

I'll say it again , it was a wonderful wedding and it touched me like no other. I think Daniel will do well as a prince and as a couple they will do well too.
The only thing: the King's body language to Daniel. IN the few times they greet each other it was a good handshake, no big warm hug. It is still King to subject, not father(in law) to son. Don;t get me wrong, the king looked genuinely happy for his daughter and said all the right words, and led the cheers etc. but I can't help thinking he still holds some reticence to Daniel. It's like "OK prove to me that you fit in and deserve her". But may be he is the kind of father who thinks no one is ever good enough for his little girl. Only my opinion.

Congratulations to the happy couple and cheers, everyone.

PS- Thank you LadyFinn for the videos! they were great.

Where would this 'somewhere' as a source be? The 'White Sea' ballroom has been holding parties of people just as large as the wedding party for more than three centuries, and the 600-room Stockholm Palace is, if anything, rather too massive and sturdily built.
Of course the story makes for nice anecdote-telling though.

No. The only recently restored room used during the wedding was the Bernadotte Gallery, where the cutting of the cake took place, but this restoration work wasn't done in connection with the wedding.

I have never seen a royal wedding at which so many different exterior and interior settings of a Palace were used so efficiently and beautifully.
Everything was planned, designed and orchestrated to perfection.

I never said I had absolute knowledge. I only said this is plausible based on an article i read- and no i don't remeber which one. When I find it ...etc I'll let you know .

Evidently Boris you claim to have "inside" knowledge. Why don't you tell us more?

Where is it evident that I claim "inside" knowledge?
Everyone can read books about the history and architecture of royal palaces... and everyone can catch up on the latest of restorations on the Bernadotte website. It's an ongoing process as with every historic building of that size and importance.
I just feel uncomfortable when nice anecdotes aren't treated as such. IMHO it's always more agreeable to sepearate facts from fiction.

You have absolutely right: beside the hapiness of those two stunning people the next things who impresse me was images with this beautiful city Stokholm and the Palace.
My first thought was : Oh my God I have to go to see these wonders.

The King doesn´t normally show his feelings, there is only one photo of him kissing the Queen, it was at their wedding, and that was a "secret" kiss, which one photographer got. That´s why the Queen was so suprised when the King gave her a rose and a kiss on the hand. I think that the King thought that if he would have hugged Daniel, that may have looked a little bit exaggarated because they haven´t communicated much together in public. But when Daniel spoke to Victoria and to the King and the Queen, the King seemed very warm towards Daniel. And when Daniel had finished his speech, the King went to him and said "Bra gjort! = Well done!" to Daniel, it was heard by the microphone though the King thought that the microphone was off then.

"Well done" was indeed not just the speech of the groom but the whole inscenation of the wedding. Since I was a little girl and saw the wedding of Princess Margret I saw several royal weddings on tv, as the clothes always interest me and there is still a little girl somewhere hidden inside of me. But I remember only three, besides the one of Princess Margaret the one of Charles and Diana, and the recent spanish one. But this wedding tops them all and I really doubt it will be topped anytime soon. Not just because of the immense sympathy between bride and groom and the smiles and tears in the audience which mirrored their joy, but because of the work of all the countless and nameless others who worked for it. Me too now wants to travel to Sweden, which seems to be a kind of paradise where the days never end and everybody is friendly, cheerful and handsome amidst lovely nature and beautiful sights, while romantic music is being played. As a public relations act, which it also was, it certainly worked for me!

The Swedish photographer Bengt Kjellin from Göteborgs-Posten has taken advantage of the advanced photo techniques "GigaPan" where 200 zoom photos merged into one.

This means that every detail of the image can be viewed by zooming in from the extreme position, which depicts the Swedish Stockholm Castle. Truly amazing!

P. Iman doesn't smile in any of the pictures. I can understand that it is boring for her but it is a wedding.

I wonder why they brought her if she's so young for these kind of events?

She's 13 nearly 14, i would think that was an alright age to attend a wedding and not look that bored.

Yeah but she sure did look like she'd rather be dead then there.

Rather be dead is a little exaggeration IMO.
Well she's old enough to be at the wedding, and she should have put on a smile and at least looked happy. If she was truely ill perhaps, she shouldn't have come a lot.
Why wasn't her elder brother invited?

I haven't seen any photos of the King hugging Carl Philip, though I think I see what you mean.

Has anyone got a picture of the King kissing Victoria's hand before handing her over to Daniel? I thought that was a sweet moment!
