Thanks, I was not sure about that, but I ended up trusting what the photo legend was saying... I'll delete it now

I read in a book, that both Theodora and Alexia were the bridemaides. But I don't think so, Theodora, yes, but Alexia, not.

By Màrius Carol, from La Vanguardia de Barcelona


More than 200.000 Barcelonans have spontaneously expressed their affection to Infanta Cristina, while the ceremony was attended by 1.500 guests, among members of royal houses, representatives of the State and civil society.

The solemnity and simplicity characterized both the ceremony and the stroll by the decorated streets of the Catalan capital, which was followed by 1.000.000.000 people throughout the world. Discretion and sobriety were the common denominator of a day, when the bride paid homage to her city, by the modernist embroidering on the train of her wedding gown, which seemed to reflect the ceramics of the house of Batlló, at the sidewalk of Gràcia, through which the couple have strolled on board of a Rolls Royce, way to the Palace of Pedralbes.

Infanta Cristina punctually arrived at the altar at 11 o’clock in the morning. At 11:30, the couple answered the traditional "I do" to the question of the cardinal archbishop of Barcelona, Ricard Maria Carles, who pronounced the sentence according to which what God united, Man would not separate. This way, Cristina de Borbón and Iñaki Urdangarin became husband and wife, before the eyes of 1.000.000.000 people, who followed the ceremony on T.V..


The day had begun at 9:00 o’clock in the morning, when the first guests started arriving. At the first row, destined to the royalty, the protocol established the seats of the kings of Norway, Sweden, Lesotho and the queen of Jordan. Immediately behind them, there were the Grand duchess of Luxembourg, the princes of Liechtenstein, the great master of the Order of Malta and the prince of Monaco. At the third row, there were the heirs of Monaco, Jordan, Sweden, Belgium and Denmark. The witnesses (who were seated between the area of the royalty and the one destined to the main Spanish authorities) were played by Alexia of Greece, prince Kubrat of Bulgaria, Cristina de Borbón Dos-Sicilias, Victoria Fumadó, Carlos García Revenga, Roberto Molina, Ana Perez, Fernando Barbeito, David Barrufet, José Esteve, Ramón Esteve, José Montero, Jordi Pujol Xicoy and Jaume Reguant. Although occupying their seats among the family, prince Felipe, infanta Elena, her husband, Jaime de Marichalar, as well as Miguel, Ana and Lucia Urdangarin were also witnesses .

At 10:30 a.m., the Prime Minister José Maria Aznar arrived and ,ten minutes after him, the groom arrived, by the arm of his mother, Clara Liebert, who was dressed in a two pieces of hazel colour. The avenue of the Cathedral vibrated then with a warm applause. While waiting, the groom showed his seriousness in front of the altar, talking with his parents and dominating the scene.

At 10:45 a.m., it was the time to prince Felipe (who was dressed in an uniform of lieutenant) arriving by the arm of the Queen, who wore a two pieces with a matching hat in pale lilac. Infanta Elena took a pink suit with embroiders and a great hat that hided her eyes. Three minutes afterwards, the cardinal made his entrance by the door of the cloister. Then, at 10:55 the courtship formed by the Dukes of Badajoz, followed by infanta Pilar and her son Juan Gómez-Acebo arrived; then, there were the Dukes of Lugo and finally the Queen, by the arm of the Prince.

The Rolls Royce carrying the bride and the King stopped then in front of the Pia Almonia and the Infanta appeared radiating and splendid, with a gorgeous gown with a train of 3,25 meters long, with embroidered modernist drawings in silver thread. The off-the-shoulders dress was made by Lorenzo Caprile. The tiara, made of gold, silver and diamonds, belonged to her mother the Queen, while the earrings belonged to Queen Victoria Eugenia. Six godchildren of the bride and groom, along with Theodora of Greece and Lucia Gui Urdangarin, helped then the bride with the train of the gown.

Punctually at 11:00 o’clock the courtship entered in the cathedral. As soon as the Infanta arrived at the altar, she received a kiss from the groom.

Before the rite of the marriage, cardinal Carles read a homily in which he emphasized that the bride and groom were a reference for many families. In this sense, he encouraged them to make their love visible. Speaking both in Castilian and Catalan, the cardinal valued the simplicity and discretion of the couple, which was visible two weeks before, at the funeral of Mother Teresa of Calcuta. Finally, and before formulating the vows, Infanta Cristina asked for the authorization of H.M. the King, who answered with an affirmative gesture (a protocol request that was not observed in Seville, when Infanta Elena forgot it, due to nervousness). The interchange of the rings was an exciting moment, while the face of the King reflected his joy better than what any word could tell. Urdangarin did not follow the Catalan tradition, and put the ring on his right hand.

After the mass, it was played "Aleluya" of Häendel.

The exit off the cathedral was accompanied by the applause to the Kings and Prince Felipe. Besides, also the names of Albert of Monaco, Phillipp of Belgium and Victoria of Sweden were shouted.

I must have a look at this issue of Hola (with Cristina's wedding) to see if there are photos that hasn't been posted before.

Well, according to my own theory, all hats prove to be a mistake...

Four days before the wedding Cristina and Iñaki received the “arras” that would be used at their wedding. The “arras” have in one side the King’s face and in the other Madrid Royal Theatre.

Infanta Cristina was really radiant on her wedding day... I can easily understand, I would be the same if I was indeed marrying a man like Don Inaki:p !
Very nice dress, and her train is one of my favorite! (for example, I liked CP Mary's dress, but not the train...)

Later they had lunch with President Jordi Pujol who offered them a necklace in gold and diamonds by Puig Doria Jewelers symbolizing youth, sports and the Mediterranean. Also, they were offered a facsimile edition of “Libre d’hores de María de Navarra”.
