Oh Lord, I guess it was true CP and Sofia had chosen the music for the entire wedding without consulting the Royal Court! Not very regal, but an American audience will enjoy it, I suppose

The music was different and the gospel at the end showed their joy .

Gospel music is common here in weddings here in Charleston but I'm a little taken aback they used it at a royal wedding and I'm loving it. They even sang a bit of Janet Jackson's "What Have You Done For Me Lately"! If they had one of our gospel choirs they would be dancing in the aisles!! Congratulations to the newlyweds! Well done!

What a beautiful wedding. The Swedish Royal Family really knows how to do it best.

God Bless Their Royal Highnesses Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia of Sweden, Duke and Duchess of Värmland.

Currently having some very weird images of Queen Elizabeth II walking down the aisle to that music

Well, not quite sure what to say but all that matters is that the bride and groom looked to be having a beautiful day

Seen this on the live stream. Sorry I am a traditionalist, I would have liked different recessional music, but it is their choice and could reflect that they are a modern couple.

Well, I don't think we will ever see (or rather hear!) another royal wedding like it!

This Northern Irish audience member is enjoying it! It's a joyful day for celebration and that was reflected in the gospel music!

Joyful, Joyful would have sounded better with soaring strings ... rather than in full concert style. The only thing missing was dimming of the lights and lighting of the matches :(

Why do we need royal families, if they don't take care of the traditions? The wedding was just as cheesy as I thought. Maybe they like the music but one could expect a little more from a royal wedding. It was just as disappointing as expected.

That was lovely, wasn't it! I do hope Victoria and Daniel have another baby. Daniel clearly loves little children and they were both clucky with their little niece.

This American did not really like the music. Though they left the church to the same piece my husband and I did, I like our arrangement better. It was a bit jazzier than how Beethoven wrote, but not as gospel as the version played at Sofia and CP's wedding.

I've been sneaking peeks at the livestream of the Swedish royal wedding. Very nice, lots of tiaras, sparkles, etc. The bride looks lovely, and there seems to be a lot of emotion. The music (except for the hymns) that I've heard so far leaves a lot to be desired. It's a church service, people! But then, I'm a fussy, old Lutheran/Episcopalian church organist, so I'm a little hard to please in that area.

QM is wearing the red dress she wore for her birthday celebrations and the Baden Palmette tiara. Mary in blue wearing her wedding tiara with the added pearls. Marie in green wearing her wedding tiara also. QM walked as though she was having some pain Fred looks a little tired, but otherwise OK.
